Natalie's Birds

Natalie's quilt is ready for the embroiderer.
She likes birds

 You can see, I markered in the eyes.  I thought it was easier than applique.
Lots of them.

Pink and Yellow Birds.
Ribbon is my branches or phone wires?

Jan's Quilts

I  got my idea for this quilting from a pantograph.  It is nice, loose, swirly quilting and looks great.

This quilting is just swirls and flowers.

Row by Row from 2014

This is how long it takes me to do some of these row by row strips that I have.
This one is from a quilt shop in Eureka, Ca.

This one was pretty easy and fun to do although I did have a few problems with it.  I couldn't figure out why except that I made my flying geese not quite the right size?  
I like the free hanging quilts on this picture.

Here comes the rain.

Levi's Quilt

This is another simple baby quilt, very similar to Asher's.  In fact, it has a couple of the same fabrics in it. Both those babies like the woods.

I did straight line quilting on it, just as I did on Junes.  

I used a flannel for the backing.  These pieced quilts are some of the easiest ones to make.  They go so  quickly.

June's Quilt

This simple quilt is now quilted and given to June.

I got the idea from a quilt that I had pinned.  She had a tutorial for making it easy to piece which I really appreciated.  This is the link for that quilt.

This is showing the backside.  It is flannel.

Let's Fly to the Moon

My daughter who is a teacher asked me to knit some astronauts for their Team Moon project. These astronauts will be flying to the moon as each team completes goals in their classroom.  Which astronaut will get there first? 

I knitted them using the basic pattern for a 9" doll of Jean Greenhowe's.  It was quite fun adding the detail and the oxygen tanks on the back of them.

And an American flag.

These astronauts have their visors down.

The first one didn't have his visor down.  My daughter rejected him.  Too little kiddish, she said.
So he is going to a doctor's son of my grandson.  We appreciate this doctor very much.  The doctor saw me knitting one at the hospital and was intrigued with the detail I was putting on the astronaut.  I decided the doctor's son could get an astronaut

and his daughter is getting this Cinderella.  She is also a variation of a Jean Greenhowe doll.

 See the detailed flower in her hair.

Linda's Quilt

This is another beautiful batik quilt.  Rather fallish.

I quilted leaves and loops on this one.
