My Quilts

I don't make a lot of quilts anymore.  It takes a lot of time and I don't have as much as I used to.  I thought I would share the ones I have made. 

I tend to stick to chains, Double and Triple Irish Chains are my favorites.  I like scrappy quilts, but it's been a long time since I made one.  Here are a couple of my latest quilts.

Ian's Quilt

Ian's quilt took me about a year and a half to finish.  Ian is my 14 year old son.  He wanted one so badly, I had to make it for him. :)  I had a friend quilt it for me. She has a long-arm quilting machine and did a simple meander over the top.

The top is made of batiks and a Fossil Fern by Benartex. The back is made of Minkee. Minkee is a wonderful, soft fleece-type fabric and makes a warm quilt. Ian won't be cold this winter!  The batting is Hobbs 80/20, which gives it a bit of loft.  I used to use only Warm & Natural, but I was looking for something warmer with some loft.

Sarah's Quilt

Sarah is my niece. She got married on Sept 3, 2005. I made her this quilt which is, of course, another chain.  The flower fabric is Lakehouse. I love Lakehouse fabrics!  The back is cotton.  I quilted this myself on my Bernina.
