Twins?!

Hello Everyone,

I have been a little delinquent on blogging lately, as I was away in sunny Arizona visiting Mom and Dad.  Although, I have been keeping up on your posts! 

Anyway, before I left I finished the second in my series of two quilts. Some of you might remember this quilt pictured below from this post.


Well, I finished the second quilt and gave it to her sister! She was delighted. The quilts are sort of like twins, fraternal ones. They look alike, but are not. Different colors and quilting. They are unique. Here is a close up of the quilting on the second.  I used a pattern called A-mazing.


Here are two views of it on her bed. It looks like another PB Teen catalog photo shoot.


I really love the results and I think the girls are pleased. My friend (their mom) was also pleased.


Since I have been home it has been a little difficult to get back into the groove. Vacation really can tire you out. It is fun not doing the normal daily things, then you have to come home and get back into the normal routine, difficult.

I have been working on some other quilty things. They will be in my next post. I have also updated my gallery here. Check it out some great inspiration. For those of you who are involved in the Black and White Quilt Challenge, don't forget I created this Flickr group. So you can post your pictures there too!

Oh, one last thing, if you haven't checked this out, please do. I was a guest blogger on the Quilting Gallery, you can read the whole post here.  Who knows you might find out something about me that you didn't know already!

Until next time,

I know what you mean about vacations. I bet the warm air was nice though.
