A lovely quilt with a historic feel to it! To me, this is calling out for Baptist Fan Almost to fit the era of the fabrics. Backing is a dark sage green with tiny navy vines and flowers with tan centers.
Feb 26: Quilted in a day start to finish
This small quilt pieced by Donna Roberson uses the Dogwood Trail fabrics. That's has some tricky points to piece, Donna!!

An absolutely adorable Halloween quilt!!! Donna is making this for her granddaughter.
"Lindsey is 18 soon to be 19. She loves the spooky things. Has worked for several years at one of the big haunted houses in this area. One year she was a zombie and you could hardly recognize her." Lindsey has chosen a batty pattern for her quilt. The detail in the wings makes this a rather dense pattern with 2 1/2 hours of stitching time alone for a 52 x 66 size quilt. By comparison, quilts twice this size with a less dense design take less than 2 hours. That said, this is the perfect pattern for this quilt!!
I just got in two beautiful quilts from Donna
. One is a chain quilt that needs simple block quilting to complete it. The design will be Spider Flower blocks with medium brown thread on top and sage on the back. Donna explains: "The quilt with the circles was the very first one I completed in class with Joanne. I had to quilt it on my home machine. Oh my that was so hard, my machine throat was so small for all that quilt."
Jan 28: Programmed into IQ. I can actually quilt this sideways & thus do less rows!
Jan 30: Done!Feb 01: Ironing out the creases in the fabric before loading a quilt has multiple advantages as I discovered today.
I spotted a small 1/4 in square tear in the backing I would not have seen otherwise. Have Donna's okay to add a small seam across the width of the backing to remove the tear.Feb 02: Finished!
The other one features fall fabrics. The design will be Acorns & Oak Leaves.
Beautiful work, Donna! I love the bright colors in this happy quilt. Longarm pattern is Deb's Swirls with light pink thread on top and light yellow on the back.
