You May Want to Go Get Yours

Ok, gang, got a cup of coffee ready?  Hope these JPEG's didn't take too long for you to download.  I'll try to provide a picture and description of each quilt, approximate date and pertinent and "unpertinent" info with each.  Also, let me remind you that all my stuff is copyrighted and I can get really cranky if I find anyone selling or misusing my designs (and so can my attorney).

#28.  Claudia's Nickel Cobblestone - Oct., 2002

    This one is ALL MINE!! Until I give it to somebody, that is.  That's usually what happens to my quilts.  I enjoy them for a while, and end up giving them as gifts to either relatives or friends.  I am especially fond of this one, though. So I may keep it a good long while before that happens. 
    This was made from 5" sample squares I collect from Hancocks/Paducah online.  Each month they automatically send me 30 - 40 5" sample squares of new fabrics coming out.  I have amassed quite a few of these squares, so I'm expecting to make more of these cobblestone beauties.
    I put inside borders and outside borders on this one and appliqued flowers and vines with fusible web.  I don't normally use that method, but was wanting to get it done quickly.  Next time, I'll do one by hand applique. I wanted a dark gray background, but couldn't find just the right shade.  So I overdyed a light gray marbly fabric with just a little black dye in the washer and obtained just the color I wanted.  I think the next one will probably be done in pastels or maybe all batiks.  It's pattern is available on the pattern page.  Also available in 3 other straight settings, 1 on point, and 1 baby size on point.

#29.  Jungle Lone Star - Oct., 2002

    This was a project done for my daughter-in-law.  Well, actually, she wanted it to give to her sons' babysitter for her birthday.  When she asked me, I said, "No problem!  I'll work it in!"  What was I thinking?  Then I was told she wanted one king size, and she liked wild animal prints.  Ooookay.  I was inspired by a quilt I saw in Jan Krentz' Lone Star Quilts & Beyond.  Decided I didn't have time for all those little stars, so I used BIG pieces instead.  And wild prints!  I used zebra and tiger print strips on the sides of the large diamonds for the effect in the center.  I bought 1/4 Yards of all kinds of jungle animal prints - tiger, zebra, cheetah, leopard, snake, alligator.  Tried to define the sections with strips of the turquoise African print.  Fussy cut some wild animals and appliqued those in the four corner blocks.  I think I like it!  I just hope she can sleep under it ok.

#30.  Kenny's Quilt - Oct., 2002

    This is the 3rd little train quilt I have made for grandsons. (1 more to go)  This one is for the youngest's 2nd birthday.  His older brother has one just like it, except a larger twin size.  Now he'll have one just like bubba's.
