Shakespeare in the Park
I am very excited to be finished my “Shakespeare in the Park“! It’s a pattern by Judy Martin in her book “The Creative Pattern Book.” This pattern was frustrating. I found the directions often did not make sense to me. And, of course, I made it bigger, so then I had to figure out how many extra blocks to make. Adding the extra border was easy to do! In the end, I’m glad I persevered. I did a scrappy binding. My husband was not too sure about it, but when it was finished, he said that it was the perfect binding! 🙂 I love this quilt – now that it is finished!
Pink Snail’s Trail
A flimsy is completed. Ready for sandwiching and quilting. A few posts ago, I showed 2 lay-outs for a snail’s trail (or monkey wrench) quilt. Most everyone commented that I should do this layout and I’m glad I did! I think it will be fun to quilt this one!
Now that I’ve posted the picture, I realize that I still need to add a border.

Two beautiful quilts! I’m so glad you persevered as well! Absolutely lovely! Thank you for sharing!
This is a great pattern and your version is gorgeous. I also love the second quilt. Both are fantastic. Congrats on one of the many “finishes” of a quilt!
Congratulations! Those are both so beautiful!
Shakespeare in the Park is beautiful! I’m sorry the pattern was frustrating, though. I hate when that happens. Looks like it was worth it!

Looks wonderful Gail! I like the pink snails tail too – you made the right choice (in my opinion!)
Both quilts are lovely, and a little similar. I love the colors in Shakespeare – it is slightly a green hue? Great job! ~smile~
They are both very beautiful quilts. Even though you found the instructions difficult in the first one, it turned out great!
