March Quilts

March in New Hampshire ended up being quite chilly with additional snowfall which was great for the tourism industry.  Wasn't bad for quilting either!
Don't forget you can get a closer look by clicking on the photo and more pictures can be found at the other blog:

 Let's get started....

Alex brought me this fun modern quilt.  Using just her scraps she an her friend Kelli put this fun quilt together for another friend.  The bright colors really pop against the silvery gray.

Diane will be way ahead of the game finishing off this Santa wall hanging.  I love the snowflake design that she selected.  The white thread works perfectly!

WOW!!  How about this one from Dierdre?  Great job, keep up the good work!!  Fabulous job of mixing the blues and purples.

Jean over in VT dropped off this sweet little lap quilt.  The Ann Bright Vines design was just perfect to finish off the quilting.

Judy sent this incredible top!  The blocks are made with vintage fabric from her grandmother.  She is finishing quilts for other family members using grandma's UFO's.  The fabrics were a joy to see!  What a treasure this quilt will be for it's new owner.

Joy was busy making this wonderful quilt for a granddaughter headed off to college.  Not overly girly, but a very striking design!  A quilt that will see lots of years of love and use I'm sure.  

Next up is a quilt from Laura.  This was a group project for a special person to these gals.  Love this star quilting design! 

How adorable are the next three quilts from Mary Katherine?  Made for grand niece and nephews, I Spy quilts are the best!  She decided upon a princess theme for the quilting and Go, Go, Go from Ann Bright for 
the boy quilts.

New quilter Michelle from Fl finished up this bright happy quilt as a gift for her Mom.  What a great daughter!  Michelle selected the Circle Flowers from Ann and it made for the perfect finish.

Beautifully done in fall colors is this braid quilt from Sue in VT.  We went with a simple swirl quilting design using a gold colored thread.

Norma sent me this stunning fall quilt.  Loaded with lots of pumpkins, bright gold highlights and sunflowers, this quilt is a real winner!!

What cute and very modern fabrics Susanne used in her quilt.  The black, white and gray mixed with the reds and the blues are a great combo!  The fabric print with the little people is more than fun!

Mostly orange and purples this quilt was made for a college kiddo!  Once Mom, Tammie picked it up she's was expressing second thoughts of letting it go back to school.  Who has not been there with a quilt?  Her son will love it no matter where he is.

Finishing up the month of March is a couple of quilts from Mary Beth.  Love this cute little yellow elephant quilt.  Finished it off with a modern design from Ann, Avocados.  And her second quilt a scrappy one with half square triangles, always a winner!

That's it for March!  Hope to have Aprils up very soon!

Thanks for checking on me,

love to hear what you've got to say..........
