Rebecca's Rainbow Quilt

Rebecca wanted LOTS of feathers - so that's what she got!
This was such a cheerful quilt to work on! See if you can figure out how a block is made.

Sharon's Laural Burch Quilts

Sharon should win some sort of award for already having Christmas quilts made for her 3 daughters.
Sharon requested non-pictorial quilting designs in the borders.
The contrast between the black and bright colors looks like stained glass.

July Honey

One of my hobbies is beekeeping. Here are the first finished frames of the season. The orange stuff that you see around the edges is propolis. Bee Glue. It's what honey bees use to cement everything into place. You can see that most cells have a light covering of wax. This means that the nectar has reached the perfect ripeness. I will collect sealed frames until September when they are done producing extra honey for the year.
