Show & Tell Tuesday

Show & Tell Tuesday


It's Tuesday again and time to share a few of the quilts I have made. 


Trip for Two to Boston





These two quilts were pieced and quilted in 2011 from the same batik fabrics. They are called Trip for Two to Boston.  Strip sets were made and then the alternate setting was achieved by carefully placing the order of the fabrics.  

 
Each quilt measures 41" X 54".  I did the same overall quilt pattern on each quilt.  I used batik fabric on the backs, as well.



The next quilt is the third in my set of monthly rag quilts.

March Rag Quilt



It is for the month of March and it has a St. Patrick's Day theme...complete with shamrocks. 


It was completed in 2009.  I love this quilt on my kitchen table during the month of March.   It measures 23" square.  I used pretty homespun fabric that frays so nicely.  When making a rag quilt, some of the seams are done on the outside of the quilt.  Then it must be washed and dried to achieve the fringed appearance. 

Hopefully you have enjoyed viewing these quilts.  Next week I plan on sharing two more quilts that I have created.
