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.



  1. Love them all, but especially the Threadhead one. Mine like it is currently on our bed and I live it better every day. Good to see you posting and I apologize for not writing.

  2. Your quilts are beautiful and you've been so productive this year. Will you be doing Bonnie's new mystery EASY STREETS that starts this week? How's the laundry room coming along? Still waiting on some of my little finishes in the rooms too.

  3. All your quilts are beautiful!!
