Clever!  This was three smaller design walls from previous classes.  They were sewn together matching up the grid and then sandwiched like a traditional quilt.  I did a large meander and with the addition of a sleeve this is an incredible design wall to leave on a wall.  Now to figure out how to make one for myself!

Fun scrap quilt featuring a plus symbol or is it an X?   Look at how the backing is perfect for the front.  I used a variegated thread and a curly pattern to contrast the lines.  Should I have called this quilt X’s and Curls?

This cheerful quilt features pieced butterflies and an allover pattern with flowers, curls and more butterflies.  I used a pink and orange variegated thread with looks fabulous on front and back.   This was a gift for a dear friend going through cancer treatment.   As I write this blog post, the piecer just shared with me that this quilt went on the last treatment appointment.  I  love being part of the healing process.

This quilt was a challenge as I was asked to do an edge to edge that looked custom.  The background is a shattered design that I programmed to quilt around the stars and blocks.  I then dropped a computer motif with matching thread into each star.  The result is out of this world!

When you buy a collection of fabrics that are already pre cut into 10 inch squares, it is called a layer cake.  This pattern features the 10 inch block with out having to sub cut the squares with a bold black diagonal sashing.  All the fabrics have printed stars and it inspired me to quilt this with a star and swirl pattern which keep your eyes moving across the quilt from block to block.  Incredible!

What a fantastic quilt for a favorite little boy!  The fabrics are novelty and perfect for “I Spy”.  The pattern is a Nuts and Bolts edge to edge, great for masculine quilts and echoes the lines and angles of the piecing.  The backing is a minky fabric and shows off the quilting design!  You can bet this quilt goes everywhere with him!

Another in the sampler series, this quilt was made in all Grunge fabrics.   The quilting was done with a gray thread on the top and a variegated red thread on the bottom and look at that design.   It reminds me of “The Jetsons” cartoon and it the texture it gives this quilt is amazing!
