This and That

I thought I’d show some of my stash. What Gary doesn’t know about…   Actually, I found this on Pinterest but it sure could be mine!

I have been remiss in showing quilts I’ve longarm quilted for customers. Leslie received a gift of Merimeko fabric and used the blocks in fun ways. The leaves are dimensional. I smile when Leslie brings me quilts. 

This is the back of a quilt she made for a grandchild. If I ever find that map panel, I’m buying it!

Now that’s a colorful quilt! Leslie had fun cutting up her stash and piecing. Everything works, no decisions, just sew! I bet you could even have a glass of wine and make this quilt. Maybe a glass of wine would be beneficial in fabric selection. 

I had fun pulling out my most colorful, variegated threads. 

I quilted a big stipple over all but a different design for each flower. Thanks, Leslie, you certainly brightened my studio. 

Yesterday I walked all over Longwood Gardens. Everything is in bloom at once! Here in Kennet Square, we think this is one of the most beautiful Springs in a long time. I really, really want to make a quilt from this photo because I think the composition is very nice. But I have challenged myself to not make the next quilt white flowers. Hard!

I recently upgraded my photo storage to iCloud. Now I can take a million billion photos. If I just had some logical sorting and filing system and the discipline to use it, life would be complete.

  1. What a beautiful assortment of color in all your pictures!!! Leslie is also a wonderful artist!
    Terry, I believe I have seen that map at quilt shows from a vendor who sells the Quilts Of Valor fabrics. I’ll try and find it for you!

  2. You have been busy. I really thought that sewing machine was yours. Keep sharing. Can’t wait to see more.

    Hi Terry. I purchased the USA panel at the Serendipity Quilt Shop in Dagsboro DE. Not sure if they would ship to you or not but I am sure they can provide info to find it on line
