Sprinkles. This is a Jaybird Quilts pattern, which I increased the size of the pieces to make it lap sized rather than baby sized. I made this for a young friend, who had completely worn out her existing quilt, which also had 6 pointed stars, and she really wanted 6 pointed stars again. .
She had given her Mom and I some ideas as to her favorite colors and a bit of a color inspiration in the form of a poster, and her Mom did an amazing job of pulling colors from that poster

She used really cute fabrics in this one.
The second quilt has lots of floral fabrics, and so Heather chose a freehand floral design for this one.
Lots of work went into the piecing of this one, making the points all match.

Keystone Modern Creative's website, I just had to have it. The pattern is Fractal by Patti Carey
I've long had a bargello on my list of quilts to make, because my Nana (my Dad's Grandma) used to do bargello needle point, and I've got a pillow made of bargello needlepoint my Aunt made me (which I absolutely loved as a kid). But, a bargello is a lot of work, and so this one really struck my fancy. I also really liked that the background fabric goes between each column on this pattern, and the rainbow sealed the deal.

Pieces of My Heart quilt for an anniversary gift for someone special in her life.
Christina Cameli's combined designs that Marilyn had spotted on my instagram when I took the class and posted my practice piece--she asked then if that could go on her quilt. I was happy to oblige. It's maybe a little easier to see on the backing.

Linda made this awesome hourglass quilt with some Jen Kingwell fabrics. Lots of texture in the fabrics. She said it was a little challenging with the stretchy weave of some of them, but it turned out great.
Linda chose a light custom quilting to highlight the piecing.
Linda gave this quilt to some very lucky family members. I think she was tempted to keep it for herself.
The quilting created a very interesting pattern on the backing.

This is the second Elvira quilt I've made. Elvira was a one day sew along Gudrun Elra hosted back in March 2020. I saw a version on facebook with a unified dark background and really liked it, so made this one.
Christina Cameli, and one of the exercises she had us do was draw a few shapes, and then take each one of those shapes and try to turn them into an Edge to Edge design. I really liked this one when I drew it, so stitched it out here. I am pleased with the process and the results.

The Ivory backing is a bit special for that Aunt too. Years ago she had a very white parka, and I was always amazed she could keep it clean and white--I'm a bit more like Peanuts Pig Pen so she always impressed me with her white parka, and white sweaters, and white pants.
