Bright baby log cabin quilt

This is a wonderful baby quilt made by Kathy D. It's a really pretty half log cabin pattern. We chose a pattern called Interlocking bubbles that not only echoes some of the circles in the fabric, but also gives some roundness to a quilt that has a lot of straight lines.

American Spaniel Club tshirt quilt

Here's a t-shirt quilt that Joan S made. She had t-shirts each year from the national meeting of the American Spaniel Club. She made them into a tshirt quilt and did a great job! Then I quilted it with paw prints. They raffled the quilt off at this year's national meeting with the proceeds going for research into Spaniel cataract research. Joan said the raffle raised $1200!!!!!

St. Ursula t-shirt quilt

Lisa W came into my studio and had me make a t-shirt quilt for her daughter Anna. Anna graduated from St. Ursula. This quilt is a 3x5, meaning 3 squares across and 5 squares down. This size ends up being about 56"x92", which is equivalent to a Twin XL, perfect for that college dorm bed. We chose a quilting pattern Geometric on Point, which "suggests" arrows - the St. Ursula mascot.

Retirement quilt

This is Cathy F's quilt that she made for her husband's retirement. She had people sign fabric squares and put those into the quilt. Then she also added special photographs printed onto printable fabric and put those into the quilt as well. We picked a quilting pattern that is a freehand meander version of dots and circles. Freehand means that instead of following a set pattern, I quilted around each item as was needed. So in the quilting picture, you'll see that I did not quilt through the photograph and accent quilted the signature block.

Charmed Nines on Point quilt

Here's a great quilt from Sheila L. She calls this one Charmed 9's on Point. I believe it was made during a Scrap Happenin' class at Sonflower Quilts. She used a pack of coordinated indigo fabrics and then added her scrappy oranges. What a stunning quilt! (I love orange!). We used a quilting pattern called "Windows". You won't notice the quilting so much - and that's entirely the point. The fabrics in this quilt are and should be the focal point of this quilt.

5 x 6 tshirt quilt

Here's an example of a 30 square tshirt quilt - the largest one i can make. (5 squares across and 6 squares down). Laura M came to me and asked me to help complete construction of her tshirt quilt that she was making for her son. She had started a few of the squares herself and then I made the rest of the squares, put the quilt top together, quilted it and then finished it. Laura chose a great quilting pattern called Windows. The quilt ended up being about queen size and it turned out great.
