Productive week so far – 3 Quilts completed

Great weather for working inside this last week. Cold outside so working on quilts is great fun. This week I was able to complete 3 quilts.

  • 30 Block Standard in Lt. Blue & White
  • 20 Block Standard in Dk. Green & Var. Black
  • 20 Block SnowBall in Var. Gold, Var. Grey & Black

Julie B has already picked up her quilt for her sister. Julie could not believe how big it turned out. The quilt for Maria’s son Joe, is getting snipped and rolled, ready for pick up next week. And the SnowBall is for my lovely daughter. But I will store it here until she needs it. It will make a great sample.

What are you doing to keep warm on these Winter days?

I Love to Repeat Myself

On Thursday, a great friend and repeat customer, Maria came by with her son. Maria, is a friend from my former life, you know the one, before loving my job making beautiful memories. For the last few years Maria stops by to give me the pleasure of making quilts for her graduating Girl Scouts and family members. So, it is a new year and a new visit from Maria. She helps start the year off right with 2 quilts for her sons. We got to work and laid out shirts for her son that came with her. He did all the moving and placed each shirt in just the right position.  He picked some great colors to compliment his shirt layout: Variegated Green and Variegated Black. Maria brought more shirts for her other son, too. This son sent directions for the colors he would like to use in his quilt. We could not lay out the shirts as he has more to send to his mom.

I was able to spend the rest of Thursday cutting all the’ shirts in preparation for sewing.

A World Traveling Quilt

On Monday I was excited to see my new customer Julie B. She came by to order a quilt for her sister. She took out 29 shirts from around the world. You see, Julie’s sister is a world traveler and for many years enjoyed meeting new and interesting people all around this great big planet.  It took some time to layout  the shirts in just the right order.  We still needed one more block to complete the look. Julie is going to drop off a photo to complete the look. You will be amazed when you see all the places she has seen. Until then…

New SnowBall quilt for Kelsey

Started on Sunday a new SnowBall quilt design. I was able to finish the top in the afternoon.  It looks really great. It is a 20 Block in Var. Yellow, Var. Grey and Black.

I hope to get it quilted before my meeting on Monday with Julie B. Can’t wait to start on her quilt.

Memories of 2012

As I look back on 2012, I have such wonderful memories of the people I have met and quilts I have been honored to make. Each one has it’s own story wrapped up in time. Thank you for allowing me to patch together a beautiful memory for you in 2012. I hope I will get the honor to serve you again this New Year.
