    From Sweetly Old-fashioned to Ultra-modern

    Here are two quilt tops I've been working on recently. Different styles, but that just confirms I am addicted to fabric and quilt-making.

    The first is called Granny Squares, which appeared in American Patchwork and Quilting magazine; the second is called Prism in the Forest, adapted from Stony Creek by Jinny Beyer.

    I don't have recipients in mind for either quilt - yet. I just love piecing and finding ways to put fabrics together. Maybe will give the second to my son's girlfriend, as she likes purple.

    I love both of them but I think I like the granny squares one better. It's given me an idea to use up all the squares I cut from my scraps!
    It's not a mistake, it's an unconscious decision to change the pattern.

    Thanks! The squares finish at 1". They were cut from pieces 1.5". A great way to use up Small scraps!

    Both are fantastic! I also find myself drawn towards different styles. It feels good to stretch and do something different. Besides I find my gift recipients have really varied tastes. Beautiful work!

    Your granny squares quilt is so beautiful. The second quilt is a interesting and appealing abstract quilt.

    great three- D effect on the JB pattern and of course who doesn't love the very traditional granny square.

    I love them both...being a Gemini I can relate to both! Is that Jinny Beyer pattern still available?

    Awesome! I sure do like the Prism in the Forest, though! Nice!

    Wow, these are both beautiful, do you need my address?

    They seemed to have changed the format a bit, the pictures all load in as little pics, but if you click on any of them, they blow up to full size - I actually like it, makes it easier to get through a thread, only opening shots you want to look at more closely.

    Both quilts are totally different but beautiful. Your piecing is great and all those borders on the modern one are superb!

    Both are wonderful but the purple and aqua one is stupedous. You did a great job on both of them.

    Hmmm, since I really loved them both I had to flip a coin to make the decision for me. The flip winner was granny squares and it needs to be displayed in my home as you don't have a recipient. Both are equally beautiful.

    I think both are great. I love the numerous blocks in the granny squares, but also like the boldness of the modern one. Great color choices for both. Thanks for sharing.
