    Hi Everyone, I just thought I'd share a couple of my quilt tops with you....they were a lot of fun....

    The first is my sunflower quilt - I used Maywood fabrics from their Full Sun collection - I love that collection.....and I did a kind of sampler quilt - just making blocks that I liked and putting them together in my own little design..it was a riot to do........this quilt top is about 60 x 80..not just have to find a long arm quilter and this this one completed........

    The second one is a 1930's repro. pinwheel block that I received in the birthday block exchange on the Garden Forum - been doing that exchange for the last 3-4 years now - and love it - these are my 2009 blocks that I received....I am so pleased with the way that it turned out - I used 3 other blocks to do a table runner top - and still have a couple left over to put in throw pillows...... This quilt top is about 50 x 70...I am not sure if I should add more borders and make it bigger or should I stop there and make it a throw quilt..what do you all think..I would love your ideas....

    I thought that a soft yellow wss what these blocks were asking for to be joined together...I do have a wonderful 1930's repro for the backing - something different.....but now I'm thinking of perhaps a different softer back - nothing too colorful..I haven't decided on that yet.....

    The blue in the photos of the first quilt top are too bright - the actual color of the blue is a more soft blue......not that bright.....

    Heh BK.......
    Thanks....Yes, Quiting is actually my favourite pasttime - if I could eat fabric - I would... :-) I got all of this love of sewing and quilting for my dear Grandmother, Irene.....I'm the only one in the family that picked up her love of sewing and creativity....

    Fabric probably doesn't have as many calories as food. Maybe that would be a good new diet!

    I think it looks great. You can send it on down to CO.

    They look super! Fabric has lots of fiber, but zero calories. :lol:
