Blue Brick Path

This is the quilt I made for our newest daughter, Lynelle. A newlywed. Married to our son. Our family now feels complete.

Girl binding
It is part of the stack of 'girl' quilts I made. I already blogged about this one.

Lynelle's Block Quilt
The fabric is by Pillow and Maxfield and the pattern is my adaptation of Amy Butler's Lotus Brick Path.

Lynelle's Block Quilt backing

The backing is my favorite fabric in the grouping that I picked out.

Lynelle's Quilt backing
Isn't that a simple, yet gorgeous combination of two blues?

Ashley (married to my oldest and mama to my grandson) took these close ups for me. I will be sharing the quilt I made for her in another post. {It is the last one in that beautiful stack of 'girl' quilts}

Lynelle's Quilt
She did a great job of capturing this quilt.

It was so satisfying and almost calming to work with these blues and greens. Do you find certain colors affect you in different ways when you work with them?

My other girl, Janice, wanted to make her quilt. I was tickled pink!! I don't know exactly how she feels about sewing, but it was rewarding to help her and watch her work on her quilt top. It will probably be summer before she can get back to finish it.

I have prayed for these daughters since my boys were little and God came through in a big way! Of course, He always does, if we just 'see' it!
