Holly Bag

I finally made a Holly Bag.  Many of my quilting friends made the Holly bag when Holly lived her and she taught many classes.  I finally found the right fabric to make one.  My daughter-in-law Kara, works at a quilt store in Bakersfield, Ca and saw this fabric and thought of me.  It is perfect.  Thanks Holly !

Christmas Banner

This was a request from my daughter Kathleen to make this for her.  I first said I quilt this is mostly embroidery.  Then I thought, yes I can do this and I did.

Baby Quilt

This was made for our friend Gigi to give as a baby gift.

Army Quilt

I didn't make this quilt but I quilted 12 of them for the 25th ID division coffee group.

Star Crazy

This quilt made me a little crazy.  I talked 10 of my friends to buy this kit and make it with me.  It first was sold as a block a month on the Quilt Show.  We bought it from Superior Threads because they were selling it for 1/2 off.  As of today 3 of the 10 are finished with the quilt.  Now what to do with it.  Because even though it wasn't expensive it took many hours to make.

Harry Potter

I made this for Sue Haushalter to give to her grand daughter Laura.

Black, White and a little Red

This was made for my cousin Kit Jansen's daughters wedding gift.

T- Shirt quilt

This was made for a customer.  It was a gift for her son, of all his favorite T-shirts.


This pattern was very difficult to make.  I had to lay it out to see the placement of each ornament.  then keep the rows together so I could sew them.  Then the curves "Oh My".  This was made for the Hartnett family for Christmas.


 I showed the pattern of this quilt to my grandson Colby, and told him I was going to make it as a wall hanging with only 7 turtles.  He said can you make it for me but bigger.  I can't ever tell him no, so he helped me choose the fabric all from fabric I had.  Colby told me what fabric to make for each turtle.

Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints, in the sand are gone.

I made this quilt for Corben & Mason Hartnett.  My 4th and 5th grandchildren.

Beautiful Peacock

I bought this fabric because I loved the color of the peacock.  Then I didn't know what to do with it, so it sat and waited.  One day I was delivering Operation Kid Comfort quilts to 3 children whose father is deployed in Iraq.  Guess what their last name is.  Yes Peacock. 

Beautiful Debra

I made this quilt for my sister Debra.  This is using Kaffe Fassett fabric.  I made a bed pillow case and a throw pillow case to go with the set.  I love you Debra.

Stitch a Little Talk a lot

I took a class from the designer Amy Bradley at a quilt retreat on the Big Island.  This quilt was all appliqued and then stitched down and then the borders were added and then quilted.
