This is machine applique. It was a lot of work but so much fun. This pic is trying to decide on the layout of the blocks
Just Plain Fun entered in 2022 Plano Quilt Festival. Received Honorable Mention Ribbon. Inspiration - Missouri Star Quilt - Radiance
This pattern can be made doing one dog as a pillow - 4 like I did for a throw or 12 as a large bed size. Four was plenty for me.
This guy was so much fun to put together. It's one of the first art pieces I did. He comes for a visit every fall. I love doing a kit. Takes a lot of the guess work out, but they won't win a competition
This was one of the hardest piecing quilts I had done. It was a mystery quilt by Edyta Sitar. It was so much fun to do!!

This collage piece started out as a panel greyed out directing value placement. It's addicting and you just can't stop. This piece was fun to do and placed 3rd place in it's category at the Plano Quilt Festival 2021.
With permission from the designer these were blown up to about 42" x 54" each. These angels sang to my heart calling me to the light. I dedicated them to our church to remind us that there are angels that live among us.
This technique was so much fun to do. The fabric is cut to perhaps 1/2" squares and applied to sticky paper, then covered with tulle. Add borders, quilt along the "grout" lines (spaces between the fabric squares) and add binding.
This was my first paper pieced project and I fell in love with the process. You sew the fabric right onto the paper following the lines in numbered ordered. I look forward to doing more paper piecing.
May these pieces inspire you, as they did me, to follow and trust, not knowing the outcome, but being humble and grateful for the journey. I used the wave technique from
"Layered Waves" by Karen Eckmeier.
