Still Rowing...And Other Quilts

I am still working on the Row By Row projects. The one above is from The Quilt House in Indian River, MI. It uses a neat technique for the 'half circles': you sewed two circles right side together, quartered them, and turned them inside out. The quarter circles are placed on the squares and sewn along the seam allowance,

The row below was the 2014 one from Front Porch Quilts in Troy, MI. I enjoy embroidery and the cabin is super cute.

My friend Martha brought me a table topper kit from 2014--I forget which shop. It is an Irish Chain with fussy-cut appliqu├ęd circles showing lighthouses.
 A nice summer quilt!
I hand quilted and finished the block from Hawaiian-Inspired Quilts by Judith Sandtrom which I reviewed here. 
When I was at Petals & Patches in Cadillac, MI I saw this cute quilt hanger and dragonfly quilt. At the next stop I found the amazing dragonfly and cattail fabric. I made my quilt longer than the original pattern so I could have more of that great fabric.

 Below on a lily pad note the dragonfly button I found at JoAnne Fabrics.
A quilt friend liked it so much I am ordering two more of the quilt holders--one for her and another for me to so I can make another quilt for a gift!
