My Quilting Photo Journal
Please note as you view these photos, the sizes may not be all proportional. You might see a quilt that looks as small as a wall hanging or vice versa.
My Folk Art Hearts below are one of the many hearts patterns I designed for a quilting bee who did new and different hearts
every Valentine’s Day for about ten years. The wall hangings could be hung both ways and still have hearts. One lady made a larger
one and used it for a baby quilt, an idea I plan to copy someday!
This is the pattern I’ve decided to share this month.

|I enjoy making sampler quilts, and this is one of my favorites. We have this one (right) on our bed every
||This is my Retreat signature quilt, the plain squares have signatures from retreaters, some from the very beginning. I haven't taken it to the retreats for a few years, no idea why, but I'd better take it this year and start collecting signatures again.

|The Crabbie Quilt, so named because of the colorful crabs on the fabric, was the first quilt I quilted on my then new Jenome 6500. It took a while to get it quilted because the threads broke every time I reversed directions. After it was all quilted I went to put the feed dogs back up and discovered I'd never put them down.
The next eight quilts are miniatures, all smaller than 15 inches, done for a class I taught at the local guild, then again for another group in NC.
|I had scraps and needed a way to use them up, so I made this scrappy bargello from Quiltville.com. When it was finished I didn't like it. I took it to the quilter and told her I didn't like it, just quilt it anyway. I said I was going to cut it in half and make two charity quilts from it… well she did such a great job on the quilting I loved it when she was finished. I gave it to my in-laws as a Christmas gift and they love it too.
