I work so intimately with quilts, that I can usually figure out exactly how they are made. Not so this time! I might have to take Connie's class at Pieceful Hearts in order to make this one!

Connie has taught her "Roman Stripes" class several times. This is another beautiful fabric combination and layout.
Schley promises that these perfect circles are really easy to make. Learn how in her class at Pieceful Hearts in Lisle this winter. This quilt displays a wonderful assortment of African motifs but this would be a great way to display any collection of fabrics that you can't bear to cut into tiny pieces.
Cathie is a serious t-shirt quilt maker - good thing because her family must be fanatic t-shirt wearers! She has had so much practice that she can get those stretchy t-shirts to conform into a perfectly straight quilt!

When my 4 kids were babies, I made felt and sequin stockings for them for Christmas. Let's just say that I'm not willing to make more for grand children. These are strip quilted. Nancy Garrison did the wonderful machine embroidered names. The 3 unmarried kids are debating what colors future spouses will get. Stay tuned......
Schley was able to parlay this regal quilt into 3 gifts for her son.

My mom and 3 sisters make a quilt whenever any of our children get married. This Winding Ways is for Adam and Machelle who will be wed on January 2, 2010.
