A little 12" X12"

This is a small quilt I made to "practice" the tiled background.  I added the little blue bird nest to add a touch of color to the very wintery look.

Sew Batik Challenge NQA 2014

This is such a fun quilt, traveling right now but I am missing it. I had posted this on this blog sometime ago but thought it worth another share.

Another thread painting

"A New Look for  Hobbit"
 Many years ago I went on a "girl only"  pack trip into the Beartooth Mountains, we packed in with llama's. My very sweet llama  was Hobbit.  I used a photo I had taken of him on that pack trip. It was only after I finished this quilt that I realized Hobbit is really much darker in color.  I believe it was the reprinting of my photo that changed his color.  That is how I came up with the title for this quilt.

TAGY Monthly Challenge

The River Challenge
 The TAGY monthly challenge is a 12" X 12" quilt, each month we have chosen a theme. For this challenge it was "River".  We all made our river going in and out of the quilt the same width, we hung these so the river flowed into the next quilt.
