Quilt Qua site

Several months ago I was sent an email asking permission to put my blog on Quilt Qua from Connie Colten. I had never heard of site so out of curiosity I looked on web and was very impressed. Of course I gave permission to have my site lsited and feel very honored. Connie has almost everything a quilter is looking for. Saves lots of time having to search on the web site. Connie not only has quilt shops listed but blog sites from some of the best quilters known. Blogs from everyday folks like me. Isn't it fun to read blogs and see what others are making. Connie also has a Show and Tell. I love seeing what other quilters are making. Be sure and check out this wonderful site.

Nine Patch Quilt with flowers

This quilt is totally sewn by hand and hand quilted. Fabric flowers are scatterd over quilts. I wanted to get a feel of how our ancestry's sewed quilts. This is the second quilt I sewed by hand and have to say I really enjoy sewing this way. It is time consuming and slow. Since this is becoming a lost art I get pleasure making quilts this way. Quilt is 42" x 42". Yes, I still make quilts on my sewing machine. This quilt has been sold.
