Here's the second one. I call this one "In The Garden". It was started 7 years ago as a BOM. It seemed like life just had a way of getting in the way. It is all hand qulted. I am sure glad to finally finish this one!
I will be entering both of these quilts in our county fair tomorrow.

Carol - Very nice quilts. Love the quilting - did you do it?
Here is my Rainbow top - not quilted yet - it is in line - I was going to post it earlier but couldn't get any of the pages to load - so maybe???
this isn't the best picture but the only place where I could put it that you could see almost the whole quilt -
I did work on my Sew Spooky today - got almost all of 1 #2 block done - I have to do the hand embroidery work on it and it will be done - some spider legs and a spider web... I am going to leave the satin stitch for all the blocks till they are all done and then do that work all at the same time. the 2nd #2 block is all cut out and just waiting for me to get back to the sewing machine but my arms ached too much today and my lower back started screaming at me while I was sewing the first one - so think going to bed fairly early for me and sew sew sew tomorrow.
Autumn Splendor and In the Garden are both gorgeous quilts. Good luck on the fair entries.
I love the rainbow quilt. I really like that the design is simplistic but the effect is stunning.
Carol both of your quilts are. Eautiful. I like how you used white or close to white, to make your lattice. It's a choice that works so well here and I'm not sure I would have thought of it. With the brown itreally setsoff each of thé blocks.

Just so no one thinks im not doing anything heres an update on my EPP project, i spent quite a bit of time on it on holiday.
Gini, i havent forgotten my Applique, hopefully i will get back to that this week, although im not too worried as that is part of what i intend to do at the Branson retreat, to keep me out of trouble.
lots of love
