My first try at mini quilts! I was so scared to start I called George for support. He was very nice. Said "Have a class of wine, relax." So I did, it was so fun, after I got the hang of it. I also bought his ruler and fabric. There are 30 pieces in each block. Not too bad!

Into the World, Sun and Time
Quilt #: 1020744 Added on 03/01/2012
I love landscape photography. This quilt was inspired by a photo my husband took of a dynamic sky reflected in the water of one of our local parks. It is an impression of a moment in one place at one time. The sky and water are pieced squares on point. I also hand-painted, stamped, appliquéd, and thread-painted the surface of the quilt. The butterfly and flower beads were stitch on by hand.

Made from scraps to try pattern. Decided to try something different for quilting. I couched yarn for the quilting.
Given to a friend just recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Her comment was that the lap robe was full of hugs and good wishes.

My 12 yr old son Noah made this quilt. He has been quilting for 6 years, we really started together. We took an adult class at Vermont Quilt Festival last year with George Sicliliano and Noah love it.
He got permission to compete as an adult in the festival and won a Blue ribbon in Minitures! We are very proud of him

Made for grandaughter's High School graduation. She picked pattern and some of the fabrics. The big challenge was to find the gradations of some of the primary colors.

This quilt went together quickly, I even had some of the same fabrics in my stash. I used 1/4" black bias stitched on with a double needle between the dark and the light values to highlight it more. I used multi-colored thread on the black border and on the dark parts. Made for a wedding gift and named for the recipient.

Using mostly fabrics I owned in my stash, I constructed this quilt using paper piecing and template piecing. I started it as an experiment and loved it. I gave it to my son, Dan, who loves the color and design. It stayed with me while he was a college student, and now lives with him.

This was my first large quilt. I made it for the Ugly Quilt Contest at one of my local quilt shops. We were given four - 1 yard pieces of fabric (mine were orange, blue, green and magenta/teal/orange/lime green checked) and challenged to make a quilt that looked like we CHOSE those fabrics. The quilt had to have all 4 fabrics in the top, and the 75% of the top must consist of the "ugly" fabric.

This quilt is an adaptation of the pattern “Jalousie” by Alethea Ballard. My friend Kelly bought the fabric in Paris and challenged me to use it in a quilt. It took me several years to find the right pattern. The center is quilted on an Innova long arm machine, while the border was quilted on my home machine.
