Bow Ties

The customers at Heart to Hand did it again! These are bow tie blocks from the Lottery Block of the Month that I won in January, 2009. Each "tie" is quilted with a different design, but a consistent background design. This quilt will go to the Portland Police Sunshine Division. Thanks to everyone who made blocks!

Jane's Flower panel

I love what Jane has done with this panel from Heart to Hand. I never know what to do with panels, so I never buy them. I might have to make an exception to that rule in this situation. She chose the King Tut Nefertiri thread (another favorite), and I quilted it with leaves and flowers.

Jane's coffe cups

Isn't this a fun quilt? The cups all have lettering underneath them with things like "Mexican Coffee" and "Double Shot" We chose to use the Rainbows thread on it (one of my new favorite threads) for the sheen and color changes. The quilting is a swirling pattern to resemble steam.

Norma's South African Fish

Norma pieced the South African mystery quilt from Heart to Hand. Her great-grandson got this quilt or his 4th birthday and reportedly prounouced it to be "awesome". I love the Rainbows thread that Norma chose, and the different quilting designs are so fun.

Laverna does it again!

Laverna is one of the most prolific piecers that I know. She made this one for the leader of her Bible study group who is leaving the group. Lucky leader to get such a pretty quilt. We quilted it with leaves and vines to match the design in the quilt fabrics.

Roy Rogers

Linda took a pattern from Thimbleberries, and used her Roy Rogers and Trigger fabrics. So fun! Makes me want to rent all those old movies and watch them.

Jane's wall hangings

I met Jane when she came into Heart to Hand with a friend. Next thing I knew, she was calling and asking me to quilt these for her. I love the curved piecing, and the spiral piecing. I'm not a fan of paper piecing for myself, but I love the look of it. We did a pond water meander on the crane quilt, and a paisley meander on the purple quilt. So pretty!

Dresden Plates by Harriet

Harriet's grand-daughter is the lucky recipient of this quilt. Machine appliqued, and quilted with feathers across the entire quilt top.
