More quilts finished and Blessed

It's been such a blessing to see how many of these quilts can come to life and be finished!!
This one was created because of the beautiful fall fabric. Not wanting to cut up this fabric into small pieces, we used a large 8" square block, framed with fabrics that would match the leaf fabric. We put them together with a broder of the fall fabric, so it gives the illusion of the frames rising above the leaves. Makes me think of leaves floating under a bridge, which may end up being the name of this quilt. Green plaid is on the backing, with various strips of the frame fabrics as the binding. Two possible names...1. Leaves Under the Bridge, 2. Floating Leaves. 

 This  one is a quilt that Mary Ellen did using blocks that she'd made from a 'Block of the Month' project and it looks a little bit Asian, and is machine-quilted by Laura McCarrick with angel wings, hence the name, "Asian Angel Wings". Nice black and white florentine backing was used.

This quilt was a Black and White Challenge, done with Vernon Nutmeg quilters, when Nancy was a member. She had these blocks from the challenge and had never put them together. Considering them to be 'orphan blocks' from this project, she put them together with sashing to enlarge the quilt, then added a brilliant blue thin border, with a larger black print border. The backing is pieced and the binding is solid black. It's called "Challenge Me".
I love seeing them laying over the railings at church when they get blessed. It's such a special moment.
 These two are laying near the babbling pond in front of the pulpit. Love these.
Stay tuned for more....
