Mignon Loved The Quilt

August 8th, 2009

You can tell by the smile on her face that Mignon really liked the quilt.  It gave me a great deal of joy to see how much she appreciated the quilt.  That is what quilt making is all about, at least for me, making something beautiful and then giving it to someone who will enjoy […]

Buster’s Quilt

June 25th, 2009

Yesterday afternoon when I arrived at Ashley’s with the quilt she opened the door before I even reached it and was reaching for the bag with the quilt almost before I could get inside.  She said she could not wait to see it and when she pulled the quilt from the bag her mega watt […]

Bryce’s Christmas Quilt

November 19th, 2008

Last year when Bryce was three he finally got his “baby” quilt.  Since he was so happy to get that quilt I decided that I would make a Christmas quilt for him.  The fabric was printed for a cloth book but I cut the pages apart and made them into a quilt for I am […]

Quilts Are In The Mail

May 6th, 2008

Last night I said it would probably be four in the morning before I got to bed, well I missed by half an hour for it was four thirty before I finally fell into bed exhausted. The sad thing is that even though I was sleepy and tired, I was still awake at six thirty. […]

I Am Surrounded By Pink Pigs

May 1st, 2008

This afternoon as I was pinning the binding on one of the quilts what did I see on the fabric but a pink pig.  I have been looking at that fabric for about three weeks and never saw the pig before.  I did think there was a pig but then I saw the horn and […]

Only One Quilt Finished

April 29th, 2008

One would think that I would stop planning to do a certain number of quilts in a day.  I only finished one today but I have three more ready to quilt and the binding cut and pressed so I guess the day was not a total loss. It appears that most of the quilts that […]

Five Quilts Finished Today

April 28th, 2008

Last night as I was getting ready for bed I realized that I had not posted to my blog for two days but no problem since I really had nothing to say. Do not have anything to say tonight except that I completed five quilts and that brings my total to eleven. Since I am […]

Two More Quilts Finished

April 24th, 2008

Tuesday when I got up I had a slight cough and then by yesterday I had a deep, throaty cough. I had decided that it was the lint from the batting and material that was causing my cough so last night before church I drove down to Walmart and bought a package of dust masks. […]

Three Quilts Finished Today

April 22nd, 2008

Sometimes I wonder about my sanity. I was happily sewing along quilting on the third quilt for the day when the machine stopped sewing. It would only sew one stitch at a time. I was about three inches from the edge so I sewed along one stitch at a time. I was really feeling down […]

The Best Laid Plans

April 12th, 2008

I had hoped to get two quilts completed today but did not quite make it. I did get three cut and ready to sew, one completed, and the top of another quilted. So guess that was not too bad considering I did not get started until about three in the afternoon. I tried a new […]
