The Illusion quilt -lap size or twin topper. It started with a little charm pack gifted to me by a good friend. I found the grey fabric at my guild meeting and it was FREE… so far all this one cost me was my time and thread(grey, too). Finished in Dec 2016
Grandson’s Birthday: Binding tool Star
November and 2 small quilts done.
The top quilt is made from “stash” fabric and the 5″ half hexi template. The Black and white, is the Disappearing 4 patch (gifted to Janet L. for her friendship and support of DD#2’s Chemo appointments)
we kept the top stacking block quilt (lap size)
2015 May: Hunter’s Star:
twin size in blues and off white. I just had to try something new and a bit challenging for me. Getting all those points to match up was hard. I did fail in a couple stars, but No One should notice because of the busy pattern. Say hello to my QA inspector. Smudge loves my quilts.
A finish: 2014 Grandma’s Garden Flowers:
2 years in the making, but finally finished. Basic colors, 5 inch half-hexi template and white background & backing.

Love Knot 2009
Blue and white.. This is an Applique pattern Also found in the magazine from Better Homes & Garden. LOve KNOT quilt with large 4 patch border.. I backed it with white flannel and straight stitch quilted it..(not shown) the bottom of the border were blue & white alternating pairie points. The Auction/drawing made over $500.00 for a good cause.
My first go at making a Starburst pattern found in a magazine… American Patchwork & Quilting Oct. 2008 from Better Homes and Gardens Creative Collection. Or head over to this “LINK” for step by step, pictures and King-size Starburst tut.
The only reason I did it? Because it was my Grandmother’s favorite pattern that she refused to share the How-To’s with anyone… It was her pride and “secret” on how she made it back in 1965.. My fav cousin in Tx now owns this lap size quilt.. She was quilting it last I visited her.
This is the quilt that got me back into sewing and making More Quilts. I saw a show on TV that made these round “pancake” blocks.. So I fussy cut out some Pooh Characters and made a queen size quilt for DD#2 who loved the Pooh Movie. It was her first Movie at age 3. So for a FAMILY Memory.. Pancake Pooh was born. 2009.
