Quilting in the new year

 At our Christmas quilt guild meeting, I won 100, 5" squares of Mary Englebreit fabrics.


I made these into a "grandma's house" baby quilt for my friend, Liz.
Liz had given me the very first Mary Englebreit th 1980.s.....
"Life is just a chair of bowlies"


So, making these charm squares into her quilt brought that full circle!
I bought a black fabric with cherries (a delightful find at Joann's!) for the backing, and had enough extra to make new pot holders for my kitchen!


The other quilt I am working on is the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt called, "On Ringo Lake". She based it on colors from a photo taken at sunrise.



I added forest green and eggplant purple to the brown palette she chose....and I love how this photo from the Texas gulf coast has similar colors...


I have all my blocks made, and half of them sewn, on point, into the quilt top. The secon half to be done soon!


So, down to the sewing room now!
