What’s In The Quilt Frame?


The Inner Shadow Box Diamond In A Square Pattern Is In The Frame!


It took about 2 hours to put the quilt markings on this wall hanging!   Before I start quilting, I will baste the edges with black thread and take the pins out.  The wall-hanging is 40.5″ x 41″ is layered with a gray poly fill batting and will be hand quilted with black quilting thread.  This quilt is for sale and can be purchased by clicking the STORE button found at the top of this post.

I’ll keep you posted with the quilting progress along the way~!

The Flannel Flag Is Finished!


The Americana Flannel Flag Wall-Hanging is Finished. This little quilt is 25.5″ x 19.75.”  This quilt is for sale and can be purchased by clicking the STORE button found at the top of this post.


Here are a few pictures of this little quilt in progress.


One end of the quilt is rolled.


The quilt is rolled on each end. I mark my quilts with light colored pencil that gently rubs off or comes off in the wash. I’ll show you my box of quilting stencils I have collected over the years in another post.

The Next Quilt On Deck


The Next Quilt on Deck to Be Quilted is a Shadow Box Wall-Hanging!

The Shadow Box Quilt Pattern came from a book called, Country Quilts in a Day:  Using Strip Quilting & Other Speed Techniques by Fran Roen. I love the title of the book:  Country Quilts in a DAY…it never happened that way for me, but it sure has been fun trying to sew quilt tops together in a day!


I sewed this top together over 20 years ago!  Oh My!

Warmer Days


Warmer Days Mean Quilting Can Be Done on the Deck!

This is a picture of the Clorax Pen Vacation Quilt on the back deck.  I have finished quilting this one!

I have 3 different sets of C-Clamps and various sizes and lengths of pine boards, and a large collection of quilting thumb tacks I use to fit any size, large or small, quilt in a frame. I sometimes have three different quilts set in their quilt frames to work on at any one time.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
