Pin It Weekly #66

Happy Wednesday!  Yes, I remembered in time!

Before I begin pinning, I thought I'd update you on the AMB Blog Tour that is happening in the 50 states and hosted by Clothworks.  Well, they are providing the eight fat quarters that each blog is offering as giveaways.  Go check out the lovely license plates that are being debuted on the blogs.  Today's states: Alabama (Green Quilts) and Massachusetts (A Quilting Jewel).  


And now for some fun pinning.  I'm all into the modern quilt thing, so I've been looking at all sorts of modern quilts.  No, don't jump ahead....I'm going to do a little thinking about some traditional quilts just to give them a chance.  What do you think of these pretties?

If there's a traditional quilt type that I love, it's Dresden plate quilts.  Of course you can do it up in all styles, including some beautiful modern fabrics, but these are more traditional in nature.  Or not....
Beautiful colors

Have a great rest of the week.  I have one more day of students and one day of records and then.....woo whoo!  Quilting all day long....24/7.....unless there's a nap on the schedule.
