Apple of my eye


I am finished!  I used Riley Blake fabric and a buggy barn pattern. I'll add more photos as soon as it stops raining,


This quilt turned out to be 64"x 90", just perfect for my daughters twin sized bed!




Finding this fabric isn't easy, and so I had so much fun using all the pieces of fabric I had left over to create a pieced back.



Here is my little girl, helping show Mommies quilt (and our corn field).

I also just finished the quilt top of my niece Maddie's graduation quilt.  She will be coming out to college next week and I need to really get quilting on this one.  





I'm still not sure how it will be quilted, but today I will purchase the backing and hopefully get it basted!

oooo! Love both quilts! Fun colors, super fun flowers and chevrons. You could just quilt free-hand straight lines across the college quilt. The fabrics pop so nicely on their own, they wouldn't disappear on you. Easy, fast, modernishly classic.

Wow - your colors are great on both of these quilts. Love them. So bright and happy. The chevron is wonderful. Have fun finishing that up. So nice. :-)

Your quilt is so bright and beautiful, love it! Thanks for stopping by my blog also. I don't get notifications from yahoo users, some technical nonsense, boo! So I couldn't respond through email :)
