2012 Quilts

Click on any of the photos to enlarge.

My version of "Going to Market", completed very early January, 2012.

This  throw-size quilt was begun nearly 15 years ago, partially hand quilted and bound, then left unfinished until early this year when I completed quilting it with free motion machine quilting practice.  A utility quilt!

First of the grandchildren's quilts.  My new year's resolution, aside from SewCalGal's 2012 FMQ Challenge, was to make a bed size quilt for each of our six grandchildren.



This queen size quilt was completed for my daughter in April, all free motion quilted using motifs learned during the first three months of the 2012 FMQ Challenge.

Toddler quilt.


"Catkin Scales the Pyramids" - for our youngest grandson.


"Every boy needs the cover of a superhero sometimes" for our six-year-old grandson.


"Quilting Footballs" - another grandson quilt.


For our oldest grandson, and the last bed sized quilt completed in 2012.


Our October FMQ Challenge - this little quilt will hang on my sewing room door.


The November FMQ Challenge - Spirals - small table topper or wall hanging for the sewing room.


Our December FMQ Challenge - wall hanging or table topper.


Bonus FMQ Challenge piece using our eldest grandson's art work.  This one will hang in the sewing room!



Last, but definitely not least, this little log cabin hand pieced and quilted ornament that I found this summer, just as it was left, partially pieced, 30 years ago when I left for the hospital for the birth of my daughter.  She received it in her birthday card this December!
