Quilt Complete!


I love the feeling of sewing on that last little stitch on a quilt! Yes, it's a Christmas quilt, but I'm sharing it anyway. Completed projects are always a cause for celebration around here!


It's a simple Turning Twenty pattern and I am really pleased with the way it turned out. I bought the fabric back in June in Las Cruces when DD attended the State 4-H Conference. Being

cooped up with hundreds of 4-H teenagers for 5 days required a side trip to the quilt store in order to keep my wits about me. Just kidding, but there is something to be said for the therapuetic qualities that lie within the confines of a quilt store!

My quilts aren't very elaborate, but I love 'em and I make them them in hopes that people will enjoy cuddling up with them for years. There is just something comforting about a homemade quilt.
Presently I am also working on a baby quilt for a friend that needs to be completed and I have a scrap quilt and a flannel quilt that needs to be quilted. I'm hoping to sneak away to a quilt show in Texas in a few weeks and take a hand quilting class. I'm not sure how much quilting I'll get done now that the weather is warming up, but I would like to get that baby quilt to the baby while he is still a baby!

That turned out so well! I really like the colors and don't think they limit you to only the Christmas season. They are a real homey combination of fabrics. Well done, again, my friend!

So much of enjoying a quilt's quality is not only the warmth, but also an appreciation for the time and care that went into making it. Some of my clearest memories are of my grandmother's and mother's quilts.
