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).

#35.  Pretty-Boy Peacocks - March, 2003.  Had this one in the back of my brain for a while.  Just getting it to move to the front was all it took.  Very simple basically.  But it's not for the beginning quilter.  It has a whole lot of "y" seams.  But once you get past that, it's kinda' fun!  Just 8 blocks set on point on a black background.  I used bright, outlandish batik fabrics.  Some of the batiks were the Key West line with metallic qualities.  I'm planning to hand quilt this with lots and lots of feathers in the borders.  48" x 65". No-template piecing, available to purchase pattern.  You can also order a KIT for this top including all the fabrics and the pattern on the Misc 4 Sale page. Update 7/20/03:  Well, obviously, I didn't hand quilt it.  But I do have it's "sister" quilt on the frame to hand quilt now.  You might get to see it in a year or two, ha!  The sister quilt is Maggie Walker's creamy background feathery print, and I used wild, feathery-looking fabrics for the plumage, and a delicious peacock blue feather fabric for the borders.  I have managed to sneak in, as of today, about 1 hour of quilting on it.  It will be a lesson of self-discipline to get it completed.

Update:  7/20/03

The lovely girls at C & C Quilting here in Tulsa did the machine quilting on this quilt.  Here's the outcome, and I hope you can see the detail.  It's spectacular in person.

I know, it's hard to see

lots of feathers!

#36.  Short N' Scrappy, Plaid Mad - March, 2003.  First in a series of 7 scrappy patterns that have really kept me occupied the past few months.  I used leftover plaids, light and dark, in a simple basic pattern.  Used a brushed cotton on the back of this one and it really made it nice and soft.  Think I'll do that on the rest of them too.  Sometimes machine quilting tends to make a quilt stiff, but this one has a nice drape to it.

Here's a closer view of the machine quilting on it, called "Oak Morning" I believe.

#37.  Short N' Scrappy - Decisions, Decisions - March, 2003.  The second quilt in the scrappy series.  Kind of an optical illusion pattern.  Very simple block.  Used up all my blue scraps on this one.  It was so fun and sooo easy.  Had it machine quilted with a "cotton candy" pattern.

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!!
