PICTURES OF QUILTS I MADE EARLY ON IN MY QUILTING LIFE.

This one was done about 5 years ago (so not too early on) but it won a blue ribbon in the Lampasas County Fair. I started it in Missouri and two years later finished it while waiting to get in our new home in Texas. It is a Thimbleberry pattern.


This one is appliqued hearts, lots of fun, and I did this one in Missouri while waiting on the boys with various appointments, it is tied, not quilted. They didn't mind snuggling up with this in the cold Missouri winters....


This is one of the very first quilts I ever made, hand qppliqued and hand quilted. It took me about two years. I had always wanted a Sun Bonnet Sue quilt and so I made me one. Trust me, by the wear and tear on this one, the boys didn't care if it had Sue on it, when you are cold, you are cold. It does have alot of wear on it but trust me, it is in great condition for being washed more than once a week, tugged and pulled on, fought over and love by me.


These quilts were suppose to have gone in storage but they snuck in our wares for Samoa, so they are in a room with a dehumidifier to keep them snug until we hit the states for those cold winters.

Some of you may have seen these on a different blog of mine but I closed that blog down and so...you see them once again...sorry for the repetition.....I spent most of my day playing on the computer and not sewing.
