Hi All! First I must apologize because I've been MIA lately! I've been keeping busy with things, and suddenly it's been another week! I went to a seminar on "Vintage Aprons" yesterday! Oh my gosh, was it cute! So I'll be posting about it soon. Anyway, for today, I wanted to share with you all the amazing talent of Colleen, my Uncle Tom's wife. My mom and I drove up for a visit awhile back...
Uncle Tom built her a loft JUST for quilting. This is a portion of her fabric.
She's got vintage, and new mixed together. And it's all color coordinated.
I really wanted to dig through all her fabrics! But I resisted. :)
All of you quilters out there probably know the name of this machine. However, I don't even know how to sew yet! So I can't tell you what it's called. But I'm sure it's not cheap, and I think it binds all the layers of the quilt together.
It's huge, and takes up one whole wall of the room!
Now I'll show you some of her quilts. She has dozens apon dozens that she's completed.
It was difficult to take pictures in the loft because of the lack of lighting. I'm hoping you'll be able to zoom in to get some of the detail of her work. It's pretty amazing. Look at how each of the above red blocks are completely different from the next.
This blue one is a bit older I think.
I don't know the names of quilt patterns, but I really like this one.
This one above is so amazing! Every block is different, and each is made up of birds and palms fronds.
This was a favorite of mine. It looks like something they'd sell at Pottery Barn Kids!
This is Lenny. He sat next to me while I took all my quilt pics! Hee Hee! Such a Good Boy!
Again...every single block is different.
And look at the detail.
A Ballerina Quilt for a little girls room.
This was really neat. She used Purple Toile (see the arm?) for all the blocks.
This is the one I want! But it's on her bed...so I thought I better not ask for it! LOL
And this little wall quilt hangs in their dining room. Isn't it so sweet?
I love the different fabrics that she used for the cups.
This is just their tool shed! haha But I thought it was so cute! If it were mine, I'd fill it with all of my antiques and flea market finds, and then plant a cute little garden all around it. I'm just saying... :)
***I also wanted to say Hi, and Thank You to my newest followers! I'm so happy you are joining me! :)
Thank you for following along on this really LONG post today! I'm proud of Colleen and her quilts, so I really wanted to tell you about her!
I'm linking up with Sue over at It's A Very Cherry World for more RED things today! So head on over!
