sister quilts


Two sisters,
one loves pink and green, HORSES
one loves purple and green, FLOWERS

I wanted to find a common "thread" with these two quilts...
So on the backs I added a block from each others quilts,
a pinwheel onto the circle flowers, and a circle onto the varied pinwheel

They are off to be quilted, then on to their new homes...
I have so enjoyed this commission. They have two other of my quilts.

This family bought the first
9 patch gather quilt,
"Nothing but kisses",
that was auctioned off for love without boundaries fundraiser!
They also have a baby quilt that I made when their youngest daughter was born.

So I know these quilts are going to good home.
Feels so good.


I was so surprised to open this!!!
I love it! and it has a home on my table.

And thank you to all of you who sent me orphan blocks.
It will be a joy and pleasure to put it together, with bits from all my blog friends...

The mystery quilt blows me away! I'd love to copy it...but need to give credit to the original maker. It is sooo gorgeous!

I just love pink and green and purple and green. I guess I cannot deny my inner little girl.

Lot's of beauty on your blog again today! The pink/green/purple are wonderful - photos look like they are taken in the city - did you forget to go back to the beach? You gift is amazing! And you deserve it.
