Many years ago, when Seminole style cutting and piecing came into the quilt world (speed technique) since I had only scraps, I thought it would be cool to make a quilt that cannot be sewn together in strips and then cut across to get the squares.  By the time I got around to making one (this is the third I made) I was out of scraps and buying brand new material!  Oh, well.

Another woven-look - think about a potholder!

Milky Way, a Beth Gutcheon block

This is my (original, I think - I have never seen another like it, and I made this in the 80's) combination of Monkey Wrench (or Indiana Puzzle) and Pinwheel.

I don't know the name of this block.  My sister made the blocks when she was in high school, I set them with green and red fabrics decades later, then it was destroyed by fire.  That quilt just did not want to be!

This is really a coverlet - after I took this picture I redid the binding so it would hang straight - honest!

Baby blocks (with a special border of larger blocks of my own devising - I only wish I had not worried about up-and-down!  I would like it better with the large blocks all around.)

Woven-style quilt - oops, this is the same as the earlier one.  I made another with a green border but don't have a picture of it yet.

Chinese Puzzle blocks with Japanese Fans in corner.  I set the turquoise squares in the fans to relate to the ones in the Puzzle blocks.

Back of the Chinese Puzzle quilt.  This was made with cotton batting, so there is quilting an inch (sometimes less) apart.

I liked the Jacob's Ladder block, but I thought I would simplify it.  Later I came across it - it was named Contrary Housewife!  Too true!

Another Chinese Puzzle made by Amy Richards and me.
