Quilt Festival Entry

I think my favorite quilts are my row quilts that I designed several years ago. Here is the autumn one...

I have since designed a barn in place of the building. The barn is definitely favored among my quilt classes. I have also designed a row of corn and a picket fence combined with pumpkins for those who struggle making the apple tree blocks. They were really a crazy design anyway that should have been paper pieced. Perhaps someday I will redesign them.

and here is the Americana one. This Americana one "really" needs some more quilting put in the striped borders so that it will hang better. I was in a hurry to get it ready for a quilt class and just never went back and finished it -- naughty me.


I taught both of these quilts, each in a different year, at Annual Meeting for the Utah Quilt Guild. I have felt honored, also, that a local guild chapter has resurrected my patterns this year as they have been making a row a month.

There is also a spring row quilt in the collection; I'll look for a digital photo to post. I intended to someday make a winter one, but it is pretty much on the back burner.

Love them. I wish I had a spot where I could hang quilts. But they would just get little boy fingers all over them. Maybe some day!

Your quilts are beautiful, but you need to remove the apostrophe from daughters, which is a plural not a possessive.
