I've been "on a tear" making Priority Quilts lately. Having the studio set up so that I can just go and start creating is very freeing! I can have my machines set up to perform a function and just move from one to the next as I need them. Anyway, the first one here is made from a purchased panel that was colored by my sister in law, Mary, and then cut apart and put back together with this cute print. This one is #7564.
The other two are from a dresser scarf that I purchased at an estate sale last summer, both nearly identical, but I've been perfecting my piping technique and really like the way it brings something extra to the quilts.
