Great Memories

Hello Quilters, and Fellow bloggers.
It is that time of year again to visit all those lovely works of art, from quilters all over the world.
I am so glad for friends who keep me up to date on all the latest updates. You know who you are.
I have been sewing up a storm lately and feeling like I am getting some ground covered. Great Feeling isn't?
Amy's Creative Side is so gracious to allow all of us who have a made a quilt either this week, this year, or anytime. To post about it this week. So I am.
I made these beautiful quilts for some friends of mine who were going thru a very difficult time as they were grieving for the loss of dad. Married for 43 years, she wanted to have something to hold on to. So for her and her two daughters, I created these memory quilts for each one.
They gave me 29 of his rayon and silk shirts. I added his daily casual colors of blue jeans and t-shirts.
In  Mom's quilt, I appliqu├ęd a Woody driving into the quilt.The end results are what you see here.

 I hope you like them as much as the three women who received them. His memory lives on.
Thank you for visiting and hope you enjoy this fabulous Festival.

Festival For All

Hi Quilters and Bloggers.
Hope you are enjoying your festival put on by Amy's Creative Side.
The quilt I have entered is one done a couple of years ago.
It was a challenge for our guild, using green and two different blocks. One having to be a Nine Patch.
It was called Go Green Challenge.

I used over 40 different scrap fabrics in my stash and one green floral beauty.
As most of my quilts I do, It is a king size. I have a hard time with little  quilts. Although, I would get a lot more quilts done if i did do smaller quilts. You understand I am sure.
Anyway, I just love how it brings in the outside garden inside to my room and makes it feel so fresh.
Well I hope you enjoy the festival and hope you like my quilt.
Have fun,
