Check out my Pinterest page for pictures of my quilts –
Here are some of the projects I have made since I started blogging in Nov 2012 – You can find details about them by browsing back through my blog.
And then there are the non quilt projects, mostly for the grandchildren –
Below are some of my more
recent OLDER projects.
Quilt Projects Virginia Ruth’s ONE BLOCK WONDER
I made this quilt for my third grandchild. The hexagons for the main part of the quilt are all made from one fabric, cut into triangles. The outer border on the front and back of the quilt show what the fabric looked like before it was cut. Thanks to my sister-in-law, Carolyn for all her help designing and teaching me! There is a “story” that goes with this quilt which I shall write someday!
Tonya’s Ohio Star
I did a quilt for a friend as a retirement gift, when she retired from the Air Force. She picked out the fabric, and I picked the design. (I thought she might pick a patriotic fabric, but instead she chose a lovely oriental purple. I chose a “modified” OHIO STAR for the design. It was my second voyage into working with “half-square” triangles. I loved working with my June Tailor “Perfect half and quarter square triangle” ruler. I’ve done another quilt where I used ordinary rulers and marked my center – point to point; but this tool was fabulous.

I recently demo’d the tool at a quilt shop where I was taking a class, and the instructor asked the shop owner to order these!
Now, I look for patterns using 1/2 square triangles ! I did a couple of baby quilts this fall using them as well.

I repeated this very same quilt with blue accents for Elliott’s baby boy –
