    Those are really pretty quilts. I especially like the first one. It is really kind of you to make these quilts for charity. I'm sure that they will really appreciate them a lot.

    Holy cow! These cuold have been right along those I saw at a fancy quilt show yesterday!! I'd love to see a close up of the middle one. How are those squares done?

    I'm glad looking at yours doesn't mean we have to try them!! :lol:

    Thanks for sharing!

    I love the stack and whack quilt. I just bought a book "One Block Wonders" that shows how to do something similar. It takes such a big chunk of fabric to pull it off, that I have only one piece of fabric in my stash that will work! I hope mine turn out as beautiful as yours.

    What a nice representation of your work!!!

    My favorite is the baskets. Is that your own design or is it from a book. Its very pretty and all your quilts are nicely done :D

    HI MISSTREATED. i have that book and it's the same process - stack wack. i made a couple tops but have yet to quilt them. i'm keeping those so that's why they aren't done yet! :lol: (so what does lol stand for? it just appeared on my note and i see it on others too????)

    anyway you will love that process. it's very artistic looking. and it's like christmas seeing how the fabric is transformed.

    hi ruth. the basket one is my own design. i didn't want too small a piece to cut so i just made fabric out of strips, then cut the baskets. the fabric has printed butterflies so that suggested the appliques. also butterflies are a symbol of the resurrection so it was appropriate for Hospice patients.

    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone....NOT your housework!
