This is "Baskets and Stars".  Each basket block has a star incorporated into in some manner.  This is made with flannels.  Doing Appliqu? with flannels is a lot of fun, but I was sure glad to get back to my regular cottons for fine needle turn appliqu?.  This pattern by "Joined at the Hip".  Hand pieced by Betty Baker in 2001.

Scrappy 9 patch closeup

This 9 Patch quilt is totally scrappy.? The red and white 9 patches are very scrappy.? There are fabrics going back to the beginning of my collection as well as newer fabrics.? The 'whites' are shirting type fabrics, but read as white from a distance.?? Gave to my brother Tom and his wife for Christmas 2005.

Texas Pride! Found this block of the month pattern at a quilt show in Oklahoma City in January 2003.  Thought this would be a perfect quilt for my new son-in-law who is from Texas. 

Well . . . now that we've moved to Texas, I don't think he is going to get this!   (sorry Robert!)

Machine pieced, hand-quilted.  Just finished the quilting (Nov 2004) and this will be in the West Houston Quilt Guild show in February 2005.

Christmas 2005- was a surprise gift for Robert!  After he expressed how much he liked it - guilt took over and he got it as a gift!
