Quilts

IMG_0317This is one of my favorite quilts.  I made it when I first started quilting.  It is machine pieced and hand quilted.  For some reason, it is very comfortable to sleep under.  For years, I took it to the Vermont Quilt Festival to place on my bed.  It is my home away from home quilt.

IMG_0312I collected the teal, blue and green fabrics in this quilt for several years.  There was something missing.  At the time that I was planning this quilt, I was teaching some of my co-workers how to quilt. As I was showing the students the fabric, one of them said “See what I bought at Keepsake Quilting ” and threw the pink fabric on top of my pile.  It was the spark that this quilt needed. I called Keepsake and read the information that was on the selvage to them.  A few days later, I had the yardage that I needed to make this quilt.  This one is also machine pieced and hand quilted.

These two quilts are still in my collection.  Someone once asked me why I had so many quilts.  My response is that some people collect salt and pepper shakers, I collect quilts.  It just takes more space.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
