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.

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.

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.

Your friend is very lucky to receive one of the twin quilts. They are precious.

The quilts are really sweet. I'm sure your friend will appreciate it very much.
And I do love the calendar of stitcheries.

The twin quilts looks great, despite the spot (it looks like a re-touch circle)
Lucky you, that wool looks nice.
Pretty stitchery too - you've been busy
