Quilts

FRIDAY!!! One week of work down and about 5 to go...yea!!! This quilt of squares is a request from a family member. I made him one years ago and he tells me it is in shreds....I love that he used it to death and gladly made him a new one....it's going out to be quilted and he will have it soon. The fabrics are mostly mine, with some by Judy Robertson...a great fabric dyer that I met at Quilting-By-The-Lake in Upstate NY a number of years ago.

This is a baby-size quilt I made from my fabric to show customers just one way to use the long narrow pieces I dye. I love color! And I think vibrant color in a baby's quilt is stimulating to their minds and creative spirit.
Tomorrow should be a beautiful day here, so I'm going to be dyeing....

Now I want to make a big squares quilt too. Darn, no fusing on this one, as it has to be washed. Cats!
