Today I thought it might be fun to show you a few quilts I've made. Think of it as a little sunshine on a cold and cloudy day!

This is a Pat Sloan design that I made for my daughter for Christmas. A little personal message on the back says: "May you always be in your Happily Ever After Place." Best compliment of all - she got teary-eyed when she opened up the gift.
This is the quilt that's on my bed right now. I called this one: BIG QUILT OF MANY 2" SQUARES. It should be obvious how the name was picked. For a year, I sew pairs of 2" squares together in between many other projects. This is a Bonnie Hunter technique called: leaders and enders. In the end: a queen-sized quilt that sort of felt like a bonus! Except for the borders - all scraps.
This last quilt spoke to me the minute I saw it. It's hard to see in the photo. Tomorrow I'll try to upload a large picture. Those sweet little kitty faces were just to hard to resist. I pieced this quilt in 2008 but finally got it quilted last month. Now it hangs in my studio and makes me smile. Hope you enjoyed the mini quilt show!

Beautiful quilts Mary. Do you quilt them on your machine, or by hand?
