Claudia's Round Robin

In 2010, I joined a round robin focus group at my guild.  Here is Claudia's.  She made the pieced block in the center.  I was the first to receive her block, and the instructions for my round were to turn her block on point and add a 1 to 2" border.  I machine appliqued the flowers and leaves to the corners, using the light purple fabric she included as the middle section of the flower.  I bordered this new "block" with the same purple scroll fabric that was used as the outer section of each flower.

Here it is after quilting.

Claudia's "Shirt Off My Back"

Claudia purchased these antique quilt blocks and wanted to give them new life.  She chose a flower design for the blocks and leaves for the sashing and border.

Claudia's flannel quilt

I love Claudia's flannel quilt.  She chose just the right blend of fabrics to make this quilt look as comforting as it feels.
