I enjoy quilting, and here are some of my quilts:
Al's Quilt, Blue Eyes and Bow Ties
This quilt was made entirely by hand. It was made to honor my brother Al and his wife Jan. When my brother was a baby, our mother would dress him in blue bow ties to complement his baby blue eyes.
Near the label, is a packet embedded in the quilt that contains the curls from their son's first hair cut.
A Different View From My Window
This is an attic windows made for my best friend, Virginia. Each window is different to show what she sees each weekend while she is on the road at cat shows. Many of the views are cats, but others commemorate shared experiences like an ice cream sundae at the top of the Eiffel Tower. A scene from Singing in the Rain to remember the time she and Matthew danced down a rainy street in NYC....so many memories! I also made her the wallhanging above the bed - "Best Friends".
Amanda's Shoe Quilt
This was made by me and my daughters, Chrissie and Rachel. Grandson David even helped!
Among the many shoes, there is a blue suede shoe and a glittery red shoe from the Wizard of Oz. Lots of different fabric are in the shoes...silk, ultrasuede, sequinned and satin. This was fun to make, I designed a paper pieced pattern for the shoe, since then there are several patterns online.
This is Jacob's Quilt, daughter Chrissie, her friend Amanda and I made it for for Amanda's nephew.
