collection of my quilts

These are a few quilts that I have made over the past few years. Many of my quilts are given away as gifts.

Currently I am working on three quilts. The Sylvia bridal quilt - I started working on this around the first of the year after seeing a post on the HG-TV website. There are several women (I think they're all women) making the quilt. It's been a fun experience seeing all the blocks that have been made so far. I project that it will be finished by the end of the summer. I am pondering as to how I would like quilt the quilt when it's finished. It's by far the most complicated quilt I have done so far.

The other quilt under construction is a Grandma Flower Garden quilt. I had made the block for the Sylvia quilt and liked making it so much that I made more and more and more. Now I have about 40 blocks made. I have enjoyed making these here in the USA and also in New Zealand when I visited my sister and her family... I think I made several in the Fiji Islands and also over the Pacific Ocean.

Another quilt under construction is a Dresden

Plate quilt. The top was originally finished and the quilted already started, it looked terrible, the quilting was uneven and lumpy. I decided to take it apart and re-do the whole thing. Now I am on the search for the perfect background fabric - do I want a solid or a soft print, decisions decisions.
