Open a Can of Worms Quilt

I saw this quilt made at my quilt shop and wanted one like it.  I have seen this pattern published many times under different names. The "Open a Can of Worms" book was published before Moda started naming cuts of fabric that we know now as "Jelly Rolls." 
 This is a fabric line called Madeira.  My camera doesn't show the color well.  It is much more vibrant than this.  It is a queen size quilt.  
The block is 2 four patches and 2 white squares with snowballs sewn to opposite corners.  The secondary pattern comes with how they are sewn together and arranged with their neighbors.

The quilting on the white.   I did all the quilting.  It took about a month to do.  I am pleased with how the quilting turned out.
The dark block were quilted alternately with this flower and curves.
This is the curves.
 I made a pieced back out of the same fabric.  I had a lot of it.

Scripture Bags for Catalina and Cyndle

 I make this bag from place mats.
 This girl wanted blue and chose this placemat.
This one likes her things with more color and bling.

Will's Duncan Wildkat T-shirt quilt

 I had a very hard time fitting all the quilt into the photo frame.  It is a very large quilt. It cost about $350 to make and about $800 if you include the price of all the t-shirts.  Will says the best thing is all the memories it represents.

I love this quilt and the memories it represents.

Spool Baby Quilt

 This was a leader/ender challenge by Bonnie Hunter.  I don't remember the year.
 The blocks were made with 1.5 inch strips and sewed before and after other sewing blocks.
 I did the machine quilting.  I loved how it turned out.
Back up close.  I like to do this kind of border.
This will be for a future grandchild.  I can't give it to just anyone. It was to much work.
