Pink Squares by Claire

 Quilted with the Gingko Garden panto, so if you look closely you can see the dragonflies and gingko leaves.  
Yes, those are sheep in the pink squares.  Too cute!  The backing is the same print only in flannel so extra cuddly.

9 patch blues

 It's the mystery quilt that wouldn't end!  Way back when, I cut up a whole bunch of fabrics to make a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt.  The Celtic Solstice Mystery.  As I worked on the quilt, I realized that I really didn't care for how it was going to turn out, and put it aside.  Then in a fit of cleaning up projects from the sewing room, I started to make charity quilts out of the pieces.  I'll have to look back and see how many this one quilt has yielded so far.  I just looked.  So far, there are 3 complete quilts, but I've got another top hanging off the ironing board right now.  I think that's the last of the pieces from the initial mystery.  I'm so glad with how things turned out.

This one took the 9 patch units in yellows and "lights" and then I alternated those with blues.  Quilted with Blue Glide thread in the "Oriental Cloud" panto.

I love how leftovers so often become something useful in quilting.  Not only are all of the fabrics in the top from previous projects, but the backing started out life as a privacy curtain for my darling Mother in Law before she passed early this year.  Dee was a prolific creator.  Seamstress, quilter, crotchet, you name it.  She is very missed.

9 patches by Kris

 The amazing Kris, strikes again.  I can hardly believe that she just mails me her quilts, we talk via e-mail about how to quilt it, and I send it back to her.  Going to have to meet this lady some day.

 Again, such a beauty!  Kris and her perfect piecing really make this a joy to quilt.  I followed her lead in stitching the on point squares in the border, then stitched diaganol lines in the setting triangles.  I'd keep forgetting where I started at, and so stitch, realize I'd made a mistake, frog that section and back to it.  I think it was worth the time though.

 Feathered wreaths in the blocks, and a feather border in the outside.

Here's a shot of the backing in an attempt to show off the panto design a little better.
