Here are my renditions of the themes.

Be My Valentine, Hardware

Twelve 12 x 12's done!

Material Maven member Nedra & I co-chaired a twelve month, 12 x 12 challenge for our small ( 50 member ) guild which ended last week with a display of the quilts. Unfortunately, we didn't inspire many to participate, but those who did, really enjoyed the process. Above are the photos of my quilts.

Here's are the themes for the 12 quilts:

[Incidentally, the first photo should have been the last one!]

Third photo:

bottom left: Travel ( Only In My Dreams...would the Eiffel Tower be painted purple ).
bottom rt.: Prescription ( for getting though tax preparation ) This one technically is not a 12 x 12 as the M & M
bag sticks out another 3" or so.
