To begin with, I thought it might be nice to share a few finishes that haven't been posted yet. This quilt is a "Bento Boxes" quilt made for my mother (since she threatened to pack my flower quilt in her suitcase when she came to visit). We used the leftover fabrics from the flower quilt and this one was designed and cut by my daughter Kayla (age 16 at the time). I pieced and hand quilted it according to her direction since she just didn't have the time or patience.
And just one more for today...this is an Apple Table Runner that I made for my friend Bea. Her whole kitchen is done up in burgandy apples with their dark green stems (too bad my picture looks like orange pumpkins, but I promise, they are really red apples - bad photographer). When I visited her last, she wasn't using this quilt as a runner, but it's hung in a place of prominence on her kitchen wall...I guess she liked it!
Well, that should do for a first back-to-blogging post! Let's see if I can do a better job keeping up!
