Joan's 1st Saturday

I know it's hard to believe, but this quilt is made up of the same blocks as Norma's in the previous post. Amazing what different fabrics and a different setting can do for a quilt. I certainly can't say which is my favorite because I love them both! I love 1930's fabrics, so I love Norma's, but I love the setting that Joan chose for hers. It just makes the blocks stand out so beautifully. Hard to see in the photos, but I did try to show it. The quilting is a feathered wreath in the blocks, and a single row of stitching between the blocks. The outer border is done in continuous curves, and I love the look that it gave to those blocks. Well done Joan. She says that it doesn't have a home yet, but I'm sure that anyone would be thrilled to have it for their own.

1st. Saturday, 2009

Here is Norma's version of the quilt from the Heart to Hand quilt shop, 1st Saturday club, 2009. Wendy and I chose the book "Better by the Dozen", and we all made the same 12 blocks, but chose our own colors, and settings for them. Norma did hers in oh so sweet 1930's prints, and set them with log cabins. Let me tell you, those are tiny little logs! I believe that this quilt is destined for some lucky person in her family, but I can't say who, that would spoil the surprise. Merry Christmas whoever you are!

2 quilts by Sylvia

Sylvia and her husband are snowbirds, so they live in their RV in Oregon in the summer, and then back to Arizona for the winters. I can't imagine creating so many fun quilts in such a small space, but she makes it work.
This is a pink flannel quilt and it's quilted with ginkgo leaves.

This one is the same pattern done in greens and browns and salmon pinks. I think it gives it a completely different look with the different colorway. This one was quilted with vines and leaves. See you in the spring Sylvia! Keep on quilting!
