A Wooden Quilt Box and Three Quilts

Darlene at SewCalGal had a virtual Christmas Quilt show.  I was the lucky winner which won a prize.  It is this beautiful handmade wooden Quilting Jewelry Box. I love the Bear Paw box and it is made of Walnut burl with Japanese Ash and red Maple burl. Dave is so talented.  Thanks Dave!
 I would like to show three quilts I quilted for my friend, Gail. The first quilt is a blue and red Block of the Month quilt.
 We decided on a stipple or meandering for the quilting.  The blocks are very small and the quilting lines are the size of a dime apart.
The sampler blocks are so pretty. Here's a close up of two of the blocks.

A matching fabric for the border.
This is my personal favorite of the three quilts. The fabric line is called Summer Garden. The panto Hyacinth looks really great with the quilt.
I'm dying to buy these fat quarters.
Matching pink fabric for the back.
This last quilt is a black and gold batik quilt. I used one of my favorite pantos called Curly-Q again.


Brown Batik backing.

Happy Quilting until next time!

Oh, wow, Millie, those are all so beautiful. I really like the fabrics in the sampler quilt. And how wonderful that you WON that gorgeous jewelry box!!! I know you'll enjoy using it, especially with the quilting motif on top. And, as always, your quilting is so, so much an enhancement to quilts that are already pretty.
