My grandmother taught me how to sew when I was in the third grade, and I have been sewing ever since. I made my first two quilts when I was 16. My career as a lawyer kept me away from my favorite hobby for a number of years, but semi-retirement six years ago gave me much more time to quilt. I have made and given away many quilts and look forward to making many more.
I live in a smoke-free, one cat home in a suburb of Atlanta.

Beach Toys
Size: 49.5 x 60.5 inches (Lap/Throw Size)
Description: If you love the beach, you will like this quilt. It has center squares using a cute black fabric with colorful beach toys on it. The rest of the fabrics coordinate with the greens and blues in the center squares. The middle squares are surrounded by a light green fabric with darker green vines on it and by a solid green fabric. I also used a pale blue fabric with darker blue vines on it. The sashing is a two-tone cream with flowers on it, along with a royal blue fabric with white dots. Note the corner detail - it gives the quilt a framed effect. I used a double binding hand-sewn on the back for added durability. The backing is a soft, cuddly bleached muslin. I am really happy with the way the colors blend and contrast in this quilt. All the fabrics have been prewashed and dried to ensure color fastness and reduce shrinkage.
Technique: Machine Pieced. Machine quilted following the design of the squares and sashing.
Fabrics: 100% Cotton. Polyester Thread.
Batting: Soft ín Crafty® Polyester.

Butterfly Fun

 
Butterfly Fun
Size: 35 x 44.5 inches. (Child, Wall, Lap/Throw Size)
Description: This sweet quilt is full of butterflies and soft colors. Not only are there butterflies in the center squares, there are etchings of butterflies on the purple fabric, as well as etchings of flowers. It is made up of squares from the Kingís Crown block pattern. I used six fabrics in the quilt. My favorite is the butterfly fabric for the center squares. It has butterflies in many pastel colors and has a lovely sparkle to the fabric, which doesnít show up in the pictures. There are also three aqua fabrics: one solid, one with swirling white dots, and one with pale aqua flowers on white (the border). The inside yellow squares are a solid, and the purple fabric has white etchings with a batik look. The binding is hand sewn on the back of the quilt. It is quilted following the block and sashing pattern lines. The back is bleached muslin. This is my personal favorite for the back, as it is so soft and cuddly. All the fabrics have been prewashed and dried to ensure color fastness and reduce shrinking.
Technique: Machine Pieced. Machine Quilted.
Fabrics: 100% Cotton. The thread is polyester.
Batting: Soft ín Crafty (R) Polyester

Morning Glory Stars
Size: 54.5 x 54.5 inches (Lap/Throw Size)
Description: This quilt has center squares using a fabric with pretty blue flowers with green leaves on it that remind me of Morning Glory flowers. The pictures make the leaves look more yellow than they actually are. They are really a light green. The rest of the fabrics that complete the stars are a variety of blues and greens and a two-toned cream. There are several light blues and a blue-and-black checked fabric. The sashing has a white background with pale blue checks, hearts and stars surrounded by a solid blue fabric on each side. The squares in the sashing are a two-toned dark green. The outside border consists of three different fabrics: a dark blue with darker blue crisscrosses, a royal blue with white dots, and a green fabric with dark blue circles. The binding is a coordinating striped fabric which is hand-sewn on the back. The backing is the same royal blue and white dots as in the border. All the fabrics have been prewashed and dried to ensure color fastness and reduce shrinkage.
Technique: Machine Pieced. Machine quilted following the design of the blocks, sashing, and border.
Fabrics: 100% cotton with the possible exception of the solid blue fabric used as a border in the sashing. This was a gift and is either all cotton or a cotton/poly blend. The thread is polyester.
Batting: Soft ín Crafty® Polyester
Care: Wash in cold water on the gentle cycle. Fluff dry on the low setting, then air dry.
Price: $ 400.00 U.S. + Shipping & Insurance - and Handling, if using PayPal

Shooting Stars

Shooting Stars
Size: 44.5 x 52 inches (Child or Lap/Throw Size)
Description: This quilt is all about stars. It is made up of 30 blocks from the Friendship Star pattern. Also, the red fabric has adorable shooting stars with little tails on them. Please look at the additional pictures to get a closeup of this cute fabric. With all the bright colors, this would be a really fun quilt for a childís room or a playroom. In addition to the red star fabric, there are two teal fabrics. The teal in the square blocks is a solid, and the teal on the border has a teal background with tiny, lighter, teal vines and leaves. Please note that the pictures make the teals look more blue than they really are. The final fabric on the top is a soft yellow with lighter yellow swirls on it. The closeup in the additional pictures shows it the most clearly and is the most true to its actual color. The quilting follows the block and sashing patterns. The binding is hand sewn on the back for a pretty finish. The back is made of cotton muslin. This is my personal favorite for quilt backs because it is so soft and cuddly. All fabrics have been pre-washed and dried. The red fabric has been treated with vinegar and washed several times to prevent bleeding (reds are famous for bleeding).
Technique: Machine Pieced. Machine Quilted.
Fabrics: 100% Cotton. Thread used for the piecing is 100% polyester, while the thread used for the quilting is 100% cotton.
Batting: Soft ín Crafty (R) Polyester
