Octopus Quilt

Yes....I have gone octopus crazy.

 
While looking for some gray fabric to match the gray in the fabric of the above quilt, I came across this polka dot fabric

 and....

just had to have it.
 
This next quit top is a friend of mine.  Her anniversary was last Sunday.  She came to me with these squares (which were her mother in laws who had just passed away) and she wanted to make this quilt for her husband for their anniversary.
 
She had less then two days to make it.  So while she was working I put the top together for her.
That night she quilted it, straight lines (she is not a quilter) and the next day I put the binding on for her while she made the label.  Team work got it done in time.
 
 
On an even happier note, Accuquilt picked up a few of my patterns for their website.  Under new patterns.  They have one more to be put on and I have a few more in the works.
