Quilt 022 – Baby Neva

My sister found out she was having a little girl so I started looking for inspiration. So much of quilting for me is having inspirations. Without it, I find it is so hard to get through it, or even finish it. It becomes a chore instead of a hobby I enjoy. My sister  doesn’t like… Continue reading Quilt 022 – Baby Neva

Quilt 019 – Patriotic Swoon Quilt

Long time, no blog post! It has been a crazy busy past two years, filled with some of the best times, and unfortunately also some of the hardest times. My quilting fell to the back burner, but I still made small progress here and there. My next posts are going to jump around on the… Continue reading Quilt 019 – Patriotic Swoon Quilt

Apple Core Quilt – maker unknown This quilt is a true treasure. While we don’t know who actually made it, we know it was someone in Brenda’s family. This quilt is depression era quilting at its finest. They cut every piece of clothing they had to make this quilt.  Many of the pieces have seams… Continue reading Vintage Quilt Series – Part 7

Vintage Quilt Series – Part 5

Since I had such a long delay in posts, I am treating you to a second post this week! I am excited about this quilt.

I have revamped my label… again! Do you label your quilts or other various projects? If so, how?

Vintage Quilt Series – Part 3

We have another special quilt by Granny Hallum. This quilt was hand pieced, and machine quilted. It is a beautiful hexagon quilt. I love that she chose white as the divider color. It really makes all the rich colors stand out. This is a large quilt for such tiny hexagons. I can only imagine how… Continue reading Vintage Quilt Series – Part 3

Quilt 000 – The Beginning

As I was digging around looking for something, I came across my actual first quilt, actually there were two. I made them when I was about 9 or 10. I realize Quilt 001 says that it is my first quilt, but that is only partially true. It was my first quilt to make in 20… Continue reading Quilt 000 – The Beginning

Quilt 012 – Dalton

After working on Quilt 011, I needed a quilt that was a little easier to piece together. I really loved the herringbone design I did on Quilt 002. It is so flexible for boys or girls. My nephew LOVES orange. This is one quilt that didn’t need a pop of orange because it IS orange!… Continue reading Quilt 012 – Dalton

Quilt 011 – Aubrey

It has been a while since I have posted! Mostly just because I couldn’t really post the next two quilts since they are Christmas presents for my niece and nephew. It took a long time to find a design I really liked for Aubrey’s quilt. I knew she wanted pink. She loves pink. I found… Continue reading Quilt 011 – Aubrey

Quilt 009 & 010 – Raylan

My sister is having her first baby so it gave me another reason to quilt some more! I found this inspiration quilt on Pinterest. I immediately went to fabric.com and started finding different plaids. It took some time but I eventually decided I liked a blue/green color scheme with a pop of orange. I mean… Continue reading Quilt 009 & 010 – Raylan
