Christmas Throw

Hello here I go again. I made this quilt in November of 2010 for the Christmas Season. I wanted to do something that had some mitering and some other elements for depth and interest... I got the idea from the Quiltmaker Magazine, but their version was in Violets. Though purple is my most favorite color I really didn't want to do the exact same quilt. So with that said I made this interpretation of it... I hope you enjoy the pattern and colors...

Solder of Valor Quilt

This quilt was started by one of the members of the Cape Cod Quilters Guild. Sunny Sailor is a Chairperson for this organization and and asked me to add boarders and backing to it. I now have it ready to do some free-motion quiting to it, and I do hope you enjoy looking...
This quilt will go to the Veterans Hospital for a wounded solder... for more pictures of quilts made by some fabulous quilters visit www.capecodquilters.com

Tie-died Scallop Quilt

This is an idea I got out of a McCalls Quilting Magazine and I thought I would be ambitious again, and instead of doing a straight edge on this quilt I bought a template and made a scallop boarder for this quilt... Lesson learned for this quilt was to was material first because the colors actually ran after my first washing of this and so after many washes, and using a color catcher, it has almost revived itself... Hope you enjoy...

Imperial Splendor

Can you believe that this was my very first quilt I ever did... I decided to leave my corporate health care position last April and do private duty... So I went to a local fabric store and bought a quilt kit and went for it. Some would say that I was quite ambitious for starting a quilt that was at a level of intermediate... I told them I am always up for a challenge...

Nantucket Trellis Quilt

This quilt I received as a gift from my husband on my birthday and I started it in Dec. 2010. I brought it into the Tumbleweeds Quilting shop on Wednesday March 9, 2011 and the Manager Mary took a photo of it and posted it on there blog: tumbletalk.blogspot.com and there you also can view some other wonderful pieces of work other quilters have done. I have just learned to qulit last spring and have just gone wild with wanting to do more and more projects...I do hope you enjoy the photos I provide for you...
