A bed without a quilt is like a sky without stars.

Baby quilts...
nothing more fun to make.
I made this little quilt
for my great nephew Robbie,
 from plaid fabric a friend gave me,
and then I added some more plaids
from little boys shirts.
I haven't made many traditional quilts this year.
I've been concentrating on art quilts.
My Mermaid is now at the  
 Celebration of Quilts 2012
show at the Conner museum
at the university.

The next few days I will be showing you
some photos of some of the other quilts.
Most are traditional quilts and all are lovely.
Here are a few to get you started.

This is Birds of Paradise
66" by 79"
June says,
"I had so much blue fabric in my stash
from a previous fish quilt I designed,
 that I will be quilting for the rest of my life!"
She is an art teacher and designs her own blocks.

Cats, cats, cats
49" by 49"
Nancy designed each block herself.
Each cat is looking out a window.
She said this was a fun quilt to make.
Really cute Nancy! 

Here's a close up of one of the blocks.

Be looking for more photos.

Savor the day!
