Catching Up and Digging In

Today I bring you photographic evidence of the list I wrote in the post below. Herewith I present my quilts ...

Kittens & Posies - the orange inner border is a bright orange silk velvet and the spokes (leaves) are made from silk chiffon backed with fusible interfacing for stability.

Artful Rag Quilt - Black Flannel with b&w prints and a variety of colors. Lots of fun and learning.

Ticker Tape Doll quilt for a niece. These are so easy, bright and fun to make.

Quilt I made and designed to celebrate my parents 50th anniversary. I sent out squares of hand-dyed fabric with gel pens for important people to trace their hands and write a special message for my parents inside. I cut out the hand "prints" and appliqued them to the quilt top.

Here is a detail of the hands ...

The back of a rag quilt I made for my niece when she graduated from high school.  I never did get a photo of the front.  She immediately named this quilt, "The Babymaker" so it shall be called :) 

 Another niece who graduated from high school and her quilt.  It was a busy year :)  This quilt is called Lady of Lake Champlain because this niece spends quite a bit of time on Lake Champlain.  The quilt design is Marcia Hohn's Lady of the Lake 2 from her Quilter's Cache.

It's Been A Really, Really Long Time

Judging from the content here on my blog, I've been dormant. Nothing could be further from the truth! I've been really busy ... quilting. Teaching. Friending (is that a word?). Parenting. Etc.

I've finished and distributed several of the quilts listed on that list in my previous post. I've started (and finished!) some additional quilts. I created a studio. I've learned a lot.

Here's a brief list of the quilts I've finished in the last year and a half ...

Kaffe Snowballs
Amber's Graduation Memories
Tristan's Rags
Kittens & Posies
A Scrap quilt for Miriam
Lady of Lake Champlain (Leah)
The Baby Maker (Aleana)
Orient Express (Lauren)

I think there were more ... but that's all I can remember off the top of my head.
