Schley will be teaching a class on how to make this striking quilt at Pieceful Hearts in Lisle. She has a very clever trick from making those perfect points.

Diana's sister had a most unusual wedding in a deer-stand with dogs as the attendants and a chocolate stump-shaped wedding cake! Natually she wanted her wedding quilt to contain camouflage fabric. Given that challenge, I'd say that Diana did a GREAT job! It is quilted with Jessica Schick's "Luscious Leaves" pantograph.
Beth seems to have a long parade of graduating nieces and nephews. And they all get a quilt from their aunt! This beauty is quilted with lavender colored thread with Jody Beamish's "Waterworld" pantograph. I prepared it for hand binding for her so she's almost done!
This quilt pattern is called Daisy Chain. The colors remind me of a stormy spring day.
Sandy chose a light variegated thread and Tammy Finkler's "Blowing in the Wind" pantograph.

Lory made this for a friend who requested a "calm quilt in neutrals". Hhmmm. The photo doesn't do its bright cheeriness justice!
Lory is a very precise piecer and this was a very fun quilt to work on! Continuous curves enhance the diamonds. Butterflies flutter around the center star.
Connie's son loves the Alice in Wonderland story - so when this fabric came out, she HAD to make a quilt!
These quilts are for one of the organizations that try to provide a quilt to every wounded soldier. These are "Wood Pile" blocks and they were left over from a project I did with my mom and sisters. They are quilted with Jodi Beamish's "Waterworld" pantograph.

It has taken a long time for Marilyn's quilt to go from concept to bed covering. But it finally made it! And it is so fun to study it both up close and from a distance.

It was a race to see whether I could get this quilted before Diana's 4th grandchild was born. Unless something is happening right now, it looks like I "won".
Barbara is calling this one, "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish".
