Lisa's Quilt
Lisa's Quilt
Lisa’s quilt ---This quilt top was made by my friend, Anneliese. I quilted it for her on my Grace Machine Quilting Frame. I have since upgraded to first the Hobby Quilter by Nolting, followed by the Nolting 18" Commercial and finally I have the Nolting 24" Pro IS Turbo which is also computerized. This was one of my first quilts, so the quilting on this one is pretty simple as I only had a 9" throat machine at that time. My how things have changed during my short time of quilting!!

Delores
Delores
A good friend had heart surgery a few months ago (2008). She had pieced this quilt before having surgery, but it still needed to be quilted. SO.......I undertook that task as a get well gift for her. It was kind of scary as it was the first "real quilt" that I had done after my hubby computerized my Nolting 24" machine. I really only quilt for fun, not as a business, so it was a bit traumatic. It turned out fine though, and she was a really happy camper when she got it back. Another friend did the binding for her, so she just had to admire it. It really is pretty!!

Marie Table Runner
Marie Table Runner
This table runner is made of border prints and was labeled as an "Easy Stripped Table Runner" on the pattern. Marie, another friend, Wendy and I all made one of these as a "quick, easy project" while Marie was visiting from Alaska. Our border prints were all different. Now that they are completed, we like them quite well. However, we would never refer to them as "quick and easy". They have only 5 seams in them, but cutting was not fun!! I'm sure we will do better on our next ones!! Marie will add her binding to this as she travels back to Alaska. These were made in July 2011. This was quilted on my Nolting 24 Pro machine with computer.

September 2012 - This is a quilt that Marie (friend/relative) made for her daughter, Sheri. We were having our own little retreat in McCall ID in a great condo in a beautiful setting.

We had such a great time in McCall, and Sheri will soon be the recipient of her quilt. The finished quilt size is 82" x 92". The pattern is an Irish Chain.
