    Recent projects

    I've been working on finishing up a few UFOs (first two photos). I also made a cute little butterfly lap quilt with some friends for a very dear girlfriend who has cancer, and finally a teddy bear quilt for my newest great, great niece! Sorry there are so many photos, but wanted to show the details on a couple of them. Enjoy!

    Wow I love them all! I especially love the butterfly quilt. The colors are beautiful, but the thought and time you put into making it for your friend is priceless! I pray that she is better soon. Kathy

    Your quilts are wonderful! Your quilting is super. I sure hope you have a long arm machine because my FMQ will never look that good on my domestic sewing machine. Teddy is adorable is it embroidered?

    All of them are superb!! Such great fabric combinations. I always keep thinking of how far we've come from our grandmothers' feed sacks! Isn't it so gratifying to work on something so beautiful!

    I should have mentioned that the only one I quilted was the teddy bear quilt. The others were sent out for quilting.

    Yes - the teddy bears are hand embroidered.

    Thank you - she is a precious friend and her prognosis is not good. She will get to enjoy the love and prayers that went into making this, and I think some day it will also be a beautiful baby quilt for a future granddaughter.

    I love them all too. The quilting on the first one is exquisite, the teddy bear one is adorable, and the butterfly one is awesome.

    Your friend will be so touched when she gets the butterfly quilt, that is so dear of you to make that. Would you be so kind as to share where we could find the butterfly quilt pattern.

    Thank you - I took the Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day Lone Star class. I was fairly new to quilting at that time, but always loved the way this one turned out. The quilting just made it come alive.

    What I love so much about quilters is how they are such encouraging people. Thank you all for your kind comments!
