Solar System Quilt






I have joined a quilt along from "A Few Scraps."
I am really excited about it. Here is the top I made. I made it from a free pattern on http://www.maryquilts.com/. I was hoping to make it work for this quilt along. A Few Scraps said she got her inspiration from Mary. I think it will work just fine for this quilt along. If you are interested in joining, here is the link:

 The last paragraph was written in 2010.  I never posted pictures of the completed quilt.  I just forgot, so I am posting the pictures now.
 Quilting close up and my name.
I love pieced backs.  This uses the left over fabric plus some star fabric.

Jungle Wall Hanging

I found these animal blocks in a pile of scraps.  I decided to make a doll quilt.  Then when it turned out so cute I decided to make it into a wall hanging. 
A close up of the inside.
Even closer to show the quilting.  I really like this machine quilting pattern.
Pieced back with a label.

Two Charm Packs and a Yard

This pattern is called Two Charm Packs and a Yard.  I made the pattern from scraps so it looks a little different.  The red and green should have been only one color which would have been the "yard."
I wanted to quilt is simply but also a little nice.  I added the flowers to fancy it up a bit.  Click on the photo to make it larger.
I quilted the names of the recepiants on the quilt itself.
I added their wedding year.
One shot of both.
The flower that fancied it up.  This is actually a very easy flower.
Back quilting.
It isn't finished until it is labeled.
Fabric line is Madeira.  Simple but nice.

Dolly Dress Up #5 - Pam H.

I have mentioned before that I am on the baby committee for my churches women's group.  There are two of us and we make quilts and afghans for the girls who are having babies.  This quilt is made from a fabric called Dolly Dress Up.  I was able to get it at a very good price, so I have made quite a few Dolly Dress Up quilts for these girls.  I am thinking that my Red one is one of my favorites.  (Click on any of the photos for a larger view.)
The quilting on this one is also one of my favorites.  Angela Walters has become one of my quilting mentors.  I know lots of people use this quilting pattern, but she was my inspiration.
Just another close up of the quilting.   This pattern is in the Circle of Nine book.
As always there is a label.  This quilt is for Pam H. who is expecting a baby girl soon.
Name and year.
