I Just Wanted To Say...

What is your problem?

Location: Georgia, United States

I am me. More than I was, less than I will be. This is difficult. Facts-female, southern, mother and grandmother. Abstract-a Christian, a loner, intelligent, somewhat arrogant, impatient with stupidity, an unusual sense of humor.



And a couple more quilts.

The quilt on the left is called "Piggy Banks" ( 48' x 60"). Another big favorite of my grandchildren. The eyes are embroidered and the tails are three-dimensional curliques that are appliqued onto the pig. The close-up shows a busted up bank with the coins falling out.
Frogs in a Pond (40" x 56") is the one on the right and was made for my grandson, who is still less than a year old. He is absolutely fascinated with the frogs and will try endlessly to pick them up.

Your piggy bank quilt is fabulous! I've thought about taking up quilting eventually. Is this a standard pattern, or did you make it up?

Thanks. The Piggy Bank quilt is my own design. I saw a similar pig in a book, thought it was really cute, copied it as best I could and enlarged it to a size I could put on a 12x15" square of fabric. This is one of my "happy" quilts. Just looking at it makes me smile.
I hope you do take it up one day. Quilting is a great hobby and for me, provides a creative outlet. I've been doing this for almost twenty years. I learned using the standard patterns, and then once i learned the basics, began to design my own. The Frogs in a Pond quilt and the Window quilt are not standard patterns, either.
