    More queens

    I made another African Queen quilt to hang on the wall. My first quilt went to a friend and these girls were fun to make. Name:  AE7BC273-9978-47D0-A247-369BFB7D483D.jpeg

    This is a great pattern and the way you put the colors together is beautiful. Is this pattern available online?

    Here is a pattern someone found and posted earlier. It goes together very fast and is fun to watch the girls come around. I added one with pink cheeks. Then my friend said I needed a Mexican one for her. You will find those on my quilt
    my DD showed these to her coworkers. I had made a couple of wall hangings with 3 each for her.

    I have seen this design a few times now in various blogs and love it everytime.

    I am currently working on a tabletopper for myself using this block.

    Yours is very pretty and colourful. Nice work.

    A friend of mine made a large quilt and donated it to her church. It was sold at auction with the proceeds going to Lutherdale. The quilt was appraised for $5000 but sold for $1900. She used African fabrics and the quilt was just beautiful.

    I made this quilt and changed the positions their hands pointed and made them different colors and called it "Lucy's Children."
