Piecing Paisley

Pin It
I'm in the sewing room and working with the paisley fabric. Fabric picks

I've always thought about doing a contest piece and I think this will be a try ?

I use the "How to method"  - HERE

There will be a traditional pattern, but the rest, it's going to be me, not for a book, not for sell, not for anyone BUT me !

I need an all about me project, it's been a very long time.

Please notice, that NONE of these patterns, colors are textbook, but they work. ! !
It will be machine pieced, hand appliqued and hand quilted. It will not be done tomorrow and that's alright, I need to start taking me time.... again!

Be Kind to all, Beth

Graduation Quilt from 2000

Pin It

Graduation Quilt from 2000
When both of our boys graduated from high school, I did a quilt for them to take to college. It was all the thing at the time, and may still be, to do a t-shirt quilt. To me, the boys needed my quilts.

Graduation Quilt from 2000, red, white and blue fabric

Son #2 graduated in 2000 and I found this great fabric.

The quilt was machine pieced and long-arm quilted in spring 2000. It's the quilt they curl up under and watch television with still today !
