Whirlwind summer

I am still here!.....really!!
It seems like the summer has flown past in a whirlwind! Lots of family and fun, and some sewing, but whew...where did it go???

I do have a couple of finishes...although they are both the same!
I made this as a gift for a friends daughter, for her wedding...

And my daughter told me how much she loved it, and wished it was larger to fit her what is a mom to do??? Sew another one...bigger!!

This is a quick disappearing 9-patch, so went together very easily. I love this fabric, even though I almost never use brown! I think the silver highlights are beautiful. It is Northcott fabric, "Stonehenge Ginko"

The backing was from my stash..  The smaller one is quilted with "bubbles"..

And for my daughters, she requested my old standby the "echoed teardrops"

We are off to Scotland now....which may be a separate country by the time we get there!! Wow, it will be interesting to hear about "the vote" and the outcome while we are there!

Hope you all had a great summer! And I hope to get back to my blogging more regularly when we return.

Linking up to TN&TN...check it out...celebrating the third year!

  1. It may be the same pattern/material, but the quilting and backing (and size) just makes each it's own. Safe travels

  2. Both quilts are very pretty. I love the colour combination. Enjoy your trip!


Please leave a comment or just say hello....It's nice to know I am not talking to myself!
