Spotted....

Various quilty things spotted in July ... don't we quilters see our worlds through a quilter's lens?

Happiness is.... seeing that my young married daughter brought a quilt on vacation... this is "Steps to the Altar" which I made in 2014 for her wedding.  I blogged about it here on my old blog (no idea now why I felt the need to start over in blogging, ergh)


FUN... to find a couple of quilt store gems while on vacation in Utah:



Amusing... to find a crazy-quilt of a door to a great Mexican restaurant, The Red Iguana in SLC.  YES, worth the wait!



Gratifying.... to see a Faith Ringgold gem at the BYU Museum of Art:




AND THIS!!!




That is my son way in the background.  I love sharing art museum visits with my kids!


And lastly.... check out this charming piece... hanging in the house we are moving to ... soon!  I don't think the current owners are leaving it behind... too bad;).

  1. This summer I slept under several quilts I had made long ago. One was the wedding quilt made for Son Jon's Hawaiian wedding. Nice memories....

  3. It is a wonderful feeling to know that our children appreciate the quilts we make for them. I love the "Blanket Stories". I do wonder how they are "stabilized". Must be the quilter in me, I can't just enjoy a piece without wondering how they made it!
