    I don't usually like "flower basket" quilts, but yours with the 3-D applique flowers is wonderful.

    I love snowflaky designs so this one is special. It's 8 point instead of 6 so I know it's a star, not a snowflake, but the effect is there. Love the blue batik background, too.

    Love the kitties. The baby quilt is cute, too, but the kitties are darling.

    This is the most involved quilt I have ever made. I designed all the fruit and veggies myself.
    This quilt is machine pieced, needle turned applique, hand embroidered, and hand quilted. It took me about 6 months and it is only a lap size quilt. I gave it to my DMIL for Christmas. She is a dear sweet lady and is not in the best of health right now.

    I don't know if others would call these stunning, however, these are the most time consumming quilts I have made. The first one was for my daughter, Celeste

    The picture was taken before the binding was done.

    The first one was an applique and took about 50 hours.

    The second one has approximately 3,000 pieces as each square is about 4" x 4" and there are almost 600 squares. The most difficult part of the second quilt was the placement of the squares. This one took about 75 hours and was completed about 1 month before my accident that took me out of quilting for about 6 months. Both were labors of love.

    I can see I'll have to add another subscription to my list. This is one thread I want to follow. Yes, the word is stunning! Each and every one of them!

    This is not a quilt for the beginner. I consider myself an intermediate quilter. Some of these curves can be tricky to get just right, at least for me!
    Why did you say you would not use the Eleanor Burns method again? I have her book on it, have not done it yet, so I am curious about why not?

    Wow! These are some spectacular quilts. Not sure mine belong in this category, but I will share anyway. (My absolute favorite is one I no longer own and cannot seem to find a photo, though I'm sure we took some. Sadly, this is true of most of the quilts I have made.)

    Here is my first ever art quilt, made for the Easter celebration at our church last year. It is not pieced, it's a fabric mosaic which contains over 10,000 pieces of fabric, all less than 1" square, and many less than 1/2", a backing and a fill layer. I attached the pieces one at a time to a white flannel sheet using a glue stick, spray based the whole mess to the backing, then stitched it in place with a random stipple over the entire surface to give it texture. I ironed a layer of heavy craft stabilizer to the back to stiffen it. The outer edge is bound by hand with a buttonhole stitch. It measures 53" by 89". The deadline was tight, I spent five straight weeks standing in front of the design wall when I was not at work, and I had a full time job then. Needless to say I didn't get much sleep that month! I took almost a week quilting it and probably spent a week sleeping after I submitted it. This quilt is going to hang in my new sewing room.

    "Piecin' a quilt's like livin' a life...The Lord sends us the pieces, but we can cut 'em out and put 'em together pretty much to suit ourselves, and there's a heap more in the cuttin' and the sewin' than there is in the caliker...I've had a heap of comfort all my life making quilts, and now in my old age I wouldn't take a fortune for them." (Eliza Calvert Hall, Aunt Jane of Kentucky)
