Kristi's Very Pink Quilt

May was my month for "The Hive" Quilting Bee. I wanted pink string blocks with a brown stripe down the center. I received many great blocks from the bee and here is the quilt in progress...

I raw edged appliqued the words "sweet" and "sassy" because this quilt is for my co-worker's daughter Kristi who is both sweet and sassy. Kristi graduated from high school in June and is off to college next month. I have quilted it with light pink thread but I have yet to get it bound. Maybe this weekend....

June Finishes

Here are my three June finishes.
I finished the Savanah quilt for my baby (she's 3 1/2 years old) cousin Savanah who lives in Scottsdale AZ. Savanah and I represent the youngest, at 3 1/2 and oldest, at 32 1/2 of the cousins on my Mom's side of the family. Savanah and her Daddy, my Uncle Jim, came to visit us in California this last week. On Sunday we celebrated my Uncle's 50th birthday. Lots of family, friends and good food out at the ranch. Next we have the Hunky Dory Baby Quilt. This was an easy finish for my Grandma's neighbor who recently had a baby girl. I used natural colored linen as the sashing.

The third quilt I got done in the begining of June but kept forgetting to take pictures of it.... This is the OZ quilt. I still need to get it to its owners in Chico, CA. Our good friends Bob and Emily were married in April of this year and we did not make it to their wedding ;( but I did manage to get this beauty finished in the same year!
