My grandsons love trains, so I improvised a pattern, and used lots of left overs to make them their "choo choo" quilt. It is hand machined since I knew it was going to go through the ringer. Bright colors to brighten up their day.
This quilt was made for me for my birthday. I do cat fostering, so my friend made me this beautiful cat quilt which features Buster, a black cat, that we fostered and then adopted. A special gift from a special friend.
I made this art quilt of my daughter's garden as a wall piece. Actual pictures of the kids and parents were printed on material and added. I wish I had counted the number of pieces- fence pickets, flowers, stones, etc , as all were individually printed on cloth and sewn to the base. Labor of love.
Detail of garden art quilt I made for my daughter to hang on her wall. I printed the photos of kids and individual flowers and stones on cloth and sewed to base. I hadn't sewn in over 30 years and never did free-motion stitching before, so it is not perfect. And I had to buy a sewing machine!
I don't live in the right zone or have a greenhouse big enough for my very own Amorphophallus titanum, so my wife made me a fabric version for our wall. The background represents glass panes from the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers.
This lovely Catheral Quilt was made by my dear mother several years ago. Great care and detail, along with months worth of work went into making this beautiful quilt.
This is a mini quilt called Home Sweet Home. It measures 11 inches square and the technique I used to make it is called paper piecing.
A Walk In The Woods
This quilt was made by a lady who was a neighbor of my husband's when he was growing up on a farm in Kentucky. Many of the quilt pieces were from her husband's old ties!
