See, I really do make quilts

In my last post, I had stated that I do not have many pictures of the quilts that I have made. Guess what? I have some to share with you of the quilt I made for my mother-in-law. She was grateful enough to take some for me and I thought I would share them with you. There is nothing like seeing the real thing.



See, I really do make quilts and not just use EQ to make them.

I remember, when I went out shopping for fabric to make this quilt. I went to like 5 different quilt shops just to get all the fabric I need. Spread the wealth you know. This quilt has over 25 different fabrics in it. I love to use lots of fabric in all my quilts. Miss Rosie would love me.

I think that the striped strip birders set the quilt off. I had to cut 5 long strips on 45 degree angles. What a pain. It does make the quilt. If I did not love my Mother-in-Law I'm not sure I would have gone to all this trouble. Wait, yes I would!!! I love that "pop" factor on a quilt.

I just might need to make this quilt into a pattern to sell. What do you think?

Over the next few weeks I am going to try and get some more pictures of the quilts that I've made over the years and post them for you. I have three at work that I've made. I just need to remember to take the camera one day.

  1. Why not try to sell it? You can always give it a shot. I'm way jealous of your EQ skills! I got EQ6 for christmas and still havent really sat down with it yet. Nice blog.

  3. Jacquie...I did not quilt this one. I sent it out to a lady here in Kansas City. Just love the work she puts into my works of art. She is the only one I use for my quilting.
