The first quilt is Celtic Layers by Kathleen Andrews. I was so excited to get this pattern at Chicago's International Quilt Fest, I thought it was different and unique. The designer said the celtic designs needed to be hand stitched, but I used my machine. I always look for shortcuts.
The second quilt is New Leaves by Ruth Powers. This was a fun quilt to make. The pattern reads like a counted cross stitch pattern where you make each block individually. Some blocks are paper pieced.
My quilt inspector approves.
