For Christmas 2006 and Valentine's Day 2007 everybody got quilts. Patchwork placemats, a chess set, a board game copied from Brian's childhood Snakes and Ladders, a bright Valentines gift to Paul and Malinda, still newlywed, and an even brighter large quilt for Joe and Vera, because they were moving to Alaska. The color scheme was what I remembered from my stay in Greenland with the rocks and ice and water and the orange polar poppies. But the quilting on the two larger quilts is the most awful I ever did. Much to learn, I should have sent them to a quilter with a longarm.

|Chess pieces of felt put onto wine corks; I believe they fell over.|
|My first attempt to use my computer's printer to print on cloth.|
|The English game board from the WWII years copied onto a quilt.|
|A long armed quilting machine.|
Same price as a small car.

|Quilting not very extensive, didn't know better.|

|Again very little quilting and done on my own machine.|
