Hope you enjoy seeing these as much as enjoyed making them. I love this site and can't wait each day to see all the lovely quilts everyone is making.
The sampler quilt in photo 1 was quilted with my embroidery machine (hooped many, many times). I didn't have enough of any one fabric for the outer forder, so I pieced the border out of all the colors and tried to make it look like the border pieces went behind the fabric and out the other side.
The spiral table runner in photo 2 has only 5 colors because I made one from memory after seeing one in a quilt shop. Had no pattern so did a lot of trial and error (and ripping out) to get it to look similar to what I remembered. Then the 3rd photo shows the placemats I made to match. Gave them to my sister for Christmas. She gets something quilted from me every year.
The drunkard's path on photo 2 was made by appliquing circles onto squares with the circle attachment on my sewing machine then the squares were cut into 4 pieces to make the drunkard path pieces. Then they were all resewed to together randomly so that there was not one complete circle, just half and 3/4 circles. It was quilted with circles using all the fancy stitches on my machine.
