Quilting in the off season

Made a baby quilt for a friend. Thought I'd share the photos.

You start out with pieces of fabric 1" x 1" and they slowly get bigger.







Starting to see what its going to look like now!!



Put the back on



Do some quilting



the finished product

Wow, sweet quilt! My great-grandmother made me a quilt and I love it! My grandmother crocheted(spelling?) and I have some nice afghans. You definitely got some talent, keep up the great work.

Re: Quilting in the off season

LOL. This was the first quilt I ever did on a machine. All of my others are hand sewn, all the way.

Was at a Menonite store yesterday getting fabric for another quilt, and I told the ladies I was going to likely go back to hand quilting.

They looked at me and said "Why? Even the Amish machine their quilts. None of us have the time"

I told them they were bad influences and they laughed like heck.

Most likely, I'll machine the pieces and hand quilt the top like I did this one. I'm doing a very similar design for myself this time, but in different colors.

Then I have 2 others I want to do that look impossible! The pieces are so small, angular, and there are so many of them!!

Re: Quilting in the off season

Hang around HPA a little more often and you'll get all the patience you can handle, lol. But thank you for the compliment. My quilts are made with love.

She could be! English folk from the city pay a lot of money for high quality handmade Amish quilts. She has to put on that black dress and bonnet, and let them take her picture while she takes their money.

Just kidding Kathy, I'm sure that quilt will become a family heirloom. Most excellent.

Re: Quilting in the off season

I was gifted with 3 queen sized, hand sewn quilts for Christmas this year and the love and time put into them is just amazing.

I do not have the patience for this but you have done a beautiful job. Lots of love wrapped up in that quilt!

Uh Oh! Janie's got her gun!
