Quilty Eye Candy

Here are some pictures of some of the quilts the other quilters were working on.
 Margaret was working on her bunny quilt at the last retreat (Which you can see here:  http://missyscakesandaprons.blogspot.com/2013/05/quilt-retreat.html ) She has been saving bunny fabrics for years.  She finished her top last weekend!  Every piece of fabric has a bunny on it!
 I love Debbie's nine patch quilt and her use of borders.
 She was working on this quilt last time also and here is the finished top.

 This quilt was made from a block exchange and she added the applique blocks which are perfect match for the spools!  Be sure to click on the picture and get a closer look.
 This is Sue's king size quilt, I believe it is called Scrap tease?  I would have never thought of using a plaid for the border, but it looks great!
 Mary Lou and Leslie whipped out these fall tablecloths runners.
 Debbie had bought a pre-cut tumbler kit and sewed this top together in one day!  I just love these majestic colors!
 Valerie is making this quilt for her son.  I can't remember what it is called, but I love this block!  I think the material in the middle block is perfect and really sets off the material in the rest of the block.  I can't wait to see this one finished!
I have a lot more pictures but will have to share them later.
The winner of my book giveaway is Judy from Hummingbird Crazy Quilter.  She is a new blogger, so be sure to stop by and say hi!

what a smorgasbord of beautiful quilts! The Bunny-land quilt is so sweet and you are right about the borders.......they really make the main focus of a quilt pop. The spool quilt is so much more with the addition of the applique....thanks for sharing!
