Roman Stripe

Yes it came back, quilted by Joyce, it looks beautiful, can't wait till I get it finish, very summery and Hot colors, August will be a good month for it.

I was waiting until I get this quilt "bind it'" to share it.

Do you see marbles fabric on it, yes I lost them!!

Sea Currents

I'm going to try to follow the direction from the August issue of Quilter's World magazine, on page 91, Beach Buddy.

Do not cal the quilt police on me, this one will be really different , you will see .

I'm trying to make a quick quilt for Caiden,

I will call it Sea ( see ) Currents, or ? Ocean Rhapsody

road to oklahoma

This is a pattern very similar the road to Oklahoma on http://
QUILTERS CACHE except ours was done on Flannel and we did not used the trapezoid technique instead we used squares and was a swap I did,... well long time ago I got ambitious and got quite big cause I use all the left overs and made more blocks. I gave that quilt to my D/H cause he is my star and his Family comes from Oklahoma.
My friend Joyce help me out, to figure the quilting on the border. I machine quilted it on my
"regular" machine, since it is flannel the quilting is not very noticeable that makes very forgiving when you are a novice.

My friend Amy asked about this quilt
