Missing Pictures

These are the pictures I tried to put up last night. Nothing real exciting--but they are DONE! The first one is "Butter Blues", pieced in 2000. My daughter started to do this, thinking she wanted something blue and yellow, then something happened, she changed her mind and so it sat waiting patiently to be done. I pulled it out to finish so I'd have something else to practice on my HQ16.















This is called "Flip Flop Summer". The yellow check border is actually chenille. I was hoping to find a lime green, but couldn't. I saw a picture of one in a magazine last summer and thought it was cute. I had this in the HQ16 at my retreat, and so some of my friends practiced on it too.















This is my 3" finished Rail Fence. Why? Just because! Actually, I get bored with doing the same 12" blocks over for demonstrating, and thought I'd challenge myself. I made a quilt with 6" blocks last time, so why not go even smaller? I think this will be it though!

Love the butter blues - I am a sucker for those secondary designs. (And the blue & yellow combo.)

Hey, Karen--good job on those finishes! Like Amy, I like the secondary design that formed in the sashing. It makes the simple Churn Dash blocks all the more interesting. Maybe your daughter will change her mind about it since it's done?

I love your teeny weeny rail fence! The flip flop fabric is just gorgeous! Blue and yellow never fails :-)
