Wall Quilt 20, "My Secret Garden" by Judith Lawrance  “This quilt was an on-line block of the month pattern by Justquiltin’ with Denise Russart years ago. It is much smaller than her quilt.

Wall Quilt 7, "Sunlight in a Snowy Wood" by Jane Kazmer  “The original trees were started in purples and blues.
