2019 Quilts so far

Posted on August 29, 2019 at 10:14am 5 Comments

     I can hardly believe it's been2 years since I last blogged.  I'll have to try harder.  But you know how it is...life gets in the way.  So this year I made Izzy's Choice.  Designed by Jeana Kimball, this delightful quilt was just the ticket to get me through recovery from surgery.  I had prepped the entire quilt, which is just the way I work, and got busy as soon as I was healthy enough.  After all the applique was finished, I handquilted each block and border as separate units.  Then I…

WOW...too bland a word for your pretties...such a fine use of color, too.  We have similar tastes in our choices, so of course I love seeing yours.  Just awesome and inspiring me to get back to quilting some of mine that have been waiting to be finished.

Oh Annette, I am so glad I popped in here this afternoon!  It's absolutely stunning!  Love all the embroidery and quilting you did to make this quilt something spectacular.  You are so right they sure do take tenacity. I was just telling Lynne this week I feel good about finishing BG but Annette has several under her belt.......................I just can't imagine. I am sure your family knows how much they mean to you and they will cherish having them someday.

Annette, absolutely fabulous. You've out done yourself on this one. BTW, just saw something new that is suspose to protect your quilts from damage while hanging. If I see it again will let you know.

Annette, I used Skype to teach my sister who lives in Chicago. Unfortunately she passed away a couple of months after we started.  We did have fun though and I treasure those times.

Annette, your quilt is really stunning and all done by hand! I really like Away From Home also. My DH's cousin and his wife stopped by yesterday and I learned that she likes to quilt and it seems like she wants to learn applique. I'd love to show her to show her how but she lives over an hour from me in Dayton, OH. She does come to quilt shops in Columbus so maybe I'll get a hand applique convert yet.

congrats Annette your work is absolutely stunning. I wish I had a thimble of your talent. where do you get the beautiful flower patterns from? Are they original designs?

Your quilt literally took my breath away.  Are the block designs your own?  They are spectacular.  I love bird and these at posed so they look like they could fly right off the quilt.

We will have to see what we can do about getting together in the summer Annette- it would be fun. I am sure we will have lots to talk about. I would love to meet Diane as well.

We were very fortunate with the flood quilts- the long arm quilters were very generous with their time and even their materials- I learned lots about quilting that I did not know - especially about long arm machines which I know absolutely nothing about - other than they can create beautiful quilt patterns on quilts. I don't have the space for a long arm machine but I do admire the gorgeous designs that quilters can create with them.  I would love to do a few more charity quilts but I am still making wedding quilts ( post wedding quilts for three separate weddings including our son's and daughter in laws). I have never been quite so far behind as I have with these wedding quilts so I hope no one else I Know decides to get married for another year or so- maybe then I will finally catch up LOL.. In the meantime I am working on a couch quilt for a friend who is retiring this June..  I enjoyed last week off as I had spring break . I did make some headway on the quilts - I hope to get a little done tonight too.  Be well. Regards, A
