LIKE A WHEEL WITHIN A WHEEL

LIKE A WHEEL WITHIN A WHEEL 1

LIKE A WHEEL WITHIN A WHEEL 2

LIKE A WHEEL WITHIN A WHEEL 3
LIKE A WHEEL WITHIN A WHEEL 4
Almost like gears the overlapping circles of life and connection.

Quilts for my grandchildren

For Jenelle who loves color and nature



For Nicole (she likes a band called Gears)



For Nate who is a patriotic dude

For Ben who has a blue room

For Matt who picked out the red, yellow and blue color scheme
When our youngest grandchild, Max, was born, I made him a quilt or two while relearning how to sew. These are the quilts for the rest of our grandchildren. Next up, quilts for two great grand daughters, but first I need finish another set of quilts and then get back to painting for a while.

T-shirt quilt


This is a T-shirt quilt I made for my grand daughter Rachel from her high school T-shirts.

I've now made quilts for each of my sisters and each of my children (except one- still thinking about yours, Lizz). My grandson Max has a quilt or two and this is Rachel's- only five grandchildren to go. Those won't all be T-shirt quilts. I need to consult with them about preferences.

Bird quilts





I made these with my sisters in mind. They each have a bird quilt and so do I.
