Thanks, Gwen! I started my second Baltimore last June and am just finishing block 10. I'm hoping this one won't take 22 years! What are you working on that will need the pretty folded buds? They're so sweet. If you're interested, there is a hand quilting group on this site called Around the Frame. There's a lot of good discussion on there about a variety of topics. Come check us out!
Thanks, Gwen. I loved making the Pennsylvania Sunburst quilt. It was the first quilt I made after I retired and moved to OH. I modified the pattern so the quilt would fit on my king sized bed. I had it professionally machine quilted. Your quilts are so creative and beautifully quilted. You really have a gift.
Thanks Gwen. Yes it is a pineapple pattern. Somewhere in my stuff that is still packed away I have the foundation masters. It is on my list of quilts to make for myself. When we finished the one pictured I was very tired of foundation piecing.
Gwen, your work is extraordinary! It's too hard to pick a favorite, but I'd have to say your self-portraits are striking. May I ask what part of Ohio are you in? I'm SE of Cleveland. Are you anywhere close? I'd love to meet you sometime.
Thanks, Gwen! As of this morning it is in the hands of the person taking it to be hung in the quilt show this Saturday, along with my chocolate quilt, the mustang, and the red FMQ wholecloth quilt that I did for my December FMQ assignment.
I've got another beach scene that I'm working on for my mother that is in process, since she fell in love with this one. I won't make it exactly the same, but had enough left of the fabrics to use the same ones, along with a sail, bird, and fence posts. But I cut them differently and will try to get the feel of the piece to be similar while making it actually look a bit different.
