Kretsinger's Last Rose ... 73" x 74" ... 1999, completed in nine months.
Hand appliquéd using Templar and spray starch. Contains 328 berries. Machine quilted using Mountain Mist Blue Ribbon cotton batting.

Inspired by a quilt top made by Rose Kretsinger that I saw in Issue #292 of Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine. Rose never finished her top. I thought it was a wonderful design that should be in a finished quilt.

Fluer de Nine was supposed to become a quilt for the family Christmas exchange in 1999 but the family changed the rules. After making Kretsinger's Last Rose I needed something mindless to do, so I made the nine patches. After seeing "Bow Tie Bouquet" by Kathy Munkelwitz of Isle, MN in Quilter's Newsletter Magazine, March 2000 #320, I knew the border would work with my nine patches. I appliquéd the border preparing the pieces with templar and spray starch. The borders were hand appliquéd first and then attached to the nine patches.

Carolina Spring ... 81" x 100" ... Made in 1997
Machine Pieced, Machine Quilted on a Viking 6370 Mountain Mist Blue Ribbon Batting with Fairfield's low loft Polyester used in the Trapunto.

I made a quilt similar to this for my 16 year old niece for Christmas '96. I liked it so well I had to make one for myself.
