Sarah's Graduation Quilt

Marge put this bright and cheery quilt together complete with a piano key border all the way around it, for Sarah's graduation quilt! She chose Flamingo pink thread and the quilt pattern is called Splat. Sarah will love this gift! Good pattern for a fun quilt!

The borders.

The light was not good when this was taken as the backing is a very soft white flannel.

Alyce's Meet Me In Paris Quilt

Alyce bought this great kit and put this together to make a beautiful feminine rosy quilt! The fans sit on point in the center and it makes a wonderful display of her great piecing.

She chose May Rose thread and the quilting pattern was Just Roses.

The wonderful pink floral backing showing the rose pattern.

Betty's Butterfly Quilt

Betty was given these wonderful butterfly old timey blocks and she set them together on point with black sashing, added the floral borders and I quilted the design called Jacobean Flowers in Mother goose thread. What a wonderful looking quilt!

Easter Peep Show

I hung the Peeps for our Easter celebration. There were close to 246 Peeps and our granddaughters wanted to take them all home! You know, you can never have too many Peeps!

Peeps on the railing.

Pile of peeps.

Rows and rows of peeps, with their eyes done. You know how rabbits multiply!

The pattern is on the Internet (

and a person on the Statler Yahoo site digitized the shape so I was able to sew out the peeps on my longarm and then I just cut them out and cut them out and cut them out and then painted theirs eyes and nose on one at a time.......

Rachel's UNL Quilt

A customer had told me about these UNL fleece panels so I found one and put this cozy quilt together for Rachel for her birthday. I used the UNL football pattern and quilted it in white. It makes a very soft "can't wait for football season to wrap up in it" quilt!

Rachel's Placemats

I made these placemats for Rachel for her birthday. She has Fiesta Ware dishes in navy, red, yellow and brown. I found this fabric and decided she needed the green dishes also to go with these placemats so I added a few extra dishes in green so they all go with the placemats! After binding 10 of them, I decided that was enough!

Here is the front of the placemat and they are all alike on top.

The three pictures above show the backings of the placemats.
