1923 Stars - I made this quilt back in 2001. It it a combination of hand piecing and machine piecing on my vintage 1923 Singer handcrank sewing machine - that's how it got it's name. It was my first attempt at machine quilting which I did in the open spaces. I hand quilted all the stars. It's king sized and gets used constantly.
1930 Reproduction Quilt - This is a quilt that reminds me of the quilts my Grandmother made. I saw one similiar in a magazine, enough inspiration to get me started. The center is a 2 inch block made with multiple prints/colors of 1930 reproduction fabric on point. The border surrounding the center is white with pink/white triangles used to create the look of prairie points. The corners are created using the 1930 reproduction blocks. The outer border is pink and white scalloped stripe. I has appliqued flowers and leaves in the white border.
1930's Guild Challenge - 1930s Square blocks were won as a BOM drawing (made by various members). Won 1st Place and Best of Show at Challenge Quilt show. The layout and quilting motifs are my original designs. I have close-up photos of the quilting on my Profile Page.
1930's Medallion Scrap Quilt - Made from a collection of 30's reproduction fabrics collected at the 2003 Houston International Quilt Festival. These were "left overs" from Some Where in Time quilt and I still have a nice collection! Custom quilted on my longarm.
1930s repro Baby Quilt - This baby quilt uses a traditional block but I can't remember the name. It may have been a Kansas City Star pattern. The sashing was pieced from a lovely green that enhanced the pink and added to the quilt's design.
It's small size made it so easy to machine quilt on my vintage 1940s Singer 15-91. I love my antique Singer!
Size - 35 inches square.

1938 - I made this quilt from an old street photo taken in Wellington, New Zealand in August 1938. The quilt depicts my Father aged 4, holding hands with his Mother , together with his Aunt. I always loved the photo and enjoyed how it show that even as times change , family and what that means, stays the same. This quilt won 1st place in the art human image catagory at Road to California in 2014.
1st Anniversary - First Wedding Anniversary quilt for my beautiful daughter Jennifer and Son-In-Law. Being a newbie quilter back in 2006, I found instructions for the block on Block Central website. When putting the block together on my design board, I changed the direction of the block pieces. To me it looked more appealing. I have learned so much since 2006, I know I would have used more colors in the quilt; however, for my second quilt, I felt proud and giving it away was the best part. Quilt was presented to my daughter and son-in-law in Satellite Beach, FL while we were visiting my oldest Son. They loved the quilt and that is all that mattered to me. Beverley Linsley
1st Convergence quilt top - Created with 4 fat quarters (2 batiks and 2 commercial prints). Really pleased with most of it, but not a fan of the pink splotch. This is just the top, it hasn't been quilted yet.
