Double Irish Horse Chain


This quilt was a little more difficult, the fabric was very specifically chosen. It had to be cut exactly, with the horse groupings all going in correct position, centered in each of the fields of the quilt. Instead of a bunny in the pocket, there is a horse with crocheted tail, mane, and hooves. Quilt is sold

Another view of the Queen Size quilt



This is a closer view of the queen-sized quilt, more detail in the center spiderwebs. You can see the .5 inch strips gradation in color that makes it look almost like a kaleidoscope.

FLW Quilt

This is one of two quilts made for twins, a boy and a girl, that had to coordinate with each other, but not be the same. They had to go with the layette set, but not match exactly. This one I named the Frank Lloyd Wright quilt, and was for the boy. It has a ladybug in the pocket instead of a bunny. The wings are floppy, and have the spots embroidered on them, the bug also has floppy antennas but does not have legs.

American Bunny


This is a closeup of one of my most popular quilts, American Bunny. The front and back are 100% cotton, the batting is polyester. The bunnies come out of their pockets to be cuddled and loved, and are machine washable and dryable for those times when they are loved a bit too much. The colors can be alternated to make it more blue, red, or white. Size is approximately 45" square. They are available for $125.

Queen size, one step at a time.


I started this quilt, the center spiderwebs, and then put it down for 12 years. Picked it up again, and finished it, using 4 of the 12 year old webs for the corners.
Quilt is a gift.
