I know that Mary L. is getting ready for her guild's quilt show in a couple of weeks so I'm tickled that she took the time to send me some photos. (I also apologizie that it's taken me so darned long to get them posted!!)

Mary is my Pattern Tester Extraordinaire and I'd be lost without her! Since I showed a photo of my Fractured Star top Mary sent me a photo of her FINISHED quilt and I thought you'd like to see it. Mary added a tiny little red flange and then an outer border because she wanted her quilt to be larger. Looks great don't you think?

Mary also sent photos of the quilt that I designed as a BOM. She did hers using her own fabrics because I didn't have the fabric kits ready yet. The photo below on the right is her quilt on her bed. (Imagine! It actually made it onto a bed!) The quilt has eleven different blocks and each month people received instructions and the fabric to do four blocks and the built-in sashing. The photo on the left is the back of Mary's quilt. (See? You actually can use up those big pieces!)

Here are both of our quilts. (I FINALLY got mine finished!) Mary's is on the left, mine on the right. I think I need to take a new photo without the shadows (and without the SNOW!)


  1. You are lucky to have a friend like the quitls.

  2. Somehow I missed seeing this post last week. Thanks for the kind's a mutual thing.
