This traditional pieced block quilt takes me back to my traditional roots. My great grandmother taught me to quilt when I was very young and she made traditional pieced blocks. This quilt has been hand quilted in the traditional 1/4" away from the seam line using a wool batting and neutral quilt thread.

I created the center blocks (front & back) for this bag during the 11/18 workshop (Slice of Improv), with Mel Beach. When she suggested combining “stack, whack & shuffle” with her method of “slice & insert”, and introduced us to Pi, the idea popped into my head. I had a layer cake, in my stash, that I hadn’t known what to do with. This seemed the perfect application. I created the Pi block, for my friend, who is a retired math teacher. The day of the workshop just happened to be her birthday. The bag will be a Christmas gift, for her. After the workshop, I finished off the two blocks by bordering and free-motion quilting them. I made an inside pocket, lining, and handles, then added a hidden magnetic snap, and voila! A bag!

Bonnie Hunter Mystery 2015. As busy as I've been during the pandemic, I decided there are too many tops for me to quilt and I'd like to get them done. This is the first quilt that I have ever had someone else quilt for me. Donn McKnight, Los Osos Quilting Co., did a great job. I'm back on his list to have more done. The best part is that I used Christmas fabrics for this mystery and now the quilt is on the guest bed - ready for the holidays

I completed eight table runners, seven of which are thank you gifts for my outgoing board of Soroptimist International of SLO. Sizes range from 10.5 x 48 to 17 x 44. Most are approximately 13 x 36. I asked each member to give me an idea of either season, holiday, or theme.
