Stories In My Mind!


Vintage Finds!



When I quilt on these lost forgotten treasures I wonder....
What was she like?
In what part of the world did this start its journey?
Was there a family?
Why hadn't she finished?
Were they rich, poor, happy, content, lost. lonely etc.....




And many.............day dreamy thoughts drift in while I touch and feel her art and what she had envisioned. 






So by the end of the quilt I have created a person that I know allot more about.  I maybe revealing a crazy side but it is fun to have a picture in my head, the time period and imagine her in her home with her family.











I have been lucky to have been gifted and professionally quilt for others, some VERY old and worn pieces that may have been made during difficult and hard times. That is when I also enjoy listening to audio books from that time period and I envision a story that the quilt projects. 

 Could they be ghosts?






What I have discovered about me is.....
I always considered myself more of a 
contemporary or modern quilter.
And look at me now!

Pretty In Pink!




I am sliding in at the last minute completing and posting my OMG project.



This is for a little girl that will be arriving 
in a few days! 
Her mommy asked if I could make this particular quilt in these colors.



I am  pleasantly surprised how soft it turned out. It has a mix of flannel, cotton, eyelet and minky.

I hope she likes it!
