Blog Tour Day Four

Today is the day to visit:

You can find out how we met - of course it's quilt related! - and see a few pictures from the book!

Here's one more picture.  The two larger quilts (that are 17" square) are called Nine Patch Magic.  The red one from French General Fabric by Moda was the first project that I came up with for the book.  There are two things I like about this quilt: 1) I didn't use any funny shaped pieces.  I used a couple techniques that made this small block really easy.  2) There were leftover nine patch blocks that made a really fun bonus quilt!

In case you were wondering, the other two quilts were made from Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket for Moda.  That's actually another story.  I had to use this fabric because when I was little, the Great Salt Lake was really cool!  It isn't now.  I loved going to the lake.  The salt in the lake was suppose to make it so you could float.  I actually didn't notice that.  I was little.  What I liked was that there was a long shallow part of the lake.  We could run and play in the water without worrying about accidentally getting in over our heads.  Salt Air was the happenin' place at the Great Salt Lake that has been destroyed and rebuilt several times.  I think it actually is there now, but it isn't what it use to be.  It represents the glory days of the Great Salt Lake.  Aren't you glad to know that?!?  I don't know if that is what Cosmo Cricket was thinking when she named her line, but that is what it meant to me!
