Keeping Busy


From time to time I do make a traditional quilt or two–and then at guild quilt workshops I try out new techniques. The first quilt here is pinned and ready for me to quilt. It is an exchange project.

The next one is one in which we experimented cutting up a linear pattern and reassembling. I had some fabric I bought in New Mexico that featured cowboys and horses and stagecoaches. I thought it would make a great Boy’s Haven quilt.

  1. I, too, keep a couple of traditional quilts going ~ usually they become crib quilts for friends and neighbors. Both of these are really beautiful! How about a detail shot of the boy’s quilt?

    • I’ll try to get a closeup of the blue-ish Boy Haven quilt. it is a variation of a stack-n-whack. I tried all sorts of combinations and put them together in a very long quilt. The boys are teenagers and some of them are quite tall. I am not very fast at completing them and I have to think about how i want to quilt them. Getting them on the frame is always the hardest step.
