Parade of quilts, by one maker...

Linda was the grand prize winner from the 2014 Greater Atlanta Quilt Shop Hop. She won a $100 gift certificate from  each of the 10 quilt shops.
 Linda makes quilts and donates them to numerous charities. She donates quilts to "Quilts For Kids" - the North Georgia Chapter, the Center for the Visually Impaired (those quilts have to be red, white, and black); and various auctions for children's hospitals. How great was it that she won? We love that she came in and shared some of her quilts. She is self taught and quilts all her quilts on her home sewing machine - her Bernina 440. Linda doesn't make any designs except circles! Wish you could see these in person. The smaller quilts go to the preemie units at nearby hospitals.

The panel with the floral motif was a panel print she cut apart and put back together with other coordinated.
She stopped in the shop to buy more of the Kaffe Fassett shot cotton stripes for a commission piece. to  make this quilt a second time.
