I fell in love with the latest Piece O' Cake quilt book and my fav quilt design was Blowin' In the Wind. My mother is a whiz at using her incredible stash of black and white fabrics and I thought how fun it would be to try my hand at them and a great excuse to go fabric shopping....And so the fun has begun......

The summer was filled with visits galore!!!! For my mother's birthday, she and my 2 brothers came and it was the infamous "free for all"......I bought mom a wonderful quilt book and she and I proceeded to piece together during our free time. It had been a long time since I had used so much black and I enjoyed using my stash for this quilt! I will add some floral center at the end. The text is for the back of the quilt. Loved coming back to creating words! And mom's quilt has the flavor of double wedding ring to me, does it to you?.....She is amazing! My sister, Sharon, came for the most marvelous visit with my 2 nephews. WHAT A DREAM FOR ME TO HAVE HER HERE!!! She currently has a wonderful blog post about a quilting book club. She is at firstname.lastname@example.org. She is highlighting Pillow Pop which I absolutely love! I used a quilt from the book to create my clam shell tree below. Something so happy about it. The boinging quilt on the left was an impromptu exercise one eve after visiting Pinterest. I loved doing some basic modern quilting with Roxy to highlight the angular branches. I will be making a larger quilt with this design in the near future! The turtle quilt is for my dear friend who loves turtles....and her LOVE IS OCEAN-SIZED.....chose the design of this quilt after seeing my sister's Marcelle Medallion.
