More mail goodies...

Here are 2 more quilts I sent Jackie at Canton Village Quilt Works. I pieced and appliqued this quilt about 7 years ago. "French Rose" was a kit at the Glass Thimble in Columbus, Ohio. It can be found in the book by Cabbage Rose called "Threads of Time". My MIL made one as well and wanted to quilt it but didn't know how. I volunteered to teach her...thus I quilted her whole quilt...so mine lay unquilted for years...until now..... Here's a close up of the flowers...

And the border....which will I think end up scalloped. This pattern

And here's one of the Baby Fats quilts...simple and starry... I am just happy that I will have a few baby quilts on hand for future mommies...

Now I have to get started on the bindings!
