Not to Brag



OK, I am bragging!  I just did a tally of the quilts I've made since I started quilting in 2009.  The total finished quilts is 153! 



Most have been gifted.  Most have been original designs.  Since I've been a widow my annual totals have decreased, but I keep plugging along.  I'm averaging almost 12 completed quilts a year, not bad.

Sew Hometown Quilt Top is complete


The 2nd Inspiring Stitches quilt top is assembled.  I sewed the BOMs for both years consecutively.  This is the top from the 2019 BOM calendar.  It went together really fast and I'm very happy with the result. The two variations in this one are the butterfly block and one of the star blocks.  

This was finished on Wednesday, photographed on Thursday and posted on Friday!  Now to decide on the quilt backs for these two.


May your bobbins always be full,

Heartland Heritage Quilt Top is Done!



The first Inspiring Stitches quilt top is assembled.  This is the top from the 2018 BOM calendar.  It went together really fast and I'm very happy with the result.  As you can see, I decided not to use the Sewing Machine block.  I give most of my quilts away as gifts and I thought most of my recipients wouldn't care about the sewing machine in their quilt.  I made another star block and I'm happy with my decision.  



May your bobbins always be full,
