More Show and Tell

for my long dreaded--I mean anticipated--talk on charity quilting.  (That's coming up on August 1.)  I've been busy quilting tops that had been hanging in the closet and also trying to make new tops.  Here are the latest:

The ballerina bear was taken from a dress-up bear pattern from Sindy Rodenmayer at

These little monsters were taken from a much more complex pattern by an Australian designer. 

The animals on this quilt were also designed by Sindy Rodenmayer.  They were part of her African quilt pattern.

Every turtle on this quilt has a twin, so it's not just a quilt--it's a game!
I was inspired by quilts made by my friends, Debi and Jan, to make my own version of the Ritzy Crackers quilt.  Rather than using charm squares, I cut the pieces from scraps of animal prints.

Love your take on the Don't Look Now Monster's quilt. Make sure you send Kellie a picture (or post it to her flickr page) she loves to see finished quilts

All your quilts are lovely, but I especially like your monster quilt. I voted for Avery's Daisy quilt at the Quilting Gallery. I thought it was the perfect girl's quilt!
