    Mine was used with permission by the artist, Synthia St. James. It was on a graduation card I received when I earned my masters degree in social work. I made it into a quilt for tha Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. It earned $79 and some change. The earrings on the dancing ladies are 3D, made from jewelry jump chains. It's one of my favorites.

    Mine is just a simple fusible applique which I made for a charity auction.

    Mine is Missouri Puzzle that is set a bit different than the original pattern. It was hand pieced and hand quilted by my Grandmother (Grannie - Maude Woffard) and I think maybe her Mother (Sue Parsons). It was created in the 1930-40's. The pattern dates back to the mid 1800's and they probably got the pattern out of the Kansas City Star or Workbasket magazine or Harpers Weekly. It is one of just a few of our quilts that is all done is one color scheme. Most are scrappy quilts.

    My Avatar is my Cat Misty and she is my quilting buddy. She is either on my lap or sitting on what I am making, she thinks she needs to hold my fabric from sliding off the table. She is a strange fun kitty that thinks she is a human and sometimes she will take of with my scraps! It's funny because she is more like a dog running off with a bone. She keeps her little fabric stash under my bed and she sleeps on it during the day.

    Wow, I love your design. When I was just starting quilting I thought log cabins would get boring. Now I know better.

This was a scrap quilt I used all my favorite colors chocolate brown with pinks reds blues etc. I finished it in 2 days because of the momentum I had with it. It is 90x100 right now.

    My avatar quilt is called "Log cabin Star". I made it from a jelly roll. I added to overall length of the quilt by adding a scrappy border on the bottom and top of scraps from the same quilt.

    Mine is a quilt I made for my oldest son when he became an American citizen. His wife shows it to everyone who comes to visit. Not fancy but it means a lot to our family.

    This is a wallhanging in Hawaiian Applique called "You Are In Our Hearts." It is needle-turn applique and is all done by hand (except for attaching the binding).

    Mine is a doll quilt made for my only grandchild for Christmas. It has a solid strip on the side and the flowered portion is machine quilted in the pattern of a smiley sun face with rays beaming from it. Design is my own. Not real fancy like most here, but a good beginner project.

    Mine is Cathedral Windows done by hand for no other reason than that I am not good at machine piecing (getting better). Background is what I call calico. some places call it muslin. The windows are made from scraps. My uncle is now the proud owner.

    wow...I love looking at all the avatars...what creative bunch you are!!!
    Mine is not somethinhg I did...but a tribute...back in 1970, when I found myself bored of doing embroidery work on pillowcases...I saw this article in a McCalls magazine of this beautiful quilt with another page of stitches...and the light bulb went on!!! And it's still blazing...I can use all those embroidery stitches in crazy quilting! I was hooked...but it wasn't until 1999 that the seed blossomed and I started my stitching journey...so my avatar is a tribute to what got me started!

    How nice of you to ask this question. I am enjoying the many responses. My avatar is a called "Rock'in Baby". It is a disappearing nine patch created for a little nephew that with a rock-n-roll nursery. Modern baby, modern christian rock musician parents who wanted a black, white and red theme. Their wish was my ... opportunity to try something new! Rock on Baby!

    My avatar is the MardiStar block from Quilter's Cache. Their directions are lousy but as you can see I muddled through.

    If anyone's going to try this themselves, I'd recommend (1) printing a full block template and "color it in" with fabric swaps to see how all the colors work together - this certainly kept my head and piecing straight!; and,
    (2) stitching the center star seams first with thread color to match the star color to where the color meets the background; then, after backstitching, change thread color to match the background fabric. This way, when you open up the block to press, all thread "disappears" from the center because it matches.

    My Avatar is called ULS2 and is a pattern by Karen Stone. I fell in love with this pattern when a very good friend of mine had started one in Aqua's and Rust browns. I had never paperpieced before and she insisted I could do it. I went home and showed a picture to my hubby and he loved it too. He said make sure you do yours with blues, the rest is history. Definetly loved paperpiecing and am so hooked.
