Xmas Gifts 2012

HAPPY 2013!!
I'm back to share some Christmas gifts that I've made, one for sister and one for MIL.
This one is for my younger sister.  The pattern is Stack-N-Whack Fan that I got a long time ago.  Fabric: Holiday Elegance collection by Moda. I started this quilt three weeks before Christmas mainly because I couldn't think of a gift for her and thought it's time for her to recieve a quilt from me.  It was a lot of pressure to make a quilt in December, but I did managed to get it done in a couple of weeks.
Look who has to get in the picture too!
This second quilt is for my MIL.  When she had some health issues and was hospitalized earlier in the year, I thought a quilt would cheer her up.
The quilt is made from printed flower panels or "cheater prints" with Bible verses.  All I did was cut the squares apart, add sashings and cornerstones, and borders.  The quilt was done at the end of summer except for sewing the binding to the back which I did finished on Christmas Day.  My MIL was very happy and appreciative to receive the quilt as she is also a quilter. 
Look who is checking for her presents under the tree!
