Prairie Pine Burrs

  

Amy’s Creative Side is once more hosting the Blogger’s Quilt Festival and this is my entry – Prairie Pine Burrs.

This is one of my newest patterns but has actually been a work in progress for almost two years.

While I was working on the appliquéd one I was also making this one (in the three smaller photos) for a girl that was working for me at the time – the blocks are all paper pieced and seemed to take quite some time to get all the blocks for both quilts done.  A jelly roll and yardage for the star burst, the background and borders was all that was needed to make this quilt and was so much fun to use all the different prints in the roll.

The appliquéd quilt took some extra time of course but is so worth it in the end.

The embroidery took a lot more time to do (especially for me!), but when I see it now, I’m so happy that I took the time to do it.

The flower center yo-yo’s were the crowning glory and the final touch for this quilt and this has turned into one of my favorite quilts – so far!

Thanks Amy for hosting this Festival again . . . I love looking at all of the great quilts that are posted and seeing what everyone has been up to.

..I am off today so will hopefully get to some others on the quilt fest. I have some drawing orders to work on and then clean house... Now that our children are grown and my hubby and I are empty nesters, I can't be a "stay at home mom", but I would love to be a stay at home wife :o)

Blessings & Aloha!
