What a cold snowy January this year in Ohio. What better time to quilt. I decided on a Five and Dime quilt as done in the tutorials on Missouri Star Quilts. I had some great assistants, Lucy and Paige, granddaughters who helped me arrange the fabrics. One of the best things I did was back it with flannel, it just stays there and doesn't move or shift. Very cozy!

Kayden, my Grandson, has had patience while I worked on his quilt. He picked the quilt out last winter and we did a few blocks together so he could be involved. I just gave him this for his birthday this winter. He said he remembered working on it and he put it on his bed immediately, along with a big smile. This is a little larger than a twin, which I think it too small anyway for kids. They need room to grow.

Lucy decided on a quilt for her day bed. She found a picture and sent it to me. I think I made this mostly from my stash of orange and yellows.

This is the latest purse, it was made specifically for a gift and their favorite color is purple and lavender. I hope this works!

I spotted this purse pattern while on vacation this past summer in Mankato Minn. I gave it a Western or Cowgirl flair with this fabric. It is loaded with pockets and a large front pocket with the slanted cover. The interior is made to hold a tablet along with ample room.
I thought a boy needed a birthday quilt!  He has a new bedroom and I heard him mention he wanted to paint it lime green and grey.  After a long search I am hoping this is what he had in mind. Happy Birthday Thomas!  I hope you like it. I found these fabrics, with help from Connie at the Busy Thimble Quilt Shop in Bowling Green OH.

Star Quilt

I just finished this black and red quilt. Can you believe I made it for myself?  This quilt will go in a spare bedroom on a double bed.  I did an online star block of the month quilt. I tried a new method of quilting as you go so this was a test quilt for me. Thanks to Diana Trost and her great class I took at Sonflower Quilts in Sylvania, OH. Hopefully I get better, I did LEARN what not to do. ;-)  The next quilt is already cut out!
