Broken Herringbone Quilt. I haven’t officially named this quilt yet. It’s for Mister, and it’s jewel-toned, but “Mister’s Jewel’s” just isn’t quite appropriate, knowwhatimean (jellybean)? Way fun quilt to make. Click HERE for the blog post.
2013 Sugar Block Club quilt. Given to granddaughter, Kim, as a Christmas gift. Quilting was straight lines, 4″ apart both horizontally and vertically. Blog post HERE.
2013 Skill Builder BOM quilt. Given to granddaughter, Ashley, as a Christmas gift. Each block was quilted as they were completed. The blocks were assembled with a binding method posted on the Pile O’ Fabric blog. Blog post HERE.
Among The Stars BOM quilt. Given to Mister’s Daughter-in-law, Jill, as a Christmas gift. I free motion quilted this in a meander pattern. It was my second quilt doing this. The green border was quilted in a simple back & forth pattern in a matching thread and the red border was a meander in red thread. Blog post HERE.
The Secret Garden quilt. Given to Mister’s son, Brian, as a Christmas gift. This was my very first time free motion quilting an entire (and big, for me!) quilt. I just did a basic meander with green Aurifil thread. Blog post HERE.

My very first quilt. So I named it “First Quilt”. Totally original, right?!
I made this with the MSQC tutorial Double Slice Layer Cake. I used a Heart Of A Nation by Windham Fabrics layer cake. Backing was muslin, and quilting was Stitch-in-the-Ditch. Completed May 9, 2012.
Major lesson learned with this quilt: Square up the freakin’ blocks!!
Martha’s Rose. This is the second quilt I made and it was for Mister’s mother’s 92nd birthday in July of 2012. A standard Square-in-a-Square (perfect for my second quilt, no?). Made using an American Banner Rose by Minick & Simpson for Moda layer cake. Quilting was 1/4″ echo of the seams lines on both sides. Completed July 9th, 2012.
Christmas Joy. This third quilt was made as a 2012 Christmas present for the Mister’s sister and her husband. Had fun making pinwheels! This was made out of Kate Spain’s line, “Joy”. I did a wide crosshatch quilting on this. Completed November 30, 3012
