Not the first quilt I started, but the first I ever finished, for my lovely Grandma Elly. She adored it, showed it proudly to visitors, and eventually drew her last peaceful breath underneath it. I am grateful it gave her joy and comfort.
Quilt of colorful, vintagey pinwheels for my lovely elderly friend, Agnes. Finished size: 58″ x 58″.
The first quilt I ever made and finished just for me. At 56″ x 56″ it is a bit short for me to nap under (though fine for sitting and watching TV with), and I have plans and fabrics to make a longer version.
I made this quilt for my husband for our 16th anniversary. It was the first quilt I designed from scratch. Circles are appliqued onto the four-square blocks, and the tool theme on the fabrics seemed perfect for him. He adores it. (Click to enlarge to a clearer image.)
Not a great image, for which I apologize. I made this for my parents, and I believe the size finished at about 64″ by 72.” I needed to accommodate my daddy’s 76″ height, after all. Fabrics from Basic Grey were selected to go with their decor.
I made this for my lovely friend Michelle as a wallhanging. Its proportions grew past my original plan however, and on a cold day at work, she could probably cover herself quite comfortably with it LOL! I forget exactly, but believe it’s close to five feet long.
My Sunshine State quilt, inspired by my childhood memories of Florida… dinners at Howard Johnson’s, watching the Miami Dolphins, and days and days of dazzling colors outdoors. This generously covers my twin-sized bed. (Click to enlarge to a clearer image.)
For my dear friend’s graduation… designed to capture her love of horses and farming.
