    Sharing my quilts - celebrations

    Good morning ( at least it is still morning here) Today I decided to share some of the quilts I have made for family and friends to celebrate important days in their lives. I will start with my favorite gift for graduates - quillows. You know, those blankets with small squares attached that can be folded up into pillows. In my case, one side is usually cozy polar fleece. Somewhere along the line (probably because I was short on fabric, to be truthful) I discovered that it is pretty easy to make that pillow piece a patchwork square, which can be personalized to the graduate. try again (2).jpg
    Another occasion that seems to call for a quilt is a wedding. I have made several over the years that are signature quilts, sending out freezer paper backed squares to be signed, then completing a quilt with them. The first picture I am sharing is my son's, and it's a terrible picture of a beautiful quilt, hand appliqued and hand quilted, but I am sharing it because I wanted to include the quilts that I made with the corner squares. Yes, they are made with the flipped corner method, and the cheapskate in me felt obliged to sew a second seam and save all those little triangle square corners. I made two little quilts with them - one small one to keep, and a bigger one which we used as a prize for the couple's roping at the combination team roping and barbeque that we held to celebrate their marriage.

    And some I made for other couples over the years.

    I make lots of baby quilts, too, of course. Only room for one more picture today, so I'll end with this one. See you all tomorrow. Kathleen

        There's nothing more directly linked to who we are than the fabric that we make.

              Too many beauties today to pick a favorite from. I'm having a hard time trying to figure out how you have made so many quilts. You must be 200 years old!!! 😉 Thanks so much for giving us a peek at your quilts.

                Ha ha! No, but I’ve spent a lot of my time living in remote locations, so had lots of time to make quilts.

                  Really beautiful,work! I love tour signature quilts. I wanted to make one for our family reunion to be raffled but illnesses prevented the gathering, I still might do it just in case one is ever rescheduled one day..we can only hope..

                      Amazing group of quilts! I love the cowboy prints you found to use as focus fabrics. These are not easy to find today. I love the log cabin with stars. They are all amazing!

                        WOW another wonderful 'showing'. They are all beautiful.
                        Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

                            Lovely quilts! I recognize the fabric in the last pic. I used the same fabric in a baby quilt; they wanted a western theme.
