Sandy's Three

I thought I would share today the three that Sandy could not get to me before we took that last batch to the USO. These three will be going on our next trip there! 
First is this string quilt. Isn't it gorgeous!

The backing is really fun and I like that purple binding, too!

Next up is this sixteen patch stars quilt. I made the sixteen patches and Sandy put it all together and quilted it (and the other three as well!). 

She used that same fun fabric for the backing on this one, but changed up the binding, using the same stripe as the outer border. Very effective, don't you think?

This one is a red/white/blue nine patches and neutral rail fences. I love it!

And look at this backing! Just perfect, along with that dark blue stripe for the binding.
Thank you, Sandy, for all your hard work. We make a pretty good team, don't we?

I have now started sewing these half squre triangles together, I like them. Can't wait to see how this one grows. 

I sort of lost my quilting mojo for a while there, but I'm happy to report that it is back - and that makes me happy! I hope you have lots of happy-makers happening there in your little corner of the world, too!

Hugs and kisses,

The 3 quilts all look so wonderful. Lovely combined efforts. The RWB with 9 patch and post and rail looks very effective. The simple designs can be so stunning.
Lovely progress on the HSTs too.
I think we all need a break from our sewing now and then -- as long as it is not for too long!

So gorgeous. You must have just thought you lost the quilting mojo. I sure can't tell it. You are such an inspiration and I'm waiting patiently to get started back again. Thanks so much for all you do to brighten so many people's lives. Love you my sweet friend.

Wow. I think you two make a GREAT team -- you make such pretty quilts and for such a worthy cause. Can't wait to see your little chevron quilt develop!
