    Too cute and funny.

    My avatar is not a quilt. It is a stainless steel llama made by the son of the owner of the llama farm on Hiway 22 between Buffalo and Muscatine, Iowa. The son wanted to make something very unique and next time I travel up there, will get a better close-up. He welded single 'leaves' into layers to make the outside look like llama fur. People stop all the time to take pics of it, and I did, too. It is interesting and unique.

    Mine is a quilt that is a border exchange done with my center and borders from Canada, England, Germany and So. Africa. Every quilt in the group was stunning.

    Mim -- I am almost finished hand quilting it now

    Like Maryb119, mine is also this years IRR centre. Mine has 4 rounds now,and only 1 more to go.Funnily enough, I worked on one of Mary's borders, and she has just finished the 4th border on mine.
    And yes you're right, there are a lot of great quilts out there made by some very talented people. If you haven't already, you need to go look at the thread for the monthly block swap.They're amazing.

    Mine is too. and my helper holding it to the floor is Lexi, my son's "Rotten"weiler. After all of her help, I now try and sandwich my quilts on the bed which is not easier to do...

    Happy Quilting,
    Susan

    Mine is too. It is a combination of pieced pinwheels and embroidered pinwheels. The pattern was from the "Quilt Life" magazine last year & they provided the embroidery design free online.

    Mine is a quilt I would like to make . . . if I could ever find a pattern or get up the courage to do something myself. I love birds, especially when they are this beautiul. I have the fabric!

    Mine is a quilt made for my Grandson's wife's bridal shower. I love black and white quilts and scrappy is my thing. I always say that the more different fabrics I can use the happier I am.
