    Hi I thought I would post some of my more recent quilts (my older ones did not get photographed with a digital camera)

    This one is a comfort quilt I made for my SIL while she was having chemo and radiation for breast cancer. It was a class I took at a the Quilted Garden shop, taught by Catherine Hanna.

    This is my favorite quilt, the pattern is from the Freckles Collection. It says "Seasons come and go but families are forever".

    This one is called Cynde finally gets her Calla Lilies. It is from a kit that I bought in Puyallup, which I have lent to my mom and can't get the name right now.

    Oh wow, those are all beautiful cynde. I especially love the lily!! How did you do the one with the houses? Is that machine embroidered? What? It's so unique!! My dd got a teddy bear quilt similar to the one you're showing when she had her third child. SO cute. :)

    Here are a few more, and while I am posting I should add that my avatar is a quilt I made in the Quadrille Twister class taught by Dianne Stevenson, and it is based on the Martha Thompson's class and book.

    The mantle scarf was a class I took a couple of years ago by Dianne Senra, she said her pattern was inspired by one from Quilt Lover's Favorites. The class taught the pinwheel design that are in my two mantle scarves, but the one I made for my mom I just did a log cabin block that came out to the correct size.

    These are some Christmas stockings I made when I first started quilting. The mantel scarf was a class I took at a shop called A Great Notion. I have made three of these, two for me and one for my mom.

    This is one of four wall hangings in a series called Seasons Medley, by Vanilla House. I have only done the spring and summer so far.

    This is an advent calendar I made one of my first years quilting. It was a class put on by my quilting guild.

    Lin you are so fast, you posted while I was posting some more pictures. The house one I hand embroidered. I wanted a small portable project to take to the dentist I spent a lot of time waiting for my dd who had braces, soccer practices etc....

    It took me two years to complete and the embroidery was by far the most time consuming part of it.

    This is the mantle scarf I made for my mom this past Christmas. I put it up on her mantle when we arrived at their house on Christmas eve and it was so hectic she didn't notice it until Christmas morning, which was perfect.

    Hi Heather, my goodness you are just as fast as Lin.

    Here is one I put in my intro, but I just have to add it here, it is my most recent completed project. Just before she passed away, my great grandmother embroidered the task a day onto flour sack cloth, to make T towels for my grandmother.

    I inherited the T towels, and cut them down into pictures for my children's nursery. After I took up quilting I decided they had to go into a quilt.

    I purchased all the '30s replica fabric I could find and designed this quilt. I had my dad draw some bunnies and flowers to match the original blocks and my mother and I embroidered these for the corner blocks.

    I have two tops ready to be sandwiched right now, but I've lost my camera, so I will have to borrow one, when they are done.

    Oh heavens, it's too early for such eye candy cynde!! Your work is so inspiring! Thank you so much for sharing all these wonderful works. I just love all the Christmas quilts you've shown. I've been meaning to make a mantel cloth for some time, and now I'm truly inspired to do so. Lordy girl, you could have a show of your own. :mrgreen:

    Your work is so gorgeous. I particularly like the calla lilies, the mantel scarves, and the Christmas log cabin.

    Wow thank you all for the compliments, you've got me blushing here.

    As I've said my earlier work is not on digital, so you haven't had to look at my early struggles with colour and wavy binding lol.

    Again thanks for all the kind words, I'll add the next two projects when I find my camera, or break down and buy a new one.

    Don't ask me why, but I feel so energized when looking at other people's work! It is inspiring I think and this was wonderful. the only thing that would have made it better would be to get a chance to work on my numerous UFO's after seeing your wonderful projects. Unfortunately, I am at work and will probably be so tired I can't even think about sewing once my day is over. Thanks for sharing all these wonderful projects. I always liking looking at other people's work :!:

    Vicki, I'm with you. I'm also at work and eating my lunch. I haven't touched my sewing maching in ages. But seeing everyone's work gives me encouragement and keeps the possibilities alive. However I did complete an afghan last night while watching pre-season football. So all is not lost. Ellen

    So true! It makes me want to rush right into my sewing room and design a new top~~maybe even one just like I've seen. :P
    It's a shame you don't have more time to devote to your quilts vicki. :(

    I agree with everyone your work is just stunning. I really like the mantal cloth. Do you have a pattern for this or do you know where I can get the pattern? I now have a mantal and now that I've started quilting I would love to make one of these. Keep up the great work and thanks so much for sharing.

    Barb, I have been looking for the pattern for the mantle scarf, but I cannot find it right now. If I come across it I will let you know tho. It was really easy and fun.
