Over the weekend I was reading some of my older blog posts. Did you know I started blogging in 2004? Some of the quilts, mostly the ones I gave away, I had almost forgotten about. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, this will be a boring post so you’re free to leave now if you choose! 🙂
Of all the teachers Chad had all through school, Mrs. Orgeron was probably our favorite. Chad loved her and I really loved her. This is the quilt made for her and . . it’s hand quilted! I surely didn’t do many of those. It’s from the book, Collectibles, by Wendy Etzel. That’s Chad in the picture with Mrs. Orgeron.
This quilt is one of my favorites. It’s from a magazine and I saved the pattern and would love to make one for a future grandchild. It was made for Chad’s 7th grade math teacher who was having a baby.
Another one made for a teacher about that same time. Are you sitting down? I hand appliqued all these sunbonnet cats! It’s from the book, It’s Raining Cats & Dogs by Janet Kime.
This was a fun quilt too. It was made using one of Bonnie Hunter‘s patterns. It was given to southern Indiana tornado victims in 2005.
My uncle’s grandson was killed in a car accident and I made this quilt for Uncle James.
He had owned a Gulf gas station for years and I found this fabric for th backing.
This is a quilt I made for a deputy’s wife in Lake Charles. When Hurricane Rita hit there, her husband was injured and she went into premature labor and was transported out of town. I didn’t know them but heard their story on the news or read it online. I made this quilt for the wife.
And this quilt for the baby.
It happens that the lady worked at a law firm and I knew some of the paralegals in the law firm so I was able to send the quilts to them and they got them to the lady and the baby. Guess I should’ve made a quilt for the deputy since he was the one injured!
OK . . those are the quilts I found reading my blog in 2004 and 2005. Hope you enjoyed the little “show”.
