Log Cabin Quilt and CQ Projects

Log Cabin quilt top is finished, needs to be quilted. The center was a wall hanging since 2004 and September 2015 I worked an hour every day and completed in November  14. These are the wildlife we encounter living in Alaska, Wyoming and New Mexico. It is a log cabin design and all hand appliqued. The houses and center are cotton materials and the border animals are wool.  

These 2 trees are from Kathy Shawkl's class ICQC 103. The above is an embroidered tree using the split stitch and adding  French knot leaves using the "Cloud" method.
Below is a twisted tree using textured yarns. It looks like the dead tree where we walk. 

 Kathy Shawkl's class ICQC 104 using silkies to embroider. Her hair is bouillon knots.

 Sunday walk with the dogs at Ute Lake. We have never seen the water this high in 15 years. Thank You El Nino!

Quilt Show On Line

Whims And Fancies Trunk Full Of Quilts 2015,
This is an awesome quilt show with lots of beautiful quilts.  Here are a few of my quilts and wall hangings.


Crazy quilt was started in 2006 and finished 2014. These are long term projects and won Best of Show at the County Fair.  I am in the process  of working on another one.

 Crazy Quilt Wall hanging Made in 2012 and won first place in an online international crazy quilt show.

Nativity Wall Hanging. The black was hand cut and appliqued onto the multi colored background.

Butterfly quilt was a wedding gift for my niece in 2015.  The blocks were boms from a local quilt shop. I designed the butterflies, flowers and vine separating the center blocks from the outer blocks. This was hand quilted and the blocks were machine quilted.

Valentine Wall Hanging. This one has tatted edging around hearts and embroidered hearts.

A Crazy Quilt Wall Hanging made with hexagons in 2009.

Mom's Chicken Quilt made in 2012. I think my sister kept this one when Mother went to heaven. It is all hand applique.
As one can see I love to Crazy Quilt and hand applique.  These are just a few of my quilts and usually work about an hour a day. I have many other projects so one is not bored!! (:   Hope you enjoyed my show as I have enjoyed all of yours!  Thanks for hosting Whims And Fancies!!!
