My Productive Weekend

My mom and Ms. Mary came to visit this weekend and helped me bigtime in my quilting room. Ms. Mary gave me the blocks for this stunning blue tie quilt. I put the blocks together this morning and am so excited about it! I'm going to find a gray or blue silk fabric for the border and may put satin or something soft on the back.

I am also making myself a house quilt. It's made from 30's reproduction fabrics and it's very, very busy. I decided I needed some trees to calm it down a bit... I still need to make 15 more trees and 8 more houses. Here are my latest trees...

We also worked on the homespun Crazy 8's blocks for the quilt for the basement. It's coming along nicely. I got all of the fabric cut up for it.

Amazingly, we were able to get Wyatt's full-sized Yellow Brick Road black and white quilt together. I love it! now to find a thin white border and a 6 inch black one with cornerstones...

This is the block of the month quilt that my guild helped me make. The pattern is Diamond Panes. It is for my sister-in-law. The blocks are 14 inches. I'm making an identical but smaller companion quilt of 7 inches that will be a baby shower gift for her eventually.
