Finished blocks and another Trade Days Quilt

Now that I am caught up on the Civil War Remembrance blocks, it seems I don't have as much to show, but I'm always busy. These are the current finishes: CWR block #45, Christmas Greetings BOM "Christmas Eve" and three blocks for the Brownwood Quilter's guild BOM. They are made with batik's which I have never used, so I made three just playing with the colors. The greens and yellow I had won in a drawing, and all I had to do is add the purple and teal for the BOM requirements. Not really my color palette, but I was pleased with them..

The pictures of this quilt really don't show how cute it was, but I just loved it! You know how I love stars!! And the backing was darling. But alas, I didn't buy this one either!

Blessings to Ya'll

Your batik blocks are gorgeous. Not colors I normally work with, either, but I have found when I do something with Batiks, it doesn't seem to matter what colors I use. I just love them all.
You CW and Christmas blocks look good. I couldn't see them very close up, even when I enlarged the photo, but I like what I can see.
Wow, Doniene, you show great willpower to resist that fun vintage star quilt!! : )

The blocks and the blue and the greens are absolutely beautiful; totally my colours :>)
Well done, Doniene!

Hi Doniene,
beautiful, I have always wanted to learn to quilt, and admire women who are so gifted with their hands,
I am also enjoying your thankful list.
Thanks for visiting me and for taking the time to comment.
