The Quilts

As promised, here are full view pictures of the quilts I've finished recently:

My scrappy Trip Around the World quilt ~ 66 x 78"

I like it much better now that it's done and I haven't looked at it in a while. I couldn't even find the wobblyest quilting yesterday afternoon! (I didn't really look that hard.) I want to call this one "Souvenirs" because it's all bits and pieces from my first 20 years or so of quilting. In the family it will probably just be called The Scrap Quilt, and it's unlikely that anyone outside the family will be seeing it much anyway.

This is the first one I made for the Quilt Gather. I'm calling it "Live, Laugh, Dream" ~ 60 x 84"

And the second quilt for the Gather, "Love Makes a House a Home" ~ 60 x 74"

I got a full shot of the "Chicken Soup" flimsy too but I'll save that for another time.

We had a lovely afternoon in the sun and the shade. It was delicious to be able to sit outside and breathe untainted air for a couple of hours. Maybe that will break the streak of exposures for the time being. (Fingers crossed!)


  1. I love your trip around the world quilt. It has everything a perfect scrappy quilt should have and then some! The light and dark fabrics dance together to create a great visual with striking colors.

  2. GORGEOUS SCRAPS!!! GLORIOUS! well done! I love all the different blocks... just so fun.

  3. I love your quilts!! Somehow, you mix a variety of blocks in a very pleasing way.

  4. These three tops are beautiful. Congratulations on finishing them up. The bow tie border has become my favorite part of the Chicken Soup quilt.

    Your project in the next post is going to be fun. That batik panel is going to make a powerful focal point.

  5. I love scrappy quilts, your are outstanding.
