My sisters quilt...

Earlier this year a few of us decided to do a quilt together.
So fun.
So pretty.
So wonderful to have quilt sisters.

A little bit of Texas going to Korea

We have some friends that are from Korea and she is going home for her sisters wedding.  I wanted to send a gift to both of their parents.... something that represented Texas but was easy to pack.  Table runners were the perfect answer!

The pictures don't show very well (I didn't think to do a close up in my not-so-good multi-tasking day) but the blue material has a cowboy rope pattern throughout and the red one is a funky cowboy fabric.

The backing is what really says Texas....

Angel quilt

My good friend recently lost her daughter and I wanted to do something for their family.  I had been thinking of this design for some time...

There are five children in the family.  The blue and green represent their two boys, the cream row represents their daughter that passed away and the pink and purple rows are for their other two girls.  The yellow binding represents the mom and dad and their strength in binding their family together.   The quilting in the middle section is the cathedral window pattern and the border has angels all around.

A big thanks to all my friends that helped with fabric and putting the top together!

Pinwheels & Rectangles

Another unfinished quilt finally finished! Pinwheels & Rectangles is from a pattern designed by Eleanor Burns. I finished the top last year, but just now got around to having it quilted by Cathy. The light green pinwheels don't show up very well in this picture, but this quilt is really very pretty.
