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.
