JoAnn, these are all marvelous!!! Love the way they look blowing in the breeze on the line. My favorite of all is the green scrappy pinwheel. Just gorgeous!!!

Oh, how happy I am to see these gorgeous quilts! You are so talented, but your quilts are... Well... your quilts! I adore them. I am a bit of a quilt junky, but I think you know that! xoxoxoxoxoxox

These are gorgeous works, JoAnn. The pinwheel quilt looks like it's a-whirling and a-twirling on the line.

These are all so pretty! I'm impressed that you hand appliqued the Rose of Sharon. I have a pink one "in the works" but it is rotary cut - a very clever pattern, but not authentic like yours is!
Your pinwheel design is so playful! That must have been lots of fun to make!

How marvellous! Your quilts are beautiful! And so is the space you have to hang them!

How do you wash them? I have one I bought second hand and have never used because I'm not sure how to wash it. I love seeing yours hanging on the line.

Kay said...

These are so beautiful! I'd be afraid to wash them for fear of damaging it.

I love to see these hanging out in the breeze ... well, they would be pretty anywhere.
My machine is way too small to wash even one quilt.

JoAnn, you do so many beautiful things. I have always wanted a clothes line for displaying things. Not that I have anything as pretty to display as you, but what fun and what great pictures and such a wonderful talent...Happy Thursday..Judy

Nothing prettier than wash on the line...except beautiful quilts, drying on the line.
Just beautiful....you are an artist.
