My sister-in-law Jo Ellen, just passed these two lovely quilts to my husband and I.
I especially love the red, orange & green one!
It is a good thing my husband looks at my blog since I have not shown these two quilts to him yet. Both quilts were made by his grandmother Ferguson and quilted by his two aunts Simmie & Jessie. I plan to add labels to each of these quilts and hopefully show the first one in a quilt show.
Hawaiian Sunset is my number two favorite quilt! The sewing was fun and I worked steady until the quilt top was done. I did not set it aside to work on another project as I so often do. I had it machine quilted a year ago, so why haven't I put the binding on? Proof that the pleasure is all in the sewing and fabric selection. &:-D It is stacked in my closet. Too bad my picture isn't better.
Purchased kit on our way to Paducah 2010, at a wonderful quilt store in Kentucky called Whittles
I think it needs a pieced border-so back to the sewing room!
Paducah 2008!~ Appomattax Court House
My quilt buddy Karen fell in love with this quilt in the Bonnie Blue booth during our Paducah trip and naturally several of us did too. Notice it is the same block as the quilt above. Bonnie Blue no longer offered the kit with these fabrics, so we all had a good time looking for it! Who doesn't love Toile! Nice to have it done. Where do the years go?
Log Cabin-Rail Fence Blocks as seen on Bemused blog. Tazzie, Donna and I are trading blocks! This is what Donna has done so far on her design wall! Very exciting! Sure wish I knew how to make this jpg picture larger!
The ladies of the Quilt Batts and I have decided to hold a PHD event!
We each picked out three projects and agreed to finish them in six months with an optional fourth project you can complete or trade for one of the three. My list was VERY long but I narrowed it down to these four.
"Friendship Knot" from McCall's Quilting - magazine dated 1997! *started* with 1930s fabrics
"King of the Roost" by Betty Alderman Designs- four redwork chickens have been completed thanks to my Mom-Marilyn's help
"Shakertown Quilt" by Pepper Cory, took a class with Pepper Cory in 1999 along with two Quilt Batt friends and started the stencil blocks set with puss in the corner blocks. The quilt is from the book called "The Signature Quilt"
Log Cabin & Court House Steps lap quilt started at Whiffle Tree quilt camp in 1999 with Autumn fabrics
I still like all these projects and have been dreaming of finishing them for years!
