Some of the pictures were a little crappy because I had to scan them in. I hope they meet with the high quality work I've seen here by all you wonderful quilters. :mrgreen:

Ha! I'm just an amateur, so I think your post should say "meets or exceeds"...your work is some of best I've seen!
Also, weren't Siberian Huskies just domesticated wolves? High wolf content (HAHAHA) anyway.

and... I love the line in your sig...SO TRUE!

Thanks for sharing these wonderful beauties!

Beautiful, all of them. I have never made a syorm at sea, but your fabric choices were the best! Another entry on the long, long, long someday list.

Thanks everyone. And yes, I do have a lot of hours into each. As for the wolf, here are a few of the closer -ups. I just loved the wolves running all around the edge.

I had the Storm at Sea on the quilt rack during one of our sons grad parties. Everyone came in to see it & thought it was moving. They also thought it was curved, but it's just an illusion. They're all straight lines. I think that's one of the things that attracted me to that pattern. Now my daughter wants one like it. She says she's outgrown the "little girl" flowers. :D

Great job on all of the quilts and thanks for sharing. I really like the storm at sea. I think that I'm going to have to find that pattern and do one of those. Keep up the great work.

Oh goodie, more of your gorgeous quilts to view! I like them all so much I can't pick a favorite, although that storm at sea takes my breath away. I love the colors! I'm working on a mini-storm at sea in similar colors and it's a pain. Such little pieces to paper-piece. I many never finish it. :)

Keep em coming. I'm enjoying your work. :)
