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
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.
These are just some of many, of course. We will be adding more as time goes by, so check back often. Thanks for your time!!
