New quilts to share

Okay, I almost completed this post and then deleted the entire thing!!  Maybe someday I'll be an expert at NOT deleting??

Anyway, I think I forgot to post final photos of my "Palindromes" quilt, made from a "jelly roll" of that name- fabric by Paula Nadelstern for Benartex.  I've had the jelly roll in my stash for awhile and decided I needed to do a half-square triangle quilt so I paired the jelly roll with another "white" one and voila....

I love the deep, righ colors in this one.  It's hanging in the family room at the moment so I can enjoy it!!  Notice the loom standing next to the first photo?  Perhaps this spring I should get that out and finish up the warp on it!  How many years ago now did I do all of those "looper" rugs?  I think I have enough loopers for another couple rugs and I'm SURE there's enough warp for at least another couple!  We'll see...

And now for the latest.  This is one of the string quilts I just love!!  This one in medium gray to white for Cheryl and Larry.  I've been planning it since I returned from Montana.  Their new home is contemporary - lots of white and crystal - I did get the info from Cheryl that she was going to accent one wall of the entry with a light gray - so here we are!  I'm hoping they will like this quilt and enjoy it for years to come in their new home.  AND, remember just how much I enjoyed my recent visit and our getting to know each other while I was there.
