SHOCKER 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quilt buddy Carol made this fabulous Shocker t-shirt quilt.  

     This quilt has even made a road trip – to St Louis when the Shockers won the 2014 Missouri Valley Tournament!

      If I remember correctly (? – HA!) she uses my T-SHIRT STAX pattern to make custom quilts also.

CHRY STAR 1

 

     Here is CHERRY STARBURST.   Block #874 in Vol #9.  I LOVE (!) designing sampler blocks.  When I worked at a quilt shop, I taught many sampler block classes and have been a block fanatic since.

 

 

 

                I am almost finished making this quilt for PRAIRIE QUILT GUILD SHOW in June 2014.  This is actually a  computer-generated photo.  The nearly finished product is even more beautiful!

Hello all!     Well,  Miss Emily has whipped up another winner.   She is quite a prolific and talented young quilter, making models for Friendship Star Quilt Shop in El Dorado, Kansas.   You go girl!

FANCY THAT! EXTRAORDINAIRE

25 Apr

WOWEE!!!    This lovely creation (my pattern Fancy That) was made by my friend (and favorite quilter) Debra Freese.  This eye-popper also has some extra treats, as Debra has added some Celtic designs.   Debra is an extremely talented quilter (who also has been published).  I’m so blessed to get to share in her extraordinary creativity.

FOR BABY-TO-BE

23 Apr

 

Well, well, well,  we are ahead of schedule!   Great-nephew due in June, and the baby quilt is finished and delivered!  This simple quilt is an “I SPY” game for the whole family.  But I have to admit, there is an unusually high number of blocks with DOGS.   No surprise there,  ha!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

26 Jan

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL !!!

Busy, Blessed, and Joyful was the Christmas holiday with family.  Sharing the year’s events, playing volleyball, chasing each other on go carts, and eating, of course!

But I admit I’m anxious to get back to the sewing machine with all the new designs popping around in my head, like a new t-shirt quilt pattern, tablerunners, and baby quilts.

Shipped off lots of patterns for a test run in two national stores, so am thrilled at the possibilities that could bring, including the cross pattern above.    I’m to teach a class at Picket Fence Quilt Company  on crayon tinting/embroidery coming soon.  Bought a brand new box of crayons just for that project – too fun!  Have the coloring done, now must go upstairs and prepare to get started with the embroidery.

Joyful Stitching to you!
