Batik Stars

This is a beautiful batik quilt, in which these pictures don't do it justice!

I simply had some great freehand background swirls and and hooks 

Each big feather had double plumes in them.

The smaller stars had single plumes and the border had double plumed feathers.
It was gorgeous, too bad you couldn't see it in person!

Great little Holiday runners!

This sweet little runner has the greatest fabric!

I simply added some loopy circles, echoing, and serendipty lines for the borders.

This little runner is full of holly and poinsetta!

I simply added holly and berries in the red around the poinsettias.

The first border has curly cues, and the last has holly and berries.
Both are such great little holiday runners!

I love those Kansas Troubles!

This wonderful quilt, made with Kansas Troubles, was for a former teacher turned friend!  Who knew, 20 years ago that instead of typing for her, I would be quilting!

In this picture, you can sort of see that I did a circular thing in the gold border and a swirly thing in the red border.

Here, you can see the meander in the main area of the quilt and the feather in the last blue border.

Here is a picture of the back!

And one more close-up of the back!

Art Circles using RED thread.

This quilt is comprised of three pieced circles made up of wedges.  It was really cool!

Sandi wanted me to add some of the designs from inside the circles to the black areas.  Well, that can be interpreted many ways!  I didn't know what to do, but I thought I would add a little geometry to the circles through the hexagon type of lines outside the circles.

You can see that the outside of the circles have some of the ferny feather things and swirls.  I really liked it, but the red thread was definately bold.

Beautiful Batiks!

This is a HUGE quilt!  It is 112 x 95 or so!  These beautiful batiks just sparkle.

The center has a swirl that shows up in the lighter pieces really well.

The border has a different ferny type of look to it.

Here, you can see the center and border.

The backing is always fun to see!
