Quilt Tour

I dug deep for this quilt:




It's one of my earlier quilts. The pattern was designed by my friend. She did a great job, didn't she? Black, white, and red will always be one of my favorite combinations.


This was the first time I tried a swirly free-hand pattern:



I do it much differently now, but I learned a lot from this one.


It was also the first time I attempted a little "back art":




This quilt used to be my nap quilt. It's replacement is very different, but makes me just as happy. I still love this old quilt, but I don't love the old batting that I used. It's bearding -- ick.


Please notice that the laundry lines are empty in this series of photos. I hang laundry every morning, but snapped a quick picture before it included all the clothes we sweated through yesterday. Did I mention that it's been horrifically hot? And that I don't have air conditioning? Please feel bad for me.

The red, white, and black quilt is beautiful. I feel your pain about the ants. I waged my own war earlier this year and was infuriating.

Those quilts are beautiful! My grandparent's neighbor made me a baby quilt years ago that I still help. That craft is quite an impressive one!

Hello Debby,

your quilt is wonderful.

And I don't like ants in the kitchen as well.
