Shylyte's Home Quarter from Night Owl Quilting

Shylyte has been collecting bright polka dot fabrics for a little white now.  When she learned the first of  her friends was going to be a grandma she knew it was the perfect chance to use them in a project.  Shylyte used 12 Fat Quarters to make the version of the Highway 10 Designs Home Quarter pattern.

Camo Lug Nuts from Night Owl Quilting

Gay selected the Mimosa pantograph which seems to blend into the prints just perfectly.

My husband is always a good sport when I need a second pair of hands to get some quilt photos.  He was motivated to try out a camo shot and it was kind of fun. The behind the scenes shot makes ...
