star placemats

One of my quilt groups is having a challenge. We all drew a crayon out of a bag, then had to make a quilted project with that color. The color I drew is `macaroni and cheese'. The next day I received a package from my secret pal with these 5 fabrics, and the light orange is the perfect `macaroni and cheese'!
Ta Da! Macaroni and Cheese placemats!

My finished Round Robin

This is my finished round robin. I just quilted and bound it as it came back to me. I didn't think it needed anything extra.

4th Round, Round Robin

The fourth and final round. This one was Bear Paw.
It was very difficult to choose a color. The owner wanted only her fabrics in the rounds.

3rd round, Round Robin

This is the 3rd round. It was applique.

Go Green Quilt

At the Beach
This is a 6 x 6 inch quilt I made for a challenge. It had to be made entirely out of things I already had. And have 2 found objects. I used a rock and a sand dollar.

2nd round, Round Robin

The second round is `Churn Dash'. I was going to add flowers in the purple corners, but thought it added too much `stuff' with 2 more rounds to go.
5-19-08: Good thing I didn't add flowers-the assignment for the next round is applique!!!

1st Round, Round Robin

My round is the flying geese. I tried to make them look like bats.
Trixee likes to help with pictures, so those are her feet on the left.

Class with Sandra Leichner

I loved taking this class, learning to add embellishment to my quilting. I love my finished piece too! Our supply kit had the background fabric with the leaves and petals fused on. The rest is my work!

Inchie Swaps

My March and April swapped inchies.

Round Robin

I am joining in a round robin with my local quilt guild. The center block has to be a basket block. I enlarged to 6 inches the basket from the Dear Jane book.
