Quilts- Christmas 2009

These are quilts that I made last month for Christmas gifts this year.  Two lucky gals will get them Christmas day.    Again "Yellow Brick Road".

Fast Easy Quilts

These are fast easy quilts to make for Christmas.  It takes four days to make this quilt complete.  First day rotary cut fabric.  Second day piece together.  Third day quilt simple design.  Fourth day bind.  Walla! Finished.   The pattern is "Yellow Brick Road".  All of the quilts that I have made with this pattern look different. These are last year quilts.    Enjoy!

Heather's Wedding Quilt

Another wedding quilt,  whooooa! I think I'll call myself the wedding quilt Queen.   My daughter is getting married next May.    Heather and Jason choose black &  white for their wedding theme.   She love's Art Deco, which she calls Victorian, or should I say she likes both styles.

The fabric is Essential by Studio Fabrics,   block pattern is drunkards path  design on EQ5.  I will change the style of the border to scallops with pointed corners after it is quilted.  I'll piece the top but not quilt it until the Holidays are over.  (My quiet time)

New England Butterfly

Travel through the New England states last month to see the fall foliage.  Simply beautiful!  I was taking photos along the ocean and this butterfly showed up.  It kept following me as I was walking along the coast.  When I would stop, it would land on a branch spread it's wings as to say take my picture.   God's an artist too!   So beautiful!

Winter Log Cabin

First Quilts

Here are a few photos of the first log cabin quilts that I quilted a few years ago.  When I first started quilting I would search magazines for ideas,  I had know idea where to start.  These quilts were quilted before I had any classes or knew what I was doing.  It is fun to look back at my wonky feathers and swirls on the blue and white quilt.  The brown and white log cabin was just a simple background  pebble fill with vine and berry in the sashing.  I got the idea from the print on the fabric. (I guess that is what you call letting the quilt talk to you.) LOL    Enjoy!
