I’m in Maine for a few days. It is cool here, but I keep warm by weeding the flower beds. The daffodils are in blossom. Usually I don’t come up here this early in the season and miss their beauty.
When my children were married, they received a wedding quilt. In the past, I used to take a picture of each quilt that I gave away and put it into one album. I’m so glad that I found the album and can share some of the pictures with you, When I make a quilt for a specific person, I have no problem giving it away. When I just make a quilt, I tend to keep it until the pile gets too large. Then I can easily give them away before the shelves collapse under the weight again.
One of my daughters received the unicorn wall hanging. It was fun to make. I like to applique, although at time, I hadn’t had lessons. I also thread painted the pine needles on this piece. I didn’t even know the term “thread painting”, but I found that I enjoyed doing it.
A son received the next quilt. It is made in my favorite colors and was a joy to piece.
Another son received this quilt. The pattern is called “Lover’s Lane”. I like the center on point square. This quilt was hand quilted.
There are many more wedding quilts in the album. They will show up on a later blog.
When I placed the pictures into the album, I wrote the name of the recipient on the back of the pictures. Frankly, I forgot that I made many of the pieces, especially the wall hangings, and who has them. It’s a good thing that my family likes my quilts.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
