    Here are 3 quilts I have started and finished in the past two months. The first is a design on the fly quilt done in less than a day start to finish including selecting fabric, deciding on a design, piecing, quilting and binding. It was made for a member of a Bible study I lead at the nursing home. I leaned on Monday afternoon that she was being moved by her children to a nursing home in another city Wed. morning and they were going to have a little going away party for her Tuesday at 5:00. There are design choices I would have done differently given more time. The second is a comfort quilt for my art teacher who has leukemia and the third is an I spy quilt for a 5 year old who had open heart surgery this week. The first is knotted. The other two are free motion quilted on my home machine.

    Sorry that the first two pictures got turned sideways. They both have scripture verses on the blocks with writing. the second has been painted with fabric paint on the alternate blocks.
