Quilts on the Rack

I've had a couple of requests to give a better look at the quilts that I have on the quilt racks in the previous post.  So here they are:

This one is called It's Just A Nine Patch. The nine patches in this quilt finish at 1 1/2" inches.  Someone wrote me saying they were part of the Nine Patch Nuts group on Yahoo that was started by one of the Dear Jane group.  I'm in that group, too.  The ribbon on the quilt was for Judge's Recognition. 
This is my green Nearly Insane called Lime Phosphate.  Over on my Flickr page, I have photos of some of the individual blocks. 
This is called Fall Foliage Spectacular from the Judy Martin book Cookies 'N Quilts. 
This is my round robin quilt.  I believe the year was 2005. There were 6 of us in the group that year, and all of the quilts were amazing.  I'm in a group again this year, and in less than a month we will all have our own quilts returned to us.  I can't wait to see mine.

This is my Dear Jane signature quilt from 2002.  I had to wait almost a full year after joining the Dear Jane list before I could sign up for the signature swap.  I love this quilt.  

Here are a few close ups of the blocks.



 Some of these blocks really have a lot of work on them.  This one has glitter on the butterfly.
 This one from Massachusetts has a lighthouse.  I love that Kaffe fabric.
 This one from Holly has little red beads sewn on the wreath for the holly berries. 
 This one from Texas has the Texas flag drawn on it.
 This one has a little history from the state.
 This one from Alaska has a moose theme with the stamp on the signature part that matches the fabric.
 This one is unique and has a lot of work on it. 
I had so much fun with this first signature swap that I signed up for the next one in 2003.  Those are still in the bag...maybe that will be a good winter project.

Hope you are all finding some time to stitch today.

What is wrong with those judges...I see no ribbon on your FANTASTIC "Lime Phosphate" quilt!!! SHOCKING!! And I've commented on your round robbin before...it is stunning...did you eneter that one? If not, you should. I really like what you did with your signature blocks...your setting is supportive, but not overwhelming...very nice. What a treasure from that particular quilt journey.

In stitches,
Teresa :o)
