    When I say large quilts, I am talking large enough for a queen or a draped double.

      This one I thought was made with circles then sewn together.. Pancakes? But when you got up close, it was raw edge orange pieces sewn over 9 patches with borders. Nothing fancy, but it looks complicated.. love the quilting done on each "orange peel." I put this one on my to-do list

      Some more memorable quilts that caught my eye.. and I thought I'd share them with you.. Keep quilting and making your master pieces... It inspires everyone who sees them and don't be afraid to show them off. Several had mismatched joined seams and point cut off. But they showed very well!!

        Thank you for posting these Judy! I especially love the first one with the applique - I can see why it took ten years.
