Julianne's quilt

Here is a picture of our latest "family project" quilt, made for my grand niece Julianne who is getting married in June. Julianne's mom Janet chose the border fabric showing little birds on branches.

Modern Spring Quilt

I couldn't resist buying a jelly roll of this "freshcut" line of Free Spirit fabrics by Heather Bailey. I added in a few extras from my stash, along with some Kona snow, and now am well on my way to a new spring quilt. Of course, knowing how long it usually takes me to finish things, it may not be completed until next spring,

On the Design Wall

A nice simple quilt, great for using up scraps. Use 6" squares, cut in half diagonally. Stitch each set of triangle halves to a 1 1/2" x 8 1/2" strip. Trim block to 5" square, aligning the diagonal line on the ruler with the center of the strip. Easy and fun.
I think this will be the "year of the scrap". I have SO many fabric's time to concentrate on using them.

My Quilting Helper

On a family sewing day, we were rummaging through some flannel to make a pieced backing. We spread the fabric out on the floor, and of course Sunny had to test it out. I think she approves. (Don't worry, I washed it before we used it in the quilt.)

Christmas quilts again

A quilt for Sheryl, made by Barbara. Love the layered look of this one. Sheryl plans to hang it in her office.

This is not a great picture of my friend Joan since she has her eyes closed, but just look at the beautiful quilt she received from Carla. Carla said she was a little outside her comfort zone with all that applique, but I think she met the challenge and then some.

Bright Flowers

Nancy loves the brights, especially yellow and orange, so the quilt Gayle made was just perfect. A simple design, but as you can see, very appealing with the right fabric.

Beautiful Scrap Quilt

This beautiful quilt was made by Pam as a gift for Cindy. I love the wide variety of fabrics, which of course is the beauty of scrap quilts.

Christmas Quilts

This is the beautiful Christmas quilt I received from my friend Kathy this year,
And this is the Christmas quilt I made. I belong to a small group of quilters who meet once a month, and for several years we have had the tradition of drawing names and making quilts to exchange at our Christmas party. It's a lot of work, but believe me, it's the best Christmas party of the year.

Bright little Boats

This little quilt was made, completed, and given last year to one of my grand nephews. Our large extended family has been expanding these past few years, so quilts for little ones seem to be the order of the day. I had so much fun with the fabrics for this one.
