A Surprise and Some Old Quilts

This afternoon when I got home from work there was a big envelope for me from Quiltin Jeanie and these FQ's were inside. Aren't they awesome! Thank you so much Jeanie, I love them! My daughter is coming home this weekend and I decided to clean and move things around in the guest room. I had to unload the quilt chest to move it and thought I would show you some of my quilts from the late 1990's. This first quilt is a Debbie Mumm pattern. She used to be my favorite designer and I loved her fabrics, the colors so pretty and girly. The quilt below is one of my favorites.
This next quilt is a hexagon quilt made with alot of scrap fabrics. As you can tell I was into the pastel in the late 1990's.
In this picture you can see the writing on the background fabric. Love it!


The last quilt for now is a small basket quilt which called for yo-yos for the flowers. It took me a while to get them to look right but it was worth it. I think I will leave these little darlings out to enjoy for the next few weeks. They remind me of spring which is right around the corner! :D

Your welcome! I'm glad you like them. I am enjoying my beautiful quilted flowery wallhanging that you gave away, **still can't believe you could part with it**...I hung it on the door to my quilting room, so I see it many times a day...

Isn't it fun sometimes to haul out the old quilts and see what colors and designs we liked them compared to now, or which ones we love now that maybe weren't our favorites back then!

I enjoy reading your blog. It's one of my favorites. Always something interesting going on. Looks like you have some adventures ahead. I keep going back to those wonky houses. I'll have to make some for myself sometime.
