John and Havilah's Wedding Quilt

This is a quilt I made for some friends getting married.  I love doing these wholecloth quilts.  It's so much fun to design and then quilt.


It has quite a bit of trapunto work in it.  It's great for those sitting around cutting times.  It takes small, very sharp scissors.

Gardening Aprons

I found this fabric on my quilt guild's give away table and made these aprons for my gardening granddaughters.



Aren't they pretty nice girls?

Poppies

This is another quilt that I made from the book Flower Show Quilts
And I do like poppies a lot.  


I patchworked the background, quilted it on my longarm, then I fused the applique on top and used my home machine to quilt the flowers and leaves. 



I'm very happy with how it turned out.

I like Hawaiian quilts. But I wanted a fallish quilt and I found a pic of a design that I decided to copy in the style of Hawaiian but it is a little different.  

'
I also used fabrics that I had on hand.  It is all hand applique, like Hawaiian.

Finally a New Quilt

This is a quilt that I finished last September.  I was copying a Kim Diehl quilt to some degree.  I like her quilts.  They look comforting and homey.  


And I was using only scraps.  The never seem to make a dent in my stash. Hmmm....

Sunflowers

I bought a book many years ago called Flower Show Quilts.  Finally I did a quilt from it.  I love sunflowers and this tablerunner looked like something I'd enjoy.


I did the patchwork first and then quilted it.  After that I did the fusable applique doing the quilting on those pieces afterwards.


I used all scraps which didn't really make a dent in anything.  Do quilters ever use all their fabrics up?




Now I've started the second item from that book.  I think I will do several of these.

Baby Knits

These are a couple of things that I knitted recently for some new babies.  This one is one that is knitted sideways.  I've done another one before and I like the look with the lace design.



 This sweater I've also done in the past.  But this time I put white on dark.  



And I knitted a hat to go with it.
