A Quilt as Design

Fabric shapes, sewn together
Does makes a quilt.
Shapes in a straight line
And some are at a tilt.

Perhaps the most fun of all
The hunt for cute fabric.
Yards are, for the stash
So fantastic!

Although quilts, are often used
To keep you cozy warm,
A quilt is, without a doubt
A stunning art form.

Blue and White Tea Quilt

Quilt throw

Machine quilted cotton

I have made a few quilts over the years and I thought I would share some. This Blue and White Tea quilt my sister and I made for a family member. This person likes tea, blue and white china and a splash of bright color here-and-there. At the fabric store we picked out all the blues that would go with a tea cup and pot fabric.

This quilt is constructed of squares and occasional four triangles making up a square. To give it a slightly formal touch we made the edging and binding out of a simple stripe.
