Show & Tell Tuesday

Show & Tell Tuesday

Today for Show & Tell Tuesday I will share two very colorful quilts I made a few years ago.  I love how bright colors can make a quilt so cheerful.  I hope you enjoy these quilts as much as I do.

The first quilt I made is called Jenny's Flower Garden, and it was pieced and quilted in 2009.

Jenny's Flower Garden

I followed an Irish Chain pattern and used almost all stash fabric.

This is the first quilt that I attached a pieced border.  Each scrappy square finished at 1 1/2".  

The final quilt measures 86" X 86".  I love to display this quilt at the foot of my bed.

The next quilt is very different from the first in that it only measures 21"X24".  It is similar in that it also is very colorful.

Twist and Shout

I made Twist and Shout entirely from stash fabric.

I made this cute little quilt in 2008.

Jenny's Flower Garden and Twist and Shout are two of my favorite quilts.  Although they are so different in size and different in purpose, they both make me happy.

Words of Wisdom

Never underestimate the power of simple courtesy.

Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching!!!
