Below is my Around the Blocks quilt, which was renamed to Follow Your Arrow. It was published in Fons and Porter's Quilts from Quiltmaker 100 Blocks magazine in the Spring '17 issue.
Kit purchased at a quilt shop in West Yellowstone. Made for my husband.
This was my block submittal that ended up in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks volume 14 issue, winter 2016.
Sassy Sister was published and selected as the cover quilt for the Fall 2016 issue of Quilting Quickly.
Checkered Past was published and selected as the cover quilt for the Fons and Porter's Easy Quilts July/August 2016

I was quite busy after the kids' visit in December 2015. I designed this one from two simple blocks and called it Dandelions. It is in the July/August 2016 issue of McCall's Quilting.
This is the larger version of the pattern I named Edinburgh Square. Named after the city where my son and his family are living currently. McCall's decided to use it in the magazine rather than the smaller version. We will see when it comes out spring of 2016.
I made this Remembrance quilt from the shirts of a co-worker's husband. He passed away in 2014 from Parkinson's. She brought me the shirts the day I retired. I finished it in February 2015. I believe it really touched her heart.
