Reunion Auction Items


My family has an auction to raise money to help 
fund any rent or deposits that we may incur 
for our reunions, these are the items I made.


didn't use a pattern for the bag, I just figured
 out what size I wanted and cut it out.
Pockets are in each corner of the bag. 

Had some fun making key fobs, they sold really well. 
The feather was the favorite.

Made two bags.

The make-up bag has pockets inside.


The guys bag did not turn out as I had hoped but it is not to bad.
I put a nice green and black fabric inside.

Bay Area Swap

The St. Louis Modern Quilt Guild is doing a 
swap with the Bay Area Modern Guild.
I thought a make-up bag would be nice.

The pattern was from Haberdashery Fun
Very easy pattern to follow.
I added some hand quilting for fun.

The pattern did not have pockets inside but I thought
a make-up bag needed some slip pockets.

Michael Miller Fabric Challenge

My Michael Miller Fabric Challenge Quilt!
This is a baby blanket size with a pattern I drew up myself.

All the fabrics used are Michael Miller
and this quilt is so soft. It has a wonderful 
drape and it hasn't even been washed yet.

Shriner's Flower

This is a very simple pattern but I love how it looks with this material.

This is a Shriner's Hospital quilt and will be quilted by our guilds long-arm quilter.

Ready to go!

Lap Robes

It has been a while since I made lap robes for the 
nursing home so I wanted to get a few finished.

This lap robe turned out super cute, 
I used a piece of gold, some
 plaid  and scrap material  for this star quilt.
It went together real easy.

My helper.

This one is just two pieces of fabric with flannel sandwiched 
in the middle. I hope some gentleman will love it!

I decide for Kyler I would make a quilt like my Grandma would have made,
 he would have been her 28th great grandchild (I think).When she passed away 
I took over for her in making baby quilts for all the babies born in our family.
 She used to hand cut all the blocks from old clothing. 

I used some older material I had and some from my mothers fabric closet.

I also did some chunky hand quilting, I still love an old fashion quilt!

More Totes

Okay this is my last batch of totes for a long while!
I made these for someone to give as gifts and although I had a 
great time picking fabrics I would rather make quilts.

The close-up shows the different linings in each one.

The chevron bag is actually an upholstery material. I wasn't sure 
how it would hold up so although I wash and dry all the material
 for the totes I did this material twice, it held up very well.
I hope the giftees like theirs!

Trip Around the World with Chicopee


Juli Ann from the STLMQG made a quilt very similar to this and 
after getting her okay to copy hers this is what mine looks like. 
This quilt is a  Scrappy Trip Around the World 
using Denyse Schmidt's Chicopee Fabric. 

I put in a few rows of left over blocks to make a color splash on the back.

The binding is two sided.
