"Great quilt! I know you must be so proud of your son. My son will graduate soon...he's going to be a paramedic. Trying to think of a quilt to make but he only likes applique so at least I'll know what style I'll be doing :)"

Profile Information

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I always wanted to make a quilt out of my son's baby clothes for their wedding presents. They are now in their 30's (and single still), so I thought I should learn how to quilt!

Crafts have always interested me - hooked rugs, crewel embroidery, and I am an avid rubber stamper. My husband says my homemade greeting cards are about $80 each! LOL!

On a personal note, I am a Christian and very involved in my church; am a Stephen Leader; work at a local church part-time; sing in two choirs, and absolutely LOVE my free time!
How many quilts have you made?
10, two were collaborations
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
Make!
How long have you been a quilter?
Started in 2011 with the purchase of a new Baby Lock (Grace)
What is your favorite quilting technique?
Too new to say! Learning Machine Applique and loving it!
Why do you quilt?
To create and share my creations with others. I have given them all away!
Do you have a website?

Rachel's Quilt: "Geo-Me"

Posted on July 19, 2013 at 4:00pm 1 Comment

YES!  It is done (the quilt top)!



I am absolutely in love with this quilt, even though matching those rows was the most challenging thing I have done so far in quilting.

The back will be steel grey with strips of pink, broken up with patches of these squares - hard to explain, I will just have to post a picture when I get it done.  I am sure if she doesn't like it (she will, though) her mama will be glad to have it to snuggle in this winter!

I am…

There's a Doctor in the House!

I've been consumed with my son's graduation from Life University, Marietta GA.  He's now a doctor of chiropractic!  A quick trip to GA for his graduation in June, including a pizza party for his peers, and now we will have a dinner party here in Michigan with relatives and close friends, followed by a reception for his peers he grew up with in MI.

In the meantime, I've been frantically trying to find a few minutes here and there to attach the binding to his quilt that I made in honor…

Actually, it's been finished since May and is at Vickie's now, waiting to be quilted. Here's how the top turned out:

Well, that's sideways, but it will do.  I changed out those deeper colored filler blocks and am very, VERY, happy I did!  (See earlier posts.)

The backing is one big piece of…

Oh, am I in trouble! 

Everything I should be doing is not getting done, because I fell in love with a quilt pattern from Moda's Bake Shop and have been cutting and sewing into the wee hours of the night!  Find out more at my blog:  http://1eyeridgequilts.wordpress.com/…

well...hmmm..i dunno. after being w/o a full time job (except for my "forever" job...my house & acreage) for a number of years. i think i would welcome the opportunity to be back in the workplace again. hubby & i were taling about this a few sunday mornings ago, i miss the cameraderie, the mental stimulation, all the stimuli that i don't get here, hauling rock or dirt. digging holes or trenches, cutting brush yada yada yada....plus a job would pay better! lollollollol!!

so...i think congrats are in order. and i so, extend them to you.

..and another nice thing about a job ...paychecks... money
..i like to eat!

hi,,,ipad acting up...on my way to bed. read the note earlier re: the ladder stitch info i had posted. had posted links etc to online stuff month or more ago. was thinking i would do a discussion thingy here in this group, then it will be eaaier to find. i have pics fr web i will post also.ot is now on tomorrows to-do list...on pc...this ipad drives me nuts ...lollollol!!

oh my!! DON'T!! check up o me...lollol....me & the puppy just woke up fr long afternoon nap lollollol..so hot out yesterday i feel like i may work one day sleep the nxt thru the rest of the summer at this rate. i am sure that there are many out there this year who can relate..the heat just drains one so. had thought to stay in today & finish up one thing st stitching on another, got most of my applique pieces cut out lst wkwnd, and they are still sitting untouched in a baggie!! lollol i know what you mean though about moda. thier colors are so pure and true..fabric perfect wt too, i think. long time fan of moda. i like red rooster and some of the others but i will ck moda before i ck others. but that is probably, too, why your quilt just basically grabbed my attention so. at any rate..i feel that my commentsare justified. there needs to be an innate feel for the ability to combine colors. i was told early on by a q bk author that saw one of my amish style quilts that i have a good eye for color. dunno..but i so know what i like..and i will shamelessly blurt it out on a public forum w/o the least blush!! lollol

i know! (she says blushing & grinning...)..wandered around a bit this am & yesterday, reading posts and catching up w what's been happenin' in here while i am out picking fruit, batting mosquitos...need to spray again the bad guys are out now..the ones that carry west nile virus. they found a couple of horses positive for it last year and a few birds last few years, & since viruses & i don't get along (immune dysfunction syndrome :(( ..) i need to spray the little ...er...big buggers lollol..but..yesterday i saw ....drum roll...the eclectic!!... i LOVE it!! it is so beautiful wonderfully happy! and why wouldn't she love it!?! & besides quilts that are made with love for loved ones have a special glow...ergo all who see them love them..self perpetuating :)). thanks for letting me know..was going to send a note later in week when i have some time on here. really really hot out there today, out a little too long in it trying to finish a little want to do project...didn't :(( .. so up a little late, for me, playing here, appt tomorrow am then home & in to sew....?finish my little monkey doll?? that would be cool...start my applique border...cooler...but not outside..will prob top 100..so in and play!

...again..thanks for the note..that quilt is just too wonderful for words.

learn...thats what it's all about. i take pics of my process as i go along. yrs ago i read that when putting wip up on design wall...or bed top lollol .. look at it thru cam lens...helps w determining value placement..and for correcting if needs. i found it to bee really helpful idea when working with a variety of colors and prints. not sure, but when you said the name of the pattern it sounded familiar, it came fr a mag, right? i think i saw it, was unimpressed & prob didn't keep it! lollol but your fab chouces gave the pattern a definite wow! factor. please do take and post pics of front and back! esp after your description of the back. and by all means, if your niece wants to be in the pic too...great!! also i bet she would love to have a pic of her standing with the brand new version of a quilt that she is sure to treasure for years to come..hey it's a memory..one she can look at and say "yup..it was a lot brighter back then, but i still love it!"

have a good one ...

whew! is right. we are to hit the triple digits by end of week. we, fortunately, don't have the humidity that you do in the midwest, or even on the east coast. we have lived in a few places in usa...i love the great lakes region. those lakes just amazed me each rime we passed thru or wandered a bit in that area during our travels between jobs.

i will ck back in a week! lollol...but won't hold you to it...the photo out by the lake. in our travels we several times took our little "detours" thru  upper michigan, w stops at mckinaugh island ...hmmm not a speller tonight...but you get my drift. 

but in meantime my nxt visit to mqp i will be going for a tour thru the quilts you have posted. again. take care...

was ready to post this last night but the connection dropped, found that i am not a speller today either!! lollol too hot hot hot!!
