August Quilts are here!

Still working on catching up, wish me luck and the stamina to continue!
Don't forget you can click on the photo for a closer look at the photo.

No better way to start this post than with a couple of really great fall quilts followed up with a jumpstart on a Christmas Holiday project.  Sam did an excellent job on mixing and matching all fabrics with these three projects of her.  Keeping the quilting patterns to fit the overall theme Pumpkins and leaves on the first two quilts followed up with Christmas balls on the last.

Our next quilt, a signature quilt was made by a couple of gals for their minister who was leaving the congregation.  I enjoy these works, reading all of the heartfelt messages explains the need to let the minister know she will be greatly missed. Great use of color and the pastel's used for the signature blocks were perfect.

Simple, but bold!  The strong contrast of this one is a real winner!  Matching the yellow of the blocks in small areas of the final border brings this quilt together beautifully!  Simple star and loops for the quilting design.

Bonnie Hunter designs for a win!!  Strikingly high contrast using reds and whites Betsy did a great job on this one!  Blending this many fabrics can be a challenge but this one is a real winner!

Renie needed a quick and easy QOV for a friend and managed to pull this one together pretty quickly.  Constructed from a layer cake guarantees this one will match without hitch!  Swirls and stars for the quilting for the finish.

Here's a beautiful quilt from Norma for her granddaughter.  Super sweet 30's fabrics blended with a multicolor dot print for a subtle contrast.  The newsprint backing is perfectly themed for the quilt top fabrics.  I used a floral quilting design that incorporated hearts within the flower for an extra shot of sweetness.

Next group of quilts is from my friend Dorothy in Washington.  She's keeping her machine busy creating all of these wonderful little quilt tops and ships them to me for the quilting. She keeps telling me all of this comes from her "stash" fabrics!  She can be very creative with her designs and her fabric choices are really great. 

That's it for August!  See you soon with September!

Thanks for checking on me,
