My latest project. Can’t decide if it’s done (about 45″ square) as a wall hanging or if I’ll make it float on a solid color as a bed-sized quilt. I’ve been thinking it would float surrounded by Kona Cotton Espresso. Thoughts?
One of my first quilting attempts about 5 years ago from a photo much older than that. The picture is of my kids (the two little ones) with my brother’s boys on a family trip to Lake Tahoe. I loved creating the shapes of their little bodies, clothing and hair. The two middle boys are now well over 6 feet tall and both taller than the oldest on the left. And my daughter is now a tall beauty herself! I gave this to my mom, the “Gran Gran” and “DooDa” of all four kids.
Posting some things I made a while back in 2012 as gifts for family and friends. Everyone loves a portrait of their dog!
Still working on this one – I’m hand quilting it (my first attempt at hand vs machine quilting.) I used scrap slivers from another project. When it came together it reminded me of the NASA photos of space, hence the name.
I made this giant top about two years ago. The colored blocks are made from the leftover squares I’d cut to create a pixel quilt (from a photo of my daughter, Adrienne, dancing on the beach at sunset – below). The small blocks are variations on 9-patch and look like little flags to me. My sister in law loved it and I promised to finish it for her and my brother. A year later I am still finishing it…
I love how this turned out and will be glad that it will have a good home soon!
Update: Flags finally gifted to the Woodruffs July 2017!
Top is done! So excited to finish this for a special young couple who recently tied the knot. Would you believe – I had all this fabric on hand in my stash? Love that black and white!
