I am an applique quilter more than anything. I design patterns. Here are a couple, but the link in my signature line actually goes to by website, morelcabincreations.
I love the appliqué ones you did here! Especially the girl with the chickens!

LUV your quilts....especially the wedding quilt!
Are you also doing the quilting? Machine or hand?
The quilting is quite lovely ~ you do beautiful work.

I was a "Die Hard" Hand quilter for a Years.
Once arthritis set in, I decided to learn basic machine quilting.

I design my own quilts as well.
I taught quilting @ workshops & the Needlework festival in Toronto
But now I quilt just for Fun, for family & friends.

When you said the "Girl with the chickens", that is a Full size self portrait quilt.
I had hubby trace my body on the fabric & I took it from there.
The shorts & shirt are my actual clothes.( ummm with 3D boobs - LOL)
My face was done by looking in the mirror ( didn't have a PC )
The chicken blocks were donated & signed by my friends in various quilt guilds.

I am working on another Chicken Quilt, but should post some of my other finished chicken quilts.
It's the only place where folks will Not "roll their eyes" @ more chickens!

This is my interpretation of "Leni Weiner's" TREASURE quilt on the cover of her book.
I thought it needed a Chicken to be complete.

You do amazing work Poultry Princess!! I started opposite of you...started doing art quilts but then was convinced to sell my patterns...found out that most quilters are not art quilters so I had to simplify it big time! I just LOVE what you are doing!! One day I am going to get back to it, you inspire me to! lol! Your work is incredible and looks so FUN!! I love the creative part but honestly hate writing the patterns...bt I am hoping to grow it enough that my husband can retire when he is 80 hahahaha!

Started this one for my little biker brother...because tough guys need Jesus too :P
It is eventually going to have the words "Harley Davidson" down one side...and not sure what else. This one is a lot of fun to design!

LUV the new quilt you are working on tcamp!!!
I am sure he will LUV it!
The design is really nice, SEW much FUN!
Do you do your quilting or send it out?
I'm still old school & do all my own.
The quilts I've seen that are professionally done look Amazing.

I will post my latest when I get a chance.
Hurt my back so Everything is on hold.
