Tammy's flower patch

This is Tammy's cute flowery quilt.  She said she got real tired of appliqueing little circles in the center of each flower, but I would say it was worth it.

Tammy's workmanship is excellent, which makes my job a lot easier.  This was quilted with Invisifil thread, which I am growing quite fond of.


This will be entered in our guild show at the end of June.


Nearly finished with my pile of quilts for our guild show.

Ann found this pattern for a full sized quilt in Quiltmania and decided to make a wallhanging version of it.  Partly because she has made many bed sized quilts and doesn't actually need anymore, but she also confessed that those pieced borders just about did her in and she did not want to face another one.

Her piecing is excellent as always, and all that off white background inspired me to do lots of quilting! 


I used Hobbs wool and Invisifil thread.

Joni sent me this pretty wallhanging, also very well pieced, and told me she wanted it quilted very traditionally. 

I'm nearly caught up with the quilts I need to finish before my guild show at the end of June - 2 1/2 more to go not counting one of my own.  Prairie Quilt Guild puts on a BIG show in Wichita, June 26 -28, you can check it out here.

Selvage Star of Bethlehem

Here is another of Mayleen's amazing quilts.  This is her Selvage Star of Bethlehem inspired by an antique quilt.  You can see a picture of the inspiration quilt on her blog.  This is her third of fourth selvage quilt that I know of.  She asked our guild for help collecting selvages and now has a seemingly unending supply of them.  I know she is working on another one now.


She always moans about how bad she thinks she did on the piecing but honestly, it looks good up close.  And I do see it up close and personal when I quilt it!

I've been told these little curly things I quilted look like Cheeto trees! 

I like how this curly border turned out.

You might remember me posting some cute rainbow-hued booties crocheted by my friend Virginia, who is in my little Sedgwick sewing group.  She came up with another cute pair for a new little cowboy!
