Isn't this a bright and cheerful quilt? The piecer's first big quilt!
Fabulous quilt! I used 3 colors of Isacord thread on this. Ribbons in the stars and the yellow border. Feathers in the white and the big triangles. The back is navy, the same as the navy in the front but the color didn't turn out right.

Quilted with 'Windbown'. Stone variegated king tut thread with beige in bobbin. Polyester batting.
Isn't this a fun quilt? Not sure I could sleep under it though. This is a heavy polyester batting and the quilting shows up great, on the front anyway.
Where did the quilting go? It's there I promise and actually visible in real life.

This basket weave made from jelly roll was made for a new baby. I love the soft colors and simplicity of the design.
Individual motifs of a Fairy holding a flower in each block. In each row of blocks the motif is reversed; and the fairies alternate colors; green and cream.
The border is my curling feather and I used Isacord thread.
A birthday present. I outlined the hands and did crosshatching behind them. (One friend told me that she couldn't be paid enough to do crosshatching.....it isn't that bad, a bit time consuming but it looks really great.)
A grandson's hand print.
Bordered with feathers. All quilted with Isacord thread which is shiny and looks great here.
This turned out looking so good quilted. I love the spotty fabric she used in here, she got it at Hancock's...(they are out, I checked.)
Here you can see part of the panto. I'll certainly use that again and again.
