1 quilt

A very pretty quilt by Peggy. I'm not sure the pictures are going to do it justice - it was very pretty when she dropped it off, and at the risk of bragging ~ the quilting turned out great....really makes the quilt!
This is the first time I've tried this particular kind of feather, and it was fun! I'll be using this one again in the future.

Took about 2 days longer than I hoped it would, what else is new.

Sheri's quilt

I tried to mimic the brown border on the very outside edge of the quilt - then ran a vine with oak leaves down the middle since the panto used in the center of the quilt had oak leaves.

Wall hanging - also by Sheri

This was made for a friend from Japan who came to visit awhile back and loved her trip to Utah. They didn't know until just recently if she was OK after all the problems in Japan...but finally heard from her and she's fine.

She didn't want a lot of excess quilting ~ so we elected to just put in a few 'fun' things like suns, clouds and birds to kind of tack down some of the larger sky areas that really needed more stitching.

4 quilts

Here is a minor miracle - this is a quilt that I actually made....don't know when the last time was I managed this! Ashley asked me to make this for Kinsey over a year ago and I finally, FINALLY got it done. (Ash threatened me that if I didn't have it done by Kinsey's birthday that she was going out and buying something!) She wanted minimal quilting, pretty much just outlining most of it...had to do more in the green area because it was too large of a space to leave unquilted - went with the crosshatching because I thought it would give a even consistency but not detract.Notice the little upside down heart - I did that on purpose....there was a secret message there :)
A stunning bed runner by Carla --- love, Love, LOVE it!
the outside border has a seaweed pattern quilted into it and the light blue border, waves. Carla bought these fabrics in Hawaii and it will be a gift for her sister who lives there.

Those little squares are less than an inch wide, we didn't want any stitching over them to detract from the beautiful fabrics, so I just SID in a stair step path following the colorways up.
These next two quilts were made by two sister-in-laws who went together on a quilting cruise -- how fun would that be??! This first one was a mystery quilt ~ I really like the fabric, so fun and colorful. She wanted a multi colored thread with an all over treatment.

the back.
See the spiderweb pieced in the center - they have a beautiful spider pin that will be attached later.
