Quilt With Us

My first Heirloom Quilt Project... let the judging begin......

Hello Everyone....

 It's been a long time.... Life has been keeping me away from blogging although I have been checking the posts at times. Hope all is well with everyone and alot of you have been busy I see.. I just completed my first Heirloom Quilt top which I am posting the pics of. Just have to baste and quilt it now. It is made of white batiste and white laces with pink on the embroidery and pink ribbons running through the lace.The borders and sashing have a small pink rose print, and the backing will be the same. The dark pink border does not go with it. I just put it behind to help the pics show up a little better. I learned the techniques from several books and at first I was overwhelmed until I got started and found that it isn't that hard to do.You should check the Sew Beautiful magazines with Martha Pullen website.. There is some beautiful stuff... My other goals are baby bonnets, the Martha Pullen Anniversary quilt, and eventually a Christening gown... yes I want to expand my world outside of just quilts. So ladies... tell me what you think???

Spring is here in alabama. The azaleas are in bloom as well as everything else. Believe me my allergies are already in high gear because of it. Something about the spring makes you feel more alive. Like we have a new outlook on life. A time of new changes and anticipation of new things to come. I have been reading the Womens Resolution book... from the movie Courageous. and My DH as been reading the Men's book. I challenge all of you to read it, as God has been taking me through somethings and times in my life over the last year or so that the book has helped me to put alot of things in a better perspective. It all comes down to being satisfied and acceptance. Check it out....

Well just wanted to say hello and will chat with you soon.

What a keepsake!  I agree with the others - keep it up and keep sharing your creations with us.  I don't know anything about Martha Pullen or Sew Beautiful, so I'll have to check it out.  

The movie Courageous was excellent.  One of our favorites and their best yet.  It will be fun to see what they come out with next.  I'll have to look into the books.  I'd seen the Resolutions, but not the books.

I love your quilt and appreciate all that went into it.  I've been getting Sew Beautiful magazine for years and love to look through them.  You'll have lots of fun with baby bonnets!  I'm just finishing up a toddler's spring coat and bonnet now.  Putting the pink behind your white quilt did help it show up, good thinking!

Sharon, your heirloom quilt top is beautiful.  I love Martha Pullen's show on PBS.  My favorite part is when she shows the heirloom clothing at the end.  I so very much admire the ladies from yesteryear who would do all that by hand.
