I adore Jack Russels so it's no surprise this was so much fun to make. Like my other pet portraits, it is made using a fusible applique technique with seven different values of grey and then it's stitched and quilted onto a quilted background. The internal frame is an Australian aboriginal print that seems to suit the playfulness of the jack russell. 
This started a photo I took of a flower spring 2014.  I had it printed onto fabric, then did thread art and quilting, then embroidered some song lyrics on.  This is a gift for a friend who lost her daughter.  
This is a crumb quilt...I used the Disappearing 9-patch design to set the blocks together.  The other fabrics were the constant in the quilt.  Another quilt quilted on my Juki 98Q.
This quilt was made primarily from Civil War Repros....at my husband's request.  I quilted it on my Juki 98Q.
This quilt was made for the competition "Calendar". What month to sew determined by lot. I got a month December. And here is my result.  Quilt-winners can be seen here http://lenacab.livejournal.com/292119.html
This quilt contains blocks started during two master classes with Ted Storm:
Hand Applique, 2010 and Trapunto and Whitework, 2012.
I finished these blocks in 2012, put them together and finally quilted in 2013.
These classes were a great challenge and I've learned so much.
I love the colours in this quilt - looking at it makes me happy. It was quilted for me by TQS member Toni Martin (tannes) 
Christmas stocking I designed and entered into Nancy Zieman's Stocking Challenge.  Thread work was done on the fabric for the flowers and leaves.  Very hard to see in this picture.  The letters for Noel are Lame. 
I am a snowman collector and when I saw this pattern I knew I had to make it!
This quilt is the result of a border's class given by Linda O'Sullivan at The Bernina Connection in Tallahassee.   I loved every border in her sample quilt - from the paper pieced birds to the little doors on the bottom row that reminded me of little Santa's elf doors.
"Fiesta 2" is a version of Fiesta 1, except I traded out the silks for cottons and a burlap backing.
Alphabeth Quilt
I made this table topper for my sister for Christmas. It was a kit that I got from Keepsake Quilting.
I just finished this as a Christmas present for my niece. It was a kit that I got from Keepsake Quilting. I really like the simplicity of the pattern.
This small wall quilt is based on a fragment of a photo I took out of my office window. The quilt is entirely machine pieced using methods of Ruth McDowell and Ruth Powers, and was designed and partially completed in a workshop at Empty Spools at Asilomar, CA in 2014. http://susieturn.blogspot.com/2014/11/asilomar-robins-final-chapter.html
I was commissioned to make a log cabin quilt.  I was handed a pattern from a book but the size wasn't large enough.  I used the basic layout but increased the finished block size from 7 to 8 inches. I used my accuquilt go to cut my blocks and my new Bernina London 7 Bernette machine to sew it.  Once finished I put it on my frame and quilted it with my Tin Lizzie 18DLS machine.  I don't have robotics so everything was freehand or ruler work. I used a circle ruler for the feather wreath spines and chalked in registration lines and quitled the feathers freehand.  I used my ruler to do line work but the borders were all freehand.  I enjoyed making the quilt and learned alot.  I used Glide thread in the top and bobbin.  In the future I will use thread that matches the back for the back and different color on the front.  I've only been quilting/sewing for 2 years now and using the longarm for 1 year.
