Quilts in the cabin...

We are covered with quilts. I would like to share some with you. My modem for my computer is not reliable so the iPad is what I am using (giving new meaning to hunt and peck).



I gave my son and his fiancé this churn dash which I made years ago. I forgot to photograph it so he obliged. Thank you Jeff.





I made the wall hanging for Jack after he admired it at a local quilt shop. It hangs over the bed at his house. On the bed is the quilt I made which we refer to as the "wedding" quilt.


Folded at the bottom is a rail fence made years ago but recently quilted.

Also a few years ago I made a mystery quilt. In fact I made two of the same one! I traded cutting and piecing for finishing a sweater. I have hung this one on the wall in the cabin.





I was able to finish this blog with an internet connection elsewhere. Thank goodness. I am done with the quilts for now. I hope to be adding them to my quilt gallery tab soon.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week. I am going to knit and look at the lake!

You are a very talented quilter. I enjoyed seeing all of these creations. And it's wonderful to have some other craft to do while watching the lake. Quilting is time-consuming and one must pay attention. I think that's why I've not made anything larger than a doll quilt.

Your quilts are gorgeous, Carol. Truly works of art. The churn dash quilt is so pretty hanging over the rail with greenery in the background. Happy knitting.

I loved seeing all your wonderful quilts, Carol. Each one is so special in its own way. You've really accomplished a lot over the years.

Here's hoping you have lots more in you, too!

No way are you taking too many photos! LOL Although there was a big blog discussion about people photographing food in restaurants recently.
Read about it here:

There is nothing like a hand-made quilt. If you find them in the stores, they are usually made in another country. The "wedding quilt" is just beautiful. I have several keepsake quilts from a grandmother, one called the "Wedding Ring"; I think that is an old pattern. You do amazing work. Debi
