Under the wire!!!

Here is my square for Rochelle. I love how it turned out! I love the bright geo prints. It is so cheery. I, too, found the backing fabric necessary. It will be a sturdy quilt, that is for sure. Perfect for the beach! Hope you like it, Ro!!

May/June block

Here is my May /June block for Rochelle. It will be hard to part with as it is the perfect size and design for a cushion cover! I used a fabric behind as suggested to keep the stripes in order. I don't think I could have made this block using a different method. 

And, here at last is the quilt from my quilt block 2 years ago - my first quilt! There are still a few loose ends to finish but I am thrilled with it (though now hidden on top of my daughter's bunk bed). Linsay helped to show me how to set everything up ready to quilt and I borrowed her old quilting machine. Et voila!
