Good morning.  The snow has stopped.  I am plowed out.  All is well.  Today, I’m going to show you some quilts that I have made in the past.  I hope that you enjoy them.

This is a Hunter’s Star made with Deb Tucker’s Rapid Fire Hunter’s Star ruler.  Several years ago, my Maine chapter of the Pine Tree Guild challenged us to make a red and white quilt.  I searched for days for a pattern and came across a picture of a red and white Hunter’s Star in one of my books,  It was just what I wanted.  Deb’s ruler made the blocks accurate and the star points met perfectly.


This is a beginner and ender quilt.  It has 2″ squares that I sewed together before and after piecing something else. Sewing beginners and enders prevent the machine from eating the fabric. It seems as if a queen size quilt was pieced with no effort. One of my daughters admired this quilt and received it for Christmas this year. I still have a big bag of 2″ squares and may start another one,  If I orient the squares differently, it will look like a different quilt.


I needed a quilt that went with a wall hanging and the red room.  This quilt is so easy to make.  Squares are sewn together in a pattern.  A template is rotated to cut each new square and they are sewn together in order.  The best part is that the cut off pieces, if kept in order, can be cut and a smaller version of the quilt can be pieced.
