Gift

Image
My sister, Linda Huntrods made this quilt for a friend for Christmas a few years ago.

Snowman

Image
Since we're getting snow here, I'll send a picture of a little snowman wallhanging that my sister, Linda Huntrods made. I think we both made these at the same time because I remember making a few. It was a pattern by Debbie Mumm.

Lindsay's Quilt

Image
My daughter, Lindsay designed this quilt when she was 5 years old. I taped squares of fabric down to the table, then she used fabric pens to draw on them. She picked out every colour in the sashing, setting squares and middle block. She drew the heart that's in the centre, I made an applique of her drawing.
I wrote down what she wanted to say on each picture, but the last block is her signature and date.
It has an environmental theme- we shouldn't be littering, we need to save the planet from garbage.

Mystery Quilt

Image
This was made with one of the Judy Hopkins mystery quilt patterns. It's not quilted yet, if I need it for a gift sometime, then I can get busy and finish it.
I seem to make a lot of quilts with purple and black in them, not everybody likes purple in their house because it doesn't go with their decor. Too bad, they just won't get a quilt then, lol!

Birthday Block Exchange

Image
I was in a birthday block exchange with the Quilters Funtalk internet group in 1998.
I made this quilt with all the signature blocks that I received.
A few of the people in the group have passed away since then, this quilt is a very special keepsake.

Baby Quilt

Image
My friend, Cathy made this quilt for my daughter, Lindsay when whe was born in 1987.
Original design- great idea!

Quilts For Cats

Image
My sister, Linda Huntrods makes some quilts for cats at the SPCA every Christmas and also drops off a big bag of cat food at the same time.

Donation Quilt

Image
This is a seven year old UFO that I finally finished last night. I found it a little while ago in a pile of boxes when I was sorting out my stash, it only needed the binding stitched down. At the time, I went on to another project and forgot about this one- yikes! Oh well, it's done now, it'll be given it to our guild to put in the stockpile. We give quilts to sick kids in the community. Luckily, we haven't had to give many away over the past several years, we would rather have people be in good health! After I saw the picture on the computer, I realized the bug jar block wasn't facing the right way when I got somebody to hold the quilt up for me.

Table Runner

Image
I made this table runner last year, it isn't quilted yet. It might end up being used for a gift this Christmas, so I better get busy and finish it. A big thank you to Quiltbug.com for the free pattern!

Guild Challenge

Image
Our guild had a challenge one time where a quilt had to be made based on a saying. My sister, Linda Huntrods made this pillow as her entry. The title is "Madder Than a Setting Hen". It is made with the crazy quilt method, using fancy fabrics like velvet.

Chickens

Image
These chickens are made with hand applique and hand embroidery. I experimented with swirly, rich looking prints on top of plaids and checks to see how they looked together. I can't remember where I got the pattern, I would like to give credit to the person who designed it.

Yellow Brick Road

Image
This is a Yellow Brick Roas quilt that I made using all neutrals. There is a closeup of the freeform leaves that I quilted all over it in varigated rayon thread.

Pumpkin Man's Transformation

Image
After the Pumpkin Man's head rotted, it was thrown away. He became Freddie Kruger and hung out on the deck.
