Shakespeare in the Park

I am making Judy Martin's pattern "Shakespeare in the Park"
in two different colorways and two different sizes. It comes from her
book " The Creative Pattern Book".
A group of us are doing it with a leader ( Linda) online so we can
actually get it done this time....this is my third attempt at trying
to make this great looking quilt. Its coming along :0).

You should check out the fabric giveaway over at Pumpkin patch primitive quilt shoppe!
It is beautiful......if you enter to win tell em Pokeytown Kim sent you :0).
Drawing is on Halloween........owwwwwwww!


Jordan loved his quilt with space ships and bugs crawling across the top,
Evan loved the flannel backing the best.......
Micah loved that hers was long enough, because at 13...she is 5' 10"!
I had so much fun delivering these quilts in person and seeing how much they
will be used and loved :0)

This picture was taken in 1993 down in NYC the day Denise was sworn
into the NY Bar, ( she also has been admitted to Texas and Fla. Bars).
We laughed at how cute and proper we both looked in this picture and were
amazed at all the changes in our lives in the last 16 years......... like the birth of
these 3 great kids!

Evan and Jordan's birthday quilts

Evan is nine years old today but he will get his quilt on Sunday. I think these crumb quilts are just terrific for kids.
Jordan will be eleven next month but will get his quilt early since we will be visiting this Sunday.
Both of these quilts have scraps I used in their baby quilts...........not so long ago :0).

A new quilt is started

I just joined a new Yahoo group that is a spin off from Stashbusters called
SITP....."Shakespeare in the Park" takes this complex pattern
and breaks it down into doable sections.
Linda is leading us and this is where we are so far :0).

Now to catch up on those Bunny Hill blocks because the Oct.
block is out and I still August and Sept. to finish........ Happy Sewing :0)

"Little quilts"

These two quilts were made from the same book years apart....this one hangs in my granddaughters room, it measures about 32" x 37". The patterns are by Alice Berg, Mary Ellen Von Holt, and Sylvia Johnson. I've made maybe 20 of their little quilts :0).

This little quilt use to hang in my daughters room when she was a little girl. It measures 18''x25'', I made it from the book" Celebrate with Little Quilts". I just loved these little baskets. Sadly I have no idea when I made this because there is no label....but nearly 20 years ago :0).
