My good friend Soma at http://www.whimsandfancies.com is hosting an online Trunk Show… For those of you who follow my blog may have guessed, I have a trunk, closet, house, and garage full of quilts! Lots of them are little… But I have my share of big ones as well.
This little quilt was created for a “Not Square or Rectangle” mini quilt swap on flickr. I used a stained glass pattern, and bias strips for the black. I love this technique!
This little quilt was made for a Chinese Coin Swap on flickr… I used bullion roses to decorate the bottom.
This was for a place mat swap on flickr… (You’ll definitely see a theme here!)
This is a close up of the quilting on a Modern Doll Quilt Swap.
I made this little quilt for the precious baby sitting on it!
And this is me in my tiara, having won the “Recycled Quilt” Challenge for Roy Quilt Guild! The petals are made from Pistachio shells. I drilled holes in them and stitched them on like buttons…
I made this little NYB to swap with one of my friends… She made me 2 applique quilt tops in return!
I made this quilt with scraps for Happy Chemo. I took lots of pictures of it on a looong drive to Northern Montana.
This little snowman quilt was made for a swap on flickr…
I donated this little quilted clock to the Utah State Quilt Guild for a fundraiser.
In Layton, we swapped pre-cut teacups with fusible already applied. We were challenged to bring in our quilts the following month. This is what I came up with!
I know, you’re supposed to love all your children equally, but this is one of my favorite quilts! I was given several of the flower die cuts in Layton Quilt Guild as an on time drawing. I incorporated them into my “Show Stopper” challenge quilt which was supposed to show movement.
This is my Challenge quilt I made for Roy Quilt Guild. It represents “The Power of 13” I was given a fat quarter, and a package of buttons and came up with this design. It has 13 (or multiples) of each item. Plus I quilted 13 on the right hand side.
This was a swap piece that I experimented using micro quilting and fabric paint on… Love the way this came out!
This was a Fair Challenge Quilt summer before last. I used a UFO block I had made in a class in the center and designed the quilt around it.
Who doesn’t love Rat Zombie?! I still see a future in store for him…
I quilted this quilt for Roy Quilt Guild using “Bingo blocks” we had made. I added the white strips on the diagonal.
My claim to fame! (Or infamy as the case may be…) I swapped these house blocks with my friend Silvana over 12 months. When we were finished, I designed the quilt. I’d live here, wouldn’t you?!
Another flickr swap… I designed this myself.
This quilt was for the RJR Landscape Challenge at HMQS this year. It won an honorable mention… I called it “Crayon Canyon”.
This was made using the underwater/beach theme blocks I received in the BBC (Bitty Block Committee) on flickr.
We exchanged fabric colors in a small group that I belong to, “Prairie Fairies”. I put mine together differently for sake of the quilting.
This is this years’ Utah State Fair Challenge Quilt. The challenge fabric is the white with circle designs.
I made this one for a Kaffe Swap on FB.
Just finished this little quilt as a gift…
