I made these -





I needed to make 2 quilts fast. I cut them both and strip pieced the 9 patches -- it was pretty fast.

I think they are both good looking quilts. Twins.

Well, they are queen size - not twin size.

Just twin patterns.

Wow -- they are amazing. Most people would not realize they are made from the exact same block pattern.

Colour and placement makes all the difference in the world.

Great job!!!!!

Okay, be honest. You're hiding a little sweatshop in a back room somewhere, right?! LOL

I love them both....can't decide which light/dark combination I'd like to make myself.

More love on my part. If I had to choose I would pick the pinker one, but I am a sucker for pink.

Is it hanging in a restaurant? If so, lucky diners.

Thank you, guys. wow.

No, I dont have any help in my sewing room. I do however have some help with reading my school books. I get them in pdf form and have the computer read them out loud - I love to listen to things and the process of quilting helps me remember things better.

So, I get two things done at once. That helps.

We have a "First Friday art walk" here - every first Friday all of the places in town put up art and people walk around to look at it. I have revolving shows at three places. My quilts go great at the Mexican place. They even use Fiesta there. The other places are locally/handmade galleries.
