Flowers for Spring

May 16, 2010

We’ve installed two more barn quilts, only this first one is on a house, a 4 foot Tulip Basket.

Yesterday we put this Amaryllis on an old barn.  The women who have lived in this place have always had wonderful flower gardens, so this block is in honor of all of them.

Next time, maybe I’ll have some actual fabric quilts to post.

John is a private pilot, and Mary makes nine-patch quilts to give as gifts. Both of them are represented in this Flying High Ninepatch block on their barn.
