Great Manly Quilt

This is a great manly quilt from his girl friend, Amanda for Christmas! I had taken a Thanksgiving trip and had to make this quilt when I returned but it turned out very nice and was one of the easiest ones I have made recently. I love the hunter green and camel sashings and borders. Thank you Amanda for letting me make "YOUR MAN" his quilt!

Memorial Quilt For His Widow

This sweet quilt was a rather hard one to make. The  young widow gave me some of his favorite clothes to have me make her a "Special Keepsake Quilt" for her and her children to hold close to their heart  in loving memory of HIM!! She cried in my arms when I delivered it to her. and said she would probably tuck it away for a while. It is difficult to know that this is what you have left from someone you loved so much. God bless her and her three small children.

Big Man T-shirt Quilt

Well this is a really winner quilt for a really Champion Guy. No, I do not know him but I know he must be a great guy because his wife had this made for him for his Birthday which is this month. I am sure he will like it. He just has to be a real baseball fan and player too as his shirts are different team shirts. I hope he will think I did his shirts justice. There are over 30 shirts in this one.

One Big Cat One Little Bathroom

How would you like to step out of the bathroom and find this big cat on your little rug in the middle of your little floor? Winston chooses to sleep here most of the time. Now he is one big cat and he takes up most of the floor in my little bathroom. He does look comfy with not a care in the world, doesn't he?

Big Boys & Their Toys

This is my baby son the youngest of my three boys. He loves toys as you can see. Now he is a great family man and a dedicated Coast Guardsman and he just love those helicopters (big and small) !! He spends his time repairing and hoisting in the Coast Guard and in his spare time, which isn't much, he flies the little helicopters. He just can't get enough of them. I took this picture of him with his latest one in front of my house. This one was a bargain from a friend in Alaska. Of course he couln't pass up a bargain. LOL Cute!

Gorgeous Dahlia Quilt Top

Well this is such a lovely quilt top and it is begging to be quilted on your long arm machine. I made this top in 2003 for my husband. Well he went on to be with God before I could get someone to quilt it. I am letting it go now as I don't need it for my bed anymore. The workmanship is excellent if I say so myself. It is listed in my Etsy shop and you can see it there. Let me know if you want this and make me an offer so it won't suffer anymore with being wrapped up in my closet.

Wonderful T-Shirt Quilt

I just finished this wonderful T-shirt quilt for one of my customers. The blocks include him and his children. His wife had this made for his birthday which is this next week so I will be shipping it today. The little dress is from his daughter along with a Yankee baseball shirt and some really nice other shirts. I actually had a hard time cutting these up as they were so nice and the little dress was so sweet. I tried to keep as much of it intact as possible. I am sure he will like it and his wife is very excited.

Music To My Ears

I just created this instrument case for this customer last week. I had never made anything like this nor had I ever seen an instrument like this before either. I used prequilted paisley fabric in a rich maroon to match the history of the instrument. I believe he told me this one was made in Austria. This man plays at dances, concerts and anywhere he is able to. I also believe he flies out to visit his daughter and they both play and have a lot of fun. He calls it a "hurdy gurdy". It sounds very pretty and I can tell you he knows his music. Thanks, Theo for letting me make this case for you!!

Dress A Girl "Hope 4 Kids" International


Today I was in the book store with a friend reading a quilting magazine and there was an article in there just for me. Oh you know one of those times when you realize that you must get involved because what you were reading was meant for you! I have had 5 pillowcase dresses in my Etsy shop for months and NO SALES, for a reason I guess. I took them out of my shop and will be sending them to Phoenix, Arizona to the Dress A Girl "Hope 4 Kids International" organization. They have been doing these wonderful things since 1973 and have taught many of the women to make pillowcase dresses. I am feeling so good about this knowing that my little dresses will be loved by little girls that have NOTHING! Thank you Lord for giving me the opportunity to care and serve!


 Today is Monday April 11 and I sent these little dresses to the Hope 4 Kids International organization. I felt really grateful to be doing that for them! I am planning on making some shorts for Dress A Boy.

Wonderful Nephew!!


I have the most wonderful nephew that any Auntie could have. He lives in California and sent me this card with, as you can see, $40.00 cash in it for me. The story goes this way; My sister who lives here in Texas, block away from me, flew to Indiana to visit her daughter and other son. I cared for her cats and house while she was gone for 3 weeks. Several days into her visit in Indiana the front door opens and there stands her son from California. Surprise! Surprise! and they all had a wonderful loving reunion. My nephew sent me this money as a loving gesture since I was caring for her little cat family here in Texas. Don't you all wish you had such a loving nephew like I have?

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.
