Have you seen this stunning quilt?  It is hanging up front at the Attic Window Quilt Shop
Above, Jane B. shows us her wonderful quilt. Jane won first place at the recent West Michigan Quilt Guild show.  Her category was Two Person-Mixed and Other-Machine Quilted, Over 75”.  The pattern is Calendula Patterndrip’s Cottage by Crabapple Hill.  Here is what the Quilts On The Grand program said about Jane’s quilt:  “This quilt has everything you would expect to find in Calendula Patterdrip’s Cottage: Potion bottles, spell books, hobgoblin earwax, just normal stuff.  Shading was done with crayons.  Jane made the top and it was quilted by Bonnie Rhoby.
This is another quilt by Jane.  She does beautiful work. 
Above, Peggy shows us the quilt she made for her grandson’s wedding.  Kelsey K. VanBonn and Ronald N. Kamenski were married on Oct. 10 of this year.  What an awesome quilt.

A special thank you goes to Diana who took these pictures and sent them to me.  Great job!

I have been making the modern star block for years. It is the "double aster" block which is available as a free pattern on Quilter's Cache among others. Happy Stitching!

Love the Halloween quilt! Couldn't make it to the show this year, so I really appreciate you sharing this winner.
