Sometimes in the middle of winter you just really want to see some pink, some rose, some bright pinks, some lavenders, some light blue. With a hope that you might be feeling that too, we selected a few lovely quilts, or quilt pieces, tonight to feature that seem to satisfy that yearn. All have recently been shared with us by our readers and the captions are in their own words. We hope they inspire!
from: Barbara Gibson: “Do any of the rest of you have a block you love so much, you just can’t quit making it? For me, it’s Dresden Plates…..so here’s the latest “stack” of flannel plates waiting to become a baby quilt…Merry Christmas to all of you out there….don’t forget to take time to sew amidst all the hustle and bustle!”
Yes, Barbara! There is a real beauty in this. Even as overlapped block components they show they are a work of art.
from: Diane Hemgesberg Carl: “I made this quilt last month fo my daughter-in-law’s birthday.”
from: Jean Nolting: “Here is a miniature paper pieced Sue.”
from: Eileen Lloyd: “This is my mitten quilt”
Thanks Eileen, Jean, Diane, Barbara and everyone else who has shared their creative spirit with our quilting community at 24 Blocks.
