All these quilts are waiting to be quilted.
I'm not holding my breath, but they'll all get done someday.
I started this quilt after a visit to Eugene, Oregon in 2005. I live in Eugene now, and the quilt top is finally finished.
When John was in Holland a few years ago he brought back some glazed chintz reproduction fabrics.
The original chintzes were made during the 18th century on the Coromandel coast of India,
and brought to Holland by ships' captains for their wives or resale.
The quilt is my own design. Top finished 18 March 2012.
A Bunny Hill pattern. The quilt is called Le Jardin, and the fabrics are Rouenneries by French General.
I still need to embroidery the clothesline, and finsih a few other details.
Bought this quilt kit in the summer of '12 in Bellingham, WA. It is called the John Hewson Folkstyle Quilt.
The original was featured in Architectural Digest
The owners donated it to the American Folk Art Museum where it can now be viewed by everyone.
This was a Block of the Month project from Trinity quilts in VA. It depicts a mill and the girls who worked there in the late 1800's.
Most girls were not from the area, so they had to move "away from home" to work there.
Finished the top on 11 Dec. 2013.
I didn't want to cut into this center fabric, and I had always wanted to make a little red schoolhouse quilt.
This pattern fulfilled both needs. 7/12/14
Block of the month from old trinity schoolhouse quilts. Peace and plenty was designed by Judy Rothermel and celebrates the end of the civil war.

A kit purchased in Rupert, Idaho. Too much bending required to get it flat, plus the kitty likes it rumpled.

I took a Craftsy class from the designer of this quilt, Jacqueline de Jonge. I also purchased the kit which made it so much easier to follow along with the class.
