My guild is doing a journal exhibit at our show in March of 2008. We are doing six each. I chose to do each member of my family - 4 kids, my husband and myself :)
This is my daughter Paige, she just turned eight. She is the third daughter and she is doll! I always say I would have "100 Paige's" She is sweet, easy going, smart and kind. This is a picture of her ski boarding at her cousin's house in NH. She was having a blast! I bejeweled it with iridescent jewels.

This is my son Griffin, he is six. He is the youngest of four and the only boy :). He is a great little kid - he loves to fish, play ball, swim and tease his sisters. He has a great sense of humor and adventure. He holds the record for ambulance rides and broken bones!

This is my Guild Challenge for 2007. We picked a bag with a crayon and a popsicle stick with a word on it. I got a pink crayon and the word circle. The center circle's are machine appliqued and bejeweled. I also jeweled the border circle's. The fabric was tricky mathematically. I am making a quilt with my 8 year old daughter for her room with the fabric in the border, so this will hang in her room.

I made this quilt for my guilds show in 2006, it took a few years and I loved buying the fabrics! It is a Maggie Walker pattern - The Blue Collection. I named it "you must like blue" because I have a collection of blue and white plates on the dining room wall and that is the comment everyone makes when they see it.

This is the Bra I had in our last quilt show. We had an exhibit with 40+ Bras made by our members. My Bra was called "cups & lumps". The show was hugely successful, in part because of this exhibit. My Bra is on Display in the mamography room at a local medical center.

year long class with Louisa Smith

This quilt was made in a year long (1999) gathering with Louisa Smith for a book she is writing on one patch design. The foundation is all hexagons. Some are solid and some are pieced - 6 triangles. I machine appliqued and quilted it. The colors look a bit muted in the photo, I need ot have my daughter take a better one. The photo I used for inspiration is photo transferred onto a label on the back, it came from a gardening magazine.
