Quilts for the Girls From Haiti

Today I got to meet 2 new friends.  Edelyne and Eunise Pierschbacher.  My office had a party for the newly adopted daughters of Philip and Ginger Pierschbacher.  Philip is the Ass't Superintendent for the Tulare City School District.  He and his wife had been in the process of adopting 2 girls from Haiti.  They started the process before the Earthquake that was several years ago.  They have lived in a church Orphanage since they were very young.  Well they finally got to come to the United States last week.

Here is a picture of the gifts that the office put together.  The gift bags had hats, bracelets, hair clips and a gift certificates to Kohl's for each of them.  We also gave them a gift certificate for the Family to go to the Zoo.  And for the Big Kahuna Frozen Yogurt.  Yum.

Something else that I did along with Barbara Sindlinger, was give them a Quilt.
Here they are along with their new Dad and their Quilts.  Barbara made the Pink and Gray one.  And I made the Yellow and Gray one.  They were very overwhelmed.  But excited too.

Peacock Feathers

I made this quilt for the Common Threads Challenge 2013.  We were to use only Solid Fabrics.  As you can see I used only one solid Fabric.  There were several different categories that were being Judged by the members.  Mine got the Favorite Traditional Small Quilt.  But the funny thing is, I got a vote for Most Colors Used! Ha!  Go Figure.
Anyway I thought I could also use it in my HyperQuilting Class.

Excentric Quilt

Here is a Quilt I made for a class at Thimble Towne.  It's called the Excentric Block.  Unfortunately the class didn't take place.  No one signed up for the class.   It's from Anita Grossman Salomon's Book.  Revolutionary Rotary Cutting.  All of the Blocks are from 1 fabric of Stripes.  It's fun to see how they all turn out.

Baby Junio Quilt

OK I'm going to try this again.  Barbara got after me today about not posting on my Blog.  She said it won't take long.  You will still have some time to Quilt.  Oh sure...  Well my Wifi went out right in the middle of me trying to post.  Ha!  My luck!

So here is a baby quilt I made for my Co-Worker Michelle Junio.  She is going to have a baby boy in September.

It turned out pretty cute.  She is decorating the Nursery in Turquoise and Red.

Here is a Quilt Sample for my Class at Thimble Towne.  It is called HyperQuilting.  And it's taking place on June 22nd.  I'm looking forward to teaching this class.  It's really fun to do.
