Twice a year, my mom, sisters and I get together for several days of non-stop stitching!
One of our projects this time was to add to our arsenal of "Cousin Quilts" (quilts we give to the children of our cousins when they get married).
This a the same Kathy who made the wedding gift a few postings ago. She made this one for her daughter for Christmas. It was an Eye Spy pattern but Kathy saw it's potential to show off this great patterned fabric.
Molly is my daughter-in-law, and a beginning quilter. She is a fast learner - which is good because many of her friends are having babies.

I got the lighting wrong to show how colorful this quilt is. Barbara made it for her 4 year old nephew.
Connie made this beauty as a sample for a class she is going to teach at Pieceful Hearts in Lisle this autumn. It is a very interesting technique featured in 2 books written by Penny Haren.
My sister, Kathy, made this as a gift for her son, Adam who will be marrying Machelle in January. She saw it in a magazine and figured out how to make it.

This quilt was fun to do!
A photo does not do this quilt justice! The sharp contrast and impeccable piecing is stunning! If you would like to make your own version of this pattern, Connie will be teaching a class at Pieceful Hearts in Lisle.
