quilt progress!!

I have the Posh top together! I am really happy with the way it turned out. I love that border fabric!

I also picked up Josh's tractor quilt and the Carpenter's Wheel quilt from the long arm quilter. I had the quilt store over in Liberal quilt these two for me since I just don't have the time or space to do them myself right now.
I wouldn't call the tractor quilt pretty. For that matter the fabrics don't even really go together. But it works. The tan looks a lot like a summer fallow field and the green looks like corn or soybeans if you were flying over the fields. The main thing is it's definitely a boy quilt and Josh is going to love it!!

The Carpenter's Wheel is actually a dark burgandy, a tone on tone gray and a gray with pink roses. The burgandy is way too orangy in this pic.

I really like the Posh quilt. I want to do that pattern someday...just to decide on what fabrics!

What a show, Kathy!
Posh is gorgeous, I can't get enough those colors!
Josh's quilt....great job! It would catch my son's eye for sure!
The Carpenter's Wheel's color combination is lovely. I have to make a note to myself, I have grays and burgundies....this is very inspiring!

Sorry about the snow! We're getting snow showers this weekend, it's the Winter that just won't end. Stay safe if you're having to drive any where!
