I just quilted with simple straight lines and used fleece for the backing and no batting. It is soft and cozy. The second one is from a previous post, paper pieced friendship stars, finally quilted and bound.

    I just need to find the perfect border fabric now...I had a deadline to get this far as this Sunday...whew...made it. We're heading west to Alaska on a road trip Monday morning and I'm taking this with me...it'll be my excuse to stop at "several" quilt shops along the way. (Palmer, Anchorage, Fairbanks)

    The pattern is called Counterpoint and it's by Mountain Peek Creations.

  6. My Marimekko scrap quilt

Then you just rotate them to get the desired effect. The borders were also 3.5" wide. The king size quilt was 106" x 117", 9 blocks by 10 blocks. Thanks for your kind comments.Name:  Marimekko quilt 2.jpg

I had those ugly 1970 lamimate cabinets, old appliances, laminate countertops...well my redo was awesome, painted the cabinets white with special cabinet paint, sprayed my countertops and then coated them with clear poyurathine (how ever that is spelled) put on knobs and lasted 4 years and even would be longer, but we saved, and saved and decided to

    If you look closely, there are little "Day of the Dead" skulls on some of the black and white print. Lily's parents are amazing in SO many ways, but rather than go on and on, I will just tell

  10. Quasi-Crazy Quilt from Vintage Scraps and Embroidery

    This quilt will be donated to the Red Willow Bible Camp quilt auction fundraiser.
