All About Quilts

If you are looking for a recipe, look another day.  Since I only have one blog, i will use this for recipes, travel, and my quilting treasures.

Today, I am hoping to reach some quilters, as I have been cleaning out some of my quilting stuff, and I use that term loosely.  We quilters seem to “stash” our stash and keep on stashing! I know I did when I was working so I would have plenty to work on when I retired.  And boys howdy, do I ever!  I have four plastic boxes, or totes, with “WIP’s” going or fixing to get started.  That’s nothing new for us quilters.  We never, NEVER, have just one project going.

I have one on the quilting frame, two in the process of being hand quilted, one that is being hand pieced (no hurry on this as it goes traveling with us) and a top that needs to be pin based for machine quilting.  And that is how us quilters roll!  Never a dull moment. It was such a nice day yesterday I sat on the patio and quilted –

But I did need to get some stuff I knew I would never get to, or have lost interest in completing, off the shelves and see if someone had an interest in, and if not, that’s ok, too. I have a wonderful animal shelter they can be donated to if no one shows interest.

I also have quilt books I need to go through – that’s next.  And I have some fabric I know I won’t use that I need to get out of the quilt closet.  That’s next.

So here goes….If you are interested in any of these, just leave a comment and say which one (i.e., quilt one, quilt two, etc.) you like or would like.  If there are a couple that caught your eye, you can list that.  I plan on making a list and putting the names under the quilt and picking a name from that list for each quilt package. Easiest way to do it so be sure and list if you have an interest in more than one.

QUILT ONE: Finished size I think it said 38×45- includes backing in package – a Christmas design – comes with a panel – can keep whole as panel, has a piece that can be used as border – real cute – and fabric for corner stars – all you need is thread and batting.

QUILT TWO – 62×84 – has all fabric to make the log cabin aanels and cabin borders – includes the fabric panels for center log cabins and large blocks  – and for the borders – I don’t think this has the backing included – I don’t remember that it did.

QUILT THREE – 20×26 – a wall hanging or a cute table top – again a Christmas theme –

QUILT FOUR – 48×64 – this is a raggedy log cabin – you only need your batting and thread on this one since it self backs – great colors – and no binding!

So if you are interested, just leave a comment and say which ones you are interested in – I will pick recipients Saturday, January 21st but won’t get these in the mail until Monday January 30th.  That will give me plenty of time to get addresses and get everything to the post office!

 

Thanks everyone! And Thanks Karen for the shoutout!
