Even more girl gang

I wanted to show you a couple of things I've been working on. This is a quilt that I started exactly 1 year ago and finally completed this week. It began at a Quilt Retreat up at Daniel's Summit and was a 'mystery' quilt, so I didn't know what it was going to grow up and be. (For the record, it was way too much work for what it grew up to be!) In any case, it's done except for the label.

This is what's on the design wall. Also, begun a long time ago. It's from a book called, "Dealer's Choice" and the pattern is "Texas Hold 'Em" and I think it's turning out pretty well. Our youngest Carissa, has a room done in pink and brown and this will look great at the foot of her bed. I bought all the fabric at a darling quilt store in Boulder, Nevada called, "Fiddlesticks".

Our daughter Caitlyn has a best friend, Lindsey who is having a baby boy later this Fall and this is the quilt that she wanted to make her. That's code for, "Mom will you make my friend a baby quilt?"
It's off to the quilter to be quilted and then I'll bind it next week when I get it back. Caitlyn's friend is like one of the family, so I don't mind at all making her a quilt. We're all excited to meet this little guy. The fabric is, "The Cow Jumped Over the Moon" and is cuter in 'real life' than in this photo.


  1. Those quilts brought back memories. I remember sitting next to you at Daniels Summit as you put the first quilt together. And I remember helping you pick out the fabrics for the 2nd quilt when we were in Boulder City. Love those pinks and browns together.
    The third one turned out very cute, and will be perfect for the baby.

  2. Judi, these quilts are all amazing! I love the red on the first one, but now I'm curious... What did it grow up to be?

  3. Aw cute quilts! I've never been to Daniels Summit. Some time I will for sure. The baby quilt is darling. I met 2 people the other day that have baby quilts I made for my daughters to give them. Weird to meet someone that I didn't know at all and they have a quilt from me.
