This flannel quilt was made for my father-in-law. It combines plaids, stripes, and solids. It is a large lap-size with flannel top and back and a polyester batting.
This lap quilt was made for my aunt. It is flannel (top and back) with a polyester batting.
The star quilt was a tryout for a flannel quilt I made for my aunt. It is a donation quilt for a children's charity.
This is a quilt I made for my husband who loves gardening. It is made with vegetable fabrics I collected, and it is the original Turning Twenty pattern (though I made it a Turning Thirty so it would be queen-sized). I had it quilted in a blowing leaves panto by Penny Jurgens (Marshfield, MO).
I made this as a tryout for the Turning Twenty quilt I had planned for my husband. It is a quilt for donation to a children's charity.
I collected flannel shirts, dresses, pajamas, etc. for years to put together this quilt. The blocks finished at 8", and I used crochet cotton to tie it. It is queen-sized, backed with flannel, and has two layers of 6 oz. polyester batting inside.
This is the first quilt I pieced. I put it together beginning in 1979 but only got it quilted in 2013. It is king-size, and it was quilted with a pantograph of a sleeping cat by Penny Jurgens (Marshfield, MO).
Here are a couple of started projects I had put aside and ignored for months...finally finished them yesterday and today.
These ties are amazing! Made of silk, wool, acetate, cotton, polyester, even knits.. These might be useful for quilts, right? A friend makes quilts for the homeless, so I'll ask her if she wants them after they're washed.. The grubbiest ones will be tossed into File 13...
A few have famous names on them, but I don't expect they're worth anything now..
I am looking buy a long arm quilting machine....used...not sure how much I am looking to spend....any info anyone could provide would be wonderful...thank you...
