November Update

I am currently taking a break in quilting (and nearly everything else) while my left knee heals. I have a medial meniscus tear which is improving with bed rest and I am trying not to go out of my mind with boredom. I just keep telling myself that if I don't follow my doctor's orders my knee won't have a chance to heal. So I am reading and waiting...I hope you will visit my blog at a later time when I am back to "normal" and posting quilt photos again!

Mary's Lap Quilts

Mary has a very lucky family as she made seven beautiful black, white, and red lap quilts to gift her loved ones this winter. She has given me permission to show them to you. I know who family will love them!

 They were each quilted with a different pantograph pattern in either red, white, or black thread. The one above to the left is "Oak Morning" by Kimberly Darwin.


The one on the right is "Pinwheel" by N. Woods.

This one on the left is "Interlocking Surf's Up"
by Diff'rent Strokes, David Hudson.

This one on the right is "American Beauty Garden" from Diff'rent Strokes.

 The one on the left is "Basic Butterflies" by Julie Mullin, the Fiberactive Quilt Company.

And right again,"Glacee" from Willow Leaf Studio, Jodi Beamish.

And last but not least, this pattern is called "Raindrops" by N. Sharp.  Happy Quilting!
