This is a quilt I just completed of 1 inch squares – 5,800 of them! The backing fabric is a maroon floral and it is all hand quilted. I had a lot of fun constructing it and it is made from all scraps. A friend told me of a saying that is on his mom’s refrigerator: “The true measure of insanity is purchasing yards of fabric, cutting them up and sewing them back together again.” And isn’t that the truth yet the irony in it is that this quilt making thing is so very therapeutic for me!
This is a T-shirt quilt I finished for a woman who started it and couldn’t finish it. Here are her comments…
“Thanks so much for the beautiful work on the t-shirt quilt for my daughter. She loved the quilt and so did I. It has been a pleasure working with you all these years. My grandmother’s antique quilt that you completed for me is a treasure as well as the many antique quilts you worked on for me. You always kew exactly what I wanted and it came out perfect. You are a true professional and a gifted artist. I was blessed the day I found you. Looking forward to our next project. “
