    finished my (2) Appliqued Connecticut quilts

    I was commissioned to make 2 appliqued quilts for a house built in 1785 in Connecticut- been working on them for 3 months- finally finished the binding on the second one today , YEA! was asked to wash & dry them when I finished so they would have that (crinkly) look, so, as soon as the second one came out of the dryer I took the pics- ready to get them sent out & move on to other projects. i'm pretty happy with the way they turned out- my first time working with all solids- they are 68" x 96" (measurements requested) there were some challenges.

    no, it is not needle turn- they are machine appliqued and machine quilted (also, recipient's request) she figured machine would be (faster) and cost less--true on both accounts. she had first seen pictures of my wool backyard gathering quilt which was hand appliqued- loved it but wanted something in cottons, done by machine and she wanted 2 which were similar to each other- same fabrics * turkey red, olive green, gold and white* , simplified- not as (involved) as the wool one had been- so these are what I came up with. they are heading her way today.
