Monty’s Deer Family

Our neighbors developed a relationship with a doe and her two fawns.  Every evening, Monty would go out to the bayou and wait for her to show up with her little fawns.  He would call to her and she would approach and eat the corn he scattered on the ground.  This quilt was my Christmas gift to them.

Azteca Tiles

This quilt was inspired by a workshop with Laura Murray. In it we learned how to use Shiva oil paint sticks and rubbing plates to create designs on fabric. The designs were then cut apart, rotated and stacked to make large blocks. For this quilt I set the blocks on point and using a buttonhole stitch, hand appliquéd them to the background fabric. I machine stitched all the raw edges down and quilted feathers between the blocks. The binding is a black Kona cotton cut on the bias, the corners were rounded to emphasize the curves in the quilting.

Cot Cover

This quilt was commissioned by Teresa McGlynn for her business of transporting bodies from their place of residence (or hospice) to the funeral home. She had contacted me about making something that would be used for her Catholic and Christian families, rather than the plain upholstery fabric she had been using. She allowed me to make all the design decisions, which is the reason I enjoyed making the quilt. It was tied and the binding stitched by Martha’s Quilters.

Nativity Quilt

This quilt was made by Martha’s Quilters using a pattern published by Paper Panache.  It was paper pieced by a team of 6 women over a period of 6 weeks.  It was auctioned at the church Fall Festival for a price of $2200.  It was the most money we have ever made on a group quilt.

Scallop edged quilt

This quilt was made from 4 dishtowels that I bought in Santa Fe, New Mexico a few years ago.  I cut and pieced them in a geometric design, then hand stitched some colored embroidery floss through it to add some extra color.  It needed a curved finish, so I put in a scalloped edge with a striped fabric, and lots of quilting along the edges for a textured look.DSCN2463
