Invaders from Mars

Twins with bunk beds covered by Turning 20 Again quilts all done up in bright colors with space invaders. I used Jodi Beamish's Outerspace panto. It is covered in flying saucers, rockets and men in space suits.
Update (8 Dec)

This is the red twin.

Mema's Tablecloth

This a tableloth done using the Delicious panto by Lisa Thiessen in the body. It has apples and leaves. I put strawberries in the corners of the middle border. I did crosshatching in the corners. I used white Signature thread top and bobbin.

This is the back of the tablecloth.

Here is a close-up of the corner with the crosshatching

Raspberry Pinwheel

This a baby quilt, a very long baby quilt. The quilt was expertly pieced, pressed and trimmed. It was a pleasure to quilt. The back is a print of blueberries. The customer did not want a lot of quilting so I chose a panto by Sharon Spingler named Wandering Daisy. I used King Tut's thread Lapiz Lazuli.
The blue looks good with all those bluberries on the back of the quilt.

This is a close-up of the panto

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
