For All Seasons

I love it when the creative bug strikes at Lone Star House of Quilts.  It hit Kerry McCutchan when she was going through Jo Morton's book, For All Seasons.  The book is filled with beautiful projects, of course, but here is the one that bit Kerry:  the Love Apples quilt on page 24.

Isn't it a beauty?  Four tiny blocks in just the right colors.  Kit is available for $19.50.

Here is another great quilt from Jo Morton's book.  Joyce Andrews made her Variety Stars from the Blue Variety fabrics from Jo Morton.  The pattern is on page 34.

Jo's book is available at Lone Star House of Quilts and http://lonestarhouseofquilts.com
