1st up....Robyn made this quilt as a gift for a family member who has a grey and black lounge with a touch of red and thought she might like this for the back of the sofa....simple but effective design.

Using my favo threads...polyneon by Maderia I stippled the background and did swirls on the red 'pinwheels'.

Jacki's Nine Patch ,this is a Thimbleberry design but the nine patches were made by 12 different people as part of our Round Robin group we did a nine patch swap as well as our Round Robin project.I got such a kick out of quilting this as each nine patch made me think: "oh Kerry made this one, & oh, Janis made this one!"

here  and here you will see more.

Jacki wanted simple straight line stitching and crosshatching.

This is a BOM exclusive to The Country Yard using Stof fabrics.

Can you guess what threads I used??????

If you guessed Maderia Poly neons, you are wrong!

I used Signature variegated threads about 7 different ones and Mettler Metrosene.

AND.....last , but certainly not least, a big thank you to my customers, new and returning.I really do appreciate the chance to finish your quilt top ready for you to continue enjoying for many years.
