  1. Two color quilts are some of my favorites! The are all wonderful, but that quilt by Shana is terrific.

    Thanks for sharing all these amazing quilts and the patterns by these generous quilters :)

  2. Ahhh, there's nothing like a red and white quilt. I've always wanted a schoolhouse quilt. And the denim quilts you've shown recently are splendid. I've got 3 piles of old jeans that I'll get to one of these days.
    Thanks for featuring such good work.
    best, nadia
