Winding Ways

One down....142 to go!

Fabrics from Canton Village Quilt Works

Just keep cutting :0)
This is the start of a wedding quilt. I think only batiks can give this nice flow of colors.  I hope to have this done by Sept. in time for the wedding on 9-10-11.

The first one is in a purple colorway and the second in pink.  I also wanted to show you some of the scrappy fabric that went into these quilts.  This is the last mystery quilt  Bonnie Hunter did on her blog.....I'm already thinking about her the next one :0)

Update:  Bonnie let me know this evening that the pattern will be pulled from her blog June 1st.   After that you'll have to wait to get the pattern in  her  future book.
Well now that is something fun to look forward to :0) A new Bonnie Hunter book!

Happy Spring

 Happy Spring!  This is my favorite time of year when the beautiful dogwood trees bloom and all the gorgeous ornamental trees in the Hudson Valley come back to life.  This pink dogwood is on the grounds of my library....perfectly beautiful.
