Susanne
Bavaria, Germany
"...Some Ladies from my Quilting-Group in Landshut (that’s in Bavaria , Germany ) tried to sew it. It’s fantastic for beginners, because every month they can learn another technique. Thank you for the pattern!...~Susanne"

Birgit
Hanover, Germany
I like her variation!

Doris
(Pollyanna on Quilting Passion Forum)
"...I skipped the beautiful flying geese border and added traditional borders--one, in order to make it a queen-sized quilt and two, to make it a bit more masculine.  It is for my son as a Christmas gift...~Doris"

Janet
In Idaho
Love it in shades of Red!!  I also noticed on Janet's blog, http://idahoquilter.blogspot.com, that she also used the "divide & conquer" method of machine quilting sections rather than a whole quilt at once.  Nice work, Janet!

Shogi-Heike
Germany
From a quilting sister in Germany--a great job!  I like the blue border.  She also downsized the pattern to smaller blocks.  Checkout her blog at http://shogi-heike.blogspot.com .

Rejane
Brazil
A wonderful job by a quilting sister in Brazil !  She has a lot of nice photos on her blog as well, http://sacodegatos5513.blogspot.com/ .

Kitty Letsch

"...Your pattern certainly inspired to get a quilt done right to the end...~Kitty"

Gail

Gail was an early bird with her project!  Great job, Gail !

STARLIGHT SAMPLER

Lucille Lozier

She added an additional border on the outside to show off the points a little better. -- It should have a ribbon on it!

Vicki Rogers 
Ponca City, Oklahoma
I've had this picture for a while, and stumbled upon it recently, and asked myself, "Is this on the Guest Gallery, where it should be?"  She did a beautiful job!

Nina Thoren

LONE STAR BASICS:

Julie Farver
Julie made this quilt in a class taught by Christine Holloway (who did the machine quilting).  This is great!

NITE-NITE EXPRESS:

Sue Heinlein
"...I staged a marathon quilting session this weekend.  It took me about 30 hours but I got it done - just in time for DJ to get home from the hospital!  I'm planning on making the wall hanging later, with plastic over the cars so she can use it to store binkies, thermometers, and the like..."

Great idea, Sue!  And Sue's version is 4 trains with three "components".  Like it!

 

Cathy Hildebrand
".......It was a challenge, but so rewarding,......."

Great Job, Cathy!!

Pat Katnik I, and II
Georgia
SUPER JOB, PAT!

Barbara Crowson
Illinois
       ....
After making Penguins Play I decided to get brave and make Nite Nite Express for my grandson, Zane who is crazy about trains and anything Thomas.  He will be 3 in July and this is his present.  I am really pleased with how it turned out.  The only problem is I am having trouble waiting until his birthday to give it to him.......BC

This is great, Barb!--Especially considering you only started quilting 6 months ago! WOW!

SLASH YOUR STASH!

Valerie Bradley's
Decisions/Decisions

(she calls it "True Blue)
Valerie adjusted her block to a smaller size and made this wonderful boy's crib quilt.

Cheri's Twinklers
Victor, New York
...Here is my "Twinklers" quilt I made for my 27 year old son, Devon. It
was made as part of an "exchange" with 5 of my quilting friends. We
each cut enough for 42 blocks and the border and then packaged
everything up and divided everything by 6. When I started making mine I
decided to increase it to 72 blocks so I cut more... but it was SO much
fun getting to work with fabrics from other people...
thanks for a great pattern!...--Cheri 
It's GORGEOUS, Cheri!

And here's another of Cheri's---this time small and pastels!

Texas Jan's Twinklers
Greenville, Texas

Pat Dearth's "Twinklers"
Florida
...
"I made this quilt for my daughter for Christmas, she works in a communications center and and keep it very cold there.  So she asked me to make her a lap quilt to take to work with her.  I made this all out of my scrap box and used your TWINKLER pattern to make it....She was very pleased with it, I backed it with flannel to make it very cozy..."---Pat Dearth.
She does looked pleased, Pat!  Good Job!

Sue Wilson's "Decisions/Decisions"
Tulsa, Ok
Sue brought this into Just Quilt It to show on Sunday Sampler day.  She has some hand quilting in mind.  Good Job, Sue!

Tracey McKearney's "City Streets"

...I wanted to share a photo of the "Twin" Size quilts I made for my 4 year
old Twin Boys. I used your pattern Short and Scrappy "City Streets" and it was  perfect for an easy, useable quilt for two very active boys! :-) Thank you so much for sharing your pattern ideas on your website. Your website is a great resource for quilters---- Tracy McKearney

"I have had fun making your scrappy quilts.  Thanks for the free
patterns!  I have used donated fabrics for all of them and will
donate the 3 quilts to charities.  I am attaching photos (note I chose not to put borders on, and
made them smaller than yours.. they were very easy to adapt)."--Carol Egan

Sarah Davis' "City Streets"
 
Sarah was surprised by just how many scraps she managed to use up making this quilt for her sister.  Good Job!

HERE, KITTY, KITTY Mystery

Sandy Smith's 
& Sandy's Close-Up 

It took me a while to finally get it done (so many other projects circling the sewing room waiting their turn to land) I must confess however, I changed the pattern a bit, due to necessity. I got started on this quit, then had to put it aside for a while and in doing so I made too many of one of the blocks. So........I played around with your layout with the extra blocks I had and came up with this version. I also had a different kitty block I liked and used for the center. I also added extra borders so it would be big enough for my double bed, where this beauty now resides!
 
This is the first really scrappy quilt I have made, and I am very pleased with how it turned out....Sandy
