For the Love of Quilts
These are some the quilts I made... some I still have, and some are in the homes of family and friends.. I love the whole process of making quilts, from picking out the fabric to sewing the binding on. I do some hand quilting, but it takes FOREVER!! The red & white Irish Chain quilt is is a handquilted king..it took 2 years to finish , YIKES!! So its not a speedy process. Most of the quilts get sent out to be machine quilted but that works out the best for me! I have been making more couch quilts ( twin size and a alittle smaller). These go together faster and make great gifts. This is just a little glimpse into something I love to do. Enjoy!
My name is Dee. I am a farmwife and mother of 2 grown daughters. I have passion for quilting, gardening, cooking, reading, and a photography. Living the country life can be demanding and at the same time, rewarding. Welcome to my life on the farm!
