Burgundy block of the month

This is one of the Hancock block of the month quilts.  I set it with half square triangles to do something different.  It was auctioned at a Girl Scout event.  Ray didn't think the colors would go in most peoples homes that we know.  He doesn't generally give an opinion about my quilts so I decided to find a worthy charity.  Susan did the binding for me so it wouldn't hang in the closet for a couple of years waiting to be finished.  Thank you Susan.

Tiffany's Quilt

I made this for Tiffany and Phil when they got married.  Tiff told me her colors and it took as look to find the fabrics as it did for me to piece and quilt the quilt.  It is a turning 20 pattern.  I wish I had a close up.  The picture does not do justice to the beautiful fabrics.  

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby wrapped is a quilt with a couple pieces of fabric that were used in the wedding quilt.  Tiffany wanted a sailboat theme using navy, turquoise and lime green colors for the baby's room.

Gloria's Wedding Quilt

I put this together for my niece, Gloria when she got married.  The pin wheels are pre-pieced and then I made the snowballs and put the borders on.  I did freehand quilting putting a rose in the center of each snowball.  I was very happy with it, considering  I didn't use a pattern.
