Latest Quilts

Attached are my latest quilts. I completed them within the last six months or so. I am also overjoyed because I was also able to totally complete the quilts myself. Courtesy of my quilting frame I can now piece and quilt them. I don't end up drained at the end of the project.

This is a baby quilt - not "assigned" to any baby yet. I do have some new nieces so who knows, it may have a new home soon.

Here's a close up, the quilt is made of animal blocks.

This quilt is for my father-in-law. I used my new ruler to make the blocks. Turned out pretty cool even though the pattern is different from what I originally planned, it always seems to turn out that way.

This is the quilt I call the "not" quilt. I started it a couple of years ago when I purchased my embroidery machine. I planned on completing it for a wedding gift, but life and circumstances intervened so instead of calling it "_________'s" quilt, it was named "not ___________'s quilt", then just the "not quilt". I'll have to rename it I guess, but since it turned out to be one of my favorite quilts, I doubt that I will ever gift it. I used my embroidery machine to sew flower blocks, the blocks include Bible passes. In between the embroidered blocks are disappearing nine-patch blocks.


The last one is one of the first quilts I completed with the quilting frame. I posted a picture of it earlier but this is a better view. It is made up of strips of African fabric.

Wonderful wonderful work, my friend.
Hope I can get this posted past that difficult word verification enabled here.
