Catch Up

I've finished a couple quilts which I forgot to post here, too busy posting on Instagram and neglecting my poor blog. This quilt is called Ruby from a BOM a couple years ago, all finished and washed, I think it looks fresh and pretty.
This is a gift for a birthday coming up soon. My vision was for it to give a beach or ocean feel, I love the soft blue tones in this quilt.
This antique grandmothers flower garden was made by my husband's great grandma Emma. She would have made this about the 1930's when she organized the quilting group in her home town. I love the red flowers scattered around. 

Happy Quilting.

Summer Quilt

This was a super fast and fun small quilt to make. I used mostly K. Fassett fabrics for the flowers. The pattern can be found on the Cloud 9 Fabrics free patterns page, it's called Amsterdam Quilt.
I'm making a Christmas gift for my daughter, I'm hoping this tablerunner will look good on her black table. I used Gigi's Thimble quilt pattern.
This little quilt was a gift from Mary at Quilt Hollow, we've done a few swaps and exchanged gifts over the years. I sure love this small quilt and Mary's quilting is always outstanding.

Happy Quilting.
