I copied a quilt I found online but could not find a pattern for it. I call it Bold and Classy. It is machine pieced and hand appliqued. I haven't quilted it yet. I plan to begin that very soon.

This quilt replaces a flannel quilt I made for her years ago that was burned up in a house fire. One side of this quilt is flannel log cabin blocks which are soft and cuddly in her favorite autumn colors. The back side of the quilt is all cotton appliqued spring flowers. This is, essentially, two quilts in one. I hope she likes it. April 2014.

Denise, my dearest friend and quilting buddy steered me off onto mini quilts for a break from the usual big stuff we make. It was fun. The goal is to make a tiny version of the big patterns and it's quite interesting and no as easy as you might think. I have made two so far. Both pinwheel patterns with simple framing and binding. I like them but my husband said, " Bah. They're too much work for what you wind up with." They measure 10 l/2" X 12 l/2 "
Update: I have a photo of Alanna in her dress along with a doll dress to match I made for her baby.

Another quilt for a customer made from her Dad's old shirts. I made this a reversible quilt also. Log Cabins on one side and a neutral colored patchwork quilt on the back of it. She wanted a ' Margaritaville' patch from his old sweatshirt included on the front of the quilt so I awkwardly placed it in a corner although I was not crazy about the idea. It's HER quilt!
