A Baby Quilt

Here is a picture of the latest baby quilt, finally completed for my great niece Megan. Since I finished the quilt in my usual not so prompt fashion, Megan is already six months old. I included the picture from our 4th of July family gathering so you can see her. (She's the one with the cute hat .)
Our family is having something of a mini baby boom, so there are more quilts for little ones in the works.

More quilt gifts

The pictures here speak for themselves, don't you think? I especially love the red and green one.

Joan's Quilt

As I have done in years past, I will try to post the quilts from our exchange bit by bit. This fun bright quilt was made by my friend Joan and given to Nancy. Joan is very adept at hand applique and prefers the freezer paper method of prep.
One difference in her method is that she removes the freezer paper before sewing and uses extra starch and glue as needed to keep the pieces in shape and in place. I do love the brights, and this is a wonderful quilt.

Hello Again

Although I happily read many of your quilting blogs, I have gotten out of the habit of posting. With the move to the new artful qulters ring, I will try to resume posting often enough to stay in the group. This photo is of the quilt I made for our quilter's exchange. My friend Gayle loved it, and I certainly had fun making it. The detail is not clear in the photo, but there is a quilted outline of Iris flowers and leaves in the green area to the left. Pictorial quilts of flowers are not ground breaking in their originality, but I still love the way this one turned out.
