Quilts Beginning and Ending

These two quilts just came back from Dena the Longarmer.  An old Second Saturday Sampler quilt, finished at last with Baptist Fan quilting:

and this one, a study in colors and fabric print texture:

I have been gradually cataloging my books on quilting (and related subjects, like samplers and hooked rugs), using MediaDB:
This is probably an inevitable home activity for a trained librarian, right?  Plus I have reached the point where I am not sure if I have a book I'm thinking of getting, so this way I will consult my home catalog.


Most pictures that I take of Jack make me think of Disney's Night on Bald Mountain in Fantasia:
and as always Rembrandt is, well, Rembrandt:
I've been seeing quilt ideas almost every day that I want to start.  What an addictive madness this is!  And so begins the Oak Leaf and Reel project:

Beautiful quilts made even more lovely by the quilting.

Would love to have contact info for Dena the Longarmer... my LAQ won't try Baptist Fans...

Love your new project you have started...very pretty. Nice quilts also! It always feels good to start something as well as finish something, doesn't it!

Oh this disappearing box has reappeared! Rembrandt always has the funniest faces! Your quilts turned out beautiful. Great to get the quilted, right? I adore your Oak Leaf! The fabric is divine!

Is this a pattern you are designing? If not, what pattern is it?

Oh how happy Baptist fans do make me . . . . someday I shall do some for myself *s*

Jack definitely has the Halloween cat look down pat. I just adore Rembrandt. She may be related to Remy the Character! Great finishes & beginnings!!
