My lastest quilts in new magazines!

I just received this issue yesterday with my latest Christmas quilt in it called Trimming the Tree! I really enjoyed making this quilt from the Winterbury line by RJR Fabrics! The bow was an older block that I added a thin border to and the tree block is my own new version that I really love. I've been wanting to make a quilt for a long time with a version of the tree block, and this one is just perfect for my needs! I also sell another version of this pattern in a table runner that is now in Keepsake Quilting catalog!
I have a pic from the magazine, and I've added my own picture as well so you can see the full quilt!  I've added a close up of the quilting too.
The newest issue of Fons and Porter now has my Lover's Walk quilt, using the Berkley Square line by Benartex. This was a fun quilt to do, using only 3 blocks and rotating them around the corner stars.  See it also in Electric Quilt's blog dated Aug 2nd http://www.doyoueq.com/blog/?p=2633 using this link.
In the July/Aug issue of Fons and Porter it has another quilt I designed for Benartex from the Floral Fancies line.  It's a cute line using panel squares.
Fall market work is well on it's way, and I'll have more to share soon.  I'm also making the time to work on a favorite project with my friends for a personal quilt using the pineapple block and a pineapple ruler that makes the process so much easier.  I have dedicated myself to at least one day a week making something for myself that is not work related.  It was necessary for my own sanity and happiness!  LOL!  So TGIF has a whole new meaning for me now!  Getting together with friends, sharing and enjoying their company and learning a few things along the way, some quilting related, some not.  Life is good, and I'm so grateful for God in my life and my family and friends.  I can't leave this post without the latest picture of my sweet little grandson.  He is changing everyday-his Mom and Dad say his hair is getting lighter in color, he still has those blue eyes and he just advanced to a new size in diapers!  Now you know I'm a really over the top in love Grandma without a doubt!  Until next time, Keep Quilting!

I made a crib-sized version of the Lover's Walk quilt for my new (and first) grandbaby from the Moda Ooh La La fabrics, and it was the perfect design! Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful quilt pattern with the world.
