So Much Fun!!

I have been making GFG blocks.  I never thought I would like English paper piecing but I LOVE it!  It is so relaxing.  And this is the quilt I have started:
What to name it?????  Granny's Irish Jig?  Grandmother's Irish Chain?  I wasn't sure about the grey background fabric.  I ordered it from Green Fairy Quilts.  It is a Moda solid.  It looked like a softer grey on the computer but it has a touch of brown to it.  I was really disappointed when I got it, but it has grown on me and I like it now.
I have this on the longarm now.  It is my take on Edyta Sitar's Tree of Life Quilt.  I had to try Deb Tucker's migrating geese for the border.

Well, you can't see the trees but they are there plus a Oak ring block in the triangles.  Will get better pictures when it is finished.

Deb's Posies

This quilt has taken me much too long -- with weather and life, in general getting in the way.  But I really like how it turned out.  Hope Deb does, too!

Our guild had a batik exchange and this is how Deb used her batiks.  Now she is giving it away to a childhood friend!  Lucky lady receiving this!
