This is a sofa-sized quilt that I started years ago, I don't even remember how many years at this point. In fact, the child I was originally making it for will be going off to college this fall. However, his younger brother is happy to have it.
It is made from pre-printed pokemon panels with red sashing and blue borders added. The quilting is diagonal lines from corner to corner in the upper and lower squares that extend into the border and chevrons in the middle blocks that also extend out into the border. The backing fabric is white with pokemon all over.

I finally made some pictures of the bag I made almost two weeks ago. You know, it is hard to sell things online if you don't find the time to take pictures of them. LOL!
Oh well, I'm about to go post it for sale at my etsy store. If you are interested, come on by and check it out.

I made this pillow for my son's girlfriend as part of her graduation present from the family. The pillow is 14 inches square and is made from a 12 inch "54-40 or fight" block surrounded by a one inch border. The back of the pillow and the binding are the same purple fabric as the squares in the block. It has an envelop opening in the back to insert the pillow-form. Purple and green are her favorite colors and the walls in her room are off white. Plus she loves pillows!
I finally decided to try to sell some of the things I make instead of always just giving them away. I opened a shop at etsy.com. Here is a link to the shop if you are interested. I've only got one item listed right now, my cathedral windows wallhanging featured here. But I plan to add more things as I finish them. Hopefully I will have some purses for sale soon. Wish me luck!
