"QUILTS"



'Ask not what your fabric can do for you, but what you can do for your fabric."

"A bed without a quilt is like a sky without stars."

These are just gorgeous, BJ! I used to collect old quilts I would find at antique shops, unfortunately my kids loved to use them and dragged them all over the house until they were beyond repair. I should have just kept them on my quilt rack with a DO Not Touch sign! Yours definitely would make some very pretty cards!

XO,
Jane

Oh, this is so sweet!
Happy moving, my friend,
Blessings,

I LOVE quilts. I have one on my bed year round. I have a couple that are store bought, but my favorites are the ones I have that were made by my Grandmother and Great-Grandmother.
Your quilts are beautiful!

Lorrie said...

Such great photos of your gorgeous quilts. I like the sayings you put under them as well - especially the last one. Now that's sassy!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Your quilts are just beautiful and I love the quotes! I love quilts, too, but I'm afraid JCP makes mine! I do have one that my grandmother made that I treasure.

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Hi BJ,
I love your quilt...quilts are made with love for sure.
Its so fun playing with patterns and color while designing a quilt. You did a great job with yours.
I enjoyed your post very much. I adore home made quilts and yours is a treasure.
Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

What a perfect choice! I love quilts, and that quote at the end is funny.

True, though, huh?

Gorgeous quilt. What a work of love - and dedication!

Gayla said...

Your quilts are so pretty, and I loved the sayings... My love for quilts is a generational thing... Everyone in my family has made a quilt-- except me. Hmmmmm... What a cool retirement project!

LV said...

I have to be the world's greatest quilt lover. I have way too many,vintage and new. I do not sleep with them next to me. I have a blanket between. I am very protective of my quilts. Do not overdo it.

Beth said...

Your quilt note cards are beautiful!

Beverly said...

Those are note cards I would love. Gorgeous, BJ.

amy @ Life in Pink Hi-Tops said...

The quilt is beautiful. The quotes are awesome. Love it all!

Patty Patterson said...

Pretty quilts. I just love quilts. Especially the kind that were made by an ancestor with scraps from dresses I recognize. They seem to tell a story bring back fond memories.

Pamela Gordon said...

BJ, I love these quilt notecards. They are beautiful! Pamela

NanaDiana said...

LOL- No wonder none of my family ever needed Prozac-they were busy quilting. I recognize several of those old fabrics. Your photos are gorgeous and would make beautiful cards- xo Diana

On Crooked Creek said...

BJ,
Nothing is more comforting than to snuggle under a thick comforter (quilt) and take a little nap!!!
Gorgeous photos!!!
Fondly,
Pat

Tanya Rachelle said...

To sleep under a handmade quilt definitely is divine! There really is a different comfort feeling!Beautiful post.

Irene said...

BJ: I just love your quilt and those are some cute quilt sayings. Your quilt blog reminded me that I have a quilt I would like to use.

I have a quilt problem, hope you can help me. I inherited a quilt that my mother had won in a raffle. It is a beautiful quilt that mom used on her bed. Unfortunately she stained it with her blood when she was dying of pancreatic cancer. That was ten years ago. I would like to use it but have no idea how to clean it. My question is "How do I get ten year old blood stain out of the quilt?"

Hope you or one of your blog friends can help. I would love to post mom's quilt in my blog once it is clean and free of blood.

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Oh BJ what a beautiful quilt. The fabric is great - have some of the same fabric. I just love quilts. I gave my neighbor tons of material as I had a fabric store here at my house and was decluttering. Barbara makes lap quilts for the veterans hospital or seniors so I thought she would use the material - and she does. She has a quilting machine.

I was in the hospital and iI got out she gave me a beautiful quilt for my bedroom that she had made from my material.

But I really like yours a lot!
Hugs
Mary

Stacy said...

I am so very lucky to have the quilts made by Grandmother and you! I'll love them forever! (and you know i will! haha)

Jeanne said...

Just dropped in from the note card party. I love your quilts. I have a couple of old store bought ones that are falling apart. I wish I had your talent!!

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME/Doublewide Decor said...

I just love you BJ.....you really have my type of humor....I love quilts, I can't quilt...but, maybe I should learn.

craftyles said...

Beautiful quilt pictures and thoughts. Love this post. SO funny-I did a quilt post this week too. Great minds think alike!

Vee said...

The quotes are perfect and I believe them all. (Except for the last one...I'd need prozac if I did too much quilting.) What a wonderful idea for note cards! Thanks for participating even in the middle of all that's going on in your world.

Kathleen Grace said...

I love your quilts! As you know I have just discovered quilting in the past year or two and I just love how pretty they make a bed look. So many colors and styles to choose from, I have a bunch in various stages of completion! Seeing your gorgeous 9 patch makes me want to make one just like it:>)

Donna said...

Those quilts are great! You must have an extensive collection!

Diane Jordan said...

I like quilts--these would make great note cards! I especially like that last one.

Mountain Mama said...

Beautiful. They would make great note cards.
I have done some quilting and love it. I have several in the making right now and need to get them finished. Just so much else to do and quilting is such a messy hobby!
