Baby quilts and crib quilts. Quick projects – but loved and appreciated. These were for my friend, Karen’s, grandchildren.
I made matching quilts for my great nephews, Shane and Nathan. The blocks are log cabin style around clipart transportation vehicles.
Above: This quilt was for my sister Pam. (Pictured on the left holding it.) It is paper pieced for the most part. I like that because I am vision impaired and that allows me to be accurate and gives me clear sewing lines. Pam is delighted with her quilt – and she is such a thankful person, every moment of designing it and sewing it was fun!
This Bargello was for my niece, Lisa. It was my first Bargello. I had Lisa select 6 fat quarters that she liked – then I used them as a guide to select the 12 fabrics that I used. They didn’t necessarily include the fabrics she selected – but they coordinated with them and included the variety and values I needed to get the design movement. She also loved her quilt. My family is always so appreciative.
This quilt was for Mary. First truly original quilt I made.
