I made this quilt in a beginner's quilt class. As
part of my personal collection. It is also the beginning of creating
Size: 74" x 74"
Several quilt pieces were found in a sack as part
of Grandpa & Grandma Zorn's household belongings. The blocks were
finished and put together in a quilt by Kathryn Henry. Pearl Ropp, my
quilting friend, finished the family heirloom.

The quilt was found with Grandpa & Grandma
Zorn's household belongings. They passed away in August 1980 and were
my Mom's parents. (Margaret Zorn Tone.)
Hand quilted and a family heirloom.
Size: 80 1/2"
This was the first big quilt I made. I learned so
much about color, 1/4" seams, borders, & rotary cutting
techniques. Hand quilted and completed by Pearl Ropp.
"Bridal Bouquet Baskets"
Size: 71 1/2"
I began this quilt in 1996. Michelle & Joey
were planning their wedding. It was hand quilted and completed by
Pearl Ropp, Kalona, Iowa, who has become my quilting friend.
"Traditional Log Cabin"
One of my favorite quilt blocks is the "Log
Cagin". It can be sewn in various colors and the layout, in
creating a pattern, is almost endless. This was my first project that
included the paper piecing technique. The warm greens in this quilt
remind me of the 2 big pine trees found in the large front yard of
our family farm.
"Denver Log Cabin"
I call this my "dream quilt". When I was
sewing this quilt top, I would dream and set goals for myself. I
bring this quilt out when I feel my dreams are falling apart. It
helps me to refocus.
x 79 1/4"
This quilt has helped
me get acquainted on the Internet. A Churn Dash block exchange over
the Internet created this quilt. Blocks were sewn, signed, &
dated from quilters over the world.
Using various designer fabrics reminds us of
America and Brooklyn's "COMMUNITY
OF FLAGS" display. Michelle was selected to reign as
first Flag queen. Her grandparents, Flem & Bernice Orr, were long
time residents of the community.
Thank you for viewing my quilts. I have enjoyed sharing them with you.
