  11. I'm a newbie quilter and fmq'er so I don't have too many completed projects to choose from yet. However, I did just finish a mini 29 x 29 quilt to hang in my stairwell that is a large star that I fmq'ed, and I'm pretty darn pleased with how it turned out!

  16. Someone sent me a box of 1.5" strips that exploded when I opened it, all tangled and wrinkled. The note enclosed said, "I'm sending you this quilt kit..." Well, I patiently pressed all the strips and laid them out on the bed and sewed and sewed and sewed, making the cutest, sweetest little baby quilt for a young friend. I'd have to say that was my favorite project.

  18. I made a very cool queen sized Halloween quilt for my brother last year. He was born on Halloween and helps me out with projects at my house so this was a little extra payback for all his help.

  21. "...telling me your [ ] project you've ever made." Fill in the blank, huh? Cool. I'll tell you about the WORST project I've ever made. It was a lovely floral pin that combined a quilted base with petals and all kind of glitzy embellishments. It actually was beautiful--and the recipient agreed; however, it ended up being about five inches wide. I wonder if she put it on the wall? Now I'll choose the CRAZIEST project I ever made. It was a quilt I hand made one day when my little daughter and I were sick with the flu and camped out on the couch. I'd made her a little stuffed cat doll; so naturally I had to make a tiny quilt, right? I pieced together one-inch fabric samples! Nuts and difficult. But I finished and quilted it and even added tiny fringe. Thanks for asking! --Laura

  26. Several years ago, my sister and I were on a 'girls weekend' trip. We saw a pin in a quilt shop. Later on, for her birthday, I copied and made the pin for her from a doily, yo-yos, and scrap fabrics. Thanks for the opportunity.

  27. I made a lap quilt for a very dear friend who kept it close to her till the end. It was the most appreciated gift I ever made.

  28. Most recently I made some wonky house blocks for a friend. It sure was a challenge because I attempted raw-edge applique, which I had never tried before. She was thrilled with the blocks, so I guess I did a good job. -- soparkaveataoldotcom

  44. I like to work on table toppers and wall hangings that include hand applique. I'm currently working on a fall runner using blacks, oranges, and gold for a scrappy look. Pumpkins, vines and leaves will be appliqued on the long borders.
