The People Chose: Quilts

Welcome for another month of Jo's wonderful all-purpose SAL were the people choose the topic and everyone else tries to find something that fits! March's theme is is 'Quilts'.

 I don't quilt (yet...I find it fascinating, but where to find the time?!), but Jo had the great idea to include cross stitch that was made to be incorporated in a quilt, and I have two of those:

And a couple years ago I tried out English Paper Piecing, which is kind of a first foray into the world of quilting...I really need to get working on that sewing machine cover again, I remember loving it!

And then I just remembered I stitched a design with a quilt in it! It's at my grandma's place and can't get a picture right now, but I found the stock image and remember stitching it very well:

Paper piecing is my favorite! Very sweet quilts.

Leonore: Sweet post, that bear under the quilt is adorable, I have done paper piecing myself for a small project, I really like it.
Great idea to cross stitch for a quilt, cute puppy design, I love the scarf around his neck,

Thanks for taking part in The People's Choice this month. I forgot about the designs for the Syria quilts! I did two of those.
That's a very sweet pincushion too.

Pretty stitching. I love the little bear under his quilt.

Ahhhh, Popcorn the bear and Souffle the duck! I'm not sure if Popcorn's hugging the quilt because he's poorly or scared. Love it! :)
