Oooh, gorgeous! Will have to look them over several long, leisurely times to decide which ones I like best, but the Farmer’s Wife and the 2-Day Quickie are fast favorites, of the ones you hadn’t posted before. Have to show these to my mother the quilter.

Beautiful work.

Seconded. I can’t decide which one(s) I like best. Wow, just wow!

Your wife is very talented. I’m in awe of how beautiful her quilts are. Mine are amateurish next to those.

At least you have made some! I, on the other hand, have merely managed to horde scraps of fabric and old garments——-all of them brimming with possibility! Heh….

As far as Mrs Cranky’s quilts go, I think my favorite is that last one she made for her daughter. Her subtle use of color is impressive and quite beautiful! If these do not inspire me, nothing will.

Thanks all for the kind comments. I’ll be passing them along to Mrs Cranky. She tends to dismiss compliments and is very humble about her abilities.

Although it’s not obvious from the picture, the quilt made for my daughter is a queen size quilt. It looks smaller hanging on the wall with nothing around to give the size context.

Thanks again all!

Impressive. Most impressive work. They are really works of art, and you could probably fetch a nice sum if you ever put any of them up for sale.

Echo all the other comments (make her get ‘em documented for insurance & posterity!)

My little old quilter mother really likes the use of color, and admires as well as the overall designs. Looks like Mrs. C. likes to play with ‘sampler’ techniques — different patterns in different blocks tied together by the colors and the overall design. The results are impressive!

I would looooove to have the 2-day quickie — those are so my colors. Would pay good money for something like that if I had money. Still also love your daughter’s quilt and the one on the bedroom wall for sheer cool design. The farmer’s wife is marvelous for the ultimate challenge in sampler design! Which is not to say I don’t like the others too, but those four are my favorites.

Sighs in awe and admiration.

Just got pictures of one of my favorites.
