My DIL improved these quilted animals I made, by adding better felt eyes. The baby's room looks great!

Batik Quilt
Most of of the colored strips are left overs from other quilts. I bought the lighter batiks as a birthday present to myself a few years back.  A dear friend now has a long arm quilting machine and she let me use it to finish this quilt!

Quilted Tote
I saw a pattern to make a decorative pillow using torn fabric, sort of a rag quilt. I thought this would make a great tote, so that's what I did.

Quilt for Comfort Quilters
This quilt was made with fabrics donated to our group. I fell in love with the large floral panel.
