Welcome Spring quilt (design by Cherri House for Moda Bake Shop)

This pattern was a freebie from Moda Bake Shop (LOADS of free patterns there), designed by the talented Cherri House.  I used Moda's Hunky Dory fabrics by Chez Moi for the front, and the back is wide sheeting fabric I purchased from jackrabbit fabrics on Etsy.  This pattern was really fast, and I love the end result.  The snail applique is my own design, with a scrap of Anna Maria Horner Good Folks fabric.

Quilts at Rest Rock

I spent the weekend over at my extended family's camp at Lake George, New York.  Lots of kids, good food and drink, water, and sunshine.  Since I started quilting last November, I've completed a total of six quilts, with several more in the works.  Five out of six quilts were together this weekend, along with their very cute owners.  I love that all of these are being used and loved...taken on car trips and to camp, cuddled up in for movie nights and brought outside for picnics.

Isabelle on her quilt, and a look at the back. She was sad to leave the lake. I know just how she feels.

This is the first quilt I did with a pieced binding. I really like the look, but don't think you can see it well here.

Morgan's nickname is Snail
