    Sharing quilts - day 7

    Good morning all,

    Thank you for all the comments on my quilts. I wasn’t sure I had enough to show. At least those that I thought you would enjoy seeing. I love the traditional blocks but have noticed that I had very few of those to show. And I want you to know that I do make plenty of simpler patterns. Those are all donated.

    For my final show I start with Sherman’s March. It is a Bonnie Blue pattern

    When I went visit my SIL she took me to a LQS and I found this beautiful batik fabric with trees. Perfect for the borders on Carpenters Star

    Over by the Pond is my first experience with paper piecing. What a pain taking off all that paper

    Give a quilter and inch - this cutie hangs on my sewing room door. Yep-more flying geese. These are 3/4 X 1.5 inch. And the shoo fly blocks are 1.75 inches.
    Over time I have made several Xmas tree skirts. This Dresden one is for a 4 ft tree my folks got when they moved to assisted living. Took me a bit to figure measurements for the blades

    The log cabin skirt was designed from a bed quilt I saw in a Hallmark movie. My current project is making a queen size quilt with this same design

    Have you ever make a quilt that just didn’t appeal to you? This grey and green was actually supposed to be a large quilt with trees. It was just plain UGLY

    When my grands were small I made stockings for everyone. As new spouses and babies came more were requested. I found X stitch designs to match the fabric. All were different. I probably made 20 over the years

    my final show is a double churn dash. This was hand quilted and now sits on my couch for snuggling under with my morning coffee

        You are a fearless quilter! I love your quilts and projects. What a special gift for your family that you made each one their own stocking. Your tree skirts are an inspiration too. Thank you for sharing your journey. It's always fun to see a glimpse of other members through their quilts. Thank you!

          Lovely variety to your quilts. I really like the border on the Carpenters Star. I have a top made with a plain border. Just might have to change it.

            Beautiful again! I really like to Sherman's March, both the pattern and the colors. The log cabin tree skirt is quite lovely, too. Thanks for sharing all your beautiful quilts.

                Beautiful work. I love that you pick up pattern ideas watching the Hallmark Channel. That is awesome. Your Dresden tree skirt rocks. It looks three dimensional.

                      Such gorgeous quilts, and what a variety! I love how you did the Christmas stockings and the tree skirt.

                        Maybe I just don't have any taste (believe me, I've heard that before), but I think your green and gray quilt looks very nice. Maybe I'm just odd. Your Sherman's March quilt also appeals to me. Wonderful show this week! Thanks for sharing!

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

                            I attached the X stitch fabric to prequilted fabric and used as one piece The stocking also is lined with the prequilted fabric to give it body

                              Thanks Rob. It was the original quilt that was quite ugly. I ditched that idea and made 2 smaller quilts with the pinwheels and hour glass blocks already made
