Melissa's Quits

I can't believe that I have only blogged one time in the last two months. I have been really, really busy and blogging has gone on the back burner. I've done a bit of quilting and a tad of sewing and lots of volunteering at my church.

Instead of writing one giant post and trying to remember everything I've done in the last month or so I'm going to TRY to blog several times a week the rest of the year and catch up on my stitching activities.

I had the honor and pleasure to quilt two quilts for a new quilter. My friend Pam's daughter, Melissa, has recently discovered the joy of quilting.  She made quilts to give to two of her sons for Christmas and I volunteered to quilt them for her. They are wonderful quilts and I wanted to show you how different they look-both are made from the same line of fabric and both are the same pattern.  But color placement makes all the difference!

Aren't they gorgeous?! The quilts are back in Maryland with Melissa, all bound and ready to go under the Christmas tree. 

Thank you, Melissa, for trusting me to quilt your beautiful creations. I hope they keep your boys wrapped in love for many years to come. 


  1. I like the scrappy look of the star blocks. Interesting fabrics.

  2. Really neat quilts. She did a great job. I have made this quilt twice. Once from a kit where I got the pattern by Amy Gibson. The second only recently, all in blues. It is easy and quick, but looks wonderful.

  3. Neat how it is the same quilt pattern but looks so differently with a light or dark background. So nice of you to quilt them!
