Two New Keepers!

Two quilts are done that I intend to keep---for awhile anyway! The first one is called Homestead and is a panel that I got at the Columbus, Ohio Quilt Show way back in June of 2009. I like it because it is different than what I usually do---a bit on the darker side. Sorry that the picture is on the darker side, too!

The second one is called Music and I had planned to hang it over the piano, but it is too big! But I may put it in the vicinity of the piano somehow! I had quite a time with the 45 degree angle pieces and cut them wrong, but luckily there was a straight edge on them and I had cut them too long, not too short, so I was okay.

We are having some of the coldest weather in a decade today and yesterday, hard to stay warm, even with layers of clothing! As Texans, we are not used to this kind of cold! With the wind blowing, it takes the wind chill way down. Good quilting weather!!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Love the Homestead quilt Jan! I had seen the panel for that one but never bought it. Oh well...I have lots of other quilts to make! :0)

Those are beautiful, Jan! I can see why you're keeping them. I'd find a place to hang it near the piano, or move the piano, lol!
Stay warm hon.....bring out the hand-quilting. I love to hand-quilt in the winter.

I would keep them too, they are beautiful. Very cold here too, lows in the teens and highs in the upper 20's. BRRRR!
