Design Wall and Brother's Photos


I couldn't wait to see how the Strippy Ninepatch I'm doing for the 40 Quilts Service Project was going to look, so as soon I had enough pieces I set up a sample on my Design Door. I think it will look great with a dark blue starry border to pull it together.







I've mentioned before that my brother, Steve, is a fantastic nature photographer. Today he sent me some of his photos and I wanted to share
them. It was hard to decide which ones to post but here is what I came up with.

The quilt is coming right along!

Why don't you do a picture show in your sidebar like mine for 365 Photos this year?

I'm using the same design right for a kid's quilt for our project. I really like the large bars of fabric to show off a good print,don't you? Your's is going to be great, the child who gets it is going to love it, Fran! Wow, the photos are really beautiful!

Well, it was generous of you to share a little of that talent with your brother! Isn't it nice you can admire each other's creativity?
