Pat's Child Artwork Quilt


How sweet is this??  Pat made this adorable quilt with printed photos on fabric of her granddaughter's artwork. 


I filled in the orange background with flowers and swirls and leaves and whatnot.


I outlined SID each picture and quilted around each drawing and filled backgrounds in where it needed a bit more quilting.


I think the penguin is my favorite :)  Such a neat idea to showcase a child's favorite artwork! 
 Thanks Pat!

DGS September blocks, Heart Twister


These are the blocks I had my Haven Circle make for September's quilt. I saw a quilt in a blog post that I just loved and thought it would be a fun and simple one to duplicate.  We used 5 inch squares to make HST units and arranged them into diamond shapes using orange, turquoise, pink, dark yellow and light green along with colorful light fabrics.  Stay tuned for the finished quilt!


Peg made yet another Heart Twister wallhanging. 


She wanted it quilted just like the other 3 or 4 she has made already.  I think I'm getting the hang of this one now! 


A large feather in the reds with a large heart with curls inside for the pink center.


Little curls with hearts for the filler.


See what I'm talkin' bout?  The backside.  

Thanks Peg! Keep the twisters coming ;)

Becki's charm squares quilt


Becki made this sweet quilt using 5 inch charm packs plus a few more fabrics from her stash. 


Love that heathery gray background. 


I quilted a paisley design along with a few paisley feathered swirls in between.


I really like this quilt pattern and how it turned out.


Thanks Becki (aka my Mom :D )

Carol's Plus sign quilt


Carol made this amazing 'Plus sign' quilt out of scraps. Don't ask me how she kept all the little pieces organized when making it!


I put feathered swirls in the red border and more feathered swirls all over in the center.





Lots of scrappy goodness!



The back.

Thanks Carol!

Peggy's charm square quilt


Peggy-a beginner quilter- made this vibrant quilt.



Feathered swirls in the colored squares, loops in the white setting triangles, large bubbles in the narrow white border and more feathered swirls in the pieced colored border.




What a fun quilt!



A peek at her pieced scrappy back. Thanks Peggy!

Bee Hexagon quilt


Teresa made this hexagon quilt using a bee themed fabric line.


I did some ruler work in the setting triangles to accent the stars. 


For the hexagons, I just outlined a quarter inch around the inside and filled in with swirls to keep it simple and let the fabrics shine.



Thanks Teresa for another fun one!

About Trout


Shelia made this About Trout quilt pattern. This is the second time I've quilted this pattern. Teresa made the first. 


She wanted it quilted similarly to the last one, except hers has a border with dimensional fishing lures.  I quilted straight back and forth lines around them.



Large swirls and pebbles around the trout.



Each fish is quilted a bit differently than the rest using color coordinating threads.






A peek at the back perhaps shows the borders a bit better.





Thanks Shelia! I enjoyed this one probably more than the first since I already knew what I was doing this time around.  It went much faster!  Someone can send another About Trout my way any old time. :)

Rita's log cabin



Rita made this lovely brown and cream log cabin quilt using light yellow centers. 


Longarm feathers in the dark brown border, feathered curls in the small light brown border, and a small feather in the little cream border.



For the blocks- in lightning streak arrangement- I did a feather in the cream, and curls and shells in the brown.  I c2c'd the yellow center squares. 






Thanks Rita! I think it turned out very well!
