Family Reunion Quilt

Here is Judy's latest quilt.  Just like the title says, it is a family reunion quilt -- 35 blocks made by everyone in the family.  HOW COOL IS THAT!  I absolutely love the idea behind this quilt and was excited from day one to work on this - trying to using varying quilting styles to keep all the blocks similar but different and yet to keep the density levels balanced - fun! 

Judy emailed pictures to everyone and I'm going to use her pictures because they turned out better than mine -- I'll just blame it on really bad lighting at my house that day, okay?!! 

So here we go -- there are a lot of them.

March... over?

March is already over?  I just don't understand where time is going nor do I understand my lack of updating this blog... I have set an alarm on the phone for a weekly reminder, now I'm just hoping that I don't ignore it!

So March quilts go kind of like this:

Sally's Florida Quilt -- super duper cute!  It totally says "Florida" -- she wanted something cute and simple, I think we conquered that!  After I shipped this quilt back to Sally she sent me a note that simply said "perfect" -- that made my day!

Then on to Linda's oriental fabrics -- this is a gift for her daughter, lucky lucky!  She wanted bamboo everywhere.  Again, I think we conquered that one too.  Linda was more than happy and hopefully her daughter will be too!

Ellen had a kaleidoscope quilt.  I absolutely LOVE these colors -- I think grey and yellow are big this year, or maybe it's just me...  either way this quilt turned out fantastic!

Then on to Joyce's two color quilt.  Another one I LOVE.  I adore monochromatic quilts, sometimes I think it is harder to achieve awesome results when using just tones and values.  The back of her quilt looks fantastic too!


So that was March... I still can't believe it is April.  Sooooo many crazy things going on in my life right now, more details on the other blog.

Until next time, Happy Quilting!
