quilt a day #9

What a busy day! I subbed for my boss this afternoon and then raced off to a special, early school board meeting. I didn't really want to go that bad, but decided to be community minded and endured sitting on hard bleacher seats to watch the chairman of the school board not get his way so that was fun! I made two quilt blocks for my guild's charity project this evening but didn't take a picture.

The first picture from my files is a quilt from the book Four Seasons in Flannel, but I made it in regular cotton and donated it as a fundraiser for our county 4-H program several years ago. The person that won it was so thrilled and called me to tell me she was re-decorating a room in her house for the quilt! It's queen size and completely machine done.
This quilt is one I saw as a BOM many, many years ago called Old Glory. I ordered the BOM and caused a SUI (shopping under the influence) on my Washington State Quilters group. It took years but I hand apliqued the quilt and then machine quilted it. It's a large wallhanging/throw size.

I LOVE that top quilt Julie! The other is beautiful, but not anything I would ever attempt. It has been so great to be able to "chat" with you here everyday. I look forward to seeing what is next.

Oh that top quilt is wonderful - I need to think about making us a fall quilt.

Two more inspiring quilts! When I grow up I hope to be as prolific with beautiful quilts as you...

about once a year I pull out Old Glory and then see that I did the house in the wrong direction and put everything back again. I'd like to finish that one.
