Quilts I've Finished

Here's a showing of some of the quilts I've finished over the years.  It's a mixture as I work to try new patterns and conquer new challenges.

...a few to start...more to come...

Here's one I just recently finished.  It's a chevron pattern using fabric from the line, "You Whoo" (that's where the owls come from) and then I matched fabric from my stash to the main owl print fabric.  I quilted each line of chevrons differently and finally got it bound just before Christmas.  Machine pieced & quilted.  Completed in 2015.

Here's a closeup of the quilting.  I had a lot of fun machine quilting this one.

This is a favorite LeMoyne Star, hand pieced and hand quilted.  I love the variation in the quilt and the colors. I finished this one in 2013.

From the Jaybird Quilts pattern, "Tiny Dancer", I completed this quilt in 2016. I named it, "The Sherbert Quilt" as it reminded me of the colors of sherbert. This quilt is machine pieced, and I free-motion quilted it on my Janome 6600.

"Hello Kitty in Circles" is a quilt I made with mainly chocolate and pink fabrics, focused mainly on Hello Kitty fabric.  I originally made it for a friend's daughter, but was too slow in getting it completed as she grew out of her "Hello Kitty phase".  No worries.  The quilt is a great size for a throw quilt in the winter. The quilt is machined pieced (yes, curved piecing) and I free-motion quilted it as well.

Santa Fe Star Trails was a quilt I'd made for a friend who retired from work.  She loved the southwestern look, so I picked rich, vibrant colors of the southwest and incorporated them into a quilt.  

Then, from the "remains" of the Santa Fe Star Trails quilt came the quilt I affectionately call, "The Leftovers".  I had several half-stars, but not enough to make full stars...so...necessity is the Mother of Invention.
This quilt became one of my first more modern quilts with heavy quilting in the negative space. I entered this quilt in one of the local competitions and took a Reserve Grand Champion. 

Here's a close up...hopefully the quilting can be seen better...

I took a class a few years back to create the dragon fly stained glass quilt wall hanging.  It measures about 2-feet square.  I love how the batiks really makes the quilt look like stained glass.
