Been a long time

Haven't been here in awhile and see that I need to take some things off the side bar!

Just been living life, working, quilting.  The usual.  One of my last posts was about 4 quilts and they're all done.  They should be, it's been long enough!  My favorite is the Agave Garden in Patriotic colors.  The inspiration for the quilting design was that I realized there were 13 stars on the quilt:  the center star and the 12 stars that I added.  So, I thought to do 13 stripes waving across it like a flag.  You know, 13 stars and stripes.  Every stripe has a different fill and took me weeks to complete.  I need to get better pictures of the entire quilt that will show all the stripes.


Right now I'm working on one for my friend and his wife.  It's a simple pattern, can't think of the name, maybe Jewel Box.  The quilting inspiration was that it reminds me of water and sand.  I did ripples coming out from the water and pebbles on the shore.  Haven't decided about the borders yet but just 5 out of 11 rows are done so I have time to think about it.
