Genie in a Bottle



Working on some more applique' and hand quilting. This one is 16.5"x18". Not sure where I found the leaf motif. I think it was wallpaper. I want to try and put that in a four block arrangement.

Alex's Quilt


I am hoping this is the last graduation for awhile. Had a lot of fun creating this "guitar" quilt for my nephew, Alex. 
Favorite color blue, so used batiks and a splash of red.

Jillian's Butterflies






My great niece drew this cute little butterfly and I transferred it to a quilt design. Reverse applique was used on the butterflies. Hand quilted with some embroidery details.

Keeping Warm

I decided I could wait no longer to use my soon to be studio. So I am staying warm and quilting away. Life is good!

Antique Blocks


Mom, what a find, from a garage sale. Looking to do something with these beauties. I think there are 10 or 12. Will have to double check on how many I have. Fairly nice size. 
A design wall for sure to see which way I might like them to be. 
She also found 2 Double Wedding Ring tops. Pay dirt!

Free Form Applique'

Playing around with some free form applique'. The saw tooth border is made from a single folded strip and the corners are 1/2 square triangles.. So nice to work that way. Not sure how I will quilt this. Left over fabrics from another project.
