My Quiet Place

This is a little place in my living room that I really love!! I enjoy rocking in the rocker and reminiscing. After all when you get my age you have more past than future.  This quilt is one of many that I have made just for this space. The quilt rack is a gift from my husband many years ago. I have two places in my house where I hang quilts and I change them out periodically. Seasonal quilts are my favorites and I love to create them. This is one of my favorites and was really fun to make. It was suppose to be 12 blocks but I only made 9 so it would fit the space. I believe the fabrics are Thimbleberries. Actually I made the vest on the wall. That brought me a quilt show ribbon. I made the silky throw on the rocker and the pillow, so much fun!!

oh wow! what a beautiful space... I saw it listed with the photo in my Google Reader and before opening up to the post, I thought this was a photo taken at the recent Quilt Festival in Houston of one of the booths... but this is YOUR LIVING ROOM! ;) LUCKY YOU! :)

thanks for sharing - I hope you will again when you change out the quilt.

Love from Texas! ~bonnie

Love your quilt. It is so warm and cozy looking. And your little spot is very inviting. What a wonderful place to sit and reminise.

I have come to realise, there's no "supposed to be" or right or wrong in quilting, just new ways of doing things!

When my sisters and I were very young all three of us loved to make things. I think that was the way kids entertained themselves in those days. Our mother sat us down with old clothes and needles and thread and we made our dolls clothes.
My creativity grew from there and I found myself in high school making all of my own clothes. I did get a lot of attention with my matching outfits including hats. Since I was shy maybe that was my way of creating my own world and at the same time getting attention.
I finally did get tired of making clothes and went into quilting. The first year I quilted I made every family member quilts, quilts and more quilts.
You can only make so many quilts and so many bags before you have no space left. What is a very nutty creative person going to do about this?? Well you are going to open an ETSY shop and sell some of this stuff, right?? http://fabricartist21.etsy.com/
My neighbor asked me to make her a T-Shirt Quilt and I have been doing that for over a year now. I take special orders through my Etsy shop. I have become very busy with this business and will continue to create t-shirt quilts as long as their are customers that want them.
