Happy Christmas

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
Lucy settles in for a long winter's nap.
A slideshow of my quilts that I put out for the holidays is below...

Still shots (if this code doesn't work on your tablet, etc.) are here:
Holiday wreath with yo-yo berries.
I rescued 4-5 quilted "blocks" from a quilt that was cut apart. It was too amazing to ignore so I cobbled it together (thus the wacky edges) and hang it every Christmas.
Antique rescue quilt.
Here is a detail of the amazing hand quilted and hand appliqu├ęd pinwheel.
Hand quilted by anonymous quilter.
Here is one of my first patchwork pieces. Scrappy fabrics and sawtooth stars.
This one was made early in my quilting career.
 This one is called "Christmas Geese."

Made from vintage Dresden Plate blocks and pieces. The original hand piecing was preserved. "From her ScrapBasket to Mine."


A scrappy pieced binding.
Another one of my beginning projects. It was all about scrappy quilts--which I still love! Early on, I had to "make scraps." Now, I already have them.

This little nine-patch was also hand quilted.
 A mini quilt: hand stencilled wreaths with fabric paint.
 I even did some hand quilting on this one.
(Before I fell in love with free-motion.)
