Here is a peek of the one I sent to Trish, with the Patriotic theme. This was JULY's quilt, but I couldn't muster it until now.
Oh, I can't wait to show it, since it took weeks of my life to get up the nerve to make it! And understand how to do it. It was a real labor of love. I really stretched my technical skills for this one. I am pleased with it, and very glad I learned what I did in terms of sewing-growing. However, I think I might have to upgrade to a sewing machine with a free motion foot! Nuff said about that.

The next quilty peek is for the Sunny and Warm theme I sent to Sher.
This was for August. I had a blast making this one too. I enjoyed using different textures of fabric, and just going at it with color! It is getting dark and grey here, after the rainy summer (non-summer) we just had. It was a tonic to work on an intuitive piece. Can't say much more, except that the original pattern that I used as a jump off point is from a magazine from 1993! I loved the pattern so much, my mom sent me an extra copy of the issue when I thought I had lost it forever during a move. Thanks Ma!
