Heather's Block of the Month Sampler quilt finish...


Yesterday you saw Megan's finish. Today is my Block of the Month finish. Megan and I fought over that lovely stack of Backyard Baby for our Block of the Month. She won in the end because of her two boys, and wanting to make them quilts for their beds. I was bummed out until I saw my stack of lovely fabric. Ooh La La by pillow and Maxfield. How could these bright colors not make anyone happy???

Here is my finished quilt...


Do you love it so??? I do!


You can see a bit of the quilting, our Aunt Wendy quilts a lot of our quilts. This was just a large swirl design. Sweet.


The weather was behaving quilt nicely. Since it was overcast, I was able to get the beautiful Utah mountains and my quilt exposed properly! I loved how the photos turned out.  


This awesome fence was just off the side of the road. Ended up being a perfect rustic setting. You may see more photos here!



Sorry for the quilt interruption .., one of my helpers. I tend to be a little ADD with my hobbies. That goes with photography, and photography of the kids! I know! I am a horrible mother. I LOVE candid sweet children's photographs. I am going to try to do better this year. These babies of mine are growing up too fast!! Isn't she sweet? (At least she still  has yummy cheeks to kiss!)


Hope you liked! I am going to try to talk Megan into another one. We both learned some new techniques, and mostly I learned the value of just working a little at a time really adds up!

I do love it! I love each individual block, the colors, the way you framed them in white and then used darker colors for the sashing - just everything about it. Fabulous job!

Yours turned out so cute. I was surprised when I realized I chose the same line of fabric for my Quilt Story block of the month as you chose. I made it larger with a total of 30 blocks for my mom to use as a bedspread!!
