Hawaii Quilt

This fun quilt was made by my sister, Bonny, for her MIL for Christmas. Due to some mailing complications, I didn't get it until January sometime. I quilted X's in the sashing and a Hawaiian looking flower in the middle of the four patch. It is quite difficult to see to the flower on the front . . .
So here is the back shot. Bonny bought these 5" Hawaiian squares at a swap meet in Hawaii while on a family vacation with her in laws. She got a whole stack of 300 for only 5 bucks. What a fun way to remember their vacation - a quilt!

Boxer Quilt

I love the idea of making a quilt from pieces of other important or memorable things. This one is made from several pairs of boxers. Girl boxers, you know comfy pajama shorts, not worn as underwear. Any how. Really simple quilting going on here. X's in the background squares, and continuous curves in the print squares.

Farm Landscape

It is official. Blogger hates me. It won't let me upload the full picture of this quilt because it is an unsupported image type which is not true. I saved it as a jpeg. Whatever. I have been trying to finish this post for a week now. I was lucky enough to get to do this cool art quilt. It would look so good behind my kitchen table on my red wall. I did this quilter's very first quilt about two years ago. Now she is designing her own wonderful creations like this one. She uses a variety of techiques such as piecing, applique and embroidery to create her unique designs. I kept the quilting simple, using mostly textural patterns. I wish you could see the whole thing. I have another quilt from this quilter on my waiting list. I can't wait to show it too you soon!

Flowers Baby

Soon there will a be a new baby girl on earth, and this quilt is waiting for her. Isn't she lucky? I took this picture a few weeks ago, before my own baby was sick, and I guess I forgot the close ups. Sorry guys. The flower border I quilted was the highlight of quilting on this quilt. The rest I kept pretty simple.
