This wonky nine patch is made from all flannels.  I love the earth tone purples and the oak leaves in the border.  I used an oak leaf edge to edge design and the effect on the purple acorn backing is outstanding.  The leaves also enhance the geometric lines on the front.    What a cozy quilt!

My favorite flowers are sunflowers so this was so much fun to quilt.  I used a sunflower quilt design and bright yellow thread which looks amazing on the green backing.  This truly is a quilt to wake you up in the morning!

I am amazed at all the different quilt tops that can be made with Kaffe fabrics.   The colors and prints are so bold and bright that a busy design would be lost.  Best to keep it simple!   But I couldn’t stop there, I had to add variegated thread and it looks amazing!

Bright colors and mola animals makes this a great baby quilt.  I used mola patterns in the red and white blocks and I outlined the animals in the feature blocks.  I love the straight lines in the red sashing and the wavy line in the white sashing.  Great combination of ruler work, free motion quilting and robotics to create an amazing quilt.

Can’t you just see the plane swooping and soaring through the sky with this quilt design of stars and waves.    I love how the quilted stars reflect the applique stars on the quilt top.  A fantastic blend of piece work and quilting makes this an incredible quilt.

Here is the second of the wall hangings.  I didn’t want the background of three different colored fabrics to take over the quilt or not remain distinctive so I used the same background fill in different directions and the result is incredible!
