Here are some images of my quilts.  As I finish projects, I will edit these to include images of the newer items.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Thanksgiving 2009.
At Thanksgiving 2008, I got everyone that gathered together to sign a quilt square.  There were 26 total and this is the quilt that was made from those.  One pic shows the detail. It was a very nice project to do and I enjoyed it greatly. (Since we are Texas-based, all the fabrics had a Texas theme.  Smiley  )

(Note for edit:  The original image site I had used is all weird now and the images would not show.  I had to re-post these here and I couldn't find copies of the original posted images of this quilt.  You can see how it looks in the background of this photo.  It was enjoyed by many and is now a treasured item in my home.)

This is a birthday gift for a friend's little boy.  I hope he wears it out.  It is all scraps except the 6 inch blocks around the border.  The back is denim with no batting.  I quilted it around the strips in a squarish spiral. I really enjoyed it and look forward to more very scrappy projects.

I am pretty unskilled but still very proud of how well these turned out.  


The first one is a casket quilt pattern.  I made it for a very dear cousin who is a mortician.  I hope it keeps her warm on many west Texas nights.
Mostly hand sewn and machine quilted.

This next one is for another cousin.  I designed it to show off the guitar fabrics.  If I made this again, I would replace the white squares with a darker fabric.  I had no idea those white blocks would SCREAMMMMMMMMMMMM out.
Machine sewn and quilted.

This next one is for an aunt who inherited a house full of African artifacts and art.  Walking into her home makes you just HAVE TO wander around looking and touching.
Machine sewn and quilted.

This next project was a birthday gift for my sister.  It hangs in her office at MD Anderson.
Paper pieced on machine, hand quilted.



Here's the back (for an easy and quick decor change when the season dictates it):

Here are the blocks I submitted to the Craftster Steve Irwin quilt project.  I really enjoyed that and hope to participate in such a project here again.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I am adding another project.  I think it is easier when the good pix are all in the first page.
This is a scrap project.  I put more detailed pix in the rag quilt tute on the discussion board-link is below the image.  I am using my scraps Bonnie-style as leaders/enders and then combining them to recreate yardage.  I wanted some solid fabric but for some stupid reason, I own almost none.  This patriotic butterfly seemed like a good idea but in the pictures it looks tooooooooo busy.  I think it is good at arm's (lap's) distance though.  It is a gift for my sister.  



September 2009:  Here's the completed jeans rag quilt at a picnic. It is the only one I have made that I would ever put on the ground!!!!

I love the idea of putting Christmas on the back of the wall hanging.  Brilliant!
