Quilts--lots of them!

It's been very, very busy around here. I just finished the final quilt that's due out before Christmas. I feel like a huge load has been lifted from my shoulders.

This is going to be a *very* picture-heavy post, so I'll apologize in advance.

I'll go in order from the ones I haven't posted pics yet (although I'm deliberately leaving out one that I know if a gift, and she's asked me to hold off posting about it until after Christmas).

This is a team effort from Leslie Hale and Teresa Marler:


Janet Hall made this beautiful Irish Chain:



Janice Drehobl put this neat quilt together:



I LOVE how this one by Janet Hall turned out:




And another of Janet's:



Monica Maklin made a couple of really cute kids' quilts using similar patterns and cute prints:



Brooke Lindamood put this cute quilt together for her daughter. She wanted the quilting to look like bubbles, and I think it does!

This is Brooke's other quilt, made to showcase a t-shirt of her Dad's:




Here's another of Janice Drehobl's quilts. The back has notes from "the cat" and it's really cute. I wrote some sayings down the long strips ("a cat's a cat and that's that," "you own a dog but you feed a cat" and the like).



Janice's autumn quilt. We decided on leaves and pumpkins for the quilting.



Janet and her sister pieced this beautiful batik quilt:



Diane Turner's daughter put this top together using her t-shirts from high school:



Leslie Hale made some quilts for Christmas gifts:








Kathryn Blalock had some quilt tops pieced by some of her relatives, and she brought them to me to quilt. They all use vintage fabrics, and they're mostly hand-pieced.
