  • I have two quilts that I am proud I made…both where made for special people in my life. They asked me to make theme quilts for their Via DeCristo weekends. More art quilting then I had ever done and stretched my creativity. The quilt I am proud I finished.. everyone of them. As Angela says…A finished quilt is better than perfect quilt.

  • I’m most proud of a Civil War reproduction fabric quilt that is queen size. I love it, and my daughter has already staked her claim to it.

  • I am very proud of the very first quilt I made. I never intended to keep it. But, when I quilted it on a long arm machine (after being given a few tips on how to quilt it by Dawn Cavanaugh) I tried my hand at writing my grandchildren’s names on various rows of the quilt. That cinched it for me and to this day use the quilt.

  • I have many quilts that I have started but never complete, now that I’m retired I hope to get back to sewing. But I have finished a king size ragtime quilt that I’m very proud of. My husband did not think I would finish!

  • I made a quilt for a family who had just moved to NYC from Houston to their young husband/father’s dream job—in Tower 1……the wife Joshi and I were connected through a quilt organization who were trying to help 911 victims cope……The children (3) wrote notes to their dad, which I copied onto printable fabric, and along with photos, it was all laid out on a football field quilt because Dad was crazy about the Green Bay Packers. Packers fabric was used to back the quilt.

    I’ll never forget this experience, and in fact met the family a few years later in Houston, where they returned to, and where I attended the International Quilt Show that year.

  • My first experience with making a quilt was to finish a quilt my grandmother started before she passed away. I gave it to one of my three daughters and she cherishes it. I recently received some embroidered pieces that grandmother finished and I can’t wait to add them in a quilt for my other two daughters!

  • The last quilt I made was from the book Distinctive Dresden’s. I had wanted to make one in memory of my grandmother who loved Dresden Plates & did them with templates. It was very rewarding to dream& then actually finish this project.

  • The first quilt I made and Finished was a Christian cross lap quilt for my daddy when he was diagnosed with liver cancer. He was never a man to show emotion or appreciation, or tell you he was proud of you. He cried when I gave it to him and said it was the most beautiful gift he’d ever been given. He showed it to everyone who came to see him, and took it to all his chemo sessions and hospital stays. If that little quilt meant so much to him…I knew I had to keep quilting. Every time I give someone a quilt I made for them, a piece of me goes to them with it. I hope I’m able to make quilts for my loved ones for many many years to come.

  • My favorite quilt I have made is one for my daughter called Dear Daughter. It is a combination of piecing and applique with awesome sayings on it.

  • I made my own Spirit of U of M quilt for my brother in law and used a simple design. Also, I hand embroidered footballs. Simple blocks of yellow and blue with blue binding. He totally loved it and I was so happy that I made a quilt on my own.

  • I started quilting when I retired, and have made several for loved ones. My favorite was a t-shirt quilt for my grandson’s graduation. It is something he truly cherishes.

  • I put together this quilt of caring hearts. the hearts were sent to me and my husband when were were both sick and after my husband passed away from my local quilt guild. We received over 100 caring hearts. I wanted to show everyone who sent them how much they meant to me during a time I need the support of family and friends most. I put on the front of each heart the name of the person who sent it and date. It is a wonderful reminder of the people who care and love us.
