QUILTS

I have had these wonderful quilts for a long time, but for some reason find it very difficult to put them on a bed. Maybe it's because the person they belong to hasn't appeared in my head yet! Or maybe it's because I've been afraid I'd mess them up.

It does seem a shame not to have these out where I can enjoy seeing them. Maybe I better get busy redoing the McKinley so that I can show beds again. Or maybe I need to do another roombox for the guest room to showcase these quilts. I could have one on the bed and on a stand, or hanging ....

I made one complete pieced quilt for my mother, but that was enough for me. I also tried my hand at making yo-yo's once and decided to leave the work to experts, too.

Unfortunately, when we had computer problems I lost the names of the people who made both these quilts. If you are the maker of either, would you let me know, please?

MOTHER'S QUILT ON A STAND

My mother enjoyed quilting before her health prevented it and I started this quilt for her display lamp (See Display Lamps). It was intended to be in progress on a full-size quilt stand but the stand was too large to fit in the lamp. So, I finished the quilt, but didn't know what the heck I was doing and it came out stiff as a board. I had to do a lot of manipulating to make it "hang" on this smaller bedside stand.

This is the only quilt I ever finished and will probably be the last one. It was WORK.
