I finished my guild challenge quilt in time for the competition last Thursday night. There were 15 other quilts made by guild members. It was fun to see what everyone came up with. Pictured below is my challenge quilt "Summer Song". If you would like to see all the quilts that were made for the challenge go here.Fall is birthday time here at Apple Avenue Quilts. My daughter-in-law Amanda has the first one. One Day last spring we were shopping at a local quilting shop and found two decidedly fun fall fabrics. When I saw that she liked them so much I grabbed them. They were even on sale! I debated what to make with them and being as they in no way would look good together, I decided to make a two sided table mat for her round dining room table. I thought she could use one side for Halloween and the other for the rest of autumn.
She also needed a pin cushion, so I made this one for her. I filled it with crushed walnut shells.
She seemed really happy with both gifts.
