This is a Bargello quilt that I made this past winter.  It is made of Batiks that I found in Hancocks of Paducah's catalog as a fat quarter bundle.  So all I had to do was buy 4.  I have entered it to be in the Quilt Expo in Des Moines.  I will be honored if it is even selected to be in the show.

Garden Twist

I made this quilt a in 2010. I have always admired the pattern and fell in love with the peony fabric and so this quilt was born.  I taught the class for Jacque at Adel Quilting last spring.

Cactus Flower and French Braid

I made this from fabric hand dyed by Kate Hardy of Ames, IA.  She did a wonderful job.  It was quilted by Michele Pettorini of Des Moines, IA.  It won Best of Show at the Adel Quilting and Dry Goods Quilt Show some years ago.
The Quilt below is called French Braid.  I made it for my daughter and son-in-law's 10th wedding anniversary.  It was also quilted by Michele Pettorini.  Meridith took the picture at a park in Wisconsin.
