Quilt # 6

This is a shop sample--the pattern is called Touchstone and will make a great baby gift or please a 1960's wild child. I love it!!

Quilt #5

This was started in a class in 2004. I didn't think there was enough contrast between the pieced strips and the main fabric, so started over again. BUT I had all these blocks done, so DH took half and arranged them to his satisfaction (that one has yet to be quilted) and I designed this half and finished it in January 2015. Another 10 year project. Sigh....
The color on the main fabric is really wrong--it's actually a dark navy, not brown---I do have better color sense than it looks like!!

Quilt #4

I bought the batiks for this using the gift certificate I got from DH for Christmas--the border I had in my stash that matched perfectly! the pattern is a basic 5 rail.
Just got home from running errands. One perk to doing them with DH is he springs for lunch! Saw a favored nephew at the restaurant--another major perk!!
