My friend, Reidun, Erin and I visited all 12 quilt stores on the Blue Bonnet Shop Hop. Reidun’s first year. :) Lots of great quilts and inspration! We also visited a fabulous native plant nursery in Medina. Absolutely beautiful!!!! Everything was in bloom and a little bluebird came out of its nest to show off for us. Loved it!! Thanks Ernesto!

Here is the link to the Bluebonnet Shop Hop site if you would like more info.

Here is quilt top #2 for Lutheran World Relief. It is kind of hard to tell from the photo but it is made up of triangle of solid pink and pink and white gingham. There are 680 pieces in this quilt top!! No, we did not cut them. They were pre-cut in an old kit I found in a box that I had bought on close out at Hobby Lobby many, many years ago. Still, it was a lot of work! Everyone except Steve and plus Emily worked on this one. Even Travis ironed seams!!

Top #3 is a pretty four square. Erin put together the four square blocks and then I assembled the blocks for her.

Erin’s first quilt top for Lutheran World Relief (LWR). She has given herself a goal of one top per month. She had some help with cutting and layout but sewed every stitch herself!
