ALMOST OVER

The closet is beginning to be empty. At least of quilt tops. I am now able to get to other things that need sorting through. If I am not using some of the assorted tools, pencils, etc., I am going to donate them to a thrift shop (one that uses volunteers for workers and uses their funds to help the down and out people). There are craft items that need to go also. I already pulled out a bunch of purse handles and donated those. And wool yarn that can be used for felted purses. I made a couple and my interest has waned in doing more. Who knows what else is in there!

Today, I am showing you quilt tops that I have posted before. I am being fair and posting them as they were in the closet. This way, I will have a record of everything and can keep track of what gets finished, etc.


Many of you previously commented on the Patchwork Garden quilt that was made from a Jan Patek pattern. I really like this one and received many very nice comments from the visitors to the blog.
I need to get the log cabin quilt finished soon as it is a favorite of mine.
The basket quilt was fun to make. Many of the baskets were made from a layer cake. I had a few fat quarters I had purchased before the layer cake. Then I purchased enough fabric for the strips and border. The setting triangles was from stash fabric.
The Pokeberry quilt is also a Jan Patek pattern. Lots and lots of berries on this one.
This is a quilt made from the pattern "Night Flight". Mary, this is the one I e-mailed you about. The photo is a bit fuzzy. I must have moved as I clicked the camera button.

I have the last of the quilt tops pulled out of the closet. One more post should finish them up. Then I guess I will have to do the dreaded count. Stop back for a final look at the contents of the mystery closet.

  1. Each quilt that comes out of that "never ending closet" just gets better and better! I'm truly blown away by your fantastic work, color and fabric choice and love them all! I'm going to hate to see the show end...sounds like we are nearing the end.

  5. I love your log cabin quilt. Is that hand or machine quilting in the picture on your blog header? I have enjoyed seeing the treasures from your closet. I think I will go investigate my own collection of unfinished tops. Mine are in boxes so I'll have to do some pressing before they are ready for the public.

  28. I found your blog thru Quilty Cat. I love the quilt show you have going on here! You have been very prolific! I love them all, but I think my favorite quilts are the Patchwork Garden and the plaid houses. I love plaids and houses, so that one is extra good! Good luck with your closet cleaning and quilt finishing!

  31. Wow! Your quilts are just amazing! Keep the pictures coming! The quilt piece you commented on in my shop is from a REALLY old quilt and we have the picture of the old log cabin it came from. The backing is made from old feed sacks. I just love it! Thanks for visiting, Dawn

  32. Karen, Thank you so much for making a comment on my blog. I am glad that you did because now I've found your blog and can drool over your fabulous quilts! Quilting is a passion also (there are some in my blog dated sometime in March). I'm kind of a back and forth person (between quilting and cross stitching) but the quilting bug has been calling lately and as soon as I get my sewing room shaped up, I'll be back to it. I'm fond of Jan's quilts too - there is just something about them. Anyway, I'll definitely be back for more eye candy with your beautiful quilts.
