A burst of sunshine

This quilt is a burst of sunshine in all the gloomy winter weather!  Karlisa is new to quilting and this is one of her first quilts - she did such excellent work! 

She used lots of different gold and brown fabrics, many contributed by her small group.
Pretty impressive for a first quilt!

Lots of excuses

It's been a long time since I last posted but I have lots of good excuses.  My hard drive died and it took a forever to get it fixed over the Thanksgiving holiday.  Once I got my computer back I had to reload all my programs and get all the settings back the way they had been.  For a non-computer person, this was a challenge!  Fortunately, all of my data was safely transferred to the new hard drive so I didn't lose my pictures and documents.  Next,  I couldn't get Blogger to allow me to post photos.  After a lot of tweedling with it, I managed to get it to work but it is still misbehaving. Finally, I have to admit it was hard to come back to earth after Houston.
This is Evie's applique quilt which she did a beautiful job on.  Those big blocks are pretty much filled with applique, so the challenge for me was to find a way to add a little stucture to the background.  I prefer that to a sea of background quilting.

Next is Cecille's quilt made with embroidered blocks. 

She came up with her own setting to show them off.



I just finished my last customer quilt of the year.  Time to enjoy the holiday.
