A Few Of My Favorite Quilts

It's actually really hard to pick favorite quilts but I thought I'd show some of my favorite ones that I have made.

This on has so many triangles in it I thought I'd never get it done. I tried to make the border but it didn't fit. It was just easier to bind it. The only thing I hate is how I quilted it.

This one is paper pieced, my first time doing it. I hate paper piecing and avoid it when I can. The pieced border is my own design as the one given was too much of a pain. My aunt and uncle own this quilt.

This is the cheater cathederal windows quilt that I made for my daughter. Everyone was so kind to send tons of blue fabric for it. I did a blanket stitch around each piece. Wow..that was a lot of work.

This is an original design from EQ6. It's machine appliqued and I never want to see circles again.

This is my Lone Star quilt. The last thing I expected were all the ribbons. My aunt and uncle now have the quilt.

Another original design for a bargello quilt. I did this the hard way. I guess the easy way is to make a tube and rotary cut different widths. I did each one by hand as I worked through the quilt.

My "Touching Stars" quilt turned out fabulous. I LOVE this quilt.

Your quilts are ALL gorgeous. I don't do large ones so I always feel inspired by those that do.

Thanks for leaving a comment at my blog. I enjoyed reading through yours.

The only in the way things my dog does in my sewing room is lie on my feet when I am trying to use the foot pedal to my machine and sit on my flimsies when I have them laid out on the floor :)
