quiltiing time

Mom, Dixie, and Rhonda this is mostly for you. But maybe I can pursued some more of you to get going on quilts. February is quilt month at sew mama sew. Go to there website here, and click on the link to the blog. Here is a great tutorial for a crazy nine patch quilt that they had links to. I haven't quilted in a long time, a have lots of fabric grouped together that I really want to get going on, so I'm hoping to get lots of good ideas this month. May sound strange, but I find quilting in small doses relaxing. Love all the colors. Love combining all different colors and fabrics. Love binding quilts too. Crazy I know, but I like to do it when I work nights.

And because no post is complete without a picture.... Here is the quilt I made for Stephanie a few months ago when Finley was born. Rhonda actually has the same one for Lucy. I had to teach a class in Relief Society on this type of quilting, only we did squares instead of circles. Very easy way to quilt. And the more you wash it the better it looks.

I love that quilt, thanks for sharing. You should teach another class to moi i think I average a quilt every 5 years (since that is about how long it takes me to finish)

love it! i need to put up a picture of my one and only quilt that i'm so proud of. i HATE the binding. next time (?next time?) i'll just pay you to bind my quilt so i don't get all inpatient and ruin the quilt with my crap binding.

You need a better picture, this one doesn't do it justice. I'll email you one. I can attest to the more you wash the better it looks, it's just gorgeous, I get comments on it everywhere I take it. And, I really want you to come up and do another one with me. It will be fun, you can bring Ro and we'll have a pj/quilting party!

Whitney Yes this is such a neat quilt. We use to call this the bulls eye quilt. It is one of my favorites. My bee mad this one several years ago and we exchanged the blocks after they were cut. Now that was a hoot.
