Off to the Spa!

I'm sending off two quilts to the 'spa' later today.

The spa is my LAQ!

The first is Summer.  I used a layer cake of Noteworthy for these Lemonye star blocks made with HST.  I just love what snowballing the corners have done to the block.

This quilt finished roughly 70 by 88.  I went without a border on this one.  I choose one of the cream prints from the line for the backing.  This was my design although I found inspiration galore over the internet.

The second quilt is called Middle Sister.  

This was made from a layer cake of Tapestry.  The pattern can be found here - this is the second time I've made this pattern.

I chose backing fabric to be the same as the outer border.  Binding will also be in this fabric.  This is a gift for my sister - although I won't be gifting it for a few months!

Happy Stitching!


  1. Two lovely quilts heading to the spa... and I like both of them equally but for different reasons! Hmmm... I think the 2nd one is drawing me in... uh oh!


  2. Two absolutely beautiful quilts finished! Always such a good feeling. Good for you.

  3. Gorgeous LeMoyne star quilt! I think the Noteworthy fabric is the stunner here. Bet you can't wait to get them back from the spa.

  4. Both of these quilts are so pretty... love both of the fabric lines and you've chosen great patterns to show them off! The "spa" makes me smile too.


Leave a stitch...
