Hankies by Val

There is a lovely letter written on this quilt, and then quilted in.  I've taken a photo of it, and included it below, so I hope you can read it.  In a nutshell, Val made this quilt out of hankies from her grandmother and mother, as well as a few of her own. 
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.

 My maternal grandmother taught me that "a lady always carries a hankie", so I've usually got one with me. From the letter, it sounds as though Val' and her relatives were of the same mind.

 Edges crocheted  by mom or family friends.  What a lovely memento.  This will go on her guest bed.
Quilted with the "Feathers" panto in a soft white thread.

Rail Fence in Asian fabrics by Ann

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.

"Sorcerers" by me.

More fun using up fabrics!  The three sorcerer panels are from fabric that I bought on Cycle Oregon 2015.  They were supposed to have gone into the "Dragon Fire" quilt, but got lost in the shuffle.  I know that the shortest apprentice is just petting the frog.

 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.

"Postage Stamp Cross" by me.

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.
 Quilted with the swirls board, "Halloween" orange glide thread.  I though the white border would give your eye a place to stop, but then it needed something bright for the outer border.  I love the owls in it.

Molly's baby clothes

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!

"Sea Life" by Veda

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.

Pinks and Purples by Delores

This is a fun quilt that Delores made for herself.  I don't know how many she has made, but FINALLY, one for her.
 All done is shades of pinks and purples, with cottons, satin, and even some corduroy

Also many of the Disney princesses are represented here.

 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"
