Quilting Art

Sketch for a baby quilt that I am working on...
all cotton fabrics, hand-pieced and hand-quilted,
for a new granddaughter on the way!
As usual, I bought extra fabric, "just in case"
and now have leftovers for other projects...

Tips of fingers get calloused and a bit sore
from quilting, even with the use of a thimble,
but the quilting is my favorite part.
(Basting is my least-favorite part)
Stuck a corner of the quilt in the scanner,
so not the best image but you get the idea...
hope to post photos when it's done--
hopefully in time for the baby shower!


  1. Your stitching is so precise and your pieces are cut and sewn so evenly and exact. My grandmother always hand quilted every quilt she made, so I can truly appreciate your beautiful efforts.

  2. Hi Dianne - so THAT'S what they are called! Truffala trees!
