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 I originally made it for a friend's daughter, but was too slow in getting it completed as she grew out of her "Hello Kitty phase".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.
