Cobblestones in Lancaster Modern Exhibit

Thanks to my buddy Sherry C I get to see my Cobblestones quilt traveling to the Lancaster show.  It is part of the Modern quilt exhibit.  It's been gone a few months now.  Glad it is doing well.

Bird's Modern Log Cabin

Again another quilt finished for the Bits show.  Having a piece in the show really motivates me to finish!
This was started in an improv class with Jacquie Gering last year and I loved doing it.  I tried out lots of different qui
lting designs and ideas and had fun.  I'll get some close ups of the quilting to add later. 

St Louis 250th Birthday - Eads Bridge quilt

I started this quilt last year in a workshop with Jacquie Gering and finished it for our Bits n Pieces show.  I was inspired by the Eads bridge photos I have.  Eads is the oldest bridge across the Mississippi river.  This year is 250th anniversary of the founding of St. Louis.  All fits.  I did heavy matchstick quilting on this one and used Legacy (Hobbs) wool batting and was very pleased.
