Baltimore Halloween

I realize that fall and Halloween are a few months off, but I wanted to get this done and submit to the Morgan Hill Quilt Show. I used mostly my stash of batiks for this quilt and purchased only the backgrounds, borders and black fabric. It needs to be quilted now and I'm procastinating because I don't know what to quilt onto it.

Sarah's Garden

I finished this quilt over the weekend. It was a lot of applique but worth it. The pattern is called Sarah's Garden and it is another sample for the store. The flower petals are felted wool and the fabrics are Lecein from Japan. April did a wonderful job with the colors and I hope you like it!

Behind our house is a creek that catches rain runoff and runs quite a distance. During the spring and summer it dries up and various weeds and God knows what else grows in there. There is plenty of wildlife too including ducks, racoons and skunks and of course during the spring and summer we hear a symphony of frogs. So in honor of their music, I hung up one of my favorite quilts. This bullfrog has quite the personality and he makes me smile every time I look at him.

After we got back from Disneyland, I spent some time recovering from a cold and working on this great pieced and applique quilt called Harmony. It is a sample for the store and it took awhile because I did the applique row by row. Anyways, I hope you like it.
