    Love your quilts they both are so pretty! Flowers and spring colors will be so cheery during the winter, when your snuggled underneath your quilts.

    Marybeth, you made a lovely quilt. It looks like a spring bed full of flowers. Now if that doesn't put you in a happy mood. Very Cute!

I am trying to upload pictures, as we are haeded out the door soon, to go camping, but for now repair man is here to look at Air conditioner! I guess it hasn't worked in a long while! UGH, Mom was pretty comfortable no matter how hot it got! me I die when it gets over 80!

    Yesterday it was 104 in here! not fun to come home to for sure!

    Well my mother did the quilting of it on her long arm but I watched. I got that backing fabric from someone who thought it was "ugly" fabric but I knew it would make this quilt pop. I am so glad you like it Lauri I was so back and forth about what to do. I love using solid colors with a bright colors. Thanks everyone I also love the quilt she made for me. It was wonderful to put over me last night when my hubby was hogging all the covers.

    This is the quilt I made for Marybeth. Sorry, it is not a very good pic, the colors are way off. Maybe Marybeth will take another when things settle down for her.

    oh that quilt is SO Marybeth! love the bright vibrant contrasting colors.. bet her little Charleigh will snag that for herself! and Nexxus you two traded very beautiful bright quilts also! I sure do not like working with solids at all its sort of like an amplifier if you make any mistake it is glaringly obvious. Your is not glaring at all! must be the quilters not the fabric. oh dear. no solid quilts for brat any time soon!
