"Churn Dash" and "Christmas Quilt" by Anne Arthur

Two of my quilts.
 
The first is a churn dash I made  in 2007 for our bed. It was hand quilter by a very dear friend. It is very precious to me as my friend has now been registered partially sighted through Glaucoma.
 
 


The second quilt is a Christmas quilt. It was made from a kit. A friend in the US bought two block of the month quilts and gave me this one. I pieced the top in 2003 and only finished quilting it in timer to put it on the bed for Cristmas last year. I can do more quilting on it in the future if I want to.

Anne,

I can't remember seeing a prettier churn dash quilt. I love the fabrics on the white background. The Christmas quilt is beautiful as well. Thanks for sharing.

Anne, both quilts are lovely & sure to be treasured keepsakes.  Churn Dash sounds especially important to you given your friend's vision problems.

Both quilts are beautifull! Love the colours and love the patterns.

I always prefer the traditionel style anyway.

I love the way the churn dashes pop out with the white background.  Both quilts are beautiful.

both quilts are beautiful, I think I like the churn dash best. I think quilts with "history" always seem to have a unnamable somthing about them. I have noticed at shows that people are just drawn to them.  Hope yours becomes an heirloom.

Anne, they are both beautiful.  I really like the Churn Dash cause it is scrappy!
