TWIN QUILTS

I finished the twin quilts.  Not identical twins but close.
I can't figure out why there is a spot showing on the top of one in the photo but there is no spot on the quilt.  Maybe from the flash.  Anyhow, one is for a friend that I have never given one of my quilts.  She likes prim style so I hope it makes her happy.  I had to make one for myself also.  The pattern was designed by Cheri and is called "Monday's Quilt".

I am doing a set of stitcheries.  There is one for each month of the year.  The photo is a bit dark and I will show better ones in a later post.
The designs are by Cedarberry Stitches.  Eight more to go.

A friend sent me a wonderful package of wool pieces to add to my stash.  It is good when a friend looks out for you!


I have several more things in the works and will have more to share with you soon.  Come back for another visit.

  1. I LOVE Miss Tessie - it's a sweet quilt. :-)

    The 'twin' quilts are adorable - the one for a friend will be loved. Very cute.

    Embroidered blocks are sweet, as well.

  6. Tessie is such a cute quilt and just right for spring! Your twin quilts are so pretty and it is nice to share with a friend. I'm sure she will love it! I like the look of applique on top of piecing, I will have to keep that in mind. Your stitcheries are going to be great, can't wait to see the final results. And a gift of wool, that would be wonderful. You have some great friends.
