January Quilting in March

This year January brought me some pretty smashing quilts to work with.  Wide variety of wall hangings to large size bed quilts. As always a beautiful array of wonderful quilts from many talented women.

First up we have new quilter Dianne.  The coral and gold tones in this quilt is very similar to those found in the west.  She decided to go with the spiral quilting design to give it some movement.  Can't wait to see more of Dianne's work, she's off to a great start!

Stash busting Dorothy has been keeping busy with this quilt.  I love the way she offset the four patches in the sashing.  Setting them on point adds a bit more interest as well!

Judie in NH sent this wonderful quilt.  From what I understand she was less than enthusiastic about finishing it.  What a great quilt this turned out to be!!

Sweet Karla is on a mission to replace all of those smaller quilts for her young adult children.  This quilt is perfect for one of the boys.  The flannel in it makes it softer than soft!

  Love the scrappy look Katherine used for the next quilt.  As always quilts are filled with love and the quilting design she selected will be a reminder to the new quilt owner.

Springtime!!!  Linda's quilt was like having a flower garden in my room!  The floral prints were fantastic and brightened my day.

Lisa's quilts are always a pleasure to work with!  Here's her latest two, love the first one, so traditional and the soft colors of the fabrics...WOW!!

From my home state of Indiana, I got this amazing memory quilt from Mike.  I really like the style of this one.  It's putting the memory quilts on a new level.  Great job, Mike!

Up next we will have Peg in NC.  Not sure if she's busting her own UFO's or what, but she's been really cranking out those tops!  Way to go, keep up the good work!!  I'll more from her in the next couple of posts, stay tuned.  Here's the first of Peggy's quilts.....

Oh my gosh!!  How stinking cute is this little peoples quilt?  Penny in VT sent this one my way, it's for a new little person in her family.  Finished it off with little barn animals.  Too cute!!!

Here's a striking modern quilt from Renie here in NH.  Love the deep contrast of the fabrics that she used.  Her outstanding piecing job really shows with matching the points of the lighter fabric on the blocks.

Another one of those wonderful quilts made and given with love.  Susanne pulled this marvelous heart quilt together for her little grand.  I know it's going to be a favorite for many years to come.  

Feathers, it just had to be feathers for this one.  Terri finished this incredible quilt and it was my understanding that it's for her bed!  Perfect color and fabric combo for this quilt design.

And now we have a mini quilt show from Wendy!  I believe she told me that this will wrap up all the tops she had just laying about. All of the ones in group are superb!    Scrappy ones, I love the variety of fabrics, the redwork in this group, so sweet, the blue and white-WOW!  And the black with the bright, what is not to love?  Great job, Wendy!

Well, that's it for the January quilts.  Lots of beauty, lots of work and most of all lots of love.

Hopefully I'll be back soon with those February quilts!  Until then, take care of yourself and as always, thanks for checking in on me.
