I still have two projects I can't post, but the recipients should have them by next week!
This is the last of the samples I made for my friend's shop. Yes, I used the same pattern with lots of panels. She provided all the fabrics.
I went to a retreat at a new to us retreat house. I was with 8 friends. We were in a farmhouse across the road from St. Gertrude's Monastery. I walked around the grounds a couple of times.
This photo is in the backyard of the farmhouse. I love the big old barn! The bookcase quilt is a gift quilt I made for my late son's roommates. He was a groomsman in their wedding almost 8 years ago. The husband commissioned me to make this for his wife for her birhtday/mother's day. He said she loves to read and loves shades of blue. See below for other pictures.
I took this photo on one of the beds.
I finally have all the blocks assembled for my Sew Many Strips quilt from American Patchwork and Quilting. I am working on piecing borders, although I don't have the blocks sewn together into a top yet. This will be a queen size quilt made of 1 1/2 strips so it is taking a long time! That is a LOT of sewing. The blocks finish at 8" and have 32 pieces in them. Thank heavens for strip piecing!
I captured some apple blossoms in my back yard. The apple trees are VERY old. We live on an old homestead site, but built a new house in the mid 90's. I look forward to showing the other projects I have finished soon! Plus I started a couple other projects at quilt retreat!
