1. My Retreat Quilts

    I shared a couple of my friends' retreat quilts last week, so I thought I would share a couple that I pieced at Quilter's Cabin. The one on the left will probably be donated to West Houston Quilter's Guild for a charity quilt. Our guild regularly donates quilts to Project Linus and to nursing homes. The one on the right does not have the borders attached, but it is going to be a wedding gift for m…Read More

  2. Sharon’s Quilt Retreat

    Because I really felt the need for one more retreat per year (two just aren't enough), I scheduled a retreat for this week at Quilter's Cabin and invited ten of my favorite quilters.  There were only six of us including myself who were able to come, but we had a great time. Jody, my best friend of over 40 years, won the imaginary prize for most prolific quilt piecer. She got several put together…Read More

  3. A Quilt for Myself…..Finally

    After Hurricane Harvey, we were forced to remodel our house whether it needed it before Harvey or not. Actually, it did need some updating. We had our house repaired and redecorated in record time, but it took a while to get a new quilt made for our master bedroom. I finally got it finished and on the bed. Now it's back to quilting customer quilts and making t-shirt quilts. If you would like one f…Read More

  4. Happy T-Shirt Quilt Customers

    Happy customers make me happy. It's always nice to receive a thank you note from customers to whom I ship quilts since I don't get to show them their quilts in person. I got the following today: "Dear Sharon,  I just wanted to let you know that I am well pleased with the quilt.  My granddaughter  was too.  She really liked the colors between the rows.  She just turned 13.  We both wanted to …Read More

  5. Another Wedding, Another Quilt

    One of our great-nieces got married Friday night and of course it was an occasion for me to make another quilt. This particular great-niece has three younger sisters and six younger female cousins, so there will be plenty more to make in the future. And I have another niece getting married in October, so I've started working on a quilt for her. I love making special quilts along with all the t-shi…Read More

  6. Embroidery for Your Quilt

    I recently bought an embroidery machine so I no longer have to send out embroidery to be done. Sometimes customers want names and dates or other lettering embroidered in a square or in the top or bottom border and I can offer that service in-house now. My set-up price is $15 and that includes up to 15 letters or numerals. Then it is 50¢ per letter after that.I have a very large collection of font…Read More

  7. More Charis House Quilts

    While at retreat a couple of weeks ago, I pieced a couple more quilts for Charis House so I could get them quilted on my longarm to take to Pensacola last week. My friend Betty also pieced a quilt for them. I was able to get all three quilted to take to my sister for her to bind before presenting them to the ladies at Charis House. They are so appreciative of the quilts and it is a joy to make the…Read More

  8. Retreat Fun

    I just got back from a retreat at Quilter's Cabin in Tomball a couple of weeks ago and even though there were only four of us, we accomplished a lot. We worked on some charity quilts as well as quilts for ourselves. I made the quilt on the left for my bedroom. Here are a few pictures. We don't exactly fix our hair and dress up at retreat, but I think I managed to get pictures of everyone in regula…Read More

  9. Happy Graduate with Her New T-Shirt Quilt

    It's always fun when my customers post pictures on Facebook or send me photos of their graduate receiving his or her quilt. Here's a happy graduate from Ohio. My husband and I once owned a hardware store and this particular graduate's great-grandfather worked for us. He has since passed, but I was thrilled when her mom contacted me to make this quilt. I'm so glad she loves it. If you missed out on…Read More
