Catching up to do

I have some catching up to do there are a couple of months of photo's that I have to post with different events...but I have to organize the photos!! I have taken over 500 pictures in the last 2months!! of what you ask?? well what else but quilts. I have been to many quilt shows inbetween all else that is going on.
I have to post this picture first. My parents came a couple of weeks ago and in this visit they brought me their lazy boy chair cause Mom got a new one and I really liked hers.
If you ever have a cat that is shy and not a lap kitty get a lazy-boy. Molly "the stinker" has finally layed on my lap she loves when I get on this chair...but I have something better a pic of my mother in "her" chair. Mom is modelling a quilt that she was able to give to me from my Aunt who inherited from my Grandmother. It was made by my Great Grandmother with all the dresses of her 4 daughters and granddaughters. A beautiful Dresden plate! I am sure alot of you will enjoy this photo...I love this picture of my mom is she not the happiest?!! Nosey is with her right now SHE is a lap kitty!!

I also had some postcards to get done that were long overdue and thought I would post them. It was for a crazy patch swap I received beautiful cards and in return I had to send as many. Postcards are a great way to work with your machine stitch'n and using scraps.

Well this is the start of many quilts to post I have to make a couple of slideshows cause there are so many wonderful quilts. The year is perfect with the blossoms in the trees and everything green it makes the landscape wonderful to look at as you drive to the shows.

Don't forget to support your local guilds by going to their shows. The ladies work hard to present what they have accomplished and give us some wonderful ideas for our projects...on line is great but real live quilts is even better.


  1. I enjoyed all of your photos. That pic of your mom and the cat was priceless!

  3. Love the Dresden Plate quilt, Deb. What a wonderful family heirloom!
    Looking forward to seeing the photos from all those quilt shows you've attended this spring.

  4. Wow! What a beautiful Dresden quilt. It is a real treasure! Love that shot of your Mom and kitty. Very cute!

  5. Oops! I almost forgot. I love those postcards too!

  6. Antique quilts are the best, especially if you know the 'story' behind them. You kitty sure loves it as well!

    You can never show us too many pictures. Keep them coming!

  7. Love that photo or your mom and your kitty. The quilt is so pretty. I just love the blue fabric.

  8. A lovely treasure you have acquired! Thank you for sharing!

  9. Beautiful photo of mom, cat and quilt, great postcards, fabulous blog! Isn't it fun how even people with no sense of direction (like me) can still find the nearest quilt show! I was at one in Alaska, just days after arriving in Juneau to help care for my parents.. and one in Salem, two days after coming back home again ! One I knew about,one I didn't...but I found them! They're so inspiring...just as fun blogs like this one are!

  10. Beautiful photos. I love quilt shows too. Always seem to be able to find them along with quilting stores of course.
