Blueberry Festival

The Roper Mountain Science Center had a Blueberry Festival and requested quilts to display. I loaned one of my favorite lap quilts I made in 2008. All of the center is made from one fabric cut up in triangles. The border shows what the fabric originally looked like. It won 2nd place!

"Fire" quilt

I started this quilt while I was visiting my daughter and her family in March. Thankfully the piecing doesn't require accuracy since I was having to use my 1985 Kenmore that I had passed down to her. I used a varigated thread in a flame design pattern. I think it would look great in several other color combinations. Viking Sew n' Quilt has a 40 strip set for most of the fabric. Just add 10 to 20 one eighth yard pieces to complete the quilt top.
