New Blogger Blog Hop

Contemplate thy powers, contemplate thy wants and thy connections; so shalt thou discover the duties of life, and be directed in all thy ways.
Akhenaton

I've added a new button on my sidebar.  I found a new blog that is offering advice and fun for new blogs. My turn will be in October. You should check out  http://plumandjune.blogspot.com/
She has some colorful quilts that she has made.  If you are interested in the Blog Hop check out the info here http://plumandjune.blogspot.com/p/blog-hop.html .
She's already helped me with the No Reply Blogger question. I didn't know I had a problem there. That's what I get for not commenting more ;-(  ...
Now to share a quilt - because a post without pictures is BORING!!!

Fairy Pinwheel Quilt

This is the quilt I finished two years ago for my grand daughter.  I had made it as a shop sample but needed to make it larger to fit her bed and tall mattress.So it got the rectangles on the edge. I just barely managed to scrounge up enough scraps to do it.  Good thing I never toss out my scraps - Hee-Hee!

Cute Little Fairies

The pattern was in a Thimbleberries book I think but I don't remember the name of it. I just love the fairy print. The pantograph I used shows up a little here.  The prints are too busy to see it well.

Corner Design

The ends of the borders got an orange rectangle because I ran out of background fabric. I had been smart enough to save the binding fabric with the top.  I will have to show you how I do that soon.

Label

I even managed to find a leftover dragonfly block to use for the label. I was going to back it with the dragonfly fabric but ended up with the swirls instead.  I made pillowcases to match but I don't think I have a picture of them. I have to try for that when I'm at their house sometimes.
