    I joined this board months ago and keep looking in on everyone's work but hadn't figured out how to post photos. So I am finally trying to do that and I hope it works. I have been quilting for four years now and love love it. Following are some photos of two of my quilts. The Blue and White one is my most recent and is an Evelyn Sloppy pattern. The other one I did two years ago and hangs on my wall in the lounge.

    This quilt is from The Quiltmakers Gift" and I did a different boarder and it was my second time doing free motion quilting.

    I LOVE the "Quiltmaker's Gift" books!!! I made the Friendship Star" with the scrappy blues in the background from that book. It's the one she's throwing out the window so the kind can't get it! I fell in love with it the second I saw it and KNEW I had to make it. I gave it to my grandmother, and when she died :( I got it back. It hangs on the back of the chair to my sewing machine to she's near me when I'm quilting.

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful quilts. :D

    Wow - thanks for your comments. I also have made the friendship star quilt from the Quiltmakers Gift as I loved it. It was a the second quilt I ever did. I would love to see a picture of your one Karla. I am in between quilts as I have some other 'work' to do but I am planning a paisley blended pastel quilt my daughter would like. I prefer scarp quilts usually. Thanks again for your positive feedback.

    Both are beautiful. And WOW!!! The free motion looks like you have been doing it a while. Maybe there is hope for me doing free motion. I hope my second try at it looks half as good at yours.

    Maria--here's the Friendship Star from "The Quiltmaker's Gift." I found the pattern somewhere and just copied her colors. They are so me. :D When one of my students gave me a gift card to Border's Books, I bought the quilt book that goes with the book. I haven't made anything out of it YET. :D I think it's 412th on my list. :roll:

    I machine quilted around the the stars, and hand quilted a heart for Gram between stars. She loved flowers.

    All of them are really impressive! The blue one had the "wow" factor for me. Never stop quilting.

    Marie, what talent you have. Great color choices and beautiful quilts. Did you do the machine quilting yourself...if so "great job".

    Thanks for the pic of your frindship star. Nice job and of course I happen to like pink and blue too. I will get a photo of my one to show you soon. I did a machine quilting class a few months after I first learnt to quilt and it was the best thing I ever did as I can't afford to get it done professionally so it was do a class or never have a quilt finished. It was really inspiring and I recommend it to anyone. I was my most adventurous with the pink and blue quilt as I had not long done the class and I think it is probably the best I have done since as well. I need another shove to be more daring again.
