Postage Stamp Quilt for Braden

This quilt was a leader/ender quilt.  The top was just made accidentally in between other quilting.  This picture doesn't really do it justice.  I absolutely love it. 
This quilting was fun and easy.  It made the colored blocks look like they were made as a square n a square.
Again, I wish the color was better.  Maybe with my new camera I can get a better photo that is true to color.

Zig Zag Baby Quilt

 I bought this pattern when I was in Utah at my high school friend reunion.  I fell in love with the quilt on the wall at the quilt store.
 I love the quilting.  I love what I have learned to quilt in the borders.
The Zig Zag's finish at one inch.
This fabric was pulled from the garbage at the quilt store where they were cutting fat quarters.  Most of it was barely one and a half inches wide.  The borders are less that than.
 The quilting shows upon the back as well.
This took a while to quilt, but I love the effect of the quilting.

Elk Quilt for Scott

I quilted this quilt for my daughter in law.  There is lots of quilting in the grass.  Scott didn't want much quilting in the sky.
The whole quilt.
One of the corners.
Angela Walters inspired quilting.

It doesn't show, but I quilted the diagonal lines.

He loves his quilt.  It is on their bed right now.

Luigi Quilt

My son, Tony, loves to play games.  For years I would ask him if he wanted a quilt and he always said he wanted a Mario quilt.  He even drew me a quilt with elaborate blocks.  I told him I could never make that quilt.  One day he said he wanted a Luigi quilt.  I said I don't have a pattern.  He said he could get me a pattern.  He sat down at the computer and typed in "16 bit Luigi or 8 bit Luigi," I'm not sure which one.  Up popped a picture of what you see here.  It took maybe 30 seconds to find it.  "Squares," I think I can make that quilt.  It's been started for several years now.  Yesterday I finished it.  I love it so much I may not let him have it!! lol
 Closeup of the detailed quilting on my Luigi.
I wanted to surround Luigi with all blue.  Tony said  no, he needs to be on bricks.  They have turned out to be my favorite part of the quilt.
Tony wanted a coin.  The colors are not true, but here is a close up.
It took about a month to quilt this.
Notice the hair and mustache.  The mustache has mustache shaped quilting, but it is hard to see in the black.
 The back is a busy print that hides all my thread color changes.
