Poppy's quilt, with blocks from members of the 3x6 bee.

Neptune table runner

Neptune small quilt. After I bought a bundle of someone's  scraps,
I tortured them into smaller scraps while trying (and failing) to create something
worthy of this awesome fabric. Still, I love it.

Chris's quilt. I used the rest of the blocks from 2010's Bento Box,
and made a lap quilt for my nephew's Christmas present.
Flannel backing, FMQ.


African rayon dashiki fabric turned into a  churn dash quilt.
Slippery to work with!

Christmas Sampler. Stitch-in-the-ditch quilting,
with some big-stitch hand quilting for embellishment.

on my domestic sewing machine.

I love this variation of the shoofly block!

Bento Box pattern, still not enough contrast!
Fabric from upcycled shirts, from a friend whose husband used to 
wear Hawaiian shirts for his job at Trader Joe's.
FMQ in all-over meander stitch.

I used every fabric in my stash, and asked my sisters to
send fabric, so every windmill is different.
The black and white, polka dot binding is great with all the colors.

Blogged here and here.
Fun fabrics, fun project!
Just wish I'd made it bigger!

Playing with fall colors, and alternating blocks
for a setting that evokes falling leaves.
FMQ veins on the leaves. 

Sweet little baby quilt!
Wonky stars scattered asymmetrically
on a solid background.

Still need to work on contrast!
These two Star in Star quilts were Christmas gifts for my nieces.
I followed a pattern in a book, then used scraps to make the borders.
(Notice the hst border that just joins randomly at the corners.)


In response to a friend's project,
small, unfilled covers for girls in Cambodia resisting the sex trade.
Fused letters say "Beloved."
First try at piecing. Concept is good, but more contrast is needed.
I used hand-me-down fabric, and sheets.

With a layer of flannel as batting,
this was my interpretation of stars in the night sky. 

My wonky square weren't very wonky,
but I like the use of different yellows in the background.

Playing with pattern alternating blocks.
Still need to learn about contrast!

And to learn about taking pictures!
