  5. I love Repro meets retro but as a Nearly Insaner I just love Rhonda's version too.
    Thanks for the Great Show

  6. they are all beautiful quilts hard to choose a favorite!
    The Salinda Rupp quilt just because it is an amazing quilt, love this woman's color choices, so different than the original! The CWB quilt is simply stunning another amazing quilt. Miss Ollie's Folly love how she took someone else's design used it as a starting point and made the quilt her own....REpro meets Retro very fun, what a stunning quilt....
    Aunt well hopefully some day I will make that quilt as well
    I just love the red background and then how all the other colors pop on Milliesthat as a neutral! this would make such an impact on a wall.
    the last quilt is beautiful too, love the feathered star and the colors in this quilt....
    perfect star is a nice quilt too, I love stars so always attracted to any star quilt!

  9. I loved Insanity on the Goldfields - so much work involved. I also appreciated all the work that went into Civil War Bride. Thanks for sharing the photos Linda.

  10. I think Miss Ollie is at the top of my list from today's choices. Thanks for sharing photos of quilts I'd never get to see otherwise. I really appreciate that you took the time to add the maker and pattern or inspiration.
