For Sarah and Nick, before their first anniversary…

Sarah and Nick were married in October, 2016, in a lovely ceremony in Lancaster, PA.  They said they liked darker colors, so I tried to honor that, as well as Sarah’s vibrant personality and Nick’s passion and compassion.

It is currently on its way to Delaware to keep them cozy this fall.


A Birthday Quilt for Lincoln

One of my colleagues has a little boy who is turning 2 next month.  Every kid can use another blanket, right?  And the fabric was calling out for lightning bug trails…  Hope he will have as much fun tracing them as he has chasing the real things when he gets a little bit older.

Quilt 3

The assignment was to take a traditional block and play with it/modernize it, so here it is.  This one is a little too long/too skinny right now, but is currently unquilted so I will play with the proportions before I move on.

Quilt 2

Quilt top 2…  Improv which is a pretty good way to use up a lot of scraps from other quilts that are sitting in a box on the floor.  And now I’ll know to match up the cross strips even though “scrappy” is valued.wolf_reefstrings_quilttop_lesson2

Then it was really late and I had some extra fabric on the table so made a little piece – 15″ x 20″ more or less… I like it better!wolf_colorsquare-lesson2

Dream City

December 2016

A couple of Christmas presents I just finished.  The first is for Dan to hang up at work.  The  boats are for Dad.  Each is about 8″ x 12″ with rings for hanging on the back.  Big quilts sitting upstairs that need to be sandwiched then quilted; a little distraction seemed to be in order…  ;-]
