Vest for Cocheco Quilters Guild Quilt Show in October.


 I'm excited that my guild, Cocheco Quilters Guild, in Dover, NH has
asked me to be one of this year's three Meet the Quilters.
My theme will be this quilt journey the last 12 years of
learning, practicing, doodling, quilting and even teaching.
I've turned in my Bio and picture of me for the brochure and poster at the show.
Now I need to design the floor plan of my display for the show.
And I need to make a vest, kick up my quilt show attire a bit!
Here's my design ready for the feathers I'm going to quilt on it.

A Dog's Life Quilt by Lynette Anderson with a switch

This wonderful dog quilt by Lynette Anderson, A Dog's Life, 
has been on my bucket list for about five years. 
I finally purchased the pattern at VQF last summer and started my scrappy version
on it in the fall at LLQG retreat. 


I finished my version in June.
The bottom block is the block I modified to include our rescue dog Kylie, then Piper our grandpuppy and Beau, Kylie's BFF.
So this quilt is in honor of our dear friend Tim who passed away on Mother's Day
as I was working on the binding.

Patsy Thompson Ruler Work Class


Patsy Thompson's held a Ruler Work class on her blog. I quickly ordered her set of rulers.
I really like how the ruler work makes a frame for the fmq.
This medallion was super fun and great practice. I have to finish the fillers.

I designed a border inspired by the practice pieces for a bench cover.

Charity Baby Quilt

This is a baby quilt I'm going to add to the many quilts my Cocheco Quilters Guild of
Dover, NH are donating at the United Way baby shower in April.
I hope to finish one more in time to donate:)
This is a pattern I downsized to 30 by 40 from Animal Parade by Cheri Leffler.
 I love the turtles.

Bag It for Elm Street Quilts

Here are two bags I've made this month for Yankee Swaps.
They were fun to make.
I'm going to share these at Elm Street Quilts for the bag it fun.
I have a few more bags to finish for Christmas presents.
