I absolutely love James Ayers Art, he is magnificent....I painted this from one of his. I'm still learning and his work is so outstanding, I just had to try it. I think he paints with oils.

When we were in Texas in April. Our Friend Darren Mason said "I want a Scrappy Quilt, that I can wrap up in on my couch" well you know that's all one has to say to this Obsessive Compulsive Quilter.....I started thinking immediately. Came home and pulled Civil War Repo fabrics, then what design. Came up with a Strip pieced idea, I pieced the center strips, and even Paper pieced the Circle Star which is the name of his Ranch and his cattle brand. I appliqued it in the top right corner. He and his wife loved the quilt. He even paid me for it. yippee!
I wanted to make a quilt I saw in a book "Sunday Morning Quilts" even tho I didn't have enough whites, and you know I love brights. Here is mine. I used lots of different fabrics, mainly modern fabrics I bought from Owl & Drum, Tulsa, OK. I stabilized the quilt using machine stitching, then I hand quilted Long Stitches with different colors of Pearl Cotton. Mountain Mist Cream Rose batting, makes a quilt so comfy. I love this quilt
This is a Christmas Quilt that I made for "Miss Christmas girl" it's a surprise for her. Hope she likes it, it was 6 yrs in the making. The embroidery is all hand done, even my friend Janis helped on this one. We got so tired of it, I put it up for a few years. Determined to get it finished this year. It's finished. Yeah!
