Retirement Gift and Donation Quilts

I've been a bit lazy about taking pictures, so I went out between rain showers this morning to do it. They aren't as lumpy as they look--the fence I hung them on is overgrown with vines!

The first is a D9P(Disappearing Nine-Patch)--a retirement gift for a friend. Her favorite color is brown. I pieced the back with extra blocks--I always have extras!

D9P--66" x 66"

These two pinwheel quilts will be for donation. Though yellow and orange aren't my favorite colors--they are favorites for others.

Yellow Sashed Pinwheel--60" x 60"

Orange On-Point Pinwheel--58" x 58"

Now to get them washed. My washer and dryer should be delivered this afternoon--YAY!

    1. Thanks, Maggie! I know many people do--that's why I try to make lots of colors (whether I like them or not.) :)


I love your comments! I have, however, had to add moderation of comments because of spammers. Thanks for your patience.
Happy Quilting,
