Fun Summer Quilts

Yesterday was the Sloanies day at the shop and Ruth Green brought in a couple of her finished quilts for us to see! The cute one above is called A Slice of Summer. The pattern can be found in Pat Sloan's Folksy Favorites book, and it has been released as a single pattern.

This is Ruth's Heartfelt Welcome, also found in Folksy Favorites. I love Ruth's choices in color. My camera doesn't do it justice, but her colors are soft and light, and Ruth does all of her own quilting.

I have done the Heartfelt Welcome top ~ haven't gotten to the quilting of it yet. My colors are darker and more similar to the colorway in Pat's book.

This last set is not a Pat Sloan pattern but from a pattern called Melon Madness from Meme's Quilts. The colors are so bright and happy, and the watermelons just sing summer!

Ruth does such beautiful work, I enjoy seeing everything she does and what fabrics she picks out, so I just had to share.

Enjoy the day!

Dawn all those are delightful to see. I too have done lots of Pats patterns.
