Inspired By.....

It's time for the Inspired By Quilt Contest to support the Quilt Alliance. Quilters are asked to  make small quilts inspired by quilts found in the Quilt Index or the Q.S.O.S. I didn't make a quilt for the contest, but two contestants were inspired by my quilts! Very flattering. To see the entries and the inspirations click here and here. While there take a look at the other entries and maybe place a bid or two!

Till next time...Happy Stitching!

The Life of a Clamshell

In 1997 I made a quilt for my book Charm Quilts. Since then, I've entered the quilt in the Quilt Index.

This year the Quilt Alliance, one of the Quilt Index partners is having a contest
Inspired By....
Much to my delight, Deb Hathaway chose my quilt as her inspiration. You can see picture of her very cool quilt, Raw Clams at the Shore on her blog here:

Thank you Deb, I hope you win!!!!

Till next time.... Happy Stitching

Quilts for Desi and Evelyn

Here are two quilts that I've recently finished for new babies.

This one is for my bosses daughter, who just had her first baby, a girl, Desi. The gorgeous top was made by my work colleague, Julie Levy-Westin. Not only did she make the beautiful Roman Stripe, but she hand dyed all the fabric. So gorgeous. I machine quilted it. I love the way it turned out.

This quilt was made for my niece Sarah's baby girl Evelyn. Eveyln has two older brothers and made them quilts, too. You can see Zander's here, and Charlie's here. Evelyn's bedroom is decorated in turquoise and pink, so I think this will look good.

Evelyn's room.

Now time to finish my laundry and get back to work on Katy's Stars. Above is the version in EQ7. It is for my daughter's bed. She wants a queen size quilt for her Chicago apartment. Below are all the pieces on my design board.

I'll be machine quilting it in five parts, then putting them together. 

Till next time......Happy Stitching.
