Quilts using Ocean Waves Quilt Block

My friend Sally was inspired by Janet Wickell at and asked me to add the Ocean Waves quilt block to so she could create her own quilt design using this block.

Ocean Waves is great for scrap quilts. Sally is a member of Stashbusters and is dedicated to using up her massive fabric stash.

I added the block as well as two quilt designs to the
gallery at The first quilt design is similar to the quilt in Janet's web page. My second design combines the Ocean Waves quilt block with the Buckeye Beauty quilt block for a very interesting design.

Happy quilting!

Quilted Postcard Contest

My friend Glenna, who owns our local quilt shop, Quilts 'n Stuff by Glenna is having a contest for the best quilted postcard. She is also celebrating her 20 th year in business with a GREAT sale and a bead party. See her blog for more details on the sale. 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.
