This is the center medallion for a quilt called "Enduring Love."  It is done with Civil War Reproductions.  The pattern is from Carol Hopkins.  I dreaded doing that circle of stars, but it turned out to surprisingly easy!!!!

Project Linus Quilts


These are 2 quilts that are for Project Linus.  The first is a Yellow Brick Road.

The second quilt is the pattern called "Jelly Roll Race." It is found at Missouri Star quilts tutorials.  It really is easy to do and fun!  My dog, Chloe, is admiring from afar!!

Laundry Room Tissue Cover

This is a tissue cover (boutique size) that I made to go in the laundry room.  What fun!!!  It is made with needlepoint stitches on plastic canvas, so it holds its shape.

Cloud Nine Quilt

This is a quilt from Cloud Nine Fabric pattern.  I used 12 Fat Quarters and have enough blocks (60) for another quilt.  Simple and easy to do.  It does take time though!  These will both go to Project Linus.

Project Linus in the New Year!

I have 3 quilts I'm sending to Project Linus.  The wedding ring panel has another one just like it. The littlest one is a Yellow Brick Road.  Only 4 more to be quilted and the stack can start growing again!

Plastic canvas and quilting

 One more Project Linus quilt!
 A Rubik's Cube tissue box holder.  I made this for my hubby for the table by his chair.  I'm loving this plastic canvas needlepoint.  This pattern came from here.
 
 
 
Here are quilt stars for the QOV I am working on for my hubby, who served in Vietnam.  The pattern is in this month's Fons and Porter For the Love of Quilting magazine.   I bought their quilt kit.

Last Project Linus Quilts for 2014







Here are the last of the Project Linus quilts for 2014.  I didn't keep a running tab of the quilts this year, so don't know the total.

Also shown in first picture is a snowman tissue box cover I made with needlepoint on plastic canvas. This one was a kit from Mary Maxim catalog.   Want to make one for every month with patterns I have found on the internet.

Thanks for looking and blessings in the New Year 2015!
