Hey! I'm Glad you came by for a visit.
I'm also glad to finally be able to show you my Star Quilt I've been working on for a little while now.
Right out of the gate, I must tell you I'm not the state fair kind of quilter or really any comparison to a good quilter. I just love quilts! My grandmother made them for everyone getting married or having a baby and some just because she thought you might need another.
My grandmothers quilts were made of scraps she collected for worn clothing and various other places and she also tack quilted. She would have bags and bags of pieces cut and a few patterns drown somewhere. They were an extension of her love that she sewed on her Singer Pedal sewing machine.
My quilts are scrap quilts as well and fabric I just come along with. I don't tack quilt and I don't have quilting frame. I can't really devote the space to a huge frame. My style is just to throw them on the floor or across the bed and baste stitch it together.
I can also be a bit lazy as quilting goes. My pieces are rather large. I know myself enough to know I don't always have the patients or the time.
This quilt I made for my own bed which is King size. So it's really quite a big quilt when speaking of quilts.
It is typical of the quilts I've done in the past; there are pieces of old clothing, pieces from a few of Grandma's old chenille bed spreads, and some new( scrap) fabric that we make where I work. So all in all it is full of pieces of my life.
Thank you for stopping by
letting me share my
love of a quilt
