Anyways, while we were taking a quick break and having lunch at Panera Bread, we got a call from Joannie who was on her way home from taking two quilting classes at two different quilt stores. She had picked up some quilts from our friend Terri, a professional long arm quilter. The quilts belong to Marion, Pat, and Karen, so we headed over to pick them up. Next, I'll pass Pat's quilt to her and she will take Karen's quilt and give it to Karen. Sort of like a modern day Quilting Pony Express.
Here is Pat's quilt. Pat has been working a lot with grey lately. This quilt is a "keeper," it's for her own bed. She recently re-painted her bedroom to match. These are our Brown Bagger birthday blocks from last year. There are definitely more than 50 Shades of Grey here! It is gorgeous, Pat.
I apologize for the not-so-great photos. All three are super gi-normous quilts. Joannie and Marion (neither of whom are very tall) are standing on a very tiny landing in order to get some height, I am shooting into the direct sunlight, and I am backed up against Joannie's garden fence as far as I can go.
|I love the sunny yellow border.|
|Standing a little further back to try and get the whole quilt.|
Here is Marion's quilt. It is set in a traditional sampler setting. I really like the addition of the tulip blocks in the braided border.
|Came out great, Marion!|
|Beautiful job, Karen!|
What is a reasonable exchange rate for Pat and Karen to ransom their quilts from me? Lots of chocolate? Oodles of Fat Quarters?
Linking up on Sunday to the Pink Doxies Pet Project Show. Thanks for visiting!
Pugs and kisses,
