This is "Favorite Things" the Girl Gang quilt from a couple of years ago. It was made by a member of my Girl Gang Toni Peerbolte. She added the piano key border and outer border to make it bed size. Awesome work Toni. (I should say, as usual, - she wins ribbons at shows and fairs all of the time.)
This is "Max and Josie's Wedding Quilt". It was done in blues and whites for Josie in my book Say it With Flowers. This version was done by Raedene Frost. I almost like the colors better but then I love fall.
This quilt was made by Wendy Held. She used a quick piece center and added applique from Garden Dance in the border. Great combination of piecing and applique, Wendy. And I really like your color choice too.
And finally I am so excited. My new book, Country Quilts for Your Soul, by Quiltmania is out at last. When they asked for 20 quilts (Carol said to use some of my older favorites as well as newer ones) I was a little flabbergasted. I mean most of my quilts are pretty pattern intensive. It's 244 pages! Somewhat of a Russian Novel.
Well, back to work. I still have the next Girl Gang to finish as well as the quilts for Market. I leave for the show in Nantes, France on the 24th, get back on May 1st and leave for Salt Lake City on the 9th. And I still have to keep up on the Bible Quilt and Over the Meadow. Believe me ladies, applique blocks go where I go. To order the book from Quiltmania (I'll have them for sale later but right now I haven't even gotten one) click on the title of the book above or the picture in the gadget to the right. Thanks.
