How about some quilting eye candy?  Here are a few more quilts I finished before my little vacation with the grand kids from Japan.  It has been a sad few days.  I said my good byes on Tuesday afternoon to them.  They left early Wednesday morning and have arrived back home safely in Japan today.  What a long trip by herself with a 6 year old and a 9 month old.  But I've buried myself in my quilting and not letting my mind wonder for a little bit.

Kathy made this quilt.  Stars are one of my favorites.  Don't you just love the tiny half square triangle border around it.

At Kathy's request, I quilted "Deb's Swirl" in Aquamarine thread.

Delia made this quilt for her granddaughter.  

I quilted "Spring Flowers" in flamingo pink thread.

You know this Texas Quilt stole my heart.  I love this pattern that uses a panel and focus fabric.

I quilted a Texas Star in the focus fabric blocks and then quilted Texas iconic things in between in the sashing.  Can you see the Texas Flag here?

And the Longhorn?

And the saddle?

The Alamo?

The armadillo?

The windmill?

The bluebonnets aren't as easy to see but they are there.

Texas the Lone Star State border

Anita is a girl after my own heart.  She does a lot of Civil War quilts.  I didn't like Civil War quilts at one time several years ago, but they have grown on me and I love most of them now.   Of course I like this one, it is lots and lots of stars.

And this last one is the table runner I made for my sister at Quilt Retreat in June.  I got it quilted just in time for her for the 4th of July.  It looks great on her long harvest table.
