Two New Quilts for Phyllis
I picked up 2 quilts from Phyllis at the Quilt Club meeting last week Monday. I LOVE the first one Both are scrappy but it's the border that sets this on off...
The center is just stippled with a leaf pattern. Simple BUT nothing shows cause it is so busy. BUT it's the border. I LOVE the echoing!
This week I started on the 2nd one. It's a lovely and simple 9 patch scrappy one. With a taupe rectangles that just sets the 9 patch blocks off!
I did a simple Terry Twist in the 9 patches. Was taking me forEVER to do one block at a time. After 2 rows I figured out a way I can do 5 little blocks by alternating with the row below and above the center lonely 9 patch.
Here is the border on the left. It's VERY wide and I had no clue what to do. My friend, Angela showed me this one. I thought I could do it and it worked out well. I'm afraid the taupe thread I used does not show up at all. It blends right in with the fabric. On the right is what I did in the rectangles. Phyllis requested some sort of branch and leaf - like in the border ... I think I captured that...
I hope Phyllis likes them both.
