    I am new on here and thought I would post a few pictures of quilts I have made.

    I made this one as a birthday gift for a friend. I did lots of embellishing on here with beads and sparklies. I even used teal sequins! (And now I want one for myself.)

    This quilt was made for my SIL for her wedding. The center block is the front of her invitation, which I had machine embroidered locally. The wedding was green and purple so I used those colors for the quilt.

    This one I made for myself! I found the pattern in a book I got at the library and modified it to look like this. The kids are not allowed NEAR it.

    Thank you so much everyone! Wow! I had no idea I would get SO many compliments! I love it here! (My head is floating above my body like a balloon right now.)
    I am leaving this afternoon to visit my mom and am hoping to put the squares together for the cherry quilt I have been working on forEVER. (I used the applique for my avatar.) I am really proud of this one, and I am considering hand quilting it. I will definitely post some pictures when I get back.
    Are we allowed to post links on here? I have the cherry squares all uploaded to my Flickr account and will post the link if we are allowed.

    Hi Lisa,
    Welcome to the quilting bpard. Those are very very nice quilts you have made there.! I just couldn't pick a favorite if I tried. The cherry one looks like it is going to be very sweet too. Are you in a quilting group in michigan?

    No, I am not in a guild, although there is one in my town. I was working nights and having kids for the past few years and did not have time for it. I am thinking about joining now, though.

    My mom, sister, aunt and cousins all quilt on some level, though, so I have grown up around it and I have them for "company". I also have lured one of my friends over to the "dark side" and she has even started a stash already! She made her first quilt this fall and did a great job.

    Lisa, Your quilts are all three lovely. I would have kept that center one for myself also! Beautiful. Thank you for sharing. By all means post your Flickr link. We'll be looking forward to more pictures.

    Beautiful Quilts - glad you kept the one that you did (the appliqued one)

    You have done a wonderful job on all three, and the cherries are

    looking good!

    Thank you all so much. Here is my Flickr link. I have all the individual blocks for the cherry quilt posted on there.
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/gitdownkitty/

    I am headed "home" for the weekend and my one goal is to get the cherry quilt put together. I always like to lay out my quilts at my mom's house because she has a loft overlooking her living room. So we can lay out a quilt on the floor, then go upstairs and see it from above. It really lets you see if you have any "messups". If I have to do it at home, I take a picture and then look at the picture, but it's more fun at Mom's house! :P

    I wasn't sure on the policy with links and such. I also have a quilting blog through which I have met some awesome people. I think if you click on my profile the link should show up. I list the blogs that I regularly read on the side and some of them are SO cool! I have met some awesome new quilter friends that way and gotten some GREAT inspiration. There are some unbelievable quilts on the internet that I would never have seen otherwise.
