The first one is for Adam, the oldest, and it is called "Fraser Castle" after their Scottish ancestral ties
All three quilts are hand quilted by me with muslin backing. I don't have a photo of the label but I remember that there is one on it. I used a Black Watch plaid for the binding.
for middle nephew, Andrew, I made "Canadian Snowball" I cut each piece out using a template following the pattern in the book "Old Nova Scotia Quilts" For the binding I used New Brunswick tartan because that is where Andrew's Fraser ancestors were from.
For the youngest, David, I made "Nova Scotia Nine Patch" Again, using templates and cutting out each block. for the binding on this one, of course, I used Nova Scotia tartan fabric.
Today Adam is 27 Andrew is 25 and David is 23 and they are all living in Calgary, Alberta. I think they have outgrown their lap quilts, Might be time to start thinking about making them each something new.
