…and she quilts

My mom is such an awesome person.  She works a full-time job as a bookkeeper, she works another full-time job as a Christian bookstore owner, she goes to college, she has lunch with her daughter every week…and she quilts!


This is a picture of the Christmas table runner she quilted for me.  Not only did I receive one, so did her sisters, her mom, her nieces, and her employees at her store.  Each table runner is different, and sorry ladies, but mine is the best!

Thanks Mom!  You are awesome and I love you!

Bible Covers

Here are some pics of my latest project. A reversible bible cover I made for my friend/co-worker, Chris. It was a fun project because I was able to use my Cricut to make the flowers. Here is side #1:

And here are bible covers I made for Chris to give her daughters, Sarinna & Morgan, for Christmas.

Go Colts!

Fellow quilter and friend, Cheryl, created this AWESOME Colts quilt.  I L.O.V.E. it!

Marilyn did the quilting for Cheryl. The finished project is very cool.

And again, Go Colts!

Summer Breeze

This quilt was a work in progress for several months before I finally finished it.  It was my first attempt at free motion quilting on something bigger than a burp cloth.

I had so much fun selecting the fabric.  Marilyn and I went to the Pajama Sale in Shipshewana last February and found this fabric at Yoder’s.  What a great find.  I just love the reproduction fabric.

This quilt now has a home in Kaylee’s teacher’s house.  Mrs. Eltzroth is having a baby this month and the quilt was Kaylee’s Christmas gift to her teacher.

Kari’s Quilt

My cousin Kari joined our little quilting group this past fall.  The project at the time was “Tumbling Through the Stars”. Kari made the cutest baby quilt with green, pink and lavender.

Here are the pics of her completed project.  Very cute!



Kari did an awesome job at both piecing and quilting.  I guess all those years of 4-H paid off.  Great job Kari!
