Forest Star Baby Quilt  44" x 44"

This quilt is still in the cut and paste design stage.  The fabrics are Forest Frolics by Heidi Boyd for Red Rooster Fabrics. We will probably replace the bear block with one of deer, since the brown of the bears seems to overbalance the left corner.  There are six blocks on the panel along with the birds on boughs swags on the top and bottom border.  The Send-it-Home Quilt and Yarn Shop has the panel and the coordinating fabrics except the green and lavender.

This will be the side border center panels, and most of the back of the quilt.

Bremen Critters and Summer landscapes

This quilt uses a great group of fabrics designed by Leanne Anderson for Henry Glass and Co. Just finished and available as a kit from Send-It-Home Quilt and Yarn Shop in West Yellowstone, Montana.

Official name?  Build Each Other Up.   Our private name?  Bremen Critters, in honor of "The Musicians of BremenTown."

We've done a lot for the shop this summer with what some call "Cheater cloth" and others "Convenience Cloth."  Sometimes the fabrics are too adorable, or just plain beautiful, to pass by.

The "pieced" blocks in the 3rd border of Build Each Other Up would be fun to actually piece, especially for those of us who adore 4" blocks.  There is enough piecing with the 5 borders of this quilt to allay the guilt for those who suspect they should applique the whole thing.

This photo is from my phone, on a Sunday afternoon jaunt to find out where the road goes.  Zen navigation, anyone?  Taken near Lander Wyoming.

Current quilt projects are the Huckleberry Patch quilt in purple and blue batiks, and the dragon applique for my Winter Dreams quilt.  Pictures soon!
