LUCKY STARS . This has a smudged black batik background with batik and hand dye stars. I still love it..
This is another quilt from a movie called A Gift of Love. An old Christmas movie. The concept is good, but when I look at it I wonder if I continue, will all of these hand dyes bleed all over the white? Probably. Back burner, or start again with different fabrics.
This is from a pattern called Interlocking Chains. Good idea, nice pattern. I think I bought this as a kit, and the fabric was cut wrong. It's been a long time since I worked on it, but it is colorful and interesting. It would make a good gift.
This is an Ohio Star quilt that I was making with hand dyes. The blocks are 6". I will finish this one.
This was going to be a nine patch gradation quilt. I'm thinking of changing it into a Jack's Chain. Black and Hand dyed fabrics

This is for a pinwheel quilt with hand dyed fabrics and black. Easily done, good gift.
These were big batik Hawaiian Applique blocks. It was a block of the month that was done by a local quilt shop several years back. They are hand appliqued.ELIZABETH ROOT. I am thinking now, that I will probably have a problem with the hand dyed fabrics bleeding onto the white. I am going to attempt to head it off at the pass, but, If I had to do it over again, I would definitely be more cautious about the materials that I have used for a lengthy, time consuming project.
I'm not much of a cat lover, but I do love cat patterns. Weird huh? Lot's of different fabrics, and it will make a good gift for one of my cat loving family or friends.IF YOU GIVE A MOUSE A COOKIE I bought this book, two mice, and will eventually make a themed kids quilt for a future gift.

And finally, this project that I found and forgot about. It is to make a quilt called "A Trip Around New York. I have used blacks and metallic cottons, and black prints in the spire sections.
I have come across more, which are on the memory card in my camera. I will post another bunch when I have enough.
So you see, I have many that are just too nice to get rid of. And I do still like all of them.
I would like to get a quilt ready for competition. I have been away from the game long enough. Mostly because I am lazy, and I have a day job that takes all of my energy, so that by the time I get home, all I want to do is slug on the couch and knit. That is another goal.
So, here are most of my ufo's what do you think?
