Mary Rose's Cross quilt

 Mary Rose is a woman at church who is struggling with cancer right now.  We're praying for a miracle.
 My daughter Tara did all the embroidery in one afternoon!
 My sister Mary made some of the blocks.

 It went together quickly, and I'm so glad she finally has it.

Father's quilt

 My father asked me to make him a quilt.  Even though he lives in Florida, he's cold.
 I guess at 84 years old, you get cold in Florida.  I know it does get chilly there.  He lives on the
west coast just outside of Sarasota.  So he's happy.  He asked for browns, and browns he got.

mini quilt

I made this quilt for Nancy It's her pattern, and I chose the fabrics - or, in total truthfulness, my daughter Tara, helped in a big way in the choosing of these fabrics.

So, Nancy wrote this great book, "Quilting from Every Angle".  And there's lots of really nice patterns in there for your perusal and pleasure :-)   

Unfortunately, I am a horrible photographer, so this pic didn't come out very well, but the quilt DID, thanks to Nancy's great directions and helpful tips.  It's a paper-piecing pattern, which is fun, quick, and accurate.

Pink Baby quilt means Noelle was born

Hi there,

Here's my latest quilt, a baby quilt for Noelle, a darling girl born a wee bit early, approximately three months early.

 So far it's just a top, or a "flimsy", but soon I will back, sandwich, bind it, and gift it!
