Vintage Quilts in May & June

Post of a few of the quilts completed in May and June. This top was brought in by Cindy, top was made by a late friend, also a longarm quilter she made with a Linda Ballard pattern. Iced with a quilting design of pinwheels, Cindy's favorite block to make this quilt her own.  

More pix... the following quilts are tops made in the 1930's. This top was brought in by Bonnie and is a fund raiser for a local organization. Made with 1930's fabrics, no repros here...
Bonnie requested a daisey quilting design that looked like many of the 30's prints. The blocks are very different with set in Y seams and were machine pieced. Well done and great fabrics!

Another top brought in to Honey Run Quilter's by Tava. Made by a family member, Tava's grand mother, also in and with 1930's fabrics. This is the familiar hexie pattern, Grandmother's Flower Garden. Quilted with feathers in a swirl design and a diamond on the alternating blocks...
Love these colors... and they match Tava's room. It was meant to be

and one more also made by a member in Tava's family with a multitude of fabrics and colors from decades ago... this top is now quilted for Tava's grand daughter Leslie.
Leslie picked the backing fabric, a traditional color for the 1930's, great choice.
Quilted with Summer Buzz, a fun pattern with bugs and flowers. Great fabrics here too... as scrappy happy as it gets!

More finished tops to be posted, for Beckie and Donna and Betty and more, another day. Very happy to almost be caught up. June started out with almost a dozen quilts promised for May in addition to the quilts already promised in June. Tomorrow is the last day of June, with only two quilts promised for June left to be finished, it's good to make progress. Thank you again to my wonderful customers for your patience. 

Just a reminder, turn around for new tops is currently October, altho that is subject to change. Call for current info. Thank you, Jo 

Have a great week. 
Stay cool, we are in for triple digits here in the North Valley
