This fabric just made my heart sing. I got it in a mystery bundle from I did paper piecing for the tiny blocks on the side. As I am waiting for my Bernina to be fixed, these are in my UFO pile. I'll machine quilt and then add beads to make two fun wallhangings.
This quilt was a Elmo quilt for my granddaugter, Kylie. She loves Elmo. Since I am waiting for my quilting machine to be fixed, I could only tie it. the back is the oh so soft Chenile type fabric with little dots sticking up just waiting to be touched. When she opened it, she just laid her head down and said, "Soft.' That made it worth the work.

This quilt was done as a block exchange. I wanted to learn how to flip and sew. Some came out better than others, but overall it is a bright addition to my wall grouping!

This quilt was started as a block of the month and I quickly tired of the blocks and the instructions were horrible. I added some other blocks to make it into a lap quilt for my husband. He loves it. It is quilted with a poly fill and very soft. It's just the right size for cuddling up on a cold winter's night. Lesson to self: put a label on every quilt you make!!!! I think this was made in 2001.

This is a quilt I purchased at an art show. I just fell in love with it. It was mde in the USA by several women. It is hand quilted. It is 100 inches by 110 inches so it hangs on the queen sized bed like a bedspread. I can even imagine piecing all those tiny pieces. I like to do things that work up faster.

Another "African" quilt that I liked.

This isn't one of my quilts, but done by one of the women in our quilt guild. I liked it so much I took the photo from when it was displayed at the quild.

This quilt was done in Fall of 2002. It was done by middle school students. They were trying a process of making stamps. We then stamped onto the fabric and I made a quilt that we hung in the halls that year. I completed it in the school colors. I wish I had a picture of the quilt we made from bright colors that still hangs in the library. Notice the flag. The learning process is evident here as reverse image needs to be made when stamping.

This is another wedding gift I I did for my son and his bride.

This quilt was done for a challenge in 2000 at our quilt guild. I gave it to my son. The color is a little off. It is "country" red/burgandy and blue and tan.
