This is Eleanor Burn's "Day and Night" quilt pattern. It is a wedding gift for my nephew and his bride. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. This is the first free motion quilting I've done other than a large meander. Also attached a picture of the label on the back. I blocked out their last name for their protection. It sure looks great in their room.

Kim was a gymnast at a school that has a fabulous gymnastics programs. Lots of state championships, and great memories. Two of her leotards are in the middle, and some of the sashings are made from the waistband of a pair of pants, or little bags they had made for their gear. April 2010
Victor was in the Univ of Ill marching band. The sashings are blue multi-colored, and the back is orange U of I fabric. I used a pantograph that has trumpets and saxophones. He played the trumpet, and his wife played the sax. I have her t-shirts too - for a second quilt - someday!!
Made from flag nylon for a friend who is absolutely Halloween crazy. They decorate their house for Halloween like most people do for Christmas. Oct 2009
I made this for a friend after her husband passed away. It's from all of his ties, plus his picture in the middle. The border is from the narrower part of the ties. The backing is navy with a maroon paisley print - looks like a pattern that would be used on ties. This is one of the first things I quilted on my new Gammill machine. 50" square - Feb 2010
I finally got a long-arm machine. What a fabulous new "toy". I named her Gertie!! Lots of learning to do here.
