I received 2 boxes from Adele in Utah.  One box was full of quilt tops and the other contained yardage for backings.  All of the tops were beautifully pieced.   This first one had a lot of hand applique.

The curved handles on the flowerpots were hand appliqued as well as the items in the flowerpots and the flowers along the bottom. I used a dark green fabric that was provided for the backing. 

I quilted it with a simple stipple using a dark green in the bobbin and off-white for the top.  

This next one reminds me

of the 4th of July.  The fabrics had stars, flags, old-time bathing suits, and croquet mallets. It made me think of being at the beach. 

The backing was provided by Adele. 

I quilted wavy lines to represent the waves of the ocean.

That’s Olive posing on the quilts.  She is my quilt inspector.

This last one was so pretty.  The picture doesn’t do it justice. 

The colors in person were amazing.  Once again, the piecing was meticulous.

The backing was provided by Adele. 

I used grey thread in the bobbin and snow colored on the top.  I did my favorite stipple for the quilting.

WOW. I loved all of these!! The colors were great and the work”woman”ship was great too!! Many thanks to the two of you for pairing up and doing great things.
