More Quilts..........

Click photo for detail.
This 1st quilt was amazing.....The quilt is 21x21.......Its foundation paper pieced and the the sashing is all done in Silk Ribbon ....The blocks are 1/20th of the original size.

I thought this one was striking colors and I luv Applique.....
This is wonderful to me,very traditional feel.



This was made in 1955, my birth year.It was marked $760.I wish I could have brought it home.......Oh well,atleast I have a pic.
Hope to see you soon, Amy

More from DALLAS..................

This is my best friend Pat and I. I am on the right in green coat. We were in Bonnie Blue Quilts booth and I ask them to take our pic...........We can look back at this and say "Remember your first quilt show"......
This was one of my favorite quilts.Notice the Black TOILE border.It was gorgeous.

Guess whose quilt this is?? Pat fell in love with this,and I said "Oh, I know the designer of this beauty".......I felt so proud,lol!


This one was amazing.....The rug is crocheted,the tote bag has real fabric rolls in it,as does the basket.The log cabin quilt is an actual quilt added to the larger one........It was neat.



This quilt was for a 50th anniversary,notice the dates top and bottom.Very impressive and special.




I adore this one, so feminine and delicate........Its a favorite.
Thanks for stopping by, Amy
