Sunporch Basket Quilt

Sunporch Baskets
From Sunwashed Quilts by Thimblberries 2001

Yes the quilt probably should have been custom quilted. If I had the time I'd do it by hand. Oh well edge to edge quilting and it's done.  To quote the Rawhide lyrics "Move 'em on, head 'em up, Head 'em up, move 'em out, Move 'em on, head 'em out Rawhide!" Keep those quilts a movin :)

Hank Schelter's Feather Weight 221 Table

I saw this table last year and thought about buying it but didn't....then this year I was looking at it and thought what the heck....It's the cutest table. Folds up (great for the RV) and is only 20 lbs.  The feather weight sewing machine fits right into it and when I'm not sewing, I can take out the sewing machine and use it as a spare table :) Too cool. Hank was the nicest man too. 

If you want one, here is his contact information :)

Quilters Unlimited Quilt Show

I put the photos in the blog as 'small' so don't forget you can click on the picture to super size it.   
My love of cheddar colored quilts continues.

Spent the weekend helping my friend Michelle man her booth (Michelle's Quilts n Things) at the Quilters Unlimited Quilt Show in Chantilly, VA. What a nice show.  Real quilts made by real people.  A nice change from those highly competitive quilt shows. And the show is run by the nicest bunch of ladies you'd ever want to meet.  

I bet she has the same pair of shoes at home :)

Classic blue and white quilt

I have one of these in me to do :)  Lovely.

This quilt is so simple. Gee "only" 3600 2" squares!!  Yet it was done perfectly and hung incredibly straight. Not even the hint of a ripple in the edges.  Hats off to the quilter and the longarm quilter!!   

Antique Quilt

I think this was a Bunny Hill pattern.
