Thea's quilting trials and tribulations.

Life teaches us many lessons! Some of the greatest lessons in my life have been taught to me by my quilts and the people that I have met through my quilting.



I took a class from Linda Everhart for a technique called fusique... this quilt looks so difficult but was actually fairly easy to make - I can't explain her technique.  She has a website that explains it all - if you go - look at her quilt called Quilt Police.  That is another pattern of hers that I hope soon to make -  My DH loves this quilt and it hangs in his pool room.  He wanted me to embroider #s on the circles but at the time I was finishing it up my embroidery machine was at the repair shop.  Maybe someday i will do that for him.

Althes, COOL use of color.  I went to the website and I liked Uncle Sam.  When do you find the time for all these amazing quilts?

I like this quilt too. It kinda reminds me of a modern day game board. Pretty colors. I went to the website too. Cute idea to do an actual quilt police quilt.

The quilts I have posted are my favorites from over the last 10 years.  I have been retired for 7 years now and although have been hospitalized with surgeries I still find time to sew... I think I have the disease that means you can't sit still - having a senior moment here and can't think of the name I am trying to say - not ADH because I have no problem focusing... but I do not sit still long... I have to be doing something and I get lost in my quilting - it makes me forget the world around me -

I absolutely love making quilts - whether it is making someone else's pattern for finding a way to use the fabric I have in my stash to produce a quilt that came into my head during the night...

Yes I live and breathe quilting...

DH lives and breathes pool - if I tell him there is a tournament in tim buck too - if he can go he will even if he has been complaining all day that he can't work around the house because his back or shoulder hurts...

So I understand where he is coming from - the aches just disappear - although they are real - they no longer bother you when you are doing something you love -

guess this was along response to how do I make so many quilts - but I absolutely love quilting...
