These are photos of a new quilter's Pioneer Sampler Quilt. Its an Eleanor Burns quilt that was started in a class that several of us took from a local quilter. I take it just to have a night free to piece some of my own projects and to visit with friends. Coleen did a great job on her quilt; this is only her second one.
Her border was so busy that I just did a big meander in red, after talking her out of cross-hatching (no point in paying for something that won't show). A "CC" in the red Seminole border finished off the outside. Each block had a different fill and the sashing had a new treatment for me. I love how it turned out (she says modestly), take a look.
A close-up of one of the blocks. Do you think the sashing looks like wishbones? I have no idea what the actual name of it is.
And a close-up of the back...I always love the back.
Notice the painting in my header?? This one is called "Big Butt" and is by Leslie Ann Webb. Click hereto read about Leslie and see more of her work.

Show me the Quilts!
Not really interested in the ponies and the rest of my life? Would you rather just look at quilts?? You have two options: 1) in the search box below, type in "customer quilts," or 2) scroll down to the "labels" and click on "Customer Quilts." Either way, the eye candy is all yours. Enjoy!!
Dorothy, Dort and more recently, Dory. Yes, three names. I was called Dort when I was little (much better than Dot) and now its morphed into Dory. That's the problem with a name like "Dorothy." What do you do with it?? (For the rest of this thrilling saga, click on "About Me" at the top of the blog.)
I'd love to hear from you! crazyhorsequilting [@] gmail [.]com

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." Ralph Waldo Emerson
