Class Sampler quilt for a class that I taught for beginning quilters. The individual block samples that I used in class were with very traditional reproduction fabrics to show the variety of outcomes for the same patterns.

Goose in the Pond and a block from the top... waiting to be quilted.

Rag quilts are so warm and snuggly. Not something you need much in Arizona! But I love them anyway.
The bright green quilt was the first one I ever made. It is a Stack and Whack with frog fabrics. My step-daughter loved green and frogs at the time, it was for her - I still have to put the binding on it! Hopefully, she'll get it soon! She's an adult now and probably isn't as excited about frogs.

Underground Railroad Quilt pattern by Eleanor Burns. This is the sample I made for a year long class I taught. We met once a month.

These tops haven't been quilted. I was making them for samples for kid's classes that I was developing when I was put on bedrest for baby Peren. (Now 4 year old Peren wants me to finish the red one because she loves the little heart fabric.)
The red and white quilted posted above is the same pattern as this one.

The blue and yellow sunflower quilt was a class sample for a Kids Quilt Class that I taught. The flannel one underneath is the Hayseed pattern from Country Threads. It was also a class sample that I made

This quilt top is from a Mystery Quilt class that I took one day. It was a lot of fun.... but way outside my comfort zone. I like to know exactly how things are going to turn out and with a mystery quilt you just don't know until near the end how things are going to be. At the end of the class we found out the name of the quilt is On the Road Again by Debbie Cafferty. I'm planning on quilting it with dark blue thread in the quarter square triangle blocks.

Quilts from the Past

Eva and I made this one together. She loves black!
The Heart Crazies one below is a class sample I made using the Buggy Barn pattern.

I made these several years ago, BP (Before Peren) and thought that I'd post them to have a record of some of my past work. I'm trying to finish a stack of UFO's (Unfinished Objects) and I'll post them as they are completed. Sorry for the angle of the pictures. My quilt hanging supplies have gotten misplaced in our last couple of moves.
