seem to take up Betty's time as much as Jon's hobbies. I
started quilting back in the late 70's, so have completed quite a few
quilts (although some are in various stages of completion).
I've been told that they did not turn out too bad.
|This block of the month, is named
"Country Garden". This was a fun quilt was machine pieced and
hand appliqu¨¦d; hand quilted.
Jul 2004 - I put this one somewhere in the move to Houston. Don't have any idea what I did with this one! (Sep 2004 - found it!)
|OK, everyone has made at least one quilt from the Yellow Brick Road pattern. This is one that I machine pieced and quilted on the long arm, done in flannels. This one went to Jon's dad in Otis Kansas for Christmas (2004).|
|"Spoiled Rotten Christmas"
- This sampler is a combination of pieced and appliqu¨¦. There is
quite a bit of embroidery, as well as beads and buttons embellishing this
quilt. Hand quilted with holly leaves and berries in the sashing and
Jun 2000-This one is now finished, just have not updated the
This quilt is somewhat scrappy, and was made for Rachael.
She laid out all of the blocks, and ironed as I sewed them together.
She then thought that I should be able to hand quilt it as quickly as we
got the top put together! (hand quilted).
|Beware the child that
comes home from college and sweetly says "Mom, I would sleep so much
better under one of your special quilts at school".
That means you only have about 3 months to get the entire quilt finished before she heads back to school! "Wyoming Whirligig" - from Kansas City Star in 1936 and again QuiltMaker May/June '98.
|The left hand picture is a 'new' quilt made
for Lindsey a few years ago. She wanted to use her
great-great-grandmothers well-worn quilt, (the one on the right), so I
promised to make one similar. We used some old feedsacks that her
great grandmother gave me in the center squares, the rest are reproduction
fabrics. "Trip Around the World".
Note: There are frogs quilted around the outside green border.
