Looking Back...Way Back

  Looking back and I mean looking back to years ago of some of my first quilts.

Tree of Friendship, a gift for a fellow nurse and friend that was leaving where I worked.  I had our coworkers sign and write whatever to her on the muslin squares.  I had less than two weeks to design, sneak around getting the squares signed and stitching it all together.  We cried like babies when she left and she only moved forty miles away.

Primitive Baskets


Ode to Jan Patek, my quilting tribute to her and her designs.

Stars and Circles

Primitive Clay Pot, hangs in the bathroom.

Primitive Checkerboard


Millennium Garden


Primitive Stripy quilt. 

Winter Spirit


Have a great new year!
