Halloween Pillowcases

Pillowcases are a lot of fun to make. Each pillowcase takes 3/4 yard of the main fabric, 1/4 yard of another fabric and 2" as an accent fabric. I use a Youtube tutorial by Crafty Gemini to make them.

Another I Spy


Another I Spy Quilt or as I like to call it "Match" quilt.  Everyone really seems to like this type of quilt. This one's squares are only 4 inches whereas an earlier one I used 6-inch squares. I made this one much larger than the previous one, also.  There are 2 squares that don't have matches, can you find them?

Travel Art Folio



Travel Art Folio ...a good place for a young child to keep colored pencils, scissors, glue stick, colors, paper  to bring along while traveling or while watching sports events.

Splendid Sampler

My version of the Splendid Sampler took over a year to complete. I received 2 Free patterns for 6 1/2" blocks 2 times a week for a year. I didn't use all the patterns but added some  hand and machine embroidery and other pieced blocks.
I had collected purple and green fabrics for a few years and finally used some of them. I will wait a little while before I make another purple and green quilt.
I entered this in our local county fair and was pleased to receive not only a blue ribbon but an Award of Merit (yellow ribbon).

White Mystery




This is a Mystery Quilt. It has 14 open blocks along the outside of the quilt. I had not done  hand quilting before and realized this was the perfect project to try it. I found hand quilting very relaxing.

Ohio Star versions

I am continuing my Ohio Star version quilt. This is not the layout but it does show a number of the different variations. I will put a sashing in between the blocks. I will continue getting new variations until December.

Memory Quilt

Memory quilt I recently finished with my Dad's shirts.
My mom cut them into squares after he died (July 2006) and gave 
them to me a few years ago.
He certainly liked blue.
Happy Father's Day, Dad!
