Put A Family Letter In Your Quilt !

"Family Letter Quilt"...if anyone knows who made this, please let me know so we can credit them :)
Isn't this a great idea! I have the diaries of my dear Grandmother and this is what I'd like to do with some of her pages:
You would need some computer fabric/ paper to transfer the note and a picture of her to. The "quilt" is basically just a rectangle (the note printed on fabric/ paper) with a quilt border. Then applique or fuse on the photo over it. Fun!

"Amish" quilt tops!

"Trip Around the World"...

and "Center Diamond"

Here's two quilt tops I made and sent off to be hand quilted for the upcoming auction. (I hate to hand quilt).
   I have lots of Amish quilting books that I collect. So, I made my own pattern and created these smaller versions of Amish quilts. LOVE their simplicity and earthy colors!

Pennsylvania Relief Sale

These are a sampling of some of the quilts that will be in the upcoming quilt auction in Harrisburg (*their maker(s) will be listed in the quilt auction catalog that you can pick up at the sale)

The Pennsylvania Relief Sale is coming up soon in Harrisburg!

Here is a quote from their website:

After 60 years, one aspect continues to be the defining piece to the sale: the annual Quilt Auction. The Quilt Auction celebrates the work of numerous artists and needle workers. 

 Quilters spend hours choosing patterns and fabric, piecing, appliqueing, embroidering, quilting, and finishing. The beauty and artistry of the quilts sold at the sale are unmatched. Hundreds of people attend the two-day live auction to bid on and buy the state’s finest handcrafted quilts.

Make your state a QUILT!

Texas Quilt by Deola Mitts

Look at this great quilt that Deola Mitts just finished! What a super idea. Just gather fabric that depicts what's in YOUR state and make it in the shape OF your state....so cool!

I live in PA, so I could find fabric with Amish buggies, apples, farms, snow, flowers, buildings, etc. The possibilities are endless!
What would YOUR state fabrics be?
