Scrappy Little Houses - Quilt In Progress

These scrappy little houses are all set for a traveling project to add hand quilting and embellishments. I pulled bits of fabrics left over from projects and just cut some shapes. They are stitched to cotton batting without any backing yet. I plan on sewing them on backing later.

Here is a picture of the back of them showing they are machine sewn down to hold in place for traveling. I kind of like these too.

Four-Leaf Clover Quilt Block for St. Patrick's Day

My daughter has found four-leaf clovers twice already. I saw her find one them when we were walking on a gravel path with clover patches everywhere and she said I think that's a four-leaf clover, she reached down and sure enough it was her second four-leaf clover! She has them pressed in one of her Harry Potter books. 

So I thought I would make a four-leaf clover and play with some spring greens!

Happy Spring! Now this year I might try some green beer this year - heh heh!

Boston Love Art Quilt

Since we have two beloved Boston Terriers, I made this art quilt for them - ha! Or at least they inspired it! This is applique and crazy quilt blocks for the border then machine quilted.
Size: 24" x 18"

Of course I had to include some pictures of Sweet Schatzie and Little Olive.
