Jigg's Quilt

 This is a quilt my family quilting group made for my mom's husband, Jiggs Pace.  We gave it to him at my mother's funeral luncheon, February 21, 2015.
 This is a beautiful quilt with beautiful colors.  My camera didn't get the correct colors.  I quilted this on my Tiara sit down quilting machine using a "line tamer" ruler.
 Jiggs and Jean - just like someone wrote on the chalk board when they were in high school.
The label says it all.  "Little One" was my mother's nick name.
This is Jiggs and mom this past summer.  She was so happy married to him.  They were a sweet couple.  They were high school sweet hearts and married after their spouses had both passed away.

Pineapple Quilt from Quilt Camp

This was a quilt we made at Quilting in the Country Quilt Retreat.  I finally finished it in 2014.  I like the look of the colors of the blocks.  The light in this photo doesn't represent the fabric very well.

Eden's Zig Zag Doll Quilt

 I love this doll quilt.  Isn't it gorgeous?  I made a larger quilt with this design.  These are my left overs.  There was enough left over for a doll quilt.
 This is flannel on the back.  I wanted to try out some quilting on this quilt to see if I wanted to quilt the larger one this way.  It took me a day and a half to quilt this.  I am not sure I want to invest that much time in the larger quilt, but I sure love the quilting.
 If you click on the photo you will see Eden's name and 2015 above the scollops.
Closer look at quilting.  I quilted the straight lines on my domestic machine and the scallops on my Tiara sit down machine.

The doll on this fabric looks just like Eden.

She loved her quilt so much.  After I gave it to her she walked around hugging it to her self.  That really makes a grandmother happy that she made her sweetie a quilt.

I'd Rather Be a Cowboy Quilt

This quilt was a block of the month quilt we did in our quilt club.  Different members of the club taught the blocks.  I added the boot and the hat.  My extra blocks are on the back of the quilt.  I made this for my husband.  He really likes it.
 One of my favorite blocks.

 The colors on these pictures are not good.  The colors are brighter and more vibrant.  I don't know what to do.  I took photo inside and out.
No label yet.  I need to get on that.  This quilt was finished in July 2014.
