Heritage Quilt

This quilt was completed the last week in September 2010. I love the Civil War Reproduction fabrics and had plenty left over after doing my Dear Jane quilt.

Spider Web Quilt

This quilt was completed in June 2010. Machine quilted by me. I got the pattern from Bonnie Hunter's site. The directions were free and easy to do. Here is the site:

My 30s Sampler

This quilt was part of the Block of the Month I participated in at the Quilt N Stitch in West Monroe. You had to pay $5.00 for the first block and you got the next month free as long as you completed the block. I started quilting on it last Spring but put it away until the Fall and finally finished the hand quilting at the end of January 2009.

The Perfect Purse

This is the third time I have used this pattern to make a purse.  I found this upholstery fabric remnant at Goodwill for 50 cents.  It was enough to make a purse.

Retro Chicken Potholder

When I was in college in the 70s I purchased a cute little chicken potholder.  The price on the envelope was 60 cents.  I dug that pattern out and made it again.

Paducah Nine Patch

A few months I completed my Dear Jane quilt. I had a lot of Civil War fabrics left over so I decided to do a Paducah Nine Patch. The Paducah Nine Patch is on the cover of the Nickel Quilts book by Pat Speth. I did wind up purcashing a small amount of some new Civil War reproductions fabric I spotted at my favorite quilt shop. I just couldn't resist.
This is just the top. It has not been quilted yet. I still have my 30's sampler that needs to be quilted.

My 30s quilt in progress.

This is my five dollar 30s quilt. I started it in 2002. This was a block of the month at the Quilt N Stitch in West Monroe, LA. We paid $5.00 for the first block and if you completed your block and showed it at the next meeting you got the next block free. I finally got an applique border on. My next step will be to sandwhich the three layers together and baste the quilt. After I do that I will quilt it. I haven't decided whether I will machine or hand quilt it.

What I did this weekend: a new purse

Put together this little purse this weekend. Was fun to put together. The first picture is the purse back. Has a zipper where you get into the purse. Purse is lined inside with a pretty fabric. Second picture is the purse front. It has a pocket in front too. Purses measure 8 by 10 inches.
