Quilts that I have made this year

I have been teaching quilting for the past 15 years. I really enjoy sharing my love of quilting with others.

I have been busy quilting this past year. I was inspired by the yahoo group stashbusters to finish several of my unfinished projects so here is what I have completed so far this year! (Only 2 months left I hope to finish at least 2 more).

These two pictures are of a quilt I made for my daughter's friend. I just love how the label turned out! I used a b/w graphic from pchug club and then colored the fabric. I think it's a great way to welcome a new little one!
This is a companion quilt that I also made at the same time.
This was made to be displayed at Regalitos, the local quilt shop in Jackson Michigan. It will go to a grandchild someday.

Dorothy Young sponsors a mystery quilt several times a year. This was her valentines mystery for 2006. I just love how she takes the time to make sure the directions are accurate, it makes doing a mystery so much more exciting knowing that it will turn out!

This is a nickel quilt that I recently finished. It is the Jacobs Ladder design. I taught a nickel quilt club. I love the contrast with the brights and the black background.

I have also had a hand in quilt designing this year. I have published and taught three classes on the 5- one yard pieces of fabric theme.

This quilt was made with fabric from my daughters dresses that they wore as babies. Now which one gets the Quilt? I really stash busted on this one, I did have to purchase fabric for the border but that's it.


This wolf quilt is the same quilt pattern. I gave this quilt to Elder Morden who is currently serving a mission here in the South Chicago Mission. I also have one that I am waiting to be quilted with fish and deer. I really like how this one turns out.
The puppies were the start of another design. I love teaching this quilt because it is quick and easy. This one also has a matching pillowcase. This will be my niece, Tori's, Christmas present.
These quilts are so easy to make! It takes about 2 and 1/2 hours to piece a quilt!
Here it is again with a different fabric. This quilt will go to my daughter Stephanie this Christmas. It also has a matching pillow!
This was soo easy to make with an extra block!
These are some of the quilts that I have made this year. I have two more that I hope to finish before the end of the year. So hopefully I won't be made queen of the Stashbuster's this year!
