June quilts are up!

I. Can't, Believe. It's. September!!
Honestly, what happen to summer and Dairy Twirl is closed!?!?

We all remember our elders telling us that time flies, the problem is we are old(er) before we actually believe it.  Then all that time  is behind us and we are trying to figure out how it passed so quickly.   Each day seems to pass faster than the day before and I'm telling you it scares the ba-jeebies  out of me!  AND Dairy Twirl is closed for the season!! 

Sigh....well, at least I've got some really great quilts to share!

Here is a brightly colored quilt from Ruthanne in VT.  The orange, pink and blue-ish purples are blending together wonderfully.

New quilter Dianne is doing a fabulous job on her quilts!  How fun are these quilts?   I love the modern quilting design on her first quilt and the leaves were perfect for the second one!

Donna kept me busy for a couple of days!  Her first quilt, fall themed just had to have pumpkins on it and the second quilt we finished off with sewing notions as a quilting design!  So much fun!!  Her third made me fall in love with the Civil War prints all over again! 

Jill constructed this great red, white and blue quilt for a Quilt of Valor.  We teamed up to help a friend get quilts for a few ladies at a veterans hospital.  I finished it off with a star quilting design.

Karen in IN, has some pretty cute little people in her life and has sent me some pretty cute little quilts too!  Her latest is this fun barnyard book quilt.  How great is this?  Makes me re-think all of those fabric books that I've seen.  Good job, Karen!!

Another Karen her in NH sent me this beautiful quilt all in purples.  Using green to float the blocks in the center - fabulous!!  We selected a vine like design keeping the focus all about the quilt.

Melynn has a new little person in her family.  The little cousin will be wrapped in this fun jelly roll quilt with lots and lots of love.  The fabrics filled with hearts will be a great reminder to the little one of the love coming from her Aunt Mel!

Michelle from FL sent this heart wall hanging.  Adding elegant hearts as the quilting finished it up beautifully!  Don't forget to click on the photos, you will want a close up look at these fabrics!

Pam's loves to make blocks!  Here she has paired them with a white fabric which is stunning with the darker tones of the batiks.  We selected a modern quilting design to go with this great little quilt.

The next couple of quilt came from Pat in VT.  BEAUTIFUL soft ocean color batiks with the white made both of these quilts breathtaking!  

Soft colors and pretty prints came together wonderfully for this quilt from Paulette.  Very Shabby Chic'!  What a marvelous gift of love this was.

WOW!  WOW! WOW!  This incredible modern quilt came from Peg in NC.  The solids made for the perfect setting of the wavy line quilting.  Spectacular job, Peg!! 

Here's another Quilts of Valor. This one came from Regina.  Great job, greater cause....  thanks Regina!

What a great twist for a Coin Quilt.  Rosemary really mixed it up with this one.  The greens were matched perfectly and make the quilt sashing just pop!
Finishing it with a modern design finished it perfectly.  Rosemary's second quilt, another green with the bright purple/burgundy squares is just fun!!  A couple of really great stash busters!

Oh, that, Sharon!!  She is my bargello queen!   Here's another incredible bargello that I helped finish.  I LOVE the quilting design on this one.  It's very modern and edgy.  Sharon requested something that makes you think of the ocean and waves and I think I pulled it off.  Don't forget to click for a closer peek!

Another soft and sweet in color and design. Terry finished up this darling blue quilt to keep as her own.  Finished it off with one of my personal favorite quilting designs, Lauren from Anne Bright. 

That's it for the month of June!  I kept pretty darn busy and looking forward to sharing the July photos (hopefully!) very soon!
