    I would sure like to see a bigger pic of the quilt you have by your name. Great work.

    I hope this is big enough for you. I made it for my son who cannot have a quilt on his bed because of his severe dust mite allergy. He is actually not supposed to even have this on his wall, but it is the lesser of two evils.

    This is a Quadrille Twister, a class taught by Dianne Stevenson.

    Here are a couple of other pictures that I hap posted in my introduction.

    I also just found my camera, so I will be able to take pictures of the projects that I am working on right now. Should I start a new thread for those, or is it better to just add them here?

    When I look at your quilts, I realize that I am a rank amateur. Your classes really paid off because your quilts are gorgeous! :mrgreen:
    Add them here and create a beautiful portfolio.

    I finally found my camera and got it working. So here are some more

    Some kind of downloading error, the second quilt is my dd's trip around the world bed quilt, not a baby quilt

    Sophia's Baby Quilt, an Irish Chain for a St. Patrick's Day baby. I promised the parents I would make a baby quilt in the summer when I was not taking any card tech courses.

    It's a trip around the world from a class taught by Jane Norquay.

    I'll try and get Sophia's baby quilt here

    This is an Irish Chain for a St. Patrick's day baby. I got the pattern from a book that I will now burn, and if I ever meet whoever created the pattern I will have to slap them. It was horrific to make, with almost non-existent directions.

    This is a quilt I made for my Grandmother last year. My mom found the blocks in her belongings when she was moving her to an assisted living complex. My grandmother had made them using liquid embroidery in the 70's I think.

    Mom gave me a swatch from Grandma's new sofa and I found some fabrics in my stash that worked.

    Four Generations quilt.

    The blue quilt is a Father's day gift I made for my DH a few years ago. It was a class that I took, I can't find the name of the teacher or the pattern, I think it's called a Sawtooth, does anyone recognize it?

    I traced the kids hand prints and quilted around them for the border, which of course you can't see in the photo.


    The table runner is a something I made to replace my very first quilting project, which had horrific colors. If I ever find the first one I will take a picture and post it here, it will be good for a laugh.

    Thank you all for your nice comments. The colors for the trip around the world bed quilts did not come out nicely on here, they are much brighter and vivid. I actually picked a color for our bedroom wall from the quilt. The deep dark purple with the light purple flowers. It is absolutely gorgeous, we've had it on our walls for about 6 years and I'm still not tired of it.

    I do love trying lots of new things with quilting that is why I've taken lots of classes (not to mention it is guaranteed time to quilt).

    I see I forgot to put up a picture of my table runner, so here it is.

    The bear claw table runner I made to replace the first quilt I ever made. The colors were hideous, and went with nothing in the room. If I ever find the original table runner I will take a photo and post it here.

    Cynde,
    Your table runner is gorgeous. I love those colors. The tan color with the leaves is so bright and warm it reminds me of a warm burning candle.
    :D Great Job! Can't wait to see more!

    Thank you, I just fell in love with that fabric as soon as I saw it and I bought 5 metres, and it turned out to be a table cloth fabric, so it's very wide too. It had a border also, so when I made this. I cut from the middle of the fabric, and I'm saving the border (and the rest of the fabric) for for something else, not sure what yet, but I'll know it when I see it.

    Hi Denise, thank you for the kind words. I dug out some of my older work, but realized I don't have my camera for a few days. I still cannot find my very first table runner, which was hideous. I must have really hidden it well.
