This is my first post of my handiwork!  This first quilt I finished awhile back but I think out of everything I've made it's craftster worthy  Wink  I get so inspired by everything I see here everyone is talented and crafty in their own way.

I love how colorful it is and the pattern is very cheerful, it's also my favorite and all mine!  This is the first quilt I made just for me.


This cowboy themed quilt I just finished for a cousin who's having a baby.  I didn't use a pattern just kinda came up with something and I hope she likes it.

Both your quilts are very lovely.  I like the flower print in the first one a lot, it makes it very cheerful.  The second one is also very interesting. I stared at it for quite a while trying to figure out how you did it.  Did you add the thin strips to the bigger diamonds and then attach them to each other or is it appliqued on top of the quilt?  I like the weaved look either way.

I just sewed alternating diamonds and short strips which made diagonal rows, then cut long strips to separate each row.... does that make sense?

Love both quilts! I'm going to make London Roads for my dad and am following a pattern from 101 Fabulous Rotary-Cut Quilts-it's only 47 x 59 and I need to make it queen size. Is yours queen size? Any suggestions for increasing the size for my quilt?
Thanks!!!

Those are both wonderful! I love the bright blue main fabric in the first one, it's so pretty and cheerful.  And the cowboy one is an excellent pattern!
