    I already had a stash established before I started quilting. I used to make dolls and wall hangings for craft fairs and started collecting fabrics before I ever quilted.

    This is my very first quilt. We had an all-night quilt night and there were about 12 of us doing this pattern at the same time. Made in 1999

    More if you don't mind

    I'll share pictures of my queen size quilts sometime later, it's hard to get good help holding quilts for more than a few minutes, they start goofing off too much!!! I tend to make a lot of queen size quilts now. Except for the wedding gifts. Everyone is getting married these days and lap size or so is plenty big!!!

    my first (and only so far) flannel rag quilt.

    Another All-nighter pattern. This picture isn't very good. I love the white daisy fabric in the centers and have tried high & low to find more. I love the colors in this one!!

    Wow! Those are awesome!!!! I just did my first rag quilt today (in fact I'm snipping as I type...I'm multi talented) so I can feel for you with that huge one. That is AWESOME!

    More...... We have a group of ladies at church and we get together almost every month to work on projects. We started out doing all-nighters, I would cross stitch all night and finally in 1999 they convinced me to try my first quilt. We no longer do all-nighters (as of 2007) but each February we all work on the same pattern and in July we do a mystery. Sometimes we will all work on charity quilts or something but most of the time we just bring whatever we want to work on. It is a great time cause everyone helps everyone else with color selections, sewing guidelines, etc. I love quilting with my friends!!

    A wedding gift I finished last night and gave at church this morning. Sorry, somehow it came out very blue!!! DH fooled with the camera last weekend and turned something on. DS's girlfriend fixed it for me, after I gave this quilt away

    Love the quilts. Thanks for sharing. I don't think I could choose a favorite. I have no luck with quilt holders so I lay them out on the bed or floor and consider it good.

    So, more pictures? :D

    I will have more sometime. It is dark out now and if I tried to take pictures of them on the beds, they wouldn't turn out too well. Quilt holders have all left the house for the college group at church that my DH leads.

    They were having too much fun, I was afraid that they would tear the quilt that DD was wrapped up in!! There was a little tickling going on behind the quilts. DD is home from college for the weekend because she has a Dr apt at UCLA tomorrow. She has suffered from headaches for years.
