Farm Girl Vintage Tractor Quilt
This was made for a friend to give as a baby gift. "Farm" was the theme with red and green as the colors. Lori Holt's pattern was modifified slightly to reduce the size and to stagger the pinwheels. It was really hard to let this one go!
Hearts Repaired and Replaced
This quilt is for a benefit in our community in September. A young woman named Kim was born with heart issues and has had many surgeries in her young life. Now in her twenties she needed a heart transplant and was blessed to receive the new heart this year. The quilt is adapted from a quilt as you go design but I made the top and quilted it as a full quilt. The blocks were made in pairs then slashed and sewn together to create the light and dark as well as the repaired hearts. The back is piece using a zipper from the MSQC tutorial Zipper Quilt. Love the zipper to add interest to the back of the quilt and use up some of the scraps.
French braid quilt
French Braid Quilts by Jane Hardy Miller is a wonderful book that I fell in love with several years ago. This is the 5th quilt I've made from that book and I love each one more than the last. I love the colors of this quilt, soft creams, pinks, mauves, and browns.
The fabric line is Cosmic Convoy by Michele Brummer Everett. Pattern designed by Michelle Engel Bencsko. I sent it off to M* to be quilted with this whimsy outer space design and I just adore it. They did a fantastic job. Now the husband and I are arguing over which one of us gets to keep it.
You know when you go to the quilt store to get thread and then come home with a new sewing machine, Yes that happened thanks to my husband who insisted I buy a new Baby Lock that nearly sews by itself. He would not leave the store until I said yes and I also happened to pick out this Advent calendar at the time. With my new machine I was able to quilt the design of the angel to make her appear 3-D nearly

Alaska Row by Row 2015
My husband and I took an Alaskan cruise this summer and I visited every fabric shop I could find at each stop. I made this small quilt with the row by row kits I picked up. The back is made up of panels I picked up at some of the shops that weren't participating in the row by row.
Vintage baby quilt
I love this little quilt. I used about half of the Toy Chest jelly roll to make it. I saved the pinks and purples for a girl quilt. I had to supplement with a little bit of yardage from another line. I found this pattern on Pinterest. It's called "On a Jelly Roll" by Meadow Mist Designs. You can find it on Etsy. I will definitely make it again in other sizes and fabrics. If you buy the pattern, then make a pair of blocks before you cut out all of those 2 1/2" squares. You can save time by sewing strips and cutting them to the right size. I quilted it myself on my home sewing machine.
A quilt for new friends
We're getting ready to depart our rented home here in Baarn, Netherlands. As a remembrance I have made this quilt to give to the owners of the house. We couldn't have asked for a happier experience living in this lovely town and traveling to so many countries I never expected to see in my lifetime.
