Quilts of 2011

My year-end review of quilts I completed in 2011. Midnight Stars was a quilt-a-long offered by Lori of Humble Quilts. Her directions are easy to follow and I look forward to her next project in 2012.

This is "Four Flowerpots" currently hanging in my kitchen. It is the result of a challenge from my weekly quilting group.

"Baby Steps" now belongs to my 6-week-old great-nephew, Eli.

"Mini Diamonds" is made from my vast collection of nineteenth-century reproduction fabrics.

"Vintage Nine-Patch" started as eight very humble, old nine-patch blocks given to me by my friend, Linda.

"Animal Alphabet Games" was a panel I hand-quilted for my great-nephew, Mason.

"Winter Scraps" is a folk-art table topper I made for my brother and sister-in-law.

December 1st

Inspired by Lori of Humble Quilts, I made this festive table topper designed by Cheri and featured in the current issue of Primitive Quilts magazine. The pattern called for cotton and wool fabric but I didn't have any wool so I used all cotton. The appliqued shapes and "pennies" are fused. I may quilt it using perle cotton, not sure yet.
