Tuesday Quilt Surprise

 I thought some of you would enjoy these....
I call it Tuesday Quilt Surprise because I rarely quilt these days and seldom have it on my blog...

But my sister recently made these two quilts and dropped by the other day to show them to me.
I wish I could remember the block names... but, of course, I can't.

This one below.... the fabric in the border and on the back... is from Walmart!
I've made a few quilts using Walmart fabric... they sometimes have the perfect thing!
That always makes me happy!

 These are for designated recipients... my sister is always making someone a quilt.
One of these is for a young man that was ejected from the pickup truck he was driving
and lost his arm.... when he was 18... a couple of years ago.

what is the saying....
When life gives you scraps, make a quilt.

Happy Tuesday!

I love the red and black one, because of the wild patterns in the fabric. Beautiful work!

These are beautiful. I am a great admirer of everything quilts. I have several myself, but don't do that.

Blessings on your day, Linda,
