Look closely and you can see all the letters of the alphabet in the quilting.  The solid blues in this patchwork pattern showcase the  lettering done in a brown and tan variegated quilt. I challenge you to find all the letters in your name!

This quilt was made by splitting up a large panel into block and adding piecing that gives the illusion of a window pane.  I used a maple leave pattern for the quilting and it compliments the autumn leaf pattern in the border.  This is a quilt for the man in your life!

This is the same pattern that I quilted earlier this year.  In fact, the two quilters are friends and bought the pattern together.  There are a few differences in fabrics and I made a few subtle changes in the machine quilting so that each is unique.

What do you get when you take two fabrics, cut them into narrow strips and sew them back together?  A string quilt!  Love the turquoise accent border; perfect color to bring a little calm to the top.  I think it also represents the water from the scenic backing which depicts the river near Taos New Mexico.
