    I just decided that I "do" story quilts. Each of the quilts has a story that goes with it about the person who will get it.

    They aren't a traditional quilt pattern and they aren't art quilts. I didn't know what catagory to put them in, so I made my own catagory, story quilts.

    What do you call the types of quilts that you do?

    A Mish Mash! :lol:
    I don't have "one" style of quilting, I have to try whatever grabs my attention... But each quilt I make I have someone in mind while making them, even the charity quilts. I imagine who might receive them and what they might like :D:D:D

    Amma, I'm with you...whatever strikes my fancy or will fit the person I'm making it for...but for me it still has to be simple so far. Someday I'll try something more complicated, but not ready for that yet.

    Mine tell many stories:
    Sue can't stay on one task at one time.
    Sue is an A++ procrastinator.
    Sue is ADD when it comes to quilting.

    :D:D:D

    I call them my babies because each one takes me so long to produce! I always make quilts with the intended reciever in mind, picking and choosing fabric and agonizing over every choice. But in the end I know its just what I wanted and will fit the person to a T. I love all my babies!

    What do you call the types of quilts that you do?
    I call that type of quilt a "quilt"...LOL :D I mean really; that is what makes a quilt so special is that usually they are made with feeling. Either they are for someone, about someone, of a reflection of someone. Otherwise we would call them blankets :lol:
