|Several weeks before Christmas 2000, Steven said he wanted a quilt for Christmas! The quilt to the lower left is that quickly made quilt (it included "space" fabric, as requested by Steven.
The quilt to the lower right is one I made for Andrea, the lighter fabric has bunnies on it! That bunny fabric was bought at Andrea's first quilt show here in Charlotte. I hand quilted hears and squiggles on this quilt, which I finished in Dec 2000.
|Belowis my first paper piecing project. Fun! I gave the quilt (which is doll sized) to Andrea for Easter 2001. Walmart has great prices on these beginner projects (and they come with complete instructions!).|
|Having seen both his brother and sister receive new quilts in December, Chris asked for a new quilt! Below is the quilt that he chose - he picked out the Log Cabin design, and went with me (under protest LOL) to the fabric store to select the fabrics. He's a great bolt carrier! This quilt was started and completed in January 2001.|
|The first three pictures are of what I call my Quilt of Ties. In trying to decide on a gift to give to my mother, who is in a nursing home following a stroke, I remembered her giving me my fathers ties when he passed away, in October of 1992. I made this quilt for her, and now he can keep her warm again, as he once did. I completed this quilt in Debember 2001.|
|To the right is a center quilt block that I made for a Round Robin quilt group that I belong to.
I paper-pieced it from a Wonderful pattern (it's called Yuletide Wishes) I found on this web site:
