    I grew up watching the females in my family make quilts by hand. They also would make rugs.
    I have helped cut fabric for them.
    I am a sucker for a hand made quilt or rug if you can find them at auction.
    I have one now badly in need of repair, but nobody around here makes quilts.

    Well I don't have to feed or water it, so it can stay where it is till I find someone to repair it.
    I like the heft of the cotton batting, not the fill stuff.

    The weight of the cotton is like getting a hug.

      Ready for Borders

      I guess I never posted this picture of my daughter's quilt. I can't put it on FB yet because while she knows I'm making a quilt, she doesn't know what the pattern is. It's ready for borders, and I think I have hit every quilt shop in a reasonable driving distance since we've been in MI, but haven't had any luck yet. The place I'm going to on Monday specializes in batiks, so maybe I'll have some luck there.

        That is gorgeous and represents many hours of work, I know. But--she will cherish it.

          Dan's Lap Quilt Finished

          Now that we have no need for a blanket to keep us warm, I have finished the last stretch of the binding on Dan's lap quilt, and it's hanging over the back of his recliner.

          Here is the picture I snapped out on the grass behind the rig. I thought I had a close-up of the quilting (done by Nancy Troyer in the Kansas City, KS area - she's a master), but maybe you can zoom in on the picture to see it.

            Top Almost Ready

            The top for my daughter's quilt is almost ready. I've got the back ready, too, and all I need to do now is to clip all those pesky little threads off the back of the top (otherwise, they show through after quilting). If you look closely, you can see the X & O's. This is the only place I can show it off. She still doesn't know what pattern I've chosen.

              That's beautiful. Here is one that Kaye just finished. She finished the top about a year ago.

                  I agree with Zerelda; that is gorgeous.

                    I'll tell her. She worked on that top on and off for a year.

                          Colors are not exact I didn't do something right with the pictures but it shows the quality of her work.

                              This is a quilt of valor she made for me. There are several official patterns for these quilts.

                                If there are any quilt shows around, Kaye needs to enter. Hers are outstanding.
