"Belle Canto" by Judy

This quilt is HUGE~  I needed a 120" square batting for it.  But, it's also stunning!  All batiks in purples and creams, lovely and scrappy.

 Just a couple of shots to show the "Tangles" pantograph for quilting

"Bright Flowers" by Leigh

 Where does she find the time, and the inspiration?   I love all the amazing embroidery stitches that Leigh has included.  Just blows my mind.  Lots of wool applique, and a few cotton prints in the background.

Cat Silhouette and Cats and Birds by Gerry.

 Two quilts for Gerry's grand-daughter.  I've seen the cat silhouette pattern before, but  have never made one myself.  Gonna have to research that I think. 
Gerry chose the "Flat Cat" panto for quilting this one.
 And this is Cats and Birds.  The black snowball blocks are cat fabrics, and the white has birds in them.  Quilted in hot pink and teal thread, perfect match for the colors in the quilt top.
The backing, above is actually black, but the camera made it greenish.  Quilted with hot pink bobbin thread, appearing orange here.  But it does really show the "Kitty Kat" panto quilting design.

Squares by Ali

This is Ali's first quilt!  Well done to her.  She mentioned in her initial email that she needed "a win", so it made me that much happier to help her finish her quilt. 
Quilted with the "Vanilla Cream" panto, something with lots of circular motion to interact with the squares in the piecing. 

"Snowflake Spendor" by me

 My friend Kathy got me hooked up with an online mystery quilting group.  Oh dear.  I'm in trouble!  This one was my first one.  Only 2 colors, so chose orange and purple.  Of course, I went for scrappy, because it makes me happy, but this may have been a bit too much.
 Difficult to see in the photo above, but it's quilted with cat silhouettes, and the reason I chose that design is because of the cats in the border.
Then on Christmas Eve I'm madly stitching the binding down in the hope of finding a cop to give it to.  Found one, but he was behind me at a traffic light, and probably not the time to leap from the car and run back to him.
The following Saturday on my way home from an appt. I saw an officer pull into the parking lot of the church near our home.  Followed him, and then waited outside his vehicle.  "Well hello there." he says when saw me.
Nice officer, on his way to a meeting, but came over to pick up the quilt after his meeting.  And to get a bit of the story behind why.  It just warms my heart to "stalk a cop" and give them these.

Airplanes by Sara

 Sara and her husband recently moved to the country from the city so that her husband can have a shop space.  They are now living near a community airport, even though they don't fly airplanes.  So of course, Sara had to make an airplane themed quilt.  I have to admit it, I'm slow to notice this, but the quilt gradates from the bottom in greens, to the top in blues.  How sweet is that!
 A few plane propellers, and quilted with a cloud pattern
 Airplanes, flags and fields

Balloons by Sharyel

A new baby is on the way (or maybe here by now) for Sharyle's family.  Sweet balloons appliqued and a fussy cut Noah's ark  animals in all of the balloon "baskets".  Quilted with a panto of balloons, although difficult to see on the right side.

T-shirts by Bernadette

Here's a fun t-shirt quilt made by Bernadette as a gift.  Backed with polar fleece, so no batting, but still warm and cuddly.

Baby quilt by Joanne and friends

 Joanne and her friends got together to make a baby quilt for another friend.  Everyone seemed to use their favorite skills, so we've got piecing, applique, embroidery  all together.  Lucky little kiddo to get this one.

Carolina Lily by Judy

 Oh my, here's a beauty by Judy.  Hand applique, lovely piecing.

 I do love to quilt feathers, so let's see how many different ways can we put them in this quilt?
The setting triangles were quite large, so I broke them down into a smaller space by adding an inner triangle, then feathers around that.

Blue Triangles by Judy

And one in blue for her grandson

Quilted with Lorien's Dragon panto, perfect for a boy.

Pink 9 Patch by Judy

 I seem to be having a collection of scrap quilts going through my studio right now and I love it!  This one is so soft in pastels, but primarily pink for Judy's grand-daughter.

Mickey and Minnie by Michael

 Oh fun!  Start with some sweet Mickey and Minnie Mouse squares.  Make them into star blocks, and then add fabrics to develop into a log cabin block, and now you've got a fun quilt!  Quilted with the "heart attack" panto.

Red and White Medallion by Michael

 Oh Michael, you've done it again.  This quilt is a stunner, and I ddin't realize just how much of a stunner it was until I hung it up after quilting.

Scrap quilts are so much fun, what a great way to use your stash.  This one really worked with a limited palette, and I got to enjoy seeing fabrics from previous projects of Michael's.

Leigh's birds embroidery

Wow Leigh.  You and your embroidery are just astounding.

 The photos don't do her work justice, but I love the dimensional threads.  Can't hardly wait to start the next one.
