King Size Quilts

A favorite of mine.  I first chose the border print and then selected other like colors.  I never would have guessed to choose Olive for a color if it had not been in the border print.  The mariner's compass is a Fons & Porter pattern.  I couldn't bring my self to make more than one block, so that is the center, then just started adding stars and other blocks around the square until I had a king size quilt.

This is a pattern called Meadow Lilly by Lynette Jenson.

Guthrie Quilting Friends block exchange

 A group of Quilting Friends made these block for me.  We each provided 9 inches of our at least 3 fabrics to the ten ladies in the group.  We drew names for the month we would receive our blocks, then as our month approached, each of the ladies made at least two 12 inch blocks from the receipents fabric.  On our month we would receive 20 blocks to put together as we wanted.

  2. I love the lilly/Irish Chain quilt - can't believe it is Thimbleberry's! Is it from a book?
