Linda P.'s quilts

Linda P. hosted Sew Day this week, so I thought I'd feature some of her quilts. 

Her home is warm and inviting, and so are her quilts. I just love the colorful one with its wavy, organic strips of solids hanging above the fireplace in her living room.

Here is Linda with one of her two new kitties in front of her kitty cat quilt in the family room.

Her wool applique butterfly quilt is from a 2017 block of the month project, "Butterflies In My Garden,"  by Gail Grassell of River's Edge Antiques and Quilt Loft. The blocks were offered on the Wool Applique Facebook group.

Linda designed this pumpkin quilt, with falling leaves and warm, fall colors. The piece below also features leaves, but this time with shadows. It was from a class by Colleen Wise.

The next quilt says Christmas to me, and features warm, cozy Thimbleberry colors.

Getting wilder, this folded log cabin uses vibrant jewel tones set off by black.

She made this elegant fabric bowl in a class with Hilde Morin ... warmth and elegance.

Linda also collects Featherweights, and she repainted this one in a luscious burgundy/plum color.

Thanks, Linda, for allowing me to feature you! 

 Have a colorful day
