2 BOMs AND 2 OLDER QUILTS

Here's my fourth "A Tisket A Tasket" BOM finished.  I'm current!
Also current on the Willowberry Designs BOM.  Woo Hoo!
This is the queen size quilt that I made for DS#2 and DIL.  The pattern was featured on the cover of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine for February 2003.  I had to look hard and long to find the variety of fabrics that I put into it.  I'm sorry the pictures aren't very good - they were taken before we got a digital camera.  I had this one machine quilted for me.

I made this queen size log cabin quilt for DS#1 & DIL sometime before the one above.  I hand quilted it and I think it took me about a year to finish it.  After that, I decided that I would send large quilts out to be quilted for me.  Hee Hee!  (At least until I retire).  I think this was called Denver Log Cabin.  I'm thinking I need to make another log cabin quilt soon - maybe a scrappy one.  I don't know if you can see the edging on the pillowcases, but it was crocheted by my Grandma.

I'm still working on my April Bunny Hill. Your quilts are simply beautiful. Log Cabin is on my list of quilts I'd like to make. The pink/red quilt is delightful. How special to have those crotched pillowcases made by your Grandma.

Happy Stitching...Ann :)
