Horse Quilt

I had several triangle pieces left over from this quilt and I wanted to use them for something.  So we cut them into 2.5 inch squares and I designed this quilt just for those scraps!  Every lady in quilt ministry sewed at lease 2 nine patches of the border.  Such a great group effort.


The center needed a special touch, so we used the cricut to cut out a horse.  It was appliqued to a brown block and framed with the checker board pieces.  The brown fabric does have some texture to it, it's called mirage.  But from a distance it looks solid so I quilted the straight lines on it to make it look like wooden slats.  The criss cross on the checkerboard adds a nice touch to the outside frame.


Teddy's Disappearing Nine Quilt


I just love this pattern because it goes together so quickly.  We did this one with only 3 supporting colors.  I do like to use more colors usually, but this one is cute!

Gray and Yellow Quilt

 This quilt was a group effort by several different ladies in our quilt ministry.   We had enough to put some on the back too.  I love it when we can do that!

Watermelon Candy


This quilt reminds me a jolly ranchers!  So fun to make and I had enough left over to put some on the back and make another one.  It's in the pile to cut...might be a while!

Softly Random

Here's the latest quilt finish for the ministry.  I have 1 more day until the kids get home to get the rest finished!  There are 4 ready for binding and 1 still on the Big Lady...agh!!!  I didn't know what to call this quilt.  So creative, huh?  I love the softness of this one and it's so easy to make.  I better get back to work!

Airplane Quilt


I found this cool airplane fabric while shopping with a friend one day!  I wanted to have large pieces of it on the quilt, but at the same time, I wanted something interesting to go with it.  So I made this block that reminds me of a propeller.  (It also looks like X's and O's now that I see the picture of it!)


Close up of the blocks. I tried a large meander on it and my husband says that is looks like the streamers that follow an airplane in the air or perhaps the water vapor trail.   I have several more quilts lined up for the Big Lady and with the kids at camp this week, I should be very productive!

Flowers on Black Quilt


Been a while since we finished a quilt, huh?  Well, we got this one whipped together very quickly (with more almost finished)!  Photo's not so great, but it's dinner time!  We meet this Thursday at 6 pm.  Hope you can make it!
