Steph's Quilt

My daughter, Steph, made the cutest baby quilt @ a year ago, and I just helped her finish it by hand sewing the binding. She asked me to do it a couple of months ago and I totally forgot until New Year's Eve. 

She appliqued 3 little ducks onto her quilt from an applique pattern I had to make a quilt for my oldest sonwhen he was little. That never happened.  She used it to applique 3 cute ducks which she individualized by giving them each a different hat. The original had a sailor hat.

SUGAR Conference 2012

I had a great time in Columbia MO this past week at the SUGAR Convention--I bought lots of patterns for my Statler Stitcher, fabric, and other tools, plus I took some really great classes.

Christmas Quilting 2010

This Christmas my daughters and I got together and made a quilt for a friend of ours who is far from her family this Christmas. She and her daughter live nearby, and we thought she might like this fun, disappearing nine patch quilt!

Jessica's Birthday Quilt

Jessica's birthday quilt is finally done. We are repossessing the one I originally gave her that she didn't love, with one that she does love! This was an intense quilt for me, and took a huge effort for me to finish it before I went to visit in March.

Green Quilt for Margaret

Margaret's quilt was made with material that I had in my stash. Margaret took hours putting the right greens, whites and blacks together so that no block is exactly like another! Amazing. Happy Birthday to Margaret for July 2009! It took us a while to get it done.

Darryl's Patriotic Birthday Quilt

Darryl loves our country, and loves patriotic themes, so I designed this quilt using the star from one of the Buggy Barn quilt books.

I wanted to incorporate the red, white and blue from our country's flag.

The backing for the quilt reflects the blue and white star theme.

Little Aliens

This is the first quilt that I made to be quilted on my new Statler Stitcher. I made these twin quilts for Jonas' bunk beds, using the Turning Twenty pattern.

I designed and quilted two of the panels, one with a space shuttle . . .

and the other with three comic aliens.

You can see the fun quilt designs even better on the back of the quilt.

Jonas loves outer space, and these quilts gave him just the right touch in his room.
