Trip Around the World by Sharyle

 I love Trip Around the World quilts.  Such a simple design of squares, but the placement of the fabrics makes such an amazing design.  Sharyle's reminds me of a watercolor with the way the colors fade from lights to darks.
Quilted with King Tut thread and a panto of dragonflies and ginkgo leaves, wool batting.  Hmm.  May have to make myself one of these.

Carpenter's Star by Jillianne

Here's a portion of the outer border, all done in piano keys., but pieced with different fabrics from the quilt.  The outer border is about 10" wide.
Oh wow.  Here's a beauty.  The photo above shows as much of the whole quilt as  I could get to show.  I think our eyes naturally stop at the white border.
 A narrow cream border filled with feathers that wind between the seams, then a feather that goes out on both sides in the pieced border.  Leaves on a vine in the red border.

The center star with feathers that radiate out from the center.  All of the above is done with Glide Military Gold thread.

For the background fill, a Peacock Feather meander in Glide Cream
Trying to get a shot of the backing with the center star.  Squint.  You can see it.

 Jillianne chose Hobbs wool batting, and I love the loft that it gives to the quilt.  Also very light.  Lovely work Jillianne.

Skiing at Altenmarkt by me.

Oh so many years ago when I was in high school, I was lucky enough to meet and become friends with Ursula.  She was an exchange student from Modling, Austria who was staying with another family that we were very close to.  At the time, I knew how to knit only the most basic, unattractive slippers in two colors.  It was the 1970's, so you can imagine how bad they were.  Ursi and I were taking a weaving class, and she decided to knit a sweater for her brother at home, Georg.  I wanted to learn to do that!   Hence my love of knitting was born, even before it was cool.

When I saw this quilt pattern, I knew that I had to make it, but didn't know where it would end up.  I just saved the pattern for a while.  Meanwhile, Ursi writes to share that she's going to be a grandma!  This was the perfect excuse to make this quilt.  When Ursi was pregnant with her oldest son, I knitted a little blanket and sleep sack for him.  Now I'm just continuing the tradition.

Quilted with an edge to edge design called "Tangles" which is what my yarn would do when knitting with multiple yarns until I learned Fair Isle knitting.  Much better!
This quilt is approx. twin sized, really too big for a "baby quilt", but I hope that it's something they'll use as the baby grows.
I will admit the "Humility block" in the larger quilt, and have fun looking for it.  I was finishing the quilting on the last row of the quilt when I happened to look at it from another angle and realized that something was out of place.  Drat!  At least when I hung up the quilt to photograph it took me a while to find it again, so maybe it's not as bad as I thought.  Besides, only God is perfect, so I've included a mistake in my quilt.  (Like I have to purposefully make a mistake!)

One of the swim trunks with pocket intact.


The border on each is a velour, like maybe from a track suit. 

Squares by Heidi

This is about the biggest quilt I've ever quilted, and I've been referring to it as "Big Bertha" in my head.  It measures 114"x108", so yes, it's pretty darn good sized.  Also very heavy, so no hanging pictures because I couldn't get it to stay up even on my clamps.

This quilt was a commissioned guilt made by Heidi of "Handmade by Hilda"  Here's her website

A very simple quilt made up of squares, and then quilted with a  grid design approx. 1/2" from each seam allowance. 

Frist quilt by Trish and Zach

Mom always sad that life isn't fair, and she's certainly right on this quilt.  It's NOT FAIR that this is the first quilt that Trish and Zach made.  It's a wedding gift her her sister and future brother in law, so how appropriate that is a Double Wedding Ring.  The truly "not fair" part is that this is a complicated pattern with lots of bias edges and something that most quilters wait to try to take on for at least a few quilt.  These two just jumped right in from the start.  Truly amazing.

More feathers inside the "football" shapes, and continuous curves through all the rings. 
Quilted with Glide Thread and wool batting.  What a treasure for such a lucky couple.
