Women of the Bible BOW Leah and customer quilt

I finished the Women of the bible BOW- Leah
It's called lover's knot.
I am running "low" on the pile of hello sunshine, well not really LOW, but I set a "rule" that I wanted to go thru the pile ONCE before going back to reuse more fabrics, so I think I have maybe 4 fabrics left.
Here the leaf fabric is actually bluish purple, so I thought of Leah/ lilac and I really don't "love" purple, and Leah wasn't loved, so I thought that was fitting :-) then I did a matching green dot for the petals, I machine button hole stitched around- all in one shot without breaking the thread, I just started and one of the intersections and went around the outside all the way around, then ended at my starting point and did the inside.
Here is a customer's quilt I finished

She used the same fabrics I used for Sonja's quilt :-)
I quilted loopy flowers and leaves all over it

this is the back

Tuesday I got a HUGE box of fabrics from Tonya
I've ironed the crazy daisy fabrics, and two more "bundles" still have lots more to iron.
Go VOTE here for which quilt I should make with the crazy daisy fabrics

Monday was a day off for the kids- veteran's day, most of the day they played with marbles, Sonja watched :-)

I saw this on Bonnie Hunter's FB page and BORROWED it

I like your Lover's Knot block--and the reasoning behind the fabrics. : )
That is some pile of fabrics you received. What fun!
I love marble tracks! We have a couple of them and now the grandkids get so excited when I get them out. That is such a cute photo of little sister watching.

The BOM block is very fitting. I like the customer quilt colors.

Love the quilt so much, Bea! It looks so happy and that is what she wanted. Just watched Peanut eating that squash. Hilarious!!!! Thanks again for your hard work.

Just now reading so I missed voting but wow you had lots of good choices. I love the little clip art of RIP. If you don't mind I'm gonna have to use that one on one of my blogs or something. Since I love to clean house so well.
