    I love the sailboat the best, too!!! What is the pattern name for that? Is it available online, or was it in a book?

    The coverlet is so pretty, I'm not sure I would ever use it, though, but all are very, very nice. You do beautiful work.

    I like the way you carried the embroidery out into the borders on the baby quilt. Both quilts are fantastic--great work!

    All three are fantastic-each in its own way. I have done some heirloom sewing and really appreciate your baby coverlet.

    Thank you soooooo much for the wonderful comments. I've been looking at all the pictures and everyone's work is just beautiful. Lots of eye candy and dreaming on my part. I'm usually very quiet regarding all my projects. Most of what I make I give away. The duds are mine, however. Over the past few years I've amassed quite a collection of free embroidery designs. This year I wanted to give credit to the digitizers who generously give away their designs. So, I started a photo album of some of the items I managed to take pictures of before giving away. If you are interested, here is the URL to my album. It has pictures of quilts and other items I've made over the years.

    http://adobe.kodakgallery.com/MyGall...30_46029881813

    Just as I have received inspiration from others, I hope you also find inspriation in my works.

    Most of my baby quilt patterns come from the following two books:
    PS I Love You Baby Collection by Lynda Milligan and Nancy Smith
    Even More Quilts for Baby by Ursula Reikes

    I also find patterns in quilting magazines, embroidery magazines, free patterns from quilting Internet sites......basically, my ideas come from many sources. I am self-taught. My work schedules never coincided with the times many of the clubs or classes met. Eventually, I just gave up trying to connect with others who share my interests.

    All of this is probably more information than what you wanted, but I am enjoying all the postings and hope to be able to contribute more.

    Attached are a few more pictures of a couple quilts I made from the PS I Love You Baby Collection.

    This is a quilt I made for my daughter. It is called Lollipops and Lemondrops. The embroidered designs are from Hooked on Embroidery. I think the business name changed a couple years ago to something else.

    This was my very first quilt. It is called Baby Tears. The embroidered designs are from Elsa Goussard.
