COTTAGE COLORS BLOG PARTY "Aqua"

Joining the Cottage Colors Blog Party today to show you a bit of Aqua, yes mostly red but the Tea Pot is Aqua and I didn't have anything else available in that color. These are the Quilties I made when I was invited to join in a Quiltie Trade over at Sandra's Kayes who is a wonderful and talented quilter. You were to make 3 Quilties of your choice which was to include buttons and be 4x6 in size. These were the ones I created and sent,  a 4th one for the party hostess. It was alot of fun and  I used my Mary Englebreit fabric from my stash, I haven't quilted in a few years so this was something different, usually when I do it is a baby quilt for a gift. Don't forget to go visit all the bloggers that are showing off their vintage aqua and enjoy your visits. Have a wonderful and creative week!

Hi Marilou!
Your blog is so beautiful...I just love the colors and imagery! And the music...I know that song so well and haven't heard it in such a long time! I hope to carry it with me throughout the day. What a nice way to start my morning! The quilt exchange sounds like such a fun idea and your Mary Engelbright squares with the added buttons and trims are so sweet!
Best Wishes and Blessings,
Amanda

Hey Marilou!
Those quilties are cuties. I love ME and the old fashioned paper doll look. I'm glad you came by for ECS party too. I enjoy hosting/posting.

Mary E stuff is some of my faves. She is one of those artists who can really show off the bold colors and almost everyone loves it, especially when it is on a black background.
