WOW is right. Where did you find the Sunburst Lemon Peel and Unknown patterned ones, Lisa? Gorgeous!

Janet said...

They are all beautiful but my favorites are the Red and Green Wreath and the Toile and Calico.
Great job. Enjoyed all 12 days.

I have really enjoyed the 12 Days of Christmas post. Sorry to see them end!

I don't think I would have found it much fun to applique all those curved shapes on the wreath quilt. The maker must have had lots of patience.

Oh my goodness - what gorgeous quilts!! That unknown pattern one is so interesting. I love the corners of the sunburst quilt - I've never seen that done before. And the vines on the wreath quilt... Thanks!!

Rolling Star is amazing Lisa; my favorite of the 12. Thanks for a great '12 days of Christmas.' You beat the heck out of the Christmas carol :-)

All spectacular.

We really do have a similar eye. I bid on several of these quilts, sent a picture of the star/princess feather to my Mom today, and have been seriously coveting Stella's unknown pattern with the fabulous small pieces and wonderful limey green (it is wonderful but expensive).

Do you remember where you found the last quilt (1858 signature)?

Btw, the dated toile and indigo sold for $1,265.

Hope you are having a great year.
