Bed Quilts

Snail's Trail
Snail's Trail
This blue and white quilt is in the traditional snail's trail pattern and was chosen for my son and daughter in law when they married. We all like Escher and this is an example of a tesselation. It was my first experiment with paper piecing and proved to me that it was better that way. I tried samples both with and without paper and though I thought I could do well without it I liked the result better with it. So far four quilts have been made with this collection of fabrics and a fifth is in progress.
An early experiment
An early experiment
This purple quilt is a very early experiment and learning project with rotary cutting before it became common.
Christmas quilt
Christmas quilt
The Christmas quilt is an example of creative problem solving. It started out as a project for two tree skirts with a free pattern, using stack and whack technique, from Hancock Fabrics. The poinsettia fabric was flawed so the number of blocks I was able to make from the good part determined what I would do. It became a small quilt. That year stack and whack was such fun that I made about seven different ones from Thanksgiving to Christmas. It is addictive but I'm cured. Other projects diverted me.
Starring Amelia
Starring Amelia
With help from Grampy Ray, I made Amelia a new quilt for Christmas. It is called "Starring Amelia" and is made of star motif fabrics. Many family members' pictures and Amelia's birth information are underneath four pointed squares. She can open the squares to see the pictures and play peek-a-boo! Some of them are pinned open for you to see inside.
