MATERIAL GIRL......




You've got to see her fabric collection, HA!

This post is about my wonderful sister in law and her works of art that most of us call QUILTS.  She has adamantly been working on a group of quilts for her family since before Christmas '09.  This past weekend we were blessed to have received ours.  I know nothing about quilting so I won't go into specifics, but can tell you that of the quilts I've seen, these are true treasures.  Here I'd like to share with you a few of her marvelous creations.......

  I hope she don't get mad at me, but I'm gonna call this one "CrossRoads" as I don't believe she's actually named her works, hmmmm, maybe a good idea?  Awesome earth tones in this subtle and lovely accented throw.

Here we have pinks and violets with blocks of cream that I'll call "Pretty In Pink".  Oh I know she's gonna kill me when she see's this, lol.


 I love this throw, dark and light blues perfect for a boys room or nursery or just to relax under on a cool night.  I love the symmetry and the wide deep border, one of my faves!!


This one I'll call "A Star Is Born" only cuz i'm a guy and don't know $#*% about quilting or the names thereof.  Black, violets, beige, creams, an absolutely gorgeous quilt that pictures do no justice for. 


Do comment me some feedback on these pieces as I've been trying to convince her that she should sell her creative works and become a rich woman!!

Lastly, for you T, Thank you so very much for all you've done as I know thanks are just not enough but all I have to offer until I find that one gift to give you in return.  Your diligence, hard work, and all that you put into these wonderful quilts is appreciated more than words can say.

You've a talent of which is unsurpassed (I'm bias of course) as I've seen with my own eyes, touched with my hands, your works of art!

Wow! Now that is art! Beautiful talent. I wish I had the time to make a whole quilt, but I am usually found sewing old cutters back together or repurposing them into table runners. I like restoring other people's work, I guess and bringing back to life and ancient, over-loved piece of textile history.

Hi Stephy, Yeah, I wish I just had the talent to sew, lol!! I've that old 60's quilt in my shop of which I'd figure someone would like to repair and have, but still not takers. Thanks so much for the visit and comment! I too am following your wonderful blog!! Have a great day!
