Bunco Sunflowers Quilt

I made this little table runner for a Bunco gift in April 2013.   The theme was Spring.   

Sister's Choice Quilt

I wanted to use up all of my 9 patch blocks that have been made for me by members of my friendship groups.   I think I had over 200 4.5" blocks and have made 3 quilts using these blocks.   I just had a small pile left so wanted to finish the 9 patch blocks.   I used all but 2 in this quilt!   It was inspired by Bonnie Hunter who has been working on her Sister's Choice recently on her blog.   I washed it in the machine when it was finished so it has a nice wrinkly look to it and I like it.    

Kathleen's Block

One of the ladies in my guild,  Kathleen Bond,  asked me last month if I would do a block for her.  She handed me a small block with a basket machine appliqued on it.  She asked that I add anything I wanted to the basket and return it to her next month after signing it.    So,  I added some flowers and a heart to the basket.   I think it turned out really cute.  Hopefully, I'll get a picture of the entire quilt when she gets it finished.   

In Stitches Patriotic Row Quilt

In 2011, In Stitches did a row exchange that had to be red/white/blue.   Each person made a row (all identical) for every one else in the group that wanted to participate.  Seven members participated.    I tore some of the rows apart to make my quilt so left 4 intact for the borders and rearranged the others for the center.   Finished on 3/25/13.  This quilt is 42" x 55".
