Two New Finishes

Hellooooo. I know it's been a long time since I posted, but nevertheless, here I am to show you the two wall hangings I recently got back from the quilter.

I don't often do wall hanging size quilts but I wanted a couple quick projects that I could make  using fabric I had in my stash. I also wanted to try this cool looking border. OK...I cheated a little. I did buy the modern looking toile for the background. Since I have taupe walls now in my new home, I brought in some tan colors to co-ordinate.

I decided to use this wall hanging as a tablecloth. As my quilter pointed out  "Ummm, did you notice one of your blocks is facing a different direction?" Well, no, I hadn't noticed. :-}
I don't know if you can see in the picture, but my quilter did cross-hatching on the blocks. I really liked the effect. I am working on two more quilts that I hope to show soon. I know, I always say that and then it's months later when I finally do. I'll try to do better. Thank you for visiting.  Love, Derrith
