Collaboration

My aunt that introduced me to Gwen Marston showed me this Gwenny style top she put together. Very cool!!





















Her choice of colors is always great. She does quilts for all the babies in the family and for friend's babies. We are having a baby explosion in our family this spring and summer. We have decided to do some collaborative quilts.

These are some squares she did. Aren't they great?















































I love the way she did this four patch as a square in a square. Also, notice the saw tooth she did, very subtle but effective.















After a very busy Fourth of July will all my family at the beach I have had some time to retreat to my sewing room and work. I have been doing the 15 minute thing and that is really fun. I love putting scraps together in random shapes.


















I could not resist doing a few stars.
















I hope everyone is having a great summer. We are burning up!! It is hot, humid and dry. The kind of day you do not even want to stick your head out!!
