Quilts In The Closet

Just take a quick look at Pinterest and you will see a lot of Pins about cleaning everything in the house and even making a journal about.  Sorry if I offend anyone, but is there a bigger waste of time than making a housecleaning journal?  Anyway, I got off track............ moving my sewing room forced me to do some sewing room cleaning (forget the rest of the house), and I found some quilts.

I'm calling this one Blackbird Pie and I made it at least 3 years ago but never had it quilted.  It's now quilted, bound, had its picture taken and can go back in the closet.

This is a Blackbird Designs pattern and I can't remember its name.  Again, made 3 or 4 years ago and just quilted and finished a few weeks ago.  Already in the closet.

As I look at these two quilts it's obvious that I love red, and I think they mark a time when my style was changing from dark primitive colors and designs to the brights that I love now. Or as I sometimes refer to it, leaving the dark side to see the light.


  1. Both are beautiful quilts. Seems our taste in colors sort of follows the new and fabulous colorways.

  2. I did the same thing. I still love the primitive, dark look but I can't make myself make anything in dark fabrics. I just use the light, bright fabrics now. Your quilts are both beautiful! XO
