The simple piecing shows off the great African motifs of the fabric.

I have a new camera and it seems like I'm always making excuses for it. Again - the colors are washed out. The body of Lisa's quilt is stitched in the ditch. I thought it was going to be boring - but I really like it.
Boy - my camera did weird things! What looks blue is really a beautiful teal. Anyway - it is a great Disappearing Nine Patch pattern.
Susan made this sweet quilt for her daughter.

This is one of two quilts that Doris made to honor her grandsons' military careers. The red and white stripes are machine pieced, the rest is hand pieced. The stars are PERFECTLY hand appliqued with the blanket stitch. What a wonderful tribute from a proud gramma.
Sara is "at that age" that she needs a wedding gift for a friend every few months. Lucky for her, her mother is the fastest piecer in Winnebago County.

This quilt is enormous and very well made. 2 jillion seams and it is flat and square. Good job, Liz! It took an entire day to quilt the "Terry Twist" in the patterned areas with variagated thread.
