 I finished this quilt that had been sitting around for a few years. It was a round robin (but I took off a couple of layers to make it smaller.

Crystal Blue

 The name of this quilt is Crystal Blue. I finished it in August after having pieced it several years ago mainly because I began quilting it with a long arm but the back got all tangled and I had to take out all the stitches. Finally quilted it with my regular machine. The quilting is free motion feathers.

Baltimore Memories

 This quilt top was finished 6 years ago but it took me until now to decide how to quilt it and actually sew.

When I lived near Baltimore, in Columbia, Maryland, I wanted to do a Baltimore album quilt but never found a pattern that I liked. After I moved to Oregon, I decided that I wanted to make it with birds and flowers that reminded me of my time in Columbia. i found a few patterns in books and others I designed myself.
