Candy's Quilt

This is the dog-themed quilt I made for my friend Candy who has owned several dogs over the many years I have known her. She has owned schnauzers for the past 10 years or so, and this quilt was made in honor of Niche, Tove, and her current dog, Pepper.

Zoe's Trunk Block Club

Here's the first quilt I won from the Block Club at Zoe's Quilting. I really loved this one--bright and batiks! I quilted each block separately, as well as the sashing and each border with it's own design. So much fun.

The turquoise and yellow block in the upper middle is unique as it has a gecko quilted on the square.

My Patriotic Star Quilt

This quilt is one that I love. I made it a year ago last fall and enjoyed quilting it so much. It was my first attempt at quilting using the point to point feature on my Statler, and I think it turned out very well.

Here you can see a little more detail. It's a Buggy Barn pattern, and I love it!

My first "Real" Quilt

This quilt was made up in Midway at our house the first time we all stayed there in the summer of 2006 (I think). I found the pattern in a American Patchwork and Quilting magazine, the [ ] edition. I loved the pattern, and I love this quilt!

These beautiful photographs were taken by my daughter, Stephanie Ortega. To see her photography, go to her blog at

Flag Quilt.

I love this flag quilt. I got the quilt kit in Utah at the store near the Orem EXIT Realty office where Blaine is the broker. It hangs in the family room and really lights up the room.

These Wizard of Oz quilts were made for Girls Camp 2008.

Margaret was the assistant youth camp leader and had a great time--she was Toto, too!
