Sally Post Blocks

 Here's my next big push to get finished.

 My Sally Post blocks are prepped and ready to machine applique. Karen and I are starting a new project together and both of us would like to finish these before moving on. (Karen is super amazing and fast so hers are probably done!)
Maybe you'd like to join in on our new project? It's not for the faint of heart...... 
Tiptoe through the Tulips by Wendy Whellum, Legends and Lace blog. You can see the photo at the link, but I think you have to purchase the pattern on ebay.  It is based on the Knappenburger quilt at the Folk Art Museum in NYC.

   These three quilts are at the quilters- early Christmas present, I guess.  Under the Big top I just sent to Mary of Quilt Hollow.

My friend and quilter Kathy, A Thread Runs Through It,  has this one and she let me know it would be ready before Christmas. (I also noticed that the top two have the same border)
I just dropped this one off this weekend at Quiltworks in Bend. This is my first quilt being done by Kim, but I have no fear about her ability. I should get some binding prepped and ready to sew on. I'm looking forward to new quilts to display this holiday season.

Have a happy day!

  17. Beautiful quilts, can't think of better Christmas decorations than displaying your quilts. For me all you need are quilts and a tree.
