Quilts - older and newer


Old
I made this blue jean cathedral window quilt years ago.  I put it one the beds this week and like the way it looks.
But it is very heavy - was very tiresome to sew once it got big.
I don't know how comfortable it would be sleep under either because it is so heavy.

But I do like how it looks on this bed and I see it whenever I walk past this room.  

the back
You cut big denim circles and cotton print squares.  Then they get sewn together
and all the curves get zig-zagged.  
NEW
I finished this one on Wednesday,  a strip quilt for John  and Nina's June Birthday gift.  

It is all machine done and just tied

most of this pretty blue and green fabric was from another blogger,  Jill.
 Thank you, Jill.
 John and Nina are very happy with this quilt.

NEW
this pretty quilt was a Mothers Day gift from Sheena and Bobby.
One of Sheena's clients made it,  I think the quilting is done with a longarm machine.
isn't it pretty?  

embroidered message on the quilt
so sweet!
NEW
Table runner that I just finished on Saturday.
I printed off an internet picture in 2008 of a similar one,  and I think I cut out the pieces for it then too.
just took me 4 years to make it!

  5. All of your quilts are beautiful, you are able to sew pretty much anything, aren't you. I think it's wonderful how crafty you are. I have probably told you that I have made two quilts, both for my youngest grand daughter, and I did not enjoy the experience one bit. I am going to have one made by November of this year for my oldest daughter, I'd better get the fabric for it very soon.
    Hugs, Cindy

    What a special gift from the grands for Mother's day, too.

  11. Love, love, love them all! The heavy jeans quilt will be great in the winter. I prefer a little weight, especailly on my legs when I am cold. It does look very nice on the bed. And now I know what I want to do with the patriotic fabric I just saw in WM yesterday!! Interesting star design on that one, too. The Mother's Day quilt is very special with the embroidered words and names.

  12. I love your quilts! Denim quilts are pretty heavy for sleeping under. I want to make some for picnic quilts, they are nice and sturdy.
