YOUR Quilting Legacy?

Quilt Legacy

Good Morning, Quilters!

This article was published in Country Living Magazine recently and I thought it was exactly what we have been discussing lately!

How will our quilts stand the test of time?  Will anyone cherish them?

The family of Janet White of Morristown, NY certainly did!

Janet White was known for her quilt making…She made over 100 quilts for family and friends.  When she died last week at age 84, her family draped her quilts over the pews at her funeral.

Her story and her family’s love of her quilts is heartwarming!

Quilt on, Ladies!  Quilt on!

What do YOU think?  We’d LOVE to hear!

My Sewing Studio-Before and After!

 

Sewing Room, Lori Kennedy

Good Morning, Quilters!

Do you remember the”Before” photos of my sewing room?  (I wrote about it HERE and HERE)  It was an organized mess–BUT it was brightly lit–so I loved it!

Last year I started the process of remodeling my sewing room…

The shelves were installed in December…

And I lived half in and half out of the room while I waited for the painter….

The real hardship came along with the painter– I couldn’t be in the room for ten days!

But it was definitely worth the wait!!!!

I am slowly moving in—organizing and purging as I go.

I’ve even found a few lost friends (more UFOs!)

It’s a little slice of heaven…

You won’t be seeing me for some time….

Cooking?  1-800-PIZZA

Lost in the upstairs room,

How Can Quilts Tell a Story?-Open Line Friday

Quilts can Speak

Good Morning, Quilters!

I believe that quilts that tell a story are more likely to be cherished by our family and friends and consequently, more likely to stand the test of time..(as in not become a painter’s drop cloth–read more HERE)

So how do we communicate The Story?

Let’s brainstorm ideas today!

We can leave messages in the machine quilting…(See Pat’s Quilt HERE) or Henry’s Quilt HERE

Labels can include more than just the quilter’s name, date and home town…

Quilts can Speak

ENRICHING THE STORY

The colors we choose,

The patterns we design,

The machine quilting motifs we stitch

all help Tell the Story…

What about YOU?

What techniques have YOU used in YOUR quilts to Sing YOUR song?

We’d LOVE to hear YOUR STORY!
