  2. Mom Deep In Thought

    by , 04-26-2012 at 04:25 PM
    This is a portrait quilt that I made from taking a class but I can't remember the teacher's name at the moment. We used a picture and from that used a process that took seven layers of applique to complete the portrait. I love how it came out and it captures my Mother just as I think of her.

I was able to snap this photo when she ...

Please let me know if you have any questions.

  4. Dumb founded

    by , 04-26-2012 at 03:43 AM
    Went to a small quilt shop by me looking for 108" wide backing. I have a pre-printed queen size quilt top and I was dumb founded to hear the woman helping me ask me ( how long will it take you to run that up on a machine?).
    Maybe I'm old fashioned, but to me you should do these by hand.

    This was fun. If you are thinking of getting the Renae's Rays, get the mini rays first.

    The background of the butterfly is quilted with green thread to make the butterfly show up better.

They were part of a litter of 13 dumped out in a laundry basket when the shelter was closed. I haven't been able to find homes for any of them so I guess they

  9. Bow Tuck with Zipper
