Charity Quilt Idea

Posted on May 28, 2014 at 12:41pm 0 Comments

Hello Ladies!  It's been weeks again since I've visited.  But...I have a new idea that maybe will appeal to some who are always trying to get those charity quilts into the schedule. 

When I take a class to learn a new block I have a tendency to become bored repeating and repeating for 12 or 15 blocks.  The end result will be beautiful I'm sure, but I simply can't do it.  So...I take the newly practiced and learned technique and make one, three, four or five.  Then I can use those…


Heirloom Baby Quilt

Well I have finally gotten all the embroidery finished and now to move on to the finishing touches to make this quilt a treasure for my sweet, brand new granddaughter.  Crisp cotton and satin trim is the vision.  I'll let you all know when finished.  I'm inspired to use a bit of my grandmothers lace as well, but not sure it will hold up over time.  It is already 50 years old.  Any ideas, ladies?  I think cotton lace is something to be treasured, but not used on a project that will go many…


Painted fabric squares

The fabric squares are the best way to make a quilt truly unique.  There are so many fabrics to choose from, but I still can't resist painting my own.  I used to paint on everything that wasn't moving, but I've settled on fabric now since I can make a quilt truly a one of a kind in more ways than one. 

Hope you all enjoy!  I'm off to the studio.  It's a snow day and I'm revved up on java, so have a great day everyone!

The painted fabric squares were painted by nursing home residents.  They wanted to participate in a project to help other women, so I came up with this idea.  I had plenty of fabric donated by a decorator (her discarded sample books) and we combined the painted squares with the assortment of textures and patterns to make these simple and beautiful quilts for the local battered women's shelter.  I have a long arm so after tying 2 with the yard method, I decided it was quicker and soooo much…

Hi Carol, and welcome from a fellow Christian, grandma, mother, quilter, etc.  I love your painting of the pots.  Spring is my time of year new birth, promise of warm weather etc.  But I do love the fall colors and since it starts getting colder it means that I will spend more time indooors which means quilting time.
