Alabama Queen Sized Quilt

Alabama Applique Quilt

I spent a great many of Monday nights helping a good friend make this quilt for her daughter’s birthday present. I had to keep a secret and not share any pictures. That was very hard to do. There are 24 12 inch squares with appliques A’s on them. The squares in the sashing are houndstooth fabric and so is the outside border. I quilted the quilt with my Juki TL98.

Feeling the Love

When you create a blog you never know who is going to stumble across it. You just hope and pray that someone does. Before Facebook, my blog was the main way I shared my craftiness with my friends and families. I don’t get to post as much now as I used too. Priorities change and life just gets in the way of what I want to do. I know that sounds selfish right? Why can’t we just sit at the computer for hours on end and sew until our hearts are content? Well for me nothing around the house would get done. What about you? I tried talking my husband into a house cleaner once every two weeks. I’m still doing the cleaning. Sigh…

Back to Feeling thee Love. I recently had a lady named Cathy who lives in France email me with a picture of a quilt she made using a quilt pattern that I created. So exciting! Who knew someone in France would stumble across little ole Fabric Mom. I asked Cathy for permission to share a picture of her quilt top with my readers.

She used the Easy Firefighter Baby Quilt Pattern. Cathy’s quilt top measures 96″ x 80″. Can you believe this is only the second quilt top that she has ever made? Hats of to you Cathy. It is gorgeous. I love the color combination and how she made sure the Eiffel Tower fabric was vertical. The fabrics she picked out all look very nice next to each other. Not to busy or blah. One again, Great Job Cathy. I can’t wait to see what you make next.

Double Irish Chain Revisited

I recently had an email in my inbox from a lovely lady who wanted to know the name of the pattern for this quilt.

It is called a Double Irish Chain. I originally made it for my mother in a queen size. She bought a bigger bed and it didn’t fit so she sent it to my brother. I hope he is keeping warm under this beauty.
