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 Camo Quilt
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's Magic Mountain
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.

Carol's Wolf Song
One of the many animals that Carol loves is the wolf. She was thrilled to find these panels. Most of the quilt is quilted with an overall leaf pattern.

Lory's Broken Star
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.

Marcia's Churn Dash
Marcia is in a "Swedish Bee" and they challenged themselves to make a yellow and blue quilt.
She said that this started out as a wall quilt, but it was so much fun that it kept growing. It is custom quilted.

Quilts of Valor
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.

Connie's Day and Night
How can 2 fabrics create such a striking design? I think it is Connie's exemplary piecing. Sign up for her class at Prairie Quilt Shop in Batavia and see if you can learn her techniques!

Karen's Bricks and Stones
This is like a more interesting cousin of the "Trip around the World". Karen chose traditional fabrics and that red gives it a great "pop". It is quilted with Jody Beamish's "Spin" pantograph.

Susan's Asian Boxes
The photo doesn't do this dramatic quilt justice! Just a few pretty fabrics, great colors, simple lines - very elegant!

Marilyn's Scrappy Squares and Pinwheels
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.

Diana's Grandbaby Quilt
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".

My Fractured Cottage
The instructions for making "Fabulous Fractures" were written by Brenda Esslinger. This makes me think of looking through a beveled glass window.
