Greenlee County Fair 2019

These are some of the nicest quilts I have ever entered into the Greenlee County Fair.  I don't often have three such nicely quilted quilts to enter.  
"Christmas Presents" is machine quilted by myself.  The border was especially beautiful.  I designed the border myself.  The turquoise made the whole quilt just pop! Click on the photo to see the quilting up close.
 "The Twelve Days of Christmas" was so fun to piece.  I love this detailed piecing.  I also quilted this.  Click on the photos to see the quilting up close.
"Whispering Pines" was a design I made myself.  I took a class from Lisa Calle, a professional quilter, where I learned to make this type of quilting design.  I designed the quilt around the center block.  Click on the photo to see the details of the quilting.  It is some of the best I have ever done.

2019 Greenlee County Fair Book

I won Best of Fair on a quilt last year so I made the fair book this year!

God Bless America Quilt

I made this quilt for Richard after he was re-elected as Greenlee County Supervisor.  Click on the photo to see a closeup of the quilting.
It hangs in his office at the Greenlee County Annex Building.

Catalina's Catnap or Pins and Paws Quilt

Catalina loves Cats.  That's why as soon as I saw this quilt pattern, I knew it was for her.  It is titled Pins and Paws from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.
 There was some fun quilting on this quilt.

I love pieced backs.  It's also a good way to use up left over fabric.This backing idea is from Gyleen Fitzgerald.

 This is one of my favorite border quilting patterns.

 I love quilted straight lines.  They add so much movement to a quilt.
The whole quilt.
Richard thought the quilting was odd, but I think it is very modern.
As always, a label.
