Normally quilts are for beds. They can both decorate the bed when it's not being used, and keep us warm when it is.
I always loved the quilt on the bed from the British sitcom As Time Goes
By. At first I thought it was a pinwheel, but with the pause button I soon figured out it was the Broken Dishes
pattern. These Aunt Grace reproductions were the perfect thing for the pattern. Jackie did the quilting, paying
close attention to the period the quilt would have been from. She did a wonderful job. It's now one of my favorite
quilts, and is used on my own bed.

This was a mystery quilt class presented by designer Ann Smith, as a part
of an on-line New Years Eve quilt party. Of course I had to do mine in purples, as that is my favorite color.

This quilt was quilted by Estie in New York.
Blended Nine Patch
This was made just because I wanted to try the pattern. It turned out beautifully if I do say so myself. I gave it to my sister-in-law as a Christmas/house-warming gift, since it went so well with her new bedroom.
This quilt was donated to Margaret's Hope Chest. It is a puss in the corner variation,
perfect block for this wild kitty fabric. This was a fast fun quilt to make. It was quilted by my good friend Jackie who did her usual terrific
job on it. (It is a twin size quilt, and you see it here on a queen size bed.)
This is my retreat bed quilt, made using the crooked squares pattern. The center of each block is a signature spot
for the friends I've made at the retreats. There are some empty spaces for retreats still to come.
This is a single Irish chain, a very easy quilt to make.
It's nine patch blocks set alternately with plain squares.
