Quilt With Us

My Son and DIL have a dear college friend, Alison, she was married yesterday.  Here is the quilt I made for Alison and her groom, Matt.  I made a cinch sack to put it in that matches the border of the quilt.  The cinch sack is sitting on a church pew that we have in our home.  The story behind that church pew is that our family always sat in that row at church.  The pews were A-Z and my dad "claimed" the L row for our family, stating the L stood for Love.  When the church was remodeled several years ago, my dad was given part of the L row and I'm pleased to have it in our home now!

On another note, I saw an ad on Craigslist today.  The ad stated that the woman had had plans on having her own quilt shop/long arm business, but that never happened.  She has an accumulation of (nice) fabric for .50/yd and 1.00/yd.......so I went shopping.  The 3rd picture is my find for today.  She said she still has 5 tubs to empty, so I will be visiting her again.  She's a sweet older woman and I really enjoyed visiting with her  while I picked out fabric.  The nice thing is, hubby didn't say a thing when I walked in with with a full bolt and sackful of fabric!

Never thought about looking on Craigslist for fabric. Wish I lived close. Beautiful fabric and quilt.

The quilt is just gorgeous...what a wonderful gift. I love your dad's story about the pew. Such a memory and keepsake. I recognize some of those fabrics. Great shopping!

Great quilt! The sack is very smart.  I do recognize some of your great fabric finds.  What a deal!

The quilt is beautiful.  Great colors.  And the cinch sack was such a good idea, too.  You're on a roll!  What beautiful fabrics you got at such bargain prices.  It's more like you adopted them, for a small fee, rather than bought them.

Mary, the quilt is lap size.

What a fabric find, Sue!  You can't beat "shopping" like that.  

Beautiful quilt.  

Loved the pew story.  :)  I always know when we visit smaller, rural churches that no matter where we sit, we'll be in someone's pew.  :)
