Hi Everyone: I know how much I enjoy all your pics; so I hope you enjoy these. The quilt is my first attempt; just 11.5 inch blocks. But I had a double size chenille bedspread that I cut up and incorporated. Boy, did it do a number on my rotary cutter!
The second is a small table top that I used both flannel and cotton.

I will post pictures of the next two projects I am working on when done.

God Bless all, and keep stitching!

Eva Melville

Both quilts are beautiful, but I especially like how your chenille one came out!! Keep up the good work!
