My Quilting Story--Part 4

So many of you left sweet comments about
and All parts of My Quilting story.
If you haven't read About my first Photo Quilt,
please take a moment to do so.

Thanks for all the nice comments and hugs and blessings.
I have really found a wonderful group of supportive,
caring friends in blogland!

After finishing my brothers quilt,
I decided to try my hand at regular piecing. 
Some of my favorite patterns were (are!)
 designs by M'Liss Rae Hawley

I made the following two quilts from her 
first Fat Quarter book:

I love them both so much.
They hang in my Creation Station for now.

I then went through a stage of loving wild, African prints.
I sold a beautiful, wild log cabin quilt at farmers market;
I sure wish I had photos of it.
(hmmm...I might just need to make another soon)
And here is an Egyptian quilt  
that I just mailed off to 

When I met Jerry, 
I knew that my first quilt for him had to be a photo quilt.
You can read about that RIGHT HERE

I opened a store on Etsy a couple of years ago.
I was all prepared to settle in and sew sew sew for people.
God had other plans, as I found out I was expecting about a month later.
I spent a good deal of my pregnancy in bed,
but I was able to fill a few photo quilt orders.
Here are a few favorites:
This little girl was a Preemie. 
I got the photos of the net and her mom was very surprised!!

A HUGE Diamond anniversary quilt.
All the photos were black and white. 
Absolutely georgous!

An army quilt for a friend who was in the REAL
Black Hawk Down operation.

I have so many more that I could show you,
each with a story of their own!
