Flag Quilt with Hearts

This small quilt, 16 in square, was made for the Quilt Alliance 2016 contest.  The theme this year is playing favorites.  I happen to love flag quilts.  I also am fond of scrape quilts and this one uses multiple red and beige fabrics.   It is machine pieced and quilted.

First Quilt of the Year

Started this quilt in December 2015 and finished just after the first of the year.  It is machine pieced and quilted.  It measures approx 40 in X 51.5 in.  I haven’t yet decided who will get this quilt.

The next few photos show some of the details.  In this section can be found eggs, spools of threads, a pink poodle,  and words like fun, haunt, and creep.

In this one — fireworks, a cat, a couple, faces, and Arkansas basketball.

In this one carolers, dogs, car fender, and a motorcycle.

This is the back.  It is pieced with the center being an old linen calendar from 1958.

The pattern for this white hat is Hermione Hearts Ron by Christy Aylesworth. The yarn is HiKoo by skacel Simplicity.

The last three photos are of a hat knit using the pattern Lace Tam by Lois Young.  The yarn is Crystal Palace Yarns Sausalito.  This photo is from the top. 

This photo is from the underside.
