My National Quilting Day Quilt To Myself!

I make so many custom orders and for sale projects that I get lonesome to make one for myself. Last week I vowed to make one for me on National Quilting Day and this is what I came up with! I used a charm pack from RJR fabrics called Sumptuous Living by Robyn Pandolph. I have had this pack for a few years. Yes I mean years so here it is, Pretty right? I quilted it in a pink cotton thread. I used my Accuquilt Go for the butterflies and then I embellished them with some little vintage buttons I had. The butterflies add to the charm of the fabrics. I call it "Butterflies In My Garden"

No power to sew with! How awful and tomorrow is National Quilting Day

I am a very lucky gal!! My outside electric breaker went out and I started blowing fuses. I called the manager of our mobile home park and they had to replace it. Now what is a busy gal going to do when you just can't sew and it is National Quilting Month and National Quilting Day tomorrow. Sooooooooo I went outside and started in my yard. Now of course it really is so beautiful. LOL I planted these flowers(bottom picture) my sister gave me for my birthday. The top picture is a pot of cactus from my daughter. Can you see the star cut in the cactus leaf? I love things like that. Yippee the A/C is on so will get busy and sew, quilt, sew, quilt!!!

We Women Can Do It!

Just wanted to post this little quilt in honor of St. Patrick's Day. I have not had a place to hang small quilts so today I put up a little rod for them. These are my tools and I can almost do anything with them. My saw is in the shed out side. I didn't need it today. Ladies if you have a man in your family that complains that he has no tools or is not handy with tools just call on me and I'll come-a-runnin and we will get the job done. Now the pliers are new, the hammer was my fathers and the screw drivers are what my husband allowed me to use of his. Great aren't they? LOL I get the jobs done anyway. When we women decide we are going to get something done WE DO!!

Cute Girly Quilt Goes to California




I love what the pink does to this t-shirt quilt. My customer wanted pink and green sashings so that is what she got. These are so much fun to make and put together for people. I did not use corner blocks on this one because the t-shirts were different sizes. By using 16 shirts, actually more than that as I combined a couple of the shirts, it made the quilt square. She wanted a throw size and I think it turned out very pretty. Posted by Picasa

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.
