This quilt took a lot of piecing! The pattern is officially "Faceted Jewels".

Lory is making this for a coming grandchild. She said that she blew up the design on the crib sheets by about 600% to get these cute animals. The background is quilted with loop-d-loops and there are jungle leaves in the green area. Look at the outer border. She is going to trim it into those zig zags so she'll have LOTS of right angles to bind.
Sharon is one of my most prolific piecers. She loves bright colors.
She finally got around to making a quilt for her husband. Can you see the quilting?
Pauline is mopping up some UFO's. The pinwheel quilt above is quilted with a blowing leaf and pinwheel pantograph. I like the way Pauline did the borders.
Quite a while ago I was given a bag of clothing worn by Gina's mom. Night shirts, t-shirts, sweaters, dresses....... I was asked to make 4 quilts trying to use as many items as possible.

Bunny took her 10 year old grandson to Alaska then made a quilt as a remembrance.
One of the worst things I can imagine is loosing my sight. I've been thinking about how tragic it is for that to happen to our service men and women.
So with the help of some other quilters, I'm making some especially textural quilts for the visually impaired.
I bought this Loralie fabric many years ago hoping I'd find a fun way to use it. Right now my 2 youngest kids are engaged. So I sprung into action and made pillowcases for the brides-to-be (so they can have sweet dreams).
Twice a year, my mom, sisters and other carefully selected relatives participate in Camp Stitchee Gume. Pictured here are the most senior and most junior campers this winter.
It is hard to wade through the loose threads and scattered projects by the end of the week - but you can see that we get a lot accomplished.
We are especially excited by the enthusiasm (possible addiction?!) of a new daughter-in-law! She created this "Wonky Cross" to donate to a fund raiser. She also provided the cute baby.
