Free Pattern and this and that to inspire....

The turkey above was taken from a friend's yard...isn't this cute and wouldn't it make a great quilt? Inspiration is every where!
-----------------------------------
I thought I would share some photos while I clean out my files to make more room for new photos. I can't delete anything without thinking about it and there are some good things here to share with you....some of them "again" but we have so many new people in here that it might feel like the first time they saw it. :0)
Isn't amazing how a stripe fabric can make a simple block look complicated...this was from a border done by Giner DeValue in a class of mine....her color sense was great too!This was a quilt photo that someone sent me a long time ago. I have kept it in my files because it is so darling..... Great idea for a story and a nice memory of MomAs you already know I LOVE angels and they are even lovlier with leaves, birds and colors of Autumn.....This angel has a smile on her now..she is tucked away somewhere....
Here is a closeup of some Hoochy Mama blocks I was fooling around with...love those brights!
The word below was put together by my friend Pam Hansen. I wanted some samples for quilts and also for the new book. She did this scrappy with bright colors and I love it....it is going to be in a quilt one of these days for fun! great job Pam.Had to show this quilt again that was done by Carol from Panama. This was before she got all of the faces and embellishments on it. The colors are so pretty. This is my block of the month pattern for angel lovers. :0)
Here is a better view of Gretchen's quilt from my John C. Campbell "Plaid to Meet You" class. Just wait until January and I will have my plaids for sale here...they are so pretty!
I wanted to enlarge this pretty quilt to show you the details and color. As it says in the right column it was made for her daughter's friend. isn't this a nice gift? This is an older pattern of mine that I did for a magazine....just thought you might like the idea of cats and birds and leaves and color and plaids.... free pattern below

It is always fun to come to your site and see all of the wonderful quilts. I love the idea of making personalized quilts for family and friends. I actually have that kitty pattern in my files, I found it online somewhere.

Found the site and thought you might want to share it with visitors. I never saw the color version of it.
