Plugging right along!  Here are the quilts I made in 2008.

041:

This is the baby quilt I made for my first nephew.  I love the soft colors and variety of prints and solids.

042:

Another Iowa Hawkeye quilt (the first one was in my last post)!  This one was for my friends' baby boy.  Sidenote: I had the pleasure of repairing this quilt years later, which is the best compliment you could give me, in my opinion.  I love when a quilt is used and loved!

043:

This was an original design for a baby quilt gifted to a friend.  I think this was just a matter of finding an interesting block from my Electric Quilt software, adding a sashing and border and using up great fabrics I had from another project.

044:

This quilt was a commission for a customer I didn't know but who was referred to me by a quilt shop.  The woman had the center of this wallhanging - an old pillow - cross-stitched by a family member and pretty old.  She wanted to bring new life to it.  I was happy to help do that!

045:

I made this baby quilt as a commission, too.  I repeated last year's original design with new colors and fabrics and for a finishing touch, embroidered the new baby's name into the top border.

046:

Here's a mini-quilt that I made for a friend who commissioned it.

047:

I designed this quilt for a special commission to be given as a wedding gift.  I really loved collaborating on the fabrics and ideas online.  I really do love all the stages of quilting from the design and fabric selection to the final binding!

048:

Do you see how one quilt can inspire the design of the next? This baby quilt I designed and made for a lifelong friend's baby.

049:

I made this quilt with a lot of scraps from other projects and gifted it to neighbors for the birth of their new baby.  One letter of personalization goes a loooong way with a simple quilt. :)

050:

Another commission with the same pattern as seen previously.  I wouldn't mind patterning this one someday. 

051:

I made this quilt out of scraps from the last quilt I posted.  I'd over-made SEVERAL half-square triangle units from that previous quilt.  Then a deadly tornado came through an Iowan town and destroyed lives and property.  Because of a mutual friend, I'd learned of a young family who had just brought their new baby home from the hospital when the tornado hit.  I decided to make this quilt for that baby.

052:

Pretty bold and modern here!  I designed and made this quilt for a wedding gift for friends.

053:

This was QUITE a commission, let me tell you! I designed and made this quilt for the children of a couple who would be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. If I remember correctly, I mapped out 50 stars and incorporated as many photos as I could, transferred onto photo fabric, of course.  I really wanted this quilt to be great for them!

054:

This was another commissioned quilt that I made at the request of a customer for his wife.  He already knew exactly what pattern he wanted, so the rest was easy!  I think this was a quilt-as-you-go method and the applique was secured/quilted through the layers.

055:

In the fall of 2008, my friends had way too many babies!  This was one quilt I designed and made for one of those friends and her new baby boy.

056:

Quilt for twin boys #1. :)

057:

Quilt for twin boys #2!

058:

Quilt for twin girls #1.

059:

Quilt for twin girls #2.

060:

This table topper commission was super fun to make, I loved using that negative space to do a few fancy quilting motifs.  Log cabin layouts are so versatile!

061:

I self-published a pattern using this wall hanging designed.  It's called Four Winds and I offered different layouts but this one was my favorite layout.
