034 My First Commissioned Quilt


I was asked several months ago to make a Baby Quilt for a baby due January/February. No specific instructions, just that it was a Boy.

I'd seen a patchwork pillow made 
in the shape of a Scotty dog, 
my pattern is the same, just made into quilt blocks.
The backing fabric was in my stash 
for a reason right?
 My hand at pebble free motion quilting. It uses quite a bit more thread, but I like the look of it.

Still Here:

I'm finally posting about these random house blocks 
for Beth's Sandy Victim Quilts.
they were made & sent a few months ago...
I'm not quite as quick to blog though 
Beth amazes me...

Old Meets New ~ 2013


My Mom has been gone 18 years now and as I was cleaning out yet another bunch of 'gotta-keep-it' bins I discovered negatives. Amongst them I found a couple of quilt pictures. It's the perfect way to start this year's blogging, 
showing a couple of her creations. 
I wonder where I got the patching bug from.





She only patched from scraps, which is probably why I tend to prefer scrappy quilts; and I suppose it's also out of respect for who she was. I still have one unfinished patchwork top of hers that I will (eventually) complete with batting and backing - it will be a "combination quilt" - old meets new. 


Unlike the pictures I've included here - which as far as I can see are made from (yikes) fortrel, the quilt top I have is thankfully made of cotton or cotton blend fabrics.
