Barb's's Quilts....

gotcha!! 

Sharing a couple of quilts today, both were made by
a "Barb".  One lives in CT and
the other lives in MN!  How funny is that??

Barb in CT delivered this beautiful quilt that just brightened up
my quilting room!  I loved having it and it was a dream to work with.  Barb
is a blogger and you can visit her blog it's:
Checked on her today, and she's showing another fun quilt, looks
like Halloween at her house!  It was fun to meet Barb and her hubbie when
they dropped off this quilt. Here's a couple of pictures of her
beautiful quilt.....



My second Barb from MN sent me this drop dead orange quilt!! 
 It was so fun, I loved the colors and fabrics that she used.  I think I
can tell you that it's a quilt for her hubbie, he probably doesn't read my blog.  
The quilt is an anniversary present that
she has made for him, orange is his favorite color. 
  Their 11th anniversary is in November, so it will be
11-11-11 for their 11th!!  How fun is that??!!

Barb told me that she is a new quilter and found this pattern at
Patchwork Times the pattern design is called Peaches and Dreams. 
Barb mentioned that she didn't use all of the borders, she didn't want
the quilt to be that large. Barb did a fabulous job on this quilt and
I know her hubbie is going to absolutely love this gift!!  Here's
a couple of pictures.....



You can see a couple more pictures of these wonderful quilts
(don't forget you can click on the pictures for a
closer look) at my other blog:

Thanks for checking on me,
hugs,

Greetings Joanne. It's been awhile since I've visited. Don't know where the time went. I'll bet you have loads of fun just looking at all the fantastic quilt you work on. I really like the peaches quilt. Reminds me of the 60s!

Love those quilts, especially the orange one.

Allie said...

They are both awesome - what a great way to use up floral fabrics, that is so pretty! And I love the oranges in the second quilt, wow. Beautiful!

Both quilts are fantastic. Either one is a quilt I'd love to have in my home.

Both of those quilts are gorgeous, but the orange one is a stunner!!!

Wow, I love the orange quilt; it's gorgeous. You do not see many of them. I can't believe that she is a new quilter. I love the fabrics in the other quilt too. The flowers just pop out at you. Your quilting is so appropriate, it looks fantastic.
