HERE ARE THE TOP FIVE...I WILL BE WORKING ON!

#1 VICTORIAN SUMMER
 #1 This is the Victorian Summer Quilt...always takes a while to complete.  I have to work in sections because of the hand work requires moving the pcs around a lot.  There will be more details later...this goes to the Cape Retreat in Feb....should get more done on this!




#2  This is the hand embroidery quilt....each block has been done...just echo quilting in all the spaces.  This is actually almost done.




#3 This is a 1000 pc kit that I purchased years ago...a lot has been done since the photo. When you buy a kit...the fabric colors are not always what you want...I THOUGHT about changing the colors...but QUICKLY dumped that idea once the numbers started rolling in.!  I had to put pieces in number sequences like 100-200 etc in baggies so the pieces could be found!






Years ago I had this brain storm to buy kits and try them out....#2 were stitchery blocks..#3 a kit.
The idea was to model different ways to get started with making quilts...the embroidery quilt is the first one...I have enough blocks to make a second quilt...the blocks are ALL done. #3 quilt came with the fabrics marked to be cut out and they all have numbers...the white muslin came marked and numbered...just follow the tree of life pattern. I KNOW...WHAT WAS I THINKING???....Just that "OH THIS WON'T TAKE LONG"..."EASY PEASY"....HA...and that is how they became a UFO!
