Rita McCart‘s quilt has taken a traditional motif, the Sunflower or Aster, and made it bloom! It’s so colorful and we love how there are random petals flying around. It’s fun to see the free arrangement and variance of size, too. Rita writes (with too much modesty)…

“Oneof these days I hope to quilt as fine and great as the people who post.I have not accomplished freestyle quilting so just concentrate on stitchin the ditch and shadow stitching. Here is a quilt I’m working on for alocal quilt show. It is all scrap from some of the quilts I’ve made so far.

Thank you, Rita, for sharing it with our quilting community at 24 Blocks!

Barb de Dios made this very beautiful quilt for her Mom who is in assisted living and missing her garden. So Barb made a garden for her, with the flowers blooming through her trellis sashing. Barb also writes that
afriend of mine gave me a bag of vintage quilt squares/fabric/patterns (some stitched together and some just cut pieces), that were the beginnings of this quilt. There are six flowers from that bag.” The quilting on the borders is also in the Sunflower/Aster motif and is just very beautiful.

We’d like to say “Thank You” to Barb for sharing it with us all and send our best wishes to her Mom!

Barbara Anderson did this baby quilt for her first grandson using Winnie the Pooh fabric she got via Ebay (at a good deal, she adds). Barbara posted back in early May, so we’re hoping she’s a proud Grandmother now! Thank you, Barbara, for sharing such a nicely done baby quilt with us. There’s some intricate work it in!

June Williams made this sweet paperdoll quilt that is sure to be loved by her little niece. June writes,

“Ijust gave this quilt to a Niece for a baby shower gift, her baby littleSami will be born in August. This will be my sisters first Grandchild. Iwas inspired by a quilt my friend made and I used her pattern. It is machine quilted and I really enjoyed putting it together.

And we all have enjoyed seeing it. Thank you, June, for your post!

It’s always good to see table toppers, cloths, runners and placemats done up in bright colors for summer. Mary Ellen Chatigny made this one for the summer porch dining! It’s fun and creative! Thanks, Mary Ellen, for giving us such a good idea.
