|All the hankies were fused to the background fabric, and grouped together in clusters of 4 "blocks". Sashing strips to match the border around each block of hankies.|
|I love this quilt. I love Asian fabrics, but never seem to use them. Simply quilted with the "Oriental Clouds" panto, and thread that just about perfectly matches the background. This was you get texture but not in your face "look at the quilting."|
I believe that this one goes to Ann's son, but may be mistaken on that.
The pinwheels blocks are made up of stuff from the stash. The outer border is a coordinate that came with the initial panel from the quilt shop in Weiser, Idaho.
Another quilt for the police. This one is made up of squares that were cut at 2", so they end up being 1.5" squares when they are stitched. Really fun to play with the two different fabrics that make up the cross, then the just random for the background. Lots and lots of memories in this quilt As I was quilting it I would try to remember the original project that the fabric was used in, but there are just too many to remember them all. Most fun was using up to finish this quilt. Grandma Pearl would be so proud. Used up a bunch of squares, pulled the borders and backing from my stash, and all of the black binding was already made, just needed to be stitched together to make it long enough.
|Isn't this a sweet idea? Leigh took her granddaughter's baby clothes, and made a quilt out of them!|
|I don't know why but this rainbow striped onsie makes me happy to just to look at it!|
I had to ask. These are the footies cut off of her rompers. Above and below are two glittery headbands because every girl needs some sparkle.
|I love to make and quilt baby quilts. So fast, and so fun.|
|This one is so perfect for the new parents as mom is a Marine Biologist. All done with ocean animals, and quilted with the "Ocean View" panto. Shells, starfish, even a seahorse or two.|
|This is a fun quilt that Delores made for herself. I don't know how many she has made, but FINALLY, one for her.|
Delores also foundation pieced all of these fabrics to muslin squares to keep them from fraying, or stretching. Makes the quilt extra heavy, and cozy.
It's also fun to find fabrics in other people's quilts that I have in my stash as well. Gives me a chance to play "remember"

|Yes, Carole is at it again with her embroidery machine. Amazing work! Quilted primarily with white Glide thread, but she chose "Military Gold" for the red borders.|
Selena's mom, Natalie, is a long time quilter, and has shared her love of this craft with her daughter.
Selena chose all the fabric and did all the work on this fun Zig Zag quilt, and she chose the quilting design and thread as well. Did I mention that she did the piecing when she was 10 years old? Well done!
Quilted with the "Clematis" pantograph.
|This is a quilt that Bev made for a relative, and sadly, can't remember who. All made with flannel and corduroy cut on the bias, making it a little stretchy. Gonna be a lovely wrap up and cuddle when the weather is cold quilt.|
Quilted with the "Heart Attack" panto, and while I still don't care for the name of the panto, I really do like how it turned out.
|Joe is my middle brother, and biking buddy. I've know for how long that his birthday is in October, and yet still didn't get his quilt to him until November.|
|Quilted with leaves in the outer red border, and bike fabric for the inner border.|
