My attempt at making a Split Decision!

By |June 28th, 2012|Collection Quilts-blog, How To Quilt, Traditional Quilts|

Talk about fun!  Making this quilt was a riot – I really loved it.  First of all, I made it for a client (who was giving it as a gift to her niece) who has the same tastes in material and colors that I do – so although the materials weren’t picked by me, I loved working with them.  The materials came from clothes and fabrics that she either had, or her […]

Rainbow Array Quilt

I think I’ve flunked as a blogger.  I started out gung-ho, blogging almost every day.  Then, with my mind geared to quilting, the blogging slipped to weekly, and lately not even to monthly.  At the end of the day, after I’ve finished what I need to do as far as the quilting is concerned, my energies for […]

Cat Bereavement Quilt

By |January 21st, 2012|Memorial or Bereavement Quilts, Miscellaneous Quilting, Unusual Quilts|

My good friend’s cat Felix died suddenly in his sleep and she has been having a hard time grieving for him. I’ve made many quilts for her and I knew she loved bright colors, so I made her what I call a “poster quilt” with the brightest fabric I could find and with two pictures of Felix printed on fabric. They show this sweet, laid back little fellow relaxing on the polka-dot duvet which I made for his owner several years ago. […]

From Shirts to Bereavement Quilt

By |January 15th, 2012|Memorial or Bereavement Quilts, Tie Quilts, Traditional Quilts|

A customer sent me a box full of fine cotton shirts custom made for her father in Hong Kong. Most were striped shirts in various muted colors, with white collars, but a large amount were plain white. These shirts were made of exceptionally fine cotton and felt almost silky to the touch. I used some of the shirts in the little baby quilt featured in yesterday’s blog, but the […]
