    These are two quilts I've made recently.

    The first is Amish inspired. It is 24 in. by 21 in. and hand quilted. I actually made two like this. I'm keeping this one, and the other one I sent to Dotty in NYC for the August DQ swap.

    The second is retro prints that I acquired at a recent quilt show. I love these prints! I'll add some closeups so you can see them better. I feel like the border is too open, so I may add more quilting or something........

    This one is 26 in. sq.

    Amish inspired -- this is the one I sent Dotty

    I like these Leslie! Did you HQ, Dotty's? On the DQ thread colors looked deeper. You do such nice work :-)

    Yes, I did handquilt the Amish one, with grey thread. It is very hard to get a good pic of that purple and dark blue. They are darker than this pic shows.

    I'm glad you like it!

    Gray thread is what makes the quilting design pop on the dark fabrics. WTG
