Show & Tell Tuesday

Show & Tell Tuesday

Hanging Gardens

I chose a green and purple batik jelly roll to make this pretty quilt designed by Georgette Dell'Orco.  Georgette is the mother of Daniela Stout, the owner of The Cozy Quilt Shop in El Cajon, CA.  I've had the pleasure of visiting her shop the last two times I was in the San Diego area.

 This rather large quilt measures 97" x 97".  It consists of 25 blocks and it was one of Cozy Quilts STRIP CLUB Patterns.  It took approximately 11 yards of fabric to make Hanging Gardens.

I started this quilt in a class at The Village Quilter in Mt. Holly, NJ in 2010.  It is one of my favorite quilts.

Tumbling Blocks
(AKA - A Tumbling We Will Go)

This quilt was made from a free online pattern at HGTV.  

It was designed by Marci Baker.

I used 6 basic colors;  a light, a medium, and a dark of each color. It was made with out set-in seams using Marci's special technique.

The finished quilt measures 45" x 56".

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