Charming Log Cabin

This quilt is from a pattern by Threaded Pear Studio called Charming Log Cabin. It's basically a very large Log Cabin block. I bought this as a kit at the Fabric Center in West Jordan, UT in the summer of 2007. The fabrics are from the Coverlet Collection by Mary Koval. I finished the quilt before moving to Washington and finally got it quilted last year. Mom brought it out to me at Thanksgiving 2008. It's the first time I have done a scalloped edge - it was not easy. This is one of my favorite quilts!

Kansas Troubles

This quilt was made out of some Kansas Troubles charm squares. I pieced the quilt by hand. I also quilted it by hand. I completed it during the 2006-2007 school year, when I was living in Santa Clarita, CA.

Satin Purses

Several years ago I made some purses for my friend Holly's two girls Sadie & Emma. On one side I embroidered their initials and decorated it. Sadie's Purse

Emma's Purse
Holly stashed the purses away and they haven't really been able to use them. I wish I had known more about putting together purses and bags when I made them, but they turned out okay.
