TRYING AGAIN!!

 IF this does not work there may be TEARS... you have been warned!

I want to thank Michelle and all the ladies who worked on my tops ... yes TOPS.. I was in 2 groups x... for ALL the work that has gone into this swap. There are A LOT of wonderful works of art out there because of our efforts xx

HOPEFULLY the link will appear below to enable every-one who want to to see the finished results xx

Quilts From My Crayon Box: It's almost here!

The first top to come home has been across America, and into Canada.. IT IS bold and bright and SASSY ... and I LOVE it xx..


I added some ...OK hundreds of beads..


and "me" touches...


it is hanging on my stairs and it makes me smile every time I go past it xx

My second top has also been across America, before returning to the UK be to worked on by a lovely French lady who lives here xx...


it is much more subtle and gentle..


and makes me smile , I have started the quilting .. but not got very far!!..


you will just have to come back and check it out later xx

This is like having children ... you love each of them ... in their own special way.. and cannot choose between them as to a favourite xx

Having this much fun ....IS legal... isnt it?

HOPING this works

SMILING   xx

Always envious of your hand quilting. Great quilting detail on the second quilt.

That Modern Mini Mystery is a fabulous concept and those that came home to you are very different works of art. (PS I came I from Caribou Crossing blog)

wow! people went overboard on yours!! great job...

Michele said...

Ok first off I'm going to tell you that you aren't allowed to keep the 1st one. You must send it to me. Now! Just kidding. I do love it though. The 2nd one is fabulous too, calmer just like you mention. I'm glad you enjoyed the round robin and I fully expect you'll join in the future ones. Thanks for playing.

Hey I love them both It was such fun to put the final border on the first one. By the time I got it it was already beautiful It took me quite awhile to come up with something different that also added texture. I wish I could see it in person after you added your special touches.

That one was YOURS?!?? I saw it on the Crayon Box blog and thought it was so gorgeous....I`m super impressed, in fact. I'm all about the colour and that first quilt delivers! I hope you write up a pattern or a tutorial, or at least a little direction? I'd love to see some close up shots of the different rounds; I see a lot of dimensional work there. Details, please!

I love them both! I was so happy how bold the first one turned out! Yeah!

If you are sure it is legal- and I think you are right, then it is either immoral or fattening!
You choose!

They are super! lovely results!
