1. Round Robin and Other Retreat Quilts

    At our recent retreat, our bee members presented our "elder stateswoman" with a Round Robin quilt. Shirley had given us the center medallion a couple of months ago and asked us to complete it for her. Each of us took a turn at adding pieced borders to the quilt and she did not see it until it was completed. Shirley was absolutely thrilled with the result and we were pretty pleased with ourselves, …Read More

  2. Quilting with My Sisters

    I seem to be on a family theme the last few blog posts, and yet, I have one more. My sisters and I take a "Sister Trip" every year and last weekend we went to Dallas for the Dallas Quilt Guild Quilt Show.  They apparently have a big active membership because their show is the biggest guild show that I have ever attended. And they have it every year in early March. My own guild as well as several …Read More

  3. Another Quilt for Camp Hope

Carol Thelen, the founder of Quilts for Camp Hope, spoke at the West Houston Quilter's Guild last week, so I got to grab a picture of her with a Camp Hope Quilt on the lectern. I also took her another quilt that I finished recently. As mentioned in a prior blog post, Camp Hope is a residential facility run by the PTSD Foundation of…Read More

Carol is the founder of Quilts for Camp Hope. As I've mentioned in previous posts, Camp Hope is a treatment facility for military veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, commonly known as PTSD…Read More

  5. Quilts for Causes

    As I mentioned in a previous post, quilters love to make donation quilts to give for worthy causes.  When I'm not working on t-shirt quilts for customers, I'm either making a quilt for myself or for a gift or to donate.  I just finished making a couple more donation quilts.  I made a patriotic one to give to Quilts for Camp Hope for a soldier who is being treated for Post Traumatic Stress Disor…Read More

  6. Quilt for Camp Hope

    Quilters are caring, giving people. We love to make quilts and we love to give them to others, especially in a time of need. Quilters tend to think that a quilt will always make somebody feel better. I made quilts for my sister and my sister-in-law when they were undergoing treatment for breast cancer. I recently sent a quilt to a friend in Georgia who is currently on chemo and radiation. The reci…Read More
