Jane's Back to Nature Quilt

Jane has finished her masterpiece! She is a person who just last year just made quilts with squares, rectangles, etc and would not try a triangle! NOW look what she has done! Wonderful quilt! She chose the Grateful quilt pattern which has leaves and acorns on it. I quilted it with Fisherman Red. Nice job!

This is the border print, so full of leaves and acorns!

Rose Mary's ABC Quilt

Is this just the cutest little quilt? Rose Mary found it at a sale, but it wasn't finished so she bought it and finished the embroidery and brought it over for me to quilt! I love those lazy daisy flowers framing the letters. So cute! Great job as always, Rose Mary!

The pattern is called Flower Swirls, quilted in white thread.

The Wonderful Box from Columbia MO!

All of these blocks and quilt tops came this morning in one box from Columbia MO. Christy Gray and her guild members collected these and what a treat! There are house blocks, rail fences, sampler blocks, sets of all kinds and wonderful fabrics! Wow! Guess the current count of 628 just went up!
Look at this one! It's hand pieced, an old timey quilt that is to die for in my mind! It will make a spectacular quilt! Some lucky person will love this one!

Dresden quilt top, hand button hole stitched, can't wait to see this one quilted! Awesome!

A Finished quilt for Australia! How wonderful!

Kindle Covers!

Here are the two Kindle covers that I finally finished! One for my mother and one for me. After finding the pattern, misplacing if for forever and finding it again, they are now done! The green one is my mother's and she has it in her hands right now, reading the history of the life of George Washington! And she says it's good!

Rachel's French General Quilt

My daughter was traveling and ended up at the fabulous French General store in LA. She bought these wonderful fabrics and brought them back to me to put a small quilt together for her. I did a simple block construction with red borders. I quilted it with the pattern called Heart Flower pano and quilted it with Mother Goose colored thread. I put that flannel on the back so we have French on the front and USA on the back!

The patriotic flannel backing.

Judy's California Dreaming Quilt

Well, Judy has been out in California missing the Nebraska winter, so we all feel sorry for her, but she as usual has put this colorful quilt together, probably sewing on some beach, and so I call it California Dreaming, because we are all dreaming of California weather around here! She used a multitude of Kaffee Fassett fabrics. She's always coming up with wonderful combinations and bright cheery quilts! Nice!

Wouldn't you know, Judy has found this interesting and wonderful oriental fabric for the backing. It really shows off the quilting pattern called Lexi. It was quilted in Spring Green thread.

Emily's Baby Quilt

THIS is a cute quilt! Emily made it for her employer's new baby, Everett. He will love the bright colors and it really is such a wonderful quilt for a baby! Nicely done!
Emily chose the Inside Outside quilt pattern and it was quilted in Bermuda Blue thread.

The Dr Seuss cute print for the backing.

Sara's Wedding Quilt

Marge pieced this beautiful wedding quilt for Sara. The rich colors and excellent piecing will thrill this bride to be! The red cornerstones set this off with the interesting white sashing made with an eyelet type fabric. Marge chose the Simply Roses quilt pattern and it was done in cranberry thread. I'm sure this quilt will be very much treasured! What a wedding gift!
