If you LOVE purple...!!!

 
This quilt was done by a lady's grandma...it has so much character!  (Wonder if grandma did too? LOL)

 
Some flowers and feather were added and the ice cream border just received some soft wavy lines.

 
Here is the very center of the quilt...such a sweet design.

Big QUILT!!!

This quilt was BIG!  It was over 100 x 100...don't remember actual dimensions.  It is really hard to piece a big accurately and yet she did awesome!
 
 
This was a beautiful quilt made by a friend for her brother who was retiring!  What a great retirement gift!

 
I tried to keep the quilting in the same colors the same.  The red received feathers.

 
Here the tan was meandered and the blue CC's.

 
The brown was treated with ribbons.

 
More feathers on the red border and more ribbons in the brown border.

 
Another view of the borders.

Ok...I am going to try and add a ton of photos of quilts over the next few weeks.  I am totally behind and been so super busy with life, but I would like to work on getting back into posting a bunch of pictures.  Enjoy!
 
So, this was a super fun quilt made by a sweet friend for her boyfriend...for a x-mas gift (last xmas!!!).
 
 
It has some straight lines and fun swirls!!!
 
Here is a sweet baby quilt in pinks and greys!
There are feathers in the colored chevrons and fluffy swirls in the white!

And of course, a shot of the backing!

Rainbows of wool!

Here is another picture of the wool I have been dying!  It looks good enough to eat!  I have a few projects that I have started using them in and will share them with you, eventually.  They are...interesting!
 
 
All the colors from light to dark are represented...I have much more to dye, but these are really turning out great!  I have ordered a turquoise colored dye, but heard that it doesn't work very well...I will let you know what I find out!
I am also wanting to do a different green and a more saturated blue and darker red as well. They had to be ordered too.
