New to Quilt with Us


I'm new to Quilt with Us, and I'm looking forward to getting to know other quilters here. By way of introduction, my name is Dena DALE Crain, because there's another textile artist in Austin, Texas, named Dena Crain!!

I'm the one who taught online quilt classes for Quilt University until it closed, then tried going solo with QuiltEd Online, and now I'm back again teaching this time for…

Hexie baby quilt

Baby's momma didn't want to get too carried away with pink, so she sent me a picture of the nursery colors.  The rug became the inspiration for the quilt.

I really had to dig through my stash for the dark navy and pale pink, being careful of the prints in order to match the contemporary feel of the rug.  Putting tans and grays together threw me for a bit, but…

my latest purse

Although I should really have been quilting on a wallhanging, instead I decided I needed a new purse made with fall fabrics to take to a quilt show I'm going to in Springfield MO next week.  My husband said this looks like something only a  great grandmother would carry out in public, but all the women I have shown it to love it.  …

an older baby quilt

I neglected to get pictures of this quilt a year ago when my great-nephew was born.  I'd had the border collie fabric for several years.  It had originally been intended for my nephew's oldest child, but the fabric didn't come in time.  Then he had 2 girls after that, so I just held onto it.  When we knew this little one would be a boy, I decided to dig out the fabric and use it up.  

The front:…

Scrub top Irish Chain baby quilt

The latest baby quilt for my new great-niece: an Irish Chain made completely from fabric from Mom's old scrub tops.  I used to make her shirts/scrub tops that she wore the years she worked.  She was an RT (radiology technologist or x-ray technician).  My niece, who just had her 3rd baby girl, is also an RT.  This new little baby shares a middle name with mom (the great-grandma).  Mom was delighted - with the name and the quilt.  

The baby's first name has celtic/gaelic origins, so…

It's been awhile since I posted.

It's going to take awhile for me to catch up on all your blogs. My computer went to the shop a month ago and I just got it back yesterday.  

I have started two quilts, made some progress on a Wall hanging and at the present time cleaning out things I don't need in my sewing room and reorganizing the closet. I also cleaned my bedroom closet and got rid of a bunch of stuff.  

We had a very hot Summer so I'm glad the weather is cooler so I can sit and sew without melting. I'm…

70th birthday party

Saturday we had 70+ people over to celebrate DH's 70th. It was a perfect weather day.... plenty of food and sunshine and fellowship. All of my family was there. Feeling blessed. Thought you'd enjoy an updated pic. It is our four kids, two in-laws, and Miss Bailey (8) along with DH and me.

Either later this week or the first of the following DH will start 6 weeks of 5 days a week chemo and radiation. Another new chapter begins....…
