Pears by Joined at the Hip

I love it when I get to quilt for myself. My mom and I made these pear wallhangings from kits we purchased in the fall. I just got them both quilted. Mine is hanging on the inside of my front door.

Striped Squares

I like this simple quilt pattern. I used mostly geometricish quilting on it.
Since it wasn't very girly to begin with, I didn't want to add to many girly flowers and such.

Civil War Quilt

Another sampler quilt. My customer said it is a Civil War quilt. The colors are a little washed out in these photos. The quilt is beautiful.

Here is a closeup of the borders. Feathers, flowers, and swirl leaf sashing.

And here are some of my favorite blocks.

I reapeated the flower from the border in a few of the blocks.

Love the flags.


You will recognize this quilt as another art quilt from my artsy quilter.
She called this her scrap quilt. I would love to have my scraps turn out like this. She has developed a great personal style which I am starting to see in her quilts. This one is a mix of folk art, and Japanese to me. The fish and flowers look kind of Asian. I like it.
Here is the border and branch detail.

The fish were definately my favorite.

Especially this fish.

Blue Plate Special

This is my favorite quilt that I have quilted lately. It was pieced by my mom. (It is actually applique.) The pattern is by Quilt Soup.
They have alot of fun applique patterns, and a few without applique. I signed up for their monthly newsletter which includes a soup recipe. I love soup!

Red and Black Plaid

I did two of these soft flannel quilts lately. They remind me of highschool, because they are my school colors, and I quilted them for my best highschool friend's sister. I think a shirt in one of these lovely plaids would have been pretty stylin' then too.

Jenny's Pink Sampler

This is a sampler quilt I did for my sister Jenny last week.

This picture didn't turn out quite as good as I hoped, but it is the large border from the back so you can see the quilting better.
I really want to try a block like this.

One of my favorites.

Isn't the sashing crazy intricate?
