Marie T's Sunflower Quilt

Just a binding and it will be done! A great quilt for the upcoming holidays!
A close up of the quilting pattern. Large sweeping lines leave soft spaces between the quilting.

A wonderful choice of fabrics!
Marie has finished a quilt for her sister's birthday and I just received it today and quilted it. She chose the "Florence" quilt pattern which really looks nice on the quilt and Egyptian Topaz thread, a bright gold. Your sister will love it!

Aunt Sharon's Postage Stamp Quilt

My aunt Sharon inherited this wonderful lap quilt from her neighbor. It was mostly hand pieced with one inch pieces of old vintage scraps of fabric of all colors and patterns. A wonderful keepsake from a dear neighbor!
I quilted this with a near white thread and used the "Sticky Buns" quilt pattern. An addition of red and blue borders finished the quilt.

Here is the finished postage stamp quilt that Sharon had acquired from her neighbor's family.

Cute Cat Quilt!
The Christmas Santa Quilt. Great quilt for the holidays!

The Christmas panel with Christmas strings of lights in gold thread.

Here's a cheerful Christmas quilt!

Marie gets ready for Winter!

Winter's coming, time to get those flannel quilts done! This has the "Garden" pattern of quilting on it and Fox colored thread.
There's nothing like a warm flannel quilt!

A close up of the quilting pattern. A wonderful quilt!

Marie has again made another paddlewheel quilt, using up that fabric stash but they are so nicely put together! She chose the Chiveblossom thread and the pattern was Grains of Wheat. The pattern is a very neat all over pattern and looks great on any quilt.

Sister Jane's Batik Challenge Quilt

Here is Jane's quilt that I received in the mail today. I just finished it and I think I might be seeing more batik quilts from her after this one! Nice quilt!
She picked the Ginkgo pattern and Sumac thread for the quilting.

Jane's quilt group traded batik blocks and this is the way she set and finished her quilt.

Susan's Fish Quilt with a Minkee backing... so soft!

This must be the year of making fish quilts for kids, because I have quilted 3 of them this week! But they all are going to be loved by the grandchildren that get them! Here is Suan's rendition using fish prints.
The light pink minkee backing, so very soft and cuddlesome!

Susan picked the simple meander for her granddaughter's quilt. I used a fushia thread.
Using the minkee backing has created a heavy warm quilt that is wonderful!
Great job, Susan!

Linda's 2009 Oxbow Quilt Project is finished!

This was quilted with Lilac colored thread and a quilting pattern called Pretty Posies!
A close up of one of the blocks.

She was working on this quilt at the retreat and it is now done! So beautiful! There's just something about batiks and purples that can't go wrong and the sashing that she used is so neat!
You really should see this quilt in person to get the full appreciation of it!

Kathy's busy making Christmas presents for the grandkids!

This shows the plane in the quilting.
This airplane quilt will delight that grandson! A really neat plane pattern. The quilting is clouds and planes done with a very light blue thread and it has a red and blue flannel backing.

This one was quilted with a thread called Prune and the Fancy Fish quilt pattern.

Here is her other fish quilt, so colorful, those kids will love them and she put cozy flannel on the back of all of these quilts!

She picked the Sea 5 pattern and Seaweed colored thread, a very light green that ended up looking really nice on the quilt top. Notice the sea horse, the octopus and seaweed in the quilting.

Here is one of her fish quilts made with really nice batiks!
Great job, Kathy, I'm sure those kids will love these colorful, fun quilts!
