TURNING TWENTY QUILT

I don't know if you all know Donna from Donna's in the Attic or not, but, you must go to her blog http://donnasintheattic.typepad.com/donnas_in_the_attic/ and check out her wonderful quilts. She is also hosting a great TURNING 20 QUILTING SHOW.

She also did a great giveaway where the only catch was you had to send her some material to make a quilt and then the giveaway was a quilt that she is making with everyone's material they sent.
This is the front side. It's it beautiful! I just love the colors and romantic flair to it. I'm hoping I win so badly!!!
Even the back side to the quilt is beautiful! She is showing step by step instructions for those of us who have never made one. She is making it look pretty easy. But you know how that goes. A pro always makes it look so easy. Then you give it a go and it's a mess. Her work is perfect.

Here is a quilt she made. I just adore the pink color. I would buy this quilt in a heartbeat if I saw it anywhere.

This is another darling quilt. Look at all that hard work she puts into her quilts. A real labor of love.

Here is yet another beauty. I could just look at Donna's masterpieces all day.

So if you are quilter, or just learning with her step by step instructions please join her in the Turning 20 Quilt Show.

Even if you don't quilt you will still enjoy her blog. She is so nice and fun.

Hugs,
Joanne

Those are very pretty. I love quilts but don't have the patience for doing one. I have the last quilt my Grandmother made. I think her eye site was failing at the time, because she didn't get all the stitches done correctly. I cherish it.

The quilts are all so beautiful, aren't they? I love the old quilts, too, they tell so much of our women's history.
Hope you are having a happy summer!

Hi Joanne: You realize that I live in Orange County and I am also 50. (We met through the Cottage Charm Giveway.) I went to Millikan in Long Beach and graduated in the Bi-centennial year: 1976.

Through blogging, I met a quilter on the east coast and although I don't quilt, I am a huge fan! These quilts are beautiful!

I am celebrating my 1-year Blogoversary with a Giveaway. Pop on by.

Hi Joanne! First off, how is dear sweet Gene doing?? Hope he is progressing right along!

Loved the look at her quilts, I am not a seamstress, nor a quilter and to me it all looks hard!!! I would rather spray paint and buy my quilts, not make them!
Hope all is well with you, hope your having a great start to your week.
XO,
DL
