In November, 2006 I designed a quilt for my mother.  I call it “The Stingray Quilt”.  She went on a tropical cruise years ago and had a photo taken while she was petting a stingray.  She lives in Florida and has always loved the ocean and the color turquoise so I decided I needed to design a quilt with these elements in mind. 

Here is a photo of my Sting Ray Quilt design I created on EQ5 (quilt design software). 

Please take a moment to view  to see some of my Photo Gallery of the Sting Ray quilt as it progresses and other project that I am working on.

Stingray Quilt design by Audra Kearney November 2006

     This is a Queen sized quilt.  I hand pieced the 35 blocks  (each 12″ X 12″) and then connected all the blocks by machine.  After more than two years of hand sewing I decided I needed to learn to sew by machine…otherwise I wouldn’t finish this quilt until I was 60 years old (I’m in my early thirties! ha!)! 
The quilt top is currently done and I am almost ready to baste all three layers together.  I’m very excited to start the quilting process.  Free motion, here I come!!
Tomorrow I’ll post photos of a quilt I made for my sister’s cat. 
Yes…  a cat. 
Thanks for reading and Happy Quilting!!
