    Wow, you are amazing for only doing this a year and a half!!! I really like your sense of color. And your spiral quilting is so cool. I have not attempted that yet, and I have been quilting a lot longer than you- way to go!!!!

    and even more....

    I made the pinwheel quilt out of fabric from my MIL's mother's stash. She passed away last September (a year ago tomorrow actually) and I mailed it to my MIL before the 4th of July. That was her mom's birthday and I knew that day would be hard and her mom loved Red White and Blue things... so I thought it was a perfect wall hanging quilt to get MIL through. She loved it so much especially because it was all her mom's fabrics!

    aaand even more.

    I love this picnic quilt. I made it for my mom over Memorial Day weekend. We sat in the sewing room all weekend and just chatted and laughed while I sewed this together and she pressed all the seams.

    My mom used to read that book to us "Love You Forever" by Robert Munsch and so I secretly quilted:
    "I'll Love You Forever
    I'll Like You For Always
    As Long As I'm Living,
    My Mommy You'll Be"

    if you can believe it... there's more. I'm starting to feel a little overwhelmed by how many I have completed in a year.

    And now up to my latest quilt... the 1940's reproduction fabric quilt. I meant for this to be a modified coin quilt of sorts.... I really like how it turned out. I hope she likes it :)

    baby quilt I made for DH's cousin's baby.

    Experiment with little things like placemats! You'll gain confidence. Do you have a darning foot?

    I have say, these are beautiful, and help to inspire confidence in myself. I know one was hand quilted...were the rest machine quilted? Were they done on a long arm, or your regular machine?
