I pulled the quilts out of the trunk. These are all either ones I inherited or ones I made. You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.
No crazy quilts in the bunch, what a shame!
The oldest is the red & tan & beige one, there is a barn raiser, an altered 9 patch, the Sunbonnet Sue, the double wedding ring, and a quilt top that may have been made by a child.
The one's I made are 2 baby quilts - the grandmothers flower garden and the nine patch. Also the small quilt with 2 baskets & flowers. I made the log cabin one and the one next to it I called "Dakota Winter" because I made it (hand stitched) when living in a motorhome in North Dakota during the winter (long story) - the lavender and grays were inspired by barn tops... Oh and there's the one with the 6 pointed stars all by hand using paper template piecing.
I've made many other quilts, most all as donations to fundraisers.
That's it. I've gone completely crazy since those days though - I love crazy quilts, and like to make my little crazy quilt collages - I don't keep them - they all go to ebay or give away.
