Have I Shown You These?????
Anymore I can't tell if I'm coming or going; and I can't remember if I shared these with you.
When school let out last June I went on a top-piecing binge. Then I took the tops to Donna.... my BFF Longarmer . She does great work and I'm always pleased with how my quilts look.
Anyway, the Halloween quilt was originally going to be a swap of stars made with Halloween prints. That didn't happen, so I took my Halloween prints and just decided to make a Turning 20 Again. I love how that quilt comes together so quickly. Then with the leftover hunks, I pieced the backing. Being such a busy quilt, Donna and I decided that meandering was the best way to go, and I think it turned out great!
The scrappy quilt was a swap we did at my guild a couple of years ago. We used the Buckeye Beauty block from Quilterscache; I love Marcia's website and she is so generous to share the patterns for free. Doing a scrappy block swap was a stretch for some of the ladies but I think they did a great job. Donna did some fantastic ruler work on this and I think it makes the quilt really shine.
So that is my eye-candy for now. I'm hoping to get a top made next weekend at retreat; I so need to get away.
