The simple piecing shows off the great African motifs of the fabric.

Lisa's Trip Around the World
I have a new camera and it seems like I'm always making excuses for it. Again - the colors are washed out. The body of Lisa's quilt is stitched in the ditch. I thought it was going to be boring - but I really like it.

Boy - my camera did weird things! What looks blue is really a beautiful teal. Anyway - it is a great Disappearing Nine Patch pattern.

I try to make a quilt whenever one of my non-quilting friends becomes a grand parent. I have been collecting I Spy fabrics for a long time. Plus I was able to include a few squares that are personalized for this family.

Doris's Patriotic Quilt
This is one of two quilts that Doris made to honor her grandsons' military careers. The red and white stripes are machine pieced, the rest is hand pieced. The stars are PERFECTLY hand appliqued with the blanket stitch. What a wonderful tribute from a proud gramma.

Sara's Wedding Gift
Sara is "at that age" that she needs a wedding gift for a friend every few months. Lucky for her, her mother is the fastest piecer in Winnebago County.

Carol's Garden Twist
We quilted butterflies all over Carol's garden. You can't tell in the photo, but she took great pains to have all of the motifs "growing" in the right direction. Compare the pattern with Laurel's Music Quilt.

This quilt is enormous and very well made. 2 jillion seams and it is flat and square. Good job, Liz! It took an entire day to quilt the "Terry Twist" in the patterned areas with variagated thread.
