Random Quiltings

These quilts were done during December 2012 and January 2013, but haven’t been published yet.

I’ve quilted this quilt one time before, and I was very happy to see another one come to my frame.  I’d like to make this quilt for myself, it’s just very beautiful. Here’s a little bit of the sky:

And this quilt was done in January, a raffle quilt for the Daffodil Festival held each year at the Long Tom Grange, Junction City, Oregon.  This was a five-part block of the month quilt through a magazine.  The group followed the pattern, then in the last segment there was a note that the patterns for months 3 and 4 were published in the wrong size…oops…

The Cardinal and the Butterfly are just wonderful!

When you look at the overall view of the quilt, you can see the amount of work that went into each block.  I could only imagine the amount of juggling the quilting group, led by Elenita Saltmarsh, had to do to make those pieces fit together seamlessly.  I did have a copy of the magazine on hand and could see the very slight differences necessitated by the magazine’s mistake.  The quilt is extremely beautiful, and I know its new owner loves it!

I still have a few more quilts to show; I’ll share them in a followup post.
