    Here is the quilt I call "Leaving California" because I started it in California, and finished it here in my new home state, Florida. It is from McCalls Quilting magazine (cover photo) I think it was October 2001's issue.

    The other quilt is a quick 9 patch I made from my purple stash and a gorgeous hydrangea print from the Old Paris line that was out in 2004.

    Enjoy.

    I agree with Ruth, it does remind me of lilacs. And the pattern is simple, but very effective! I sometimes get carried away with too many pieces and lose the thought. To use one of the new adjectives, it is geeeeorgeeeeous. (I think I got enough es in). :lol:

    Those are really nice. You do good work. I like the one with the leafs. The purple one is also nice. I like the idea that is is so simple but your choice of fabric really makes it.

    Ooooh!

    First, glad to see some of your work, and second, I love them.

    Like Heather, (live2teach) I love autumn, but I also love the to me, relaxing coziness of the purple.

    Thank you everyone for the applause!

    I am so proud of my quilts, being that I am mostly self taught! It is nice to have fellow quilters to share ideas and pics with.

    I hope to someday produce quilts like I have seen from others here. I am terribly intimidated by curves, applique and embroidery.

    Thanks again!

    My Aunt Violet would absolutely love the second quilt. She has had a "violet" room in every house she has ever lived in.
    Both your quilts are gorgeous!

    Both your quilts are gorgeous. I think I have the bear paw pattern you used. Will have to dig out my old magazines and check it out. Definately something I'd like to try after seeing yours. Good job, thanks for sharing.

    Just cruising thru older posts, don't feel like sewing today (?) and found your beautiful maple leaf quilt. I've been collecting leaf motif fabrics for 5 years, you have inspired me to start making the blocks.! :-D
