Shawna's Quilt

Barb made this gorgeous quilt for her granddaughter, Shawna. Shawna picked out the fabrics and she must really like pinks!
I'm sure she will be pleased with the outcome!

Shawna chose the Soft and Sweet quilting pattern.

The blacks and pinks of the backing.

Light Hot Pink was the thread used.

Nicely done!

This quilt will keep her awake! :)

A Good Sign

Bluebirds were crowding the bird house this afternoon. I grabbed my camera but couldn't get all four of the ones fighting over this house. It's a good sign of spring!

Checking out the premises.

Better get the nest made soon as the wrens will be coming to chase them out.

Suzanne's Parasol Girls Quilt

This is the second king size quilt that Suzanne had me put together with the 24 embroidered blocks that she had done.
Great embroidery work!

Parasol Pano 001 was the quilting pattern used.

White thread was used.

She chose this deep purple for the alternate blocks.

Now each daughter will have a quilt that their mother made!

The backing.

The banners are rolled up and ALMOST finished!

This Quilt's a Hoot!

The borders really showing the owls.

Mulch thread was used.

Looks pink in this picture but the backing is really brown.
