When I first started “quilting”, I wanted to make quilts that looked like serapes. Serapes are so colorful and quite beautiful.

These are some that I made, and then put them in the closet and forgot about them. Well, I am getting the bug again to try and make a Mexican quilt. Except this time I will use premium fabric. These have faded with only one washing and have not even been used.

The turquoise one with the red rose in the center was my very first one that I made. I hand quilted it and enjoyed every minute of it.  Hand quilting is very relaxing. Now I can see that I needed more roses and they probably  should be bigger.

This one has  more of a southwestern look with more hand quilting.

You can’t see the thread that I used, but it was a metallic gold.

This last one is more of a strip quilt and I even put fringe on it.  Now, I would make the fringe different. There’s way to much of it, and it needs to be thinner.
