After doing several animals, I wanted to use the Stained Glass Applique Technique to do faces.

The first one I did was of President John F. Kennedy.
It measures 40" x 41" and the price is $1,400.00

The second quilt was made from a picture of an Afghan girl
that appeared on the front of National Geographic quite a long time ago.

It measures 37 1/2" x 54"
The price is $1,400.00

Both these quilts have hung in several major quilt shows.

Here is another of the quilts that will be shown at the Woodford County Library next month.

This is a quilt I made after taking a class with Diane Hire.
It is a very personal quilt, as under the plain yellow piece that looks like a pocket is a picture of me as a child. Inside one of the dangling pieces is a gadget that plays These are a Few of my Favorite Things, and on the hand at the top is a giant emerald button to signify my engagement and wedding.

At this point in my Quilting career I have decided to put prices on my quilts (at least some of them) and offer them for sale. I will be posting new pictures along with prices. This one is Not For Sale as it is too personal, but the one I posted earlier named Free at Last, is for sale at the price of $450.00.

Quilt Show

I have been trying to post these photo's for a while now, and it seems Blogger has had a problem. I'm so glad it is fixed.

Starting in June I am going to have a show at the Woodford County Library. In planning this I am going to be showing some pieces that were done some time ago. So, I thought it might be interesting to share this with the general public.

This is a piece I did after taking a class from Phil Beaver. It was done with fabric paint first, then I cut out butterfly
shapes from an old shower curtain and layed them on the wet fabric in the sunshine. When it was dry it left the butterfly shapes lighter than the background paint.

While quilting this piece I used a lot of Sulky shimmer threads plus seqins and iron on crystals.

Sally and Bagel

Let me intoduce you to my babies. The dark Beagle is named Bagel, and the brown and white one is named Sally.
They are always together, even when one has to visit the vet, I have to take them both.

Sadly, Sally has congestive heart desease, and it has progressed a lot this last year. She has had a good long life, as she will soon be 12 years old.

This is a Scribbles tee shirt that I drew for a friend in Calif. She has been invited to be on the garden tour this year and she wanted something to wear when people come to visit her beautiful garden.
