Judy~

That's a beauty sampler. Are you looking for any more DIL's who really values hand made quilts? I make a real good DIL.

I did my first wall hanging and still have it on the wall going up the stairs.  It doesn't have very many matching points, and the fabric was very costly,  talk about humble .

I gave my frist quilt to an auction for a library fund raiser.  It was log cabin , in the design of hearts and the pillow line was houses.  I think it was called heart and home. ( I did teach a class on the pattern some years later.)  I also made a quilt as you go log cabin cabin Queen size for my son in Japan.  He really enjoyed it.  I havn't taken pictures of any of them.  I guess I really should have.

I have two different ones hanging now--they are both bulls eye quilts.  Both in need of quilting.  One is a wall hanging size--hanging in the entery way.  I have figured out how I will quilt it finally.. I think I will follow your lead and get the queen size, and get it professionaly done.

I guess I have strayed from part of the question.  My favorite quilted project is one that had moda fabric with some hand died fabrics.  I quilted the fabric as I read it.  Some of the water spots looked like water lillies, or dragon flies, one was a long eared rabbit-fishing. Some were fish shaped, ect.  Every other block was pieced and I stiched in the ditch or put an x thru the middleof the rectangle blocks.

Margaret we must be in the same family. No one in my family likes homemade anything except cookies LOL I made my sister a quilt for her 50th birthday a few years ago. I haven't seen it since. It took me hours and hours to make that quilt. It was an original. It was all about her grandchilden so I thought she would like it. WRONG! I asked her if I could borrow it last year for a show and tell. Her reply....I'll have to find it in the attic. When she gave it to me it was not evern completely in a plastic bag. It was in one of those grocery bags. Half the quilt was hanging out of the bag. The week before she told me they had a mice problem in their attic. Did I learn my lesson??? OH yes I did! Never again. It hurt me to give it back to her, but when you give a gift it is theirs to do as they please with it. I keep telling myself this over and over.

Sorry Prairie Dog, for getting confused, I do that so easily.  But I still THINK your granddaughter is awful sweet and a real cutie.  Ms. Cricket sends Maggie a big hug in return! Oh, you are so LUCKY! Me and Ms. Cricket are just pea green because we don't even have any neighbor little girls we can spoil only little boys, but they are sweet too! :)  We just feed them cookies. LOL!

Keep up those pics.  ME and Ms. Cricket love them.

Can you take two DIL's?, I know Diane asked First so of course she IN FIRST!!! But can I get in line behind her????  Or maybe the more the merrier.  Or like you need to make more samplers because you are so good at it and you are feeling generous.... I can give you all kinds of reasons, just let me know how many you need.  I make great tamales....

How sweet. Thank you Marlene.  Yes, it was a gift of love. One "problem" I've noticed with the quilts I've made for family is some of them don't actively use them. They display them nicely but say they don't want to ruin them. Good grief, use the quilts. Please. Wrap up in them,  wash them, sit on them, bunch them up, barf up on them. That's what they're for.

I guess my favorite is the giant Dahlia, but I have taken pictures of all the quilts I have made and that I have quilted for other people. I have three allbums with pictures of custom quilting jobs I have done and another album of all the quilts I have made myself for eiother myself or for other people as gifts.
