Few more quilts.

Both my uncle and his wife turned/turn 70 this year and I thought this would make good snuggle quilt in their summer house. It was a quilt a long that Joanne at Thread Head hosted and was a bit of a challenge. The blocks are 9" and were great fun to make. I love the alternate blocks. I posted a photo of the top when it was finished and in that photo one of the alternate blocks was turned wrong. It took my mom to see this when I oh, so proudly showed her the photo while visiting in the city. The block has been turned right.

This top was made last winter and mailed to a friend who finished it and donated it to charity.

Here is the finished mystery from last year sewing day with Gudrun Erla at GE Designs I did not like the open spaces so appliqued little flower baskets on them. I'm not that much of a quilter yet that I'm comfortable whit quilting in open spaces like that. But I will be, I'm slowly getting there. Hm... and then I quilted this quilt to death. This quilt has yet to find a home.

Lastly,  here is another top I mailed to my friend, it was made at retreat in May and is a Moda Bakeshop pattern.

That's it for now.
