    Here are the quilts i have made so far this year. Please be patient as i add in pictures.
    The purple and white fan quilt was made as a QAYG i love this Quilt! This is one i have wanted to make just for me and will not share. I also made matching pillow cases and dresser toppers.

    The lovely basket quilt is one that was rescued from our local thrift store. It is all hand pieced and hand quilted. I did not do this one, Just gave it a place to live.

    the pink and white cherry blossom quilt was for my grandma. the red fishing bear quilt was for grandpa. I also included a picture of my crazy quilt that i started a few weeks ago and am working on.

    There are 3 more that i have but have not taken pictures of yet. they are all 3 oriental/Asian inspired and i will try to get some pictures of those soon.
    I hope you all enjoyed my mini quilt show!

    Wow, those are some beautiful quilts. And the one you rescued from the thrift shop. You are lucky lady to find such a treasure and one very busy lady getting all those others done. I especially love the purple.

    Goodness, you've been busy. They're all great. I can't believe that basket top was in a thrift shop...I'm looking forward to seeing your crazy quilt finished!

    Beautiful quilts....and good save with the Flower Basket. Your production rate is astounding, I haven't finished 1 this year (hangs head in shame). Crazy quilt is looking fantastic. Happy quilting.

    Great quilts all. I love, love, love, the quilted border treatment you gave your purple fan quilt. It is so effective and looks great far away and close up. I didn't realize it was quilting until you posted your c/u but it caught my eye right away and I wondered how you had done the border. Thanks so much for sharing all those great pics.

    Thank you all! the purple one was my first attempt at anything other than stitch in the ditch. I just Jumped in and even though it is far from perfect I really loved how it turned out!
    Feline fanatic- Thank you! i had the white border and it really needed something in it and i decided on the ribbon look. I marked it then sewed the ribbon design then went back and stippled inside the solid lines. on the corners where they line up i hand stitched bows on them and really loved how they added to it.
    I am glad i experimented with the heavy quilting but i was really surprised by how much thread it used! I did learn a lot from this quilt as it was very experimental for me. I was way out of my comfort range but am happy with the results.
    On the basket quilt I haven't been able to get an exact time line. the best i can figure by the fabrics is from the late 1950's. It is certainly loved my 10 year old daughter loved it instantly.I had it out to try and date it and i'd turn to look at it and she had taken it and curled up on the couch (several times).
