Country Baskets

We bought a new bed & I made this quilt for the bed. I had not sewn much with yellows before this. I liked the sunny yellows and the brown baskets.

 

Garden Pinwheel Quilt

The blocks in this quilt were hand appliqued. I took it on many trips & sewed as we traveled. Then they were put away for a long time. When I pulled them out again I had an idea on how to put them together.

Recently  I entered this quilt in the Empire Quilt Fest, NY & won a third place ribbon!

Goldfinches in Spring

I recently entered this quilt in the Empire Quilt Fest 2014 in NY. The theme of the show was Things with Wings. I have lots of birds who visit my feeders each day, including Gold Finches. Their yellow feathers are like a bit of sunshine.

The wall hanging is cotton but I wanted the birds to stand out so I made them in wool.
