Crib Quilt for Charity

Like all quilters, I have accumulated a few UFOs (unfinished objects). When I first started quilting, I worked on a sampler quilt using pink and blue fabrics.

After seeing my Birds in the Air block, a friend suggested finishing it as a crib quilt and donating it to our local Women's shelter. Great suggestion!

I used to create a pattern for this little quilt.

This is a picture of the actual quilt. has a new quilt pattern gallery. You may copy quilts from the gallery to access the pattern, learn how to use and/or use gallery quilts as a starting point for your own quilt design.

I put this little quilt in the gallery. Check it out!

Happy Quilting.

I recently took a class on making quilts of faces so I attempted to make a postcard of Glenna's face for the contest. I didn't want to use "normal" colors. Glenna loves batiks so I wanted to make her face in crazy batiks.

My first two attempts went in the trash can.... In the first one, I made very bad fabric choices. Glenna's face looked she was going to be sea sick...very bad.

In the second one, the features of her face seemed lopsided. I had tried to place the nose, mouth, etc. just by looking at the picture. In my third attempt, I actually traced her facial features on clear vinyl and used it as an overlay to fuse the pieces in the correct location.

So here is my third postcard...and the…
