    I'm also very proud of this one as its my most technically correct quilt and my only commissioned project for a friend with cancer. She chose the colors and left the design and fabric selection up to me. I was so nervous, but she loved it.

    I make and give almost every quilt..Some are for my DD to give as Wedding Gifts, Baby Gifts etc...the rest go to Charity ex. the COC here at M* and Quilts for Gabe, M* as well. I quilt only for people that enjoy my free spirit style and are always thrilled with what i make.. Such an ego booster!
    I sew as well for my Sis to sell in specialty shops to help subsidize her limited income.

    So far my most favorite one, and fairly recent is this simple layer cake quilt that i made for a "Cocker Spaniel Rescue" group. I was introduced to a very special lady who just won my heart as a person and is in charge of an auction to benefit these dogs...It took me very little time and it came together well... the applique and "words" across the bottom came to me while searching pinterest for the template. I then challenged myself to do the scalloped border with the tool from M*... Can't believe i figured it out that easy with Jenny's tutorial)
    The best part.... it brought in almost $500.00!!!! Yippee doo!!! What a great feeling !

    I call this my Downton Abbey quilt. Made exclusively of fabric from the Downton Abbey Dowager Duchess line. Pieced by me and quilted by Missouri Star (they did a fabulous job). And best if all it is just for ME!!!!!!!!! Actually made this one and a Hugs and Kisses quilt for myself. Everything else I make is for specific people.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Here are a few of my favorites, all made by me. These were donated to raise funds or made for family members or prayer quilts for my church quilt group.
