Scott’s Track Quilt

August 26th, 2009

When I look at pictures of this quilt or the quilt itself I cannot believe how I made it.  The quilt is sixty inches wide and eighty inches long and made of one piece of fleece on the front and one on the back.  The figures and letters are from cotton broadcloth.  I did a […]

Impressionist Wall Hanging

August 24th, 2009

I have always liked impressionist paintings and when I saw the book Impressionist Quilts by Gai Perry I was hooked.  I already had many different floral fabrics but I started buying more anytime I saw a piece that was exceptionally pretty.  I finally got up enough nerve to make a wall hanging and really had […]

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 […]
