1. Quilt Market 2018

    I just got back from Quilt Market and didn't take a single picture to share with you.  It is a working Market, albeit a fun one. But we stayed very busy and there wasn't much time to casually walk through the long rows of vendor booths. We had appointments to meet with about five different fabric vendors on Saturday. I also met with the people who make the wonderful emery boards that I give to cu…Read More

  2. Embroidery for Your Memory Quilts

    As mentioned in a previous post, I bought an embroidery machine this summer. I can now embroider names and labels for your quilts. Here are a couple of options that will be put in memory quilts. There are other sayings similar to the ones pictured, and I can change the wording to whatever you want it to be. Or if you have an image like the heart on the left that you would like put in your quilt, I…Read More

  3. Order Christmas Quilts Now…..Summer is Over!

    After a very long summer which kind of left me with the doldrums, we finally have some fall weather. It is only in the sixties here after being ninety yesterday. I'm always in a quilting mood, but the cooler weather just makes me even more into it. And with cooler weather, or even sometimes not cooler weather if you live in Texas, Christmas is not far behind.  I'm already booking for mid-November…Read More

  4. Quilts Are Made to Be Used

    My husband and I went to a book signing party yesterday at the home of one of his former co-workers.  I had given the couple a quilt when they got married and later the co-worker hired me to make a Crown Royal quilt for her husband. He had gray Crown Royal bags, so I wanted to make something different from my usual Crown Royal quilt pattern. I was very pleased when I saw the Crown Royal quilt on …Read More

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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

  9. 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
