I am very much interested in receiving photos of your quilts. This last clue has a photo of my quilt with Gift Card Pockets.
Thanks to all who are participating or will use this pattern to make a quilt in the future.
One Quilt Size - Twin Quilt – 74″ by 92″ (188 cm by 234 cm)
This quilt was made with fabric purchased in 2010 in Paducah, KY.
DH and I went there and enjoyed every quilty minute.
I found a fabulous sale on Kona solids (remnants) at Hancocks of Paducah.
I bought it all.
I had a very interesting selection of fabric colors to work with.
That fabric inspired me to create a quilt to remember my fun visit.
I quilted it on my domestic machine. I stitched in the ditch along the lines of the bargello pattern.
I am giving it to my son for his birthday.
59” by 59” (152 cm by 152 cm)
Made for Gracie.
Instead of making lots of tiny, setting triangles I use squares. Then I do the quilting. When the quilting is done I trim the squares into triangles and then do the binding.

Marie likes green.. hence the green quilts.
I will use a scrappy green color palette in the quilt.
The background will be scrappy neutral colors.
Marie likes Quilt #1 and Bill likes Quilt #2.
They will be getting married in June so I need to get going on the quilt top soon.
Fortunately Marie is a longarm quilter and I am not so she will get to quilt her own wedding quilt.
I will be creating a pattern for their quilt as I am making the quilt top.
