Quilting!

I just got the latest issue of Better Homes and Gardens Quilt Sampler Shop Hop magazine. Oh how I love to "travel" across the country to see the wonderful shops featured! It's been a long standing dream for me and my sister to open a quilt shop. Unfortunately, she lives 5 hours away from me and neither of us have the inclination to move.

Through the years, wherever we've moved (7 times in 9 years!), I've maintained a quilting studio. My sister would come and visit me, or I her, and we'd have a "quilting bee", working on special projects ~ A "Loon" quilt for our dear aunt's anniversary, a "signature" quilt for our Mom & Dad's 50th anniversary, and "manly" quilts for husbands and sons. On these special occasions, of course we'd work in some quilt shop hopping! Lots of horsetrading would also go on in my quilting studio. I've amassed quite a collection of fabric over the years! Every time I would make a quilt, the scraps would go to my sister. Sometimes she's squeezed a much as 2 quilts of the scraps from just one particular line of fabric! This girl epitomizes the saying ~ "When Life Gives you Scraps, Make a Quilt"!

I thought I would share some photos of my quilting studio and special projects ~ such happy memories!








I have never offered anything other than a handmade and/or hand quilted doll size quilt on eBay. But in paring down my treasures while finalizing the decor colors in the house we bought a year and a half ago, I've decided to part with some of my larger quilts. This one's on eBay today:
