Quilts from the Past

Just thought I'd share a few of the quilts I've done in the past:

This was done in Oct of 2013.  It was a Schnibbles Quilt Along.

A close up detail.  The fabric line was designed by Sandy Gervais.  Love the fall colors!

This one is titled"Pacific Island Sunset"
       I made it for a competition in 2008 sponsored by Quiltmaker Magazine and Robert Kaufman Fabrics. Made from batiks. It actually made it into the traveling exhibit and traveled around the US for the year! 

  A close up of the quilting detail.  There are sun rays coming out from the red "sun", oriental "clouds" in the light blue sky, swirls in the darker sky area, waves in the lower area where the "water" is, pebbling in the brown "sand" and swirls like vines in the foliage on the right side.  Pics aren't the best, but   I 'm learning about digital photography.  I got pretty good at film, but those days are gone, and I have a new set of things to learn!!  :-)


I'll post more later!




  1. Thanks for sharing these 2 beautiful quilts! How wonderful that your batik quilt was chosen to be part of a travelling exhibition. isn't it great when a quilt goes on tour, it's as though its having fun adventures, I just wish they could send postcards.
