    I don't do big quilts anymore but I can share some of what I have done and some of my ongoing quilts to be finished whenever I have the time(haha)

    I lied I had to include a few of my stuff I made 20 years ago. They are sadly in bad shape now. Clutch purse

    This a leftover piece of a billfold I made years ago. The blocks are 1/8" finished. I made this 100" by hand sewing. This piece I decided I didn't need for the billfold.

    This is a bifold billfold I used for quite awhile. It shows how worn it is. It is about 6" square all done by hand several years ago

    This quilt was supposed to be my 10 year old grandson Jake's baby blanket and it is still only a top. But I showed it to him does that count?

    Rhonda, I find miniature work fascinating, although I could not do it! The dimensions of those billfolds make me feel faint!

    Those were done several years back!! I don't do the hand sewing like that anymore more because I don't have the time than that I can't do it. I take an order of my stuff up to Kalona every two to three weeks so it keeps me pretty busy.

    Beautiful work! :lol: Just lovely piecing. Will have to make a point of looking for your stuff at Kolona. Have planned to go there for several years, and never have arrived, yet! :?

    The thing I tell people who say they could never do what I do is that if you knew the tricks of the trade and can handle a 1 1/2" square you can do most of what I do. Most of my checkbooks use a 1 1/4" square but it is also what you get used to too. Atttention to accuracy makes a big differance.

    All the flooding and the recession hit Kalona's shops pretty hard last summer. I hope they have a better summer this year!!!
