Modern Bars by Rose

The piecing is quite simple on this quilt, but it makes a great effect.  The solid colored bars are approximately 3 5/8" wide, by up to 19" long.  These are then framed with 5/8" black bands.  The bars are off set into the turquoise background with the top section being slightly narrower than the bottom.  Rose asked that I quilt the bars by stitching in the ditch (SID) to outline the bars and also the black bands.  The white center bars look like they are lit with electric lights, but that isn't the case.  Just extra light reflecting.
 To accentuate the bars section of the quilt, I mimicked the quilting that I had done around the bars in the open turquoise section

Rose Winnie the Pooh and Popeye

 Another one by Rose's husband.  He stitched the appliques, and then Rose pieced the rest of the quilt.
 "Rabbit" from the Winnie the Pooh books
 "Eeyore" even has a real button holding his tail on, just like in the books.
"Popeye".  Not from Winnie the Pooh, but still on the quilt.  You can see some of the outline quilting that Rose started before becoming overwhelmed with the project.

MIckey and Minnie by Rose

Rose told me that her first husband had played with her new sewing machine one time while she was out of the house, and this was the result.  Yes, this is all thread painting, meaning he made the design by making the stitches himself.  This is not an embroidered design that you would download and have the sewing machine stitch out while you watched it. 

 Mickey and Minnie's faces are stitched too, they just don't show up so well on the white background fabric.
 This Mickey is appliqued, but the "drawn" lines are stitched.  So, pieces of fabric to make his face and ears, but the outline is all stitching.  Even his pupils are stitched.   By the way, this is on the back of the quilt.

Amish Garden by Beth

Quilted with wool batting so very fluffy, and light, and wonderful for hand quilting!  I've even machine washed and dried this, and it didn't shrink up terribly.  Just enough to make it wrinkly and extra warm.
I changed the pattern slightly from the original in the magazine.  I already had 1.5 inch hexagons, so used those instead of the smaller size recommended.  This gave me bigger blocks.  Being quite tall, I also added rows to make it long enough for me to snuggle under.  It's got to be long enough to wrap around my cold toes, and then tuck up and around your neck.

Each hexagon is outline quilted with a grey thread, but it mostly looks white on the quilt.  When I chose the thread I wanted a little bit of contrast, but guess I should have gotten a bit more.

Toby's Napkin quilt

Our lovely dog, Toby, has a habit of using this ottoman as a napkin.  As in, rubbing his face along it after he eats.  Consequently, the sage green ottoman has gotten rather brown and dog food shaded on one side.  So, I grabbed my fabrics, and a block and whipped out a "napkin" for him that can easily be thrown into the washer when it gets icky. 
Now I have to confess.  Math isn't my strong suit.  Consequently, when I made it, the sides and top and bottom aren't the same length.  You can't tell in the photo, but trust me.  It made perfect sense when I had it laid out on the guest room floor though!  Besides, all the leftover blocks made a lovely quilt top that will eventually be quilted up for charity. 
By the way, the napkin works great!

Log Cabin stars

Another one by Michael.  Log Cabin blocks with stars in the center.  Frankly, I didn't realize how gorgeous this quilt was until I hung it up to take this photo.  Quilted with "Log Cabin" pantograph.
