Quilting I Love and Blog Book Tour Give Away Reminder

 Simply put this is a quilt that I absolutely love!  It's not mine to keep.  Peggy (no blog) will be receiving her quilt top back from me this week.
 Some close up photos though this one did turn.

 Next up is my Schnibble Leap Year that I made for last month's Schnibble parade however it wasn't quilted.  This Saturday I had a "ME" day and quilted my own with a sunflowers design.  Love it!  Love the texture!!
 Here is a close up of both front and back.  The design is called sunflowers but kind of looks like daisies.
I quilted several quilts these past weeks.  I will show more next time I post.  (there is a really cute crab quilting design I want to show you)  For now I want to remind you of the Blog Book Tour Week Two of Cheryl Wall's latest book called, "At Home With Country Quilts."  I wrote about it in my previous post and I asked that you enter your name HERE!  Do not enter on this post or it will not count in the draw.

I just love your quilting and love seeing the closeups. I have some tops that I want to quilt and seeing designs and the ways you quilt them, helps me to decide on ideas for mine. I really love the design you used on the outer blocks and the middle stars, that would be nice to do on my blocks. I have to go through my books and designs to see what types I have and what works. I usually look at the drawing and then draw that right onto the quilt, but it would be nice to have stencils.
