More Pictures of the Turning Twenty Quilt

I know it's a simple little quilt, but I am in love with all the texture from the stitching.  I tried and tried to get good pictures and even let my husband show me a few little tricks with the camera.  Not that it helped too much, 'cuz the quilt looks better in person than in my pics.  But I DID try. lol
I'm calling it 'Sweet Dreams'.
Every striped fabric patch has a different (casually drawn) flower stitched onto it.  The light catches on the variegated thread that I used and really makes them stand out.  You know, if you're actually in the same room with the quilt!  Oh well.  I'm sure if you click on the pics, you can see the detail better, but don't feel that you have to.  I wanted the pics for my blog diary because I know I'll forget after the quilt has been gifted and long gone.
All washed up with that crinkly goodness.
On a completely different note, I finally finished up the 4th border on my Basket Medallion quilt.  It's a double saw-tooth border that I sewed up with scrappy pale yellows and tans.  I kind of like it and then, I kind of don't.  I have ideas for the next border (which definitely influenced the 4th border), so we'll see if it all comes together in the end.

Sometimes the end result is better than I ever imagined and then there are the times that I cringe and go looking for my seam ripper.  Only time will tell with this one!


  1. Gorgeous finish - your quilting is lovely and I like the second quilt too.

  2. Your quilting looks great. And the medallion is coming on beautifully.

  3. love both of them! the medallion is looking great with those borders

  4. The quilting with perle cotton on Sweet Dreams is a nice surprise... I really like the look!

  5. Love the colours of the turning 20 quilt, they go together so well. And just how many borders does the basket quilt have?

  6. Both wonderful. Isn't turning 20 a classic? Your quilting looks great.
    The basket medallion is fabulous in color and skill ;-)

  7. I love the green in Sweet Dreams. Thanks for pointing out the quilting in the striped blocks - Love it! I guess a simple patchwork pattern lets the stitching take center stage.
    The points coming together on the 4th border almost look like a star. I look forward to seeing what you do next.

  8. just love the basket medallion , wow!!!!
    beautiful , great fabric choices too. Sweet Dreams is such a great springy quilt!
    congrats on a finish

  9. Both quilts are lovely but I really like your basket medallion quilt!

  10. I'm a huge fan of your quilts Audrey. If you ever put out a calendar I'll be first in line for one.

  11. Would you share your pattern for your "sweet dreams" quilt? My son leaves on his mission for our church this summer and he wants me to make a quilt for him in fall colors and he loves this pattern. Thanks
