    Two very different finished quilts

    I finished 2 quilts this week. The first was the second quilt I finished for my friend. The "before" is what her aunt started and to which she had added. I have to admit...it was rough. The old blocks were all cut and sewn by hand, and nothing was straight. My friend didn't want me to just put in more of the blocks in new fabrics, so I had to get creative. We chose the red border to bring some "life" and brightness to the quilt. Her aunt's name was Dorothy, but they all called her Dot. So the polka dot just worked. It was a challenge and we're all very happy with the end result.

    The second finish is one I made for my shop. I wanted to try something that was modern and different than what I usually make. I used a Botanics charm pack with a Black Bella Solids charm pack. It was a lot of fun to play with all the triangles.

        You performed magic on that first quilt! Love the idea of the polka dots to go with the name!

        They both are beautiful!
