Almost up-to-date on BOM

Nothing like waiting until the last day, but I am up-to-date on The Quilt Show's BOM EXCEPT for one appliqued block plus 7 more berries on the 3rd block.  Only 4 more baskets to go!!  Thank goodness.  I am tired of these little baskets.  I'm so glad that you only have to do 4 per month!!!  You can also see the pieced swag border. 

Here is one of the applique blocks that goes in the corner of the basket border. 

When I began this quilt in January, I envisioned a civil war type quilt.  Well, it is anything but civil warish (is that a word????) .  Too many brights have been added but I still like it, I think.

Billie Lauder - Four Patches

Check out this video.  I have never seen this technique to do 4 patches but thought it was great.

Long time since posting

It's been a long time since I posted.  After doing Paula's applique, I did a lot of "bread and butter" quilting so I could get caught up.  I did do two custom quilts.  Here is Nancy's gecko (is that the correct spelling????) quilt:

Sorry the picture is so blurry.
And here is Barb's fall quilt:

I tried a new border technique (for me) that I have been seeing on   You may have to enlarge to see it since the border is brown.  I really like the effect it gives.
Now to do Pat's Aunt Millie's Flower Garden so look for me in a month! <grin>
