Monday Progress a Day Late

Here is a string quilt, made from 48 blocks.  The center string is a chambray in a rosey color.  I think it looks pretty good!

Postage Stamp Quilt....and Some Help

Hello everyone!  I have been working on a postage stamp quilt, and I I have it three quarters complete.  It is made from vintage 1940's, 1950's, and 1960's fabric.  I love it, a print piece alternated with a white piece.  Here is my problem.  I want every piece different.  So I need 200 more 2 1/2 inch cut squares.  Is there anyone out there would trade me those for 6 Civil War Reproduction fat quarters.  I am looking for fabric that is either reproduction or reads as if its from the above era's.  Even those early 70's calicoes would work.  Leave me a comment if you can help and I will e-mail you and we can get in touch!

Thanks so much!

Star Quilt

I got this quilt finished before Thanksgiving, but never took a full picture of it.  Thanks to a friend, its photographed and done.  I love the visual impact of the hand quilted Baptist Fans.  Its all hand pieced from vintage 60's fabrics.

V is for Victory

I really, really like this quilt.  I have always liked embroidered quilts, but I wish I could find a pattern for one of the embroideries, so I could make my own Victory Quilt.  If anyone knows where to find this let me know!
