I'm known affectionately, I hope, as the
in one of my quilt groups.
I really don't mind.
I've always thought it's an
important step when you're finishing a quilt
and I know, the members my group,
have gotten much better about getting
that label on.
Another way to document is
to take photos of your work.
When you have a blog it's a natural step.
But if you don't blog,
get that camera out.
I've mentioned before that I
document my quilts in photo books.
It's simply for my own pleasure
and maybe my family's.
It's been a wonderful way to see my
journey in quiltmaking.
I continue to work backwards and
recently, I've been working on
Were you making quilts then?
As long as I had photos downloaded
I thought you might enjoy seeing a few of my favorites.
I've always loved this whimsical pattern
designed by Connie Huddleston of the
Starry Pines Pattern Co.
I used some hand dyed flannels for the letters instead of wool and
I finished this in 2001.
4 Block Applique
In 1998 I took a class from Terry Cloither Thompson
and started this 1850's antique reproduction quilt.
I finished it in 2001 and hand quilted it.
Single Wedding Ring
25th Anniversary quilt
Definitely a labor of love.💕
Okay, I had to include one more.
Paper pieced and hand quilted.
It's interesting to look back and
see how styles, techniques and color trends have changed
over the years.
if I hadn't had a label on these
quilts there won't have been any way
for me or anyone else to know
when they were made or by whom.
(end of lecture)
I have to admit I do a lot less
hand quilting than what I use to,
but maybe that's why these quilts
are some of my favorites.
Until Next Time-
