I entered this mini into the quilt show last weekend held by Kindred Hearts, the show turned out fabulous with many visitors and the weather was perfect considering they were calling for 4in of snow…NOT! beautiful sunshine both days
This was the mini I had made and when I went to my retreat 2 weekends ago I quilted, and quilted and quilted to get it done. All hand quilted of course, just in the nick of time
I had pieced this quilt when we had the SARS epidemic and hand quilted it took about 6 months and is still one of my fav`s not much color but love the fabrics. Pattern was from one of the Quiltmaker mags, sorry cannot remember what year, I then didn`t learn to write things down.
I entered this mish mash of a quilt too, thought I would be able to deplete some scraps…again NOT! This was also made at the time of our epidemic, there are lots of memories in this one since most of the scraps are from quilts that I had made. I used only scraps for backing batting and binding as well.
I made this one a while ago too, it was a stack and whack with the boarder fabric and the fabric was called the Unhappy Hour so I thought it was perfect to name the quilt as such, I also loved both background fabrics, the dark one has cats eyes
I guess you can also see that I love prairie points
If you would like to see some great pictures of the quilt show go visit the True Blue Canadian she took some great shots!
Then the Temecula company did a basket BOW mini for March and who can resist baskets, (well I know someone but it ain`t me) so here is mine. I had a little bit of a tough time with the outside edges and the cutting measurements as you can see it just fit but I have to take it apart and redo it so that I can have a 1/4in all around and not cut off my squares, darn! but it will be worth it, pictures are like kids they don`t lie and tell it like it is, I see that I may have to look at that bottom right block too, she is swaying to the right
Scrap Itch
Then Cheri posted another mini to make I like to call this one the Scrap Itch, this was made from another quilt that I have to get a picture of and show you, it was made after retreat, that is a new story
Hope you all have a wonderful Easter thanks for taking a little time to visit my humble blog.


  1. These are so nice! I know what you mean about not making a dent in your scrap pile. Me, either, but I keep trying. From these pictures, it looks like you should have made a *big* dent. I think my favorite here is the top quilt.

  2. What a wonderful show! (and how nice of the weather to cooperate)

  3. Happy Easter!
    You do love prairie points. I do too but have only put them in one little round quilt.
    I have one basket to make and then I will put my quilt together. Yours is great with the plaid sashing.

  4. Again such nice ones... What do you do with all your quilts? Give them away or keep them ?
