Mema's Circle Lord Baptist Fan Quilt

This traditional quilt was very scrappy and Mema wanted me to do Baptist Fans on it. I used the Circle Lord giant template and they do such a good job. The thread is AE540 Permacore Sunlight on the top and Superio's Bottom Line #609 Dark Blue on the back.

Callie's Poinsettia Lasagna

This flannel Christmas quilt is so festive. I used Perma Core Cranberry on top and Superior So Fine's #413 Scarlet in the bobbin.

Callie wanted a big pattern. The Fun Flower panto which looks like a poinsettia.

Dinosaurs everywhere

Callie made this for her 4 year old grandson who loves dinosaurs. She wanted Royal Blue thread so I used Superior's #432 Your Highnes on the fron and Bottom Line #636 Bright Blue on the back. I used the panto Dino Jungle by Hermione Agee. The Stegosaurus and Triceratops are walking thru a lush jungle.

Callie did not give me enough backing. The fron was only one inch smaller than the back. It was very hard to quilt out to the edge.

Tennessee Waltz

Pat used some beautiful fabric, mostly blues for this Tennessee Waltz quilt for her bed. It is a big one, kingsize. I used Superior's So Fine #432 Your Highness on the front and Superior's Bottom Line #609 Dark Blue in the bobbin.

Mema's Animal Quilt

Mema made this quilt on commission for a new grandfather. I put freemotion loops and hearts. The thread is Signature's Parchment with Superior's 605 Light Pink.

Jenny's Little girl quilts

Jenny made identical quilts for her daughters. These quilts are so sweet. I used the Rosie panto on them to mimic the flowers. And freehand flowers in the borders. The front thread is YLI's Grass variegated thread.

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.
