Triple Irish Chain

Bonnie assembled these blocks and used the last few in an interesting design on the back.


This quilt was absolutely gorgeous and looked wonderful in person. The photo doesn't do it justice. Denise R. sent this one all ready to quilt and bind and it was my daughter Denise W.'s first time to quilt. She did a nice job on it.


I can't remember who put this one together, but it turned out to be very pretty and cheeerful. I believe it ended up being a lap quilt or baby quilt size.


This quilt was so pretty in person that my nutty husband asked me to make something similar for him later. This was one of the seven quilts that went to South Dakota.

Burgundy 9 patch

I love how nicely this quilt turned out. It was a queen sized quilt, very nice and warm. We used Warm and Natural batting in these. This is another one of Bonnie's quilts. Good, isn't she?

Cozy Blues

Our only all blue quilt was really warm and snuggly. One of the ladies who was being helpful decided to tie this instead of quilting it. I'm not sure why, but when it came back to me, I stitched over the top of each of the floss ties, just to keep them secured.


The top quilt is one the queen sized green and white quilts we made from all of those nifty 4 patch blocks that you all sent. Most of the girls who helped quilt these were beginners and all of them enjoyed helping and learning more.

We were sent several 10 & 1/2 inch Friendship Star blocks but didn't have enough for a whole quilt with just them. So we chose other types of blocks in similar colors and Bonnie took them all home to sew together. Then she made more Friendship Star blocks and made this great queen sized quilt. It turned out very well.
