College Grad Quilt

Remember the college grad fishing quilt I made for my son??? Well he brought it back when he came to visit so I could show it at my quilting guild, he had to leave before the meeting so while it was at my house waiting for his return I entered it in the Pueblo County fair and it won a blue ribbon!!!!! I was pleased!!!!

Both of my other entries also won blue ribbons and one also won Champion (purple ribbon) in it's division.

Antique quilt

This is an antique quilt top that has been in my Mother's attic for at least 20 years. I brought it home and finished free hand quilting it this week. I learned a lot from this quilt. It is king sized so had lots and lots of practice with feathers, flowers and swirls. I used the rip away paper technique for the large roses in the blocks. This is an Irish chain design, possibly double Irish chain?? Not sure everyone who looks at it isn't sure either.

Finished Eight point star

Here is the finished quilt. It turned out really nice!!

Another Quilt to Do

This is a quilt Vicki made, it is a birthday present for a co-worker of hers to give his wife!!! I am so in love with this quilt!!!! He wants it quilted with stars..............hmmmmmmmmm still trying to decide WHAT kind of stars and yada yada yada!!!! I'm thinking Starburst by Patricia Ritter on this one. It needs something large and flowing. All the other stars are just too small. This quilt is so beautiful!!! I may end up making my own design for this quilt.

Quilts, Quilts & more quilts

This is a Christmas quilt I made and just finished quilting. Our quilting guild is having a Christmas in July sew night and we are making Old World Snowball quilts. The board members (me included) needed to have ours done for the July meeting. Christmas in July will be our theme for our sew night.
This quilt was also freehand quilted.

Three stooges and fairies

Here is Crystal's Three Stooges Quilt, I quilted this one using a pantograph called Top Hats. It turned out really well and she was really happy with it.

This is a baby quilt I made for my neighbor. I freehanded feathers all over the borders of it. It was my first time quilting feathers freehand the picture is a bit fuzzy. Actually this entire quilt was freehand quilted.

More Quilts

This is a paper pieced wall hanging Charlotte made. The picture does not do it justice, it has very vibrant colors!! I used the chantilly lace pano pattern on it. She does such beautiful paper piecing!!! She just taught me how to do it this spring and I love it, now to get TIME!


I've been busy quilting for my friends!! This is a wedding quilt Vicki made and I quilted for her. It turned out awesome!!!
