Quilts Made With Love


I’ve finally found some glimmers of moments to finish some quilting projects that have been screaming at me to finish. I started them some time ago and just continued to get side-swiped by life that always puts these things on hold and takes me away to other priorities. Here’s one of my favorite autumn quilts that I made and wanted to show you. Does anyone quilt or sew besides me? It seems that quilting has become more popular, but sewing in general hasn’t. We’re all just so ridiculously busy. But for some odd reason, sewing relaxes me. Listening to my old sewing machine hum along or simply hand stitching peacefully with a cup of warm tea is so calming!

I made the next quilt for my daughter, Lauren, when she graduated from college. I used her school colors of garnet and black blended with white and cream. I can’t remember the name of the block pattern, something like “woman’s work”. I’m working on my son’s quilt now, who graduated from the same university, and am using the same colors with a different block pattern.



Your comments make me smile and I promise to get back to you. I may be slow at it because I get easily distracted by something brewing in the kitchen or hummingbirds in my gardens.
