    These are 3 more WIP's finished.
    The first is Kansas Autumn for my mom. She has a 100 year old house. Her front door has an oval window that is very drafty so I have been making her quilts to cover the door. She grew up in Kansas, so I put in a sunflower and wheat field. The bottom right block is Turkey Tracks. Eventually I want to have one for each season.
    The next two are a design that I created myself. I needed a quick quilt and decided to make a split rail. It wasn't big enough so I decided to add some plain blocks, that was boring to look at so I did HST's and went from there. I am currently making top #8 and have yet to have 2 alike. There are 2 - 3 points where you can make a design decision to create a different look. They are becoming a series.
    I'll be teaching this for the guild this coming Saturday.
    Thanks for looking.

    I love the split rail fences, especially the layout that you did for your husband's.

    Nice job on your quilts. I'm sure your mom will be thrilled with her new quilt.

    My mom loves her door quilts. She has my sister change them out.
    The third one in the bright colors will be going to my BFF. We've known each other since high school. She has recently had a brain aneurysm and is in a nursing home. She is now in Atlanta near her daughter.
