Lone Star

This is one of my first quilts made in about 1978. I tackled a difficult pattern right off the bat! It's machine pieced and hand quilted by me. Back when I hand quilted everything I made. I think I started this quilt first and then started the Postage Stamp Quilt at about the same time. 62" x 62". The colors came from memory of the hills from a trip out to eastern Montana. All the grass, cottonwood trees, dirt and sagebrush.

Embroidered Quilt

This is a small wall quilt. 21" x 32" I hand embroidered this and machine pieced. Made in about 1997. Not the best shot but it's winter and I can't get outside for photos. It's about 20 degrees!
