I made this outfit for my dear granddaughter's doll.  I made it out of a piece of leather-like stuff I found in the car department for drying off your car. I think it is called a chamois. It is so soft and works for the project.

This is a quilt that I made and gave to my niece.
my friend calls this quilt a potato chip quilt. I have no idea what the real name of the pattern is.
The center block is 8.5" and the strip that goes around the center block is 2.5". Very easy to make.

Made this for my hubby.

Dresden quilt

Another finished quilt.  This is a dresden quilt and it is made in 30's fabrics.
The quilting on it is stippling around the dresden blocks and ruler work in the blue area. 
There is also a little flower in the corners of the white blocks.  
In the small white border I used a stencil.  In the blue border I done stippling. 
The quilt has a beautiful yellow backing. 
I learned a lot while making this quilt because this was my first attempt at ruler work.
Hope you enjoy.

Another quilt finished.

This quilt was made for a young man that outgrew a quilt that i made him when he was very little. He loves quilts and that makes me soo happy.  I call this my Ocean Quilt.  I saw a similar one on pinterest and is where I got the idea.

Giving this another try..........

I gave up on blogging when I deleted several things but have decided now to try again.
It will be 99% quilting.

 Here is disappearing pinwheel/churndash. It is a Missouri Star pattern from their tutorials.
This was made using leftover fat quarters that I had. The border is batik. It has all the colors of the pinwheel/churndashes in it. This will be so pretty when quilted.  If anyone has ideas for quilting I would  be happy to hear them as I  don't have a idea yet of how I will quilt it.

Hope you had a wonderful and safe weekend.

More quilt pics to come.
