Peggy started this quilt in 2000 when she took a class to learn how to draft and construct the center block. It is entirely hand pieced! She brought it to me about 2 years ago and I used my long arm to baste the layers together. You can still see the long stitches.
Mary made this quilt for her grand daughter who is due in October. There are tiny pink ants printed on the green fabric. After she took it home, Mary embroidered several larger pink ants climbing up the pink blocks. It is quilted with the "Big Bubbles" pattern.

Laurel gets an A for her beautifully appliqued colored circles. We used a rainbow varigated thread and the "Bubbles" pattern.

Wouldn't this be a great quilt to make for the man in your life? Barbara made it from 1 fabulous striped batik!
Cathie has made many, many T-shirt quilts for family and friends. And she has tied or quilted all of them on her domestic machine! But she finally cried "uncle" on this queen size , 2 sided behemoth. Take a moment to appreciate Cathie's distribution of color, size and density while combining at least 50 t-shirts.
This treasure was made by my childhood friend, Connie, for her parents' Diamond Anniversary! It was an honor to quilt it - and especially fun since I was there for some of the family legends! Notice the 4 quadrants of color to symbolize the 4 offspring plus THEIR children. Lots of love is stitched into this quilt!
