Below are a few of my latest quilts and a little about them.
 

Greenwork Hillbillies

I thought these embroidery patterns by Aunt Martha were a hoot when I saw them and had to to get them. The top has been finished for several years, but I just quilted it in April 2006. The trees are my patterns and are a combination of paper-piecing and string piecing. I used up some of my leftover green bindings on this quilt.

Hand-Dyed Strings 1

I love to work with hand-dyed fabrics and several years at a quilt show in Nevada I purchased quart sized ziploc bag of hand-dyed "fabric strings" for $5. These strings were the ends of the fabric that the vendor had cutoff when cutting FQ's for sale. I stuffed the bag as full as I possibly could and still seal it. I had enough fabric to make all of the string-pieced blocks in this quilt with 4 blocks leftover.

Strings 1

I love to string piece and see what I can make with fabric that would normally be thrown away. This quilt finished out at almost a twin size. I made a dent in the amount of the strings that I had on hand when I made this, but not for long.



A Sampling of Insanity

One year I decided to challenge myself to use the teensy-tiny scraps that I would have leftover from paper-piecing in sampler blocks. The blocks are approximately 9" square and I used a different 'mini-quilt' pattern for each one. The Flying Geese block was the first one I completed and there are 158 pieces of fabric in that one block alone. The number of pieces in the block became less and less after making that block because I hated the pain of taking out the tissue paper that I had drawn the patterns on.

St. Patrick's Day Wallhanging

I designed and made this St. Patrick's Wallhanging while I was attending grad. school in Boston.


 
Winter Wallhanging

Another wallhanging in the series of 'seasons' that I'm slowly making for myself.

 
An IQ Garden

This wallhanging was made the first year, 1997, that I belonged to Interquilt for the infamous squishey challenge. The fabrics I received made me realize that you truly could send anything for the challenge. The flowers in the garden are made from ribbons, beads, and fabric yo-yo's.
