Two Unquilted Tops and One Ready To Go!

 These barns are what I call "quilt barns" because they have a 6-inch quilt block on the side or the front as is the case on the silo barn blocks.  They were so much fun to make and the patterns were easy to do------no funny angles.  They came from Lori Holt's blog "A Bee in Her Bonnet."  It is a very nice website.
This one, "Tessellating Stars" is all ready to go to Project Linus.  These are fun blocks to make, too and go very quickly.
Last, but not least is Eleanor Burns' "Victory Star." This is one of my favorite stars and Eleanor Burns' directions are spot on.  I really like to do flying geese her way.
Today I plan to put the borders  on the Christmas quilt "JOY Sampler."  It is 81" x 94".  One of the bigger ones I have made.  I usually tend toward the kids size!  So it has been a challenge, to say the least!  But I'm happy with the way it turned out so that's what counts.  Going to have to find a Christmas quilting motif for Maynard to quilt it with.
We are back with the hot (triple digits) weather again, after enjoying a few days of lower 90's and some much needed rain.
Let quilting help you make someone smile!
