These are in no particular order. But you will agree with me that they are each beautiful.
This is from Alice W. of Maryland who took my Modern Vortex class (center block). She added all those extra blocks to turn this into a Quilt of Valor. Very, very clever. Lucky recipient!

This is Daria B.' Modern Vortex quilt from a class I taught in Delaware a few months ago. This pattern still has a lot of interest and I still offer it as a class.

And Dawn P. decided that one Modern Vortex wasn't enough. She made 9 of them for this gorgeous quilt center. Dawn took a class from me through the Sewing Expo (though I can't remember which city!) Way to go, Dawn!

Here is the Dear John quilt made by John of Maryland. He used 96 blocks from my Quilter's Block a Day calendar. He used the Dear Jane quilt as his inspiration and many of the outside border blocks are his own design. I am still blown away by his creativity.

Fern Fancy from my book, Paper Piecing Perfect Points. This is not my pattern but appears in my book from Kathryn Wagar Wright of Quilter's Newsletter Magazine. Can you believe all that piecing? Such a gorgeous quilt.
Cupid's Arrows was a class I taught about 15 times and is based on my quilt in the same book. I took only 3 blocks and created a runner (or wall banner) pattern for students. This is from Dawn P. also. I think her setting triangle fabric is fabulous!

This is from Amy O. of North Carolina. I think she also sent me a pic of the finished quilt, but I can't find it in my email. When I do, I will post it here. This BOM was so VERY popular and I've seen quite a few finished quilt tops.

I have uploaded it today so you can enjoy making this, too. It is perfect for Jelly Roll strips of 2-1/2". The pattern makes an 11" (approximate) size block and is 59" x 70" with the piano key borders (not shown here)
