Quilt crossings

This quilt just returned home  
from a traveling exhibit

I'm happy to now hang her up in MY house!

It is very minimalist and contains
LOTS of recycled even some "ancient" fabrics.
I say ancient because the OLD old muslins
I included are stained and probably
100 years old.

I LOVED adding that element to this quilt!

The old fabric gives this quilt a quality
that Joanns just couldn't.

The hand quilting adds so much TEXTURE!

Hand quilting.
Old fabric.
Piecing scraps together.

Just SOME of the reasons I LOVE to quilt!


  1. That's a great quilt! I love looking at the detail of the quilting on the light areas. It adds so much interest.

  2. I love it! It has a wonderful depth to it!

  3. Just love "Crossing". You can really see the different lights you have piecing in. I kind of laughed at you just can not find at Joannes. We have a Fabric-Land here in Canada. One store had a bad roof leak and I am sure you could have found some old stained fabrics. The store always had the old moldy smell to it.

  4. Do you play piano? Your quilt reminds me of one. Very pretty.

  5. Wow! This looks wonderful. And I agree; all the hand quilting does add tremendous texture.

  6. The blog are the best that is extremely useful to keep.
    I can share the ideas of the future as this is really what I was looking for,
    I am very comfortable and pleased to come here. Thank you very much!

  7. What a great way to practice's the first thing I thought of...

  8. I just love it! It is very special!
