Here are some finishes from this month:
1. The very first "modern" quilt I made was pieced several years ago. I finally had it quilted by Vivian at Ruth's Stitchery.
The fabrics are all Kona cottons. The greens are from a FQ bundle, "Poseidon." The pattern is from Northcott.
Sorry I forgot to take a photo before Anne hung the quilt in the shop! The colors are much more intense in person.
2. Robert Kaufman fabrics chose their own "color of the year" for 2016. It's "Highlight," a vivid yellow reminiscent of the first highlighter pens -- remember those?
I used Tula Pink's "Houndstooth" pattern from her book, "Quilts from the House of Tula Pink." The single black block is a Hoffman batik called Raven. I call this quilt "Crow in the Wheatfield."
3. The third finish is the sample for the May Jelly Roll Party.
It's called "Vintage Tulips" and I used Bonnie and Camille's "Vintage Picnic" jelly roll, along with a few older Bonnie and Camille fabrics.
Snow predicted for Colorado this weekend --
maybe it will be a "sew day!"
