    Oh wow, is that vintage bark cloth in the third quilt, with the blue blocks?! Looks just like some I have collected.
    Love the quilts!

    It was a free pattern from Hoffmanfabrics.com called Seaside Cottage. I had to make four of the pattern to get a king size quilt for my daughters bed. I will try and attach the link here.

    Hi Jan, are you referring to the second quilt or the last quilt? Those are the two blue quilts. I am not sure what vintage bark cloth is and I have only been quilting about 3 years so I doubt it is vintage bark cloth. The last quilt is all batiks. It has the blue blocks with the brown frames around each block. The second quilt was made from fabrics I actually had in my stash. The blue hawaiian fabric came from a friend who used to own a quilt shop. The other fabrics came from a LQS that I picked up a couple of years ago. What is bark cloth????? Something new for me to learn!!

    All 4 are great, I agree it is hard to choose a favorite. They will all be appreciated and loved.

    Love that third one with the grey sashing, such warm coppery tones! You did a great job on all of them though!

    I love your quilts. They are really pretty. My favorites are 3 and 4. I just love the graphic natural of them.

    Lovely quilts!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Do you know what brand of fabric was used in the third quilt of the orange and browns? All are very nice quilts.
    Always in Stitches,

    So blessed in the opportunity of life, the gifts of nature, and the choice to do good to others. I'm thankful for this day.

    The third quilt I made for my daughter who requested oranges/browns.
    The fourth quilt is for my other daughter who requested blues/browns. They asked for big blocks, didn't want what they called "busy designs" neither of them are quilters!

    Thanks for looking.
    I love all of your quilts -- especially your "big block" quilts. They're not just blocks. Love the designs. And I love your use of cornerstones on the Hawaiian quilt.
    One step at a time, always forward.
