Quilts pieced and quilted by Betty Baker.
Savannah Stars - Started
this one at the "Chillin Out" retreat hosted by the Cotton Patch of Tulsa
- Jan 2001. This had about 40 different fabrics. This top is ready
to be quilted. [ha - get in line!]. Designed by Cynthia Regone.
Machine pieced by Betty Baker - 2001 (not quilted yet).
Flower Garden variation is ready to quilted. All of the flower
petals, stems and leaves are appliqued with a hand button-hole
This one is even basted, and ready to go! (really is hard to get
excited about sitting under a quilt when it's been a hundred degrees
Jul 2004 - OK, it's not new anymore! Still not quilted!
This traditional pattern, "Pineapple",
is a string-pieced style quilt. The reds and whites are 'scrappy'
with only the corners using the same fabrics. This one could use a
few more blocks, and is not quilted yet.
3/2007 - Finished putting blocks together
2013-Finally picked a border fabric, and backing is prepared.
This is the one I am working on
now. It's to be a KING sized quilt for Rachael, who is getting
married this August (2001). I have promised to have the top done by
the wedding date. The fabrics are the same colors as in Savannah
Stars, only there are over 75 different fabrics. A king sized quilt
takes 199 of the melons [or footballs]. [5/2001-Those are
all pieced and I'm in process of sewing two melons to X piece].
Jan 2005 - Still not finished piecing, BUT I did take a class
from Shar Jorgensen to figure out why I'm having problems finishing it.
Seems I'm using "crow bars" (as Shar called my yellow headed pins)
to pin those intersections. She gave me some fine point pins, and
all of a sudden the intersections work! No more excuses!!
