Back to the present.  I started this in early November 2014.  I used the quick curve ruler.  I love this tool.  I've decided to make more of these in the future.  I finished this last week.  And I free motioned all the quilting.  I used cotton batting with a second layer of wool.  I love the puffyness...

This is a Round Robin quilt that was made by my quilt group.  When I received it it, the corners where white so I chopped off the corners and added some pieced corners.  It is hand quilted by me.

Another quilt from the past....

This one was pieced on a trip to France with some of my gardening friends from Bainbridge Island, WA.  I had purchased most of the fabrics in London.  I designed the blocks myself.  The flower border was from a Quilters Newsletter Magazine.  It is hand quilted by me.

Now some quilts from the past... This quilt was fun to make.  I love circles and drunkards path.  These circles were hand pieced on a trip to Alaska.  I used all black and white mourning fabrics combined with batiks.  I quilted it on my mid arm and finished it in 2011.

Speaking of my mid arm.  Here is a photo of it.  This quilt is a Momma quilt for my cousin in Montana.  I pieced it and quilted it during our house bound snow week of February 2014.

This pillow was a gift exchange for our Christmas party at our quilt.  It was great fun to create.  I quilted it using my Legacy 2 mid arm quilting machine.  It was fun to sew on my old machine.  It hadn't gotten a lot of use since my long arm arrived last July.

My customer wanted a flowing pattern for this quilt.  She chose "Calm Waters".  I bound it on one side and hand sewed the binding.  She was really happy to get it back quickly so it could make it's journey to Japan for Christmas. 

This was my second charity quilt for Portland Modern Quilt Guild.  I love this yellow fabric.  I chose a connected circle pattern for the quilting.  The back was pieced as well.  I love how this turned out.

This is one of my first charity quilts that I quilted for Portland Modern Quilt Guild.  I decided to place quilt block motifs in the center of each block and then do the borders with a border pattern.  It was a fun process.

This quilt is a fun red and white antique top that I picked up at a garage sale last summer.  I wanted to try out my bubbles pattern.  I quilted it with a cotton/wool blend.  I love how it turned out.

This is my Steel Bridge Quilt that was displayed with other Portland Bridge Quilts fall of 2014.  It was definitely a quilt that was out of my comfort zone but I'm glad that I participated in the challenge.

My name is Elisa Corcoran.  My passion is quilting!  This blog is to document the quilts that I have completed and to talk about the process of creating the quilt.

I hope that you will enjoy this as much as I do.
