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.

Travis' Disappearing Nine Patch Christmas Quilt

My son, Travis, finished this quilt recently.  It was made from Christmas scraps from my stash.  The pattern is the Disappearing Nine Patch.
This is the quilting on the back.  Label soon to come.

Reach for the Stars Quilt

 Bryson was born into a room that was decorated by solar system accessories.  I made this quilt to match his room.  His brother has lime green sheets.
 I am really proud of the border quilting.  I used a very contrasting thread and my quilting still looks good.  
 The back also looks good.  I ditch stitched the pinwheels and also quilted diagonally across the plain green squares.

It's just not a quilt until it is labeled.

It's a Party Pink

I made this quilt at one of our Quilting in the Country Quilt Retreats.  It was a very simple pattern.  They had everything cut out and I just sewed the parts together.  I actually finished the top years ago.  I sent it to a quilter whose husband got cancer.  She kept it a year.  I really wanted her to quilt it because she is so good, but I asked for it back and got Kathy Wolfe to quilt it for me.  I didn't want to quilt this one myself.  It is really big and I didn't think custom quilting would go here very good.
This is a close up of the quilting.  It's a little hard to see, but click on the picture and it will get bigger.
Here is a picture of the back.  You can see the quilting really good.  I will post a picture of the label when I get it done.  This quilt will go in a pile to be wedding quilts for my grandchildren.  I finished this in June of 2014.
