    Hey!! Ok... here's another round of pictures!

    This was my first try at making a blankie-type quilt. I made it for a little girl that my son went to daycare with for her 2nd birthday. The fabrics were a mix of terry and cotton and it was SO snuggly!! I made the little matching dolly blankie quilt too that's in the pic.

    [img]http://inlinethumb48.webshots.com/40...600x600Q85.jpg[/img]

    I made this for my mother-in-law as a housewarming gift when they built and moved into their new home. It matches their paint in the downstairs of the house. It's a Rail Fence pattern... very simple and quick to piece.

    [img]http://inlinethumb46.webshots.com/16...600x600Q85.jpg[/img]

    I participated in a Row Robin. My row is the 2nd one in from the right. THAT was the hardest thing I'd done to that point... it was supposed to be paper pieced, but I couldn't figure out how to do that, so I just cut the fabric and sewed it together like normal. I think it looks pretty ok for not doing it w/ the paper pieces. LOL That one is still just a quilt top too, no actual quilting done

    [img]http://inlinethumb10.webshots.com/26...600x600Q85.jpg[/img]

    THEN I decided I was going to host my OWN swap. So I ran a Friendship Star block swap. This picture shows 31 of the star blocks I'd recieved by that time. In the end, I have a whopping total of 91 of them!!!!!! Way plenty to put together a king size quilt. Every one of those stars has writing on them: the person's name who made it, the year, the city & state where she lives, and something else I can't remember. LOL

    [img]http://inlinethumb40.webshots.com/41...600x600Q85.jpg[/img]

    This was back when I first started learning to piece. These are just pieced rows... I never did anything else with them. I don't like the fabrics AT ALL.

    [img]http://inlinethumb43.webshots.com/41...600x600Q85.jpg[/img]

    This is for me and my couch!!! It's a huge 100% cotton flannel (THICK flannel, too!)... I think I'm done with the blocks... I will just add borders now.

    [img]http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b1...CouchThrow.jpg[/img]

    This is one of those art quilts.... I bought the pattern at a quilt show with the intention of making it for my daughter. She was... like... 7 or 8 at the time? Now she's 14 and probably won't want it anymore. LMAO The picture of the pattern has glare, but I wanted you to see what MINE is supposed to end up looking like:

    [img]http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b1...hinPattern.jpg[/img]

    And here's what I've got so far. All 5 rows of the log cabin blocks and the 2 dolphins. All that's left, really, is the blue background and the two-tone blue pieced border.

    [img]http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b1...um/Dolphin.jpg[/img]

    At one point I thought I was going to do a Jewels quilt. LOL

    [img]http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b1...bum/Jewels.jpg[/img]

    And 8 Monkey Wrench blocks

    [img]http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b1...nkeyWrench.jpg[/img]

    A Nine Patch Chain baby girl quilt top. The pink fabric is Peter Cotton Tail.

    [img]http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b1...PatchChain.jpg[/img]

    I just LOOOOVE these little Nine Patch Heart blocks!!! I'd love to do a whole quilt with them. I was all set to host a swap for these... but something kept me from doing it. Pretty sure I was burned out by that huge Friendship Star swap I did.

    [img]http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b1...PatchHeart.jpg[/img]

    I made easy Nine Patch placemats for our family

    [img]http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b1...hplacemats.jpg[/img]

    And I have hundreds of these Nine Patch blocks from a monthly swap I did. Each month you had to do a different color. Like January could be blues, and February was reds, etc etc. I did most of the months and have oodles of these patches as a result. LOL!!!!!!

    [img]http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b1...inePatches.jpg[/img]

    These sit with me here on my couch... This one is a Shaggy... made from homespun cottons... and the interior layer is a thick cream colored cotton flannel.

    The pillow is made exactly like the quilt, only with smaller squares. :D

    [img]http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b1...bum/Shaggy.jpg[/img]

    The story on this one..... My daughter (who's 14) wanted a black comforter and hot pink sheets for her bed. I recently saw a quilt in a magazine that's black and white with a hint of a different color in it (in the magazine it's yellow, I made it hot pink for this quilt). My DD is also a wannabe fashion designer who LOVES the show Project Runway. I just happened to find the new line of fabrics FROM the show Project Runway, and most of them are black and white!!! It was totally perfect. You can't see the individual designs on the fabrics in this picture, but later I'll take a closerup picture. Super cute and perfect for this purpose.

    [img]http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b1...unwayQuilt.jpg[/img]

    This is a Full/Queen size... or will be when I'm done with it. :D

    Thank you everyone!! I finished my first quilt in 2001 (I think)... and then took a nearly 3 year break from late 2005 to mid-2008.

    They're mostly either UFOs or crib size! So not THAT much.

    I just now finished putting the last border on my daughter's black/white/pink "Project Runway" quilt, tho!! I need to find an affordable long-armer... my next project! hehe :)

    Welcome to a great group of sewers… sharing their work keeps me motivated to do better.
    I don’t know why you are not making full or queen quilts and the ones you have made are wonderful. I have been making quilt tops for four years and you have me surpassed on the variety you have done..
    Such neat work....love the baby quilts.

    That friendship star that you used for a swap (with friends names, etc) is beautiful. It would be so good to use up scraps. I like that pattern! Thank you for posting so many great looking projects.

    Sure!! I still have my organizational information for when I ran the swap for the Friendship Stars... if you ever want the block size and info. :D

    Never too many pictures of quilts. Good job! I liked them all. I love looking at everybody's quilts. I am so envious. I just made my first quilt for my baby sister. I made it purple, the Log Cabin pattern. My friend from Church said it was very easy, I told her I thought that it looked hard. But once I understood it and once I started sewing it together it was pretty neat. I am going to make another one for my oldest sister. I can't take for one and not for the other sister when I go back home. I don't know how to put pictures on here yet. When I learn how I will share with everyone. Thx.

    I DO need to finish that Bargello!! I need to create some exciting borders to make that one bigger.

    Sara, thank you! I'm signed up and ready for the blue & white star swap!! I have bought my fabric already, too! Which stars did you like? The black and jewel tones?

    I really like the red/black jewel tones. But my VERY fav is the row exchange, second from the right. What a cool block!! What pattern did you use for it? I have scrolled through your pix several times and love your work.
