Merry Christmas everyone

Merry Christmas everyone
with the love of my life, George

What am I doing writing a blog?

Quilting is one of the few places in my life where all the corners meet and stay put. On this blog I plan to ruminate about quilting and life, the quilted life, cat and quilts, and any old thing that falls in and out of my brain. I'd be pleased to hear from you on all of this or any topic of interest!

and photos for the back - long on smiles!

I don't know about you but I love putting photos on the backs of quilts. It helps to complete the story the quilt tells, who lovingly made it, who was the loved one who received it. In this case, the quilt is for Wyatt and it is made by the team of Leiner and Newcomer, both nee Allmendinger, mother and daughter, cross-stitcher and quilter, Grandmother and Aunt Boo.

When we have all gone on to what comes after, someone will see this quilt back and recognize the love between the people it binds.

Another night of sewing. Almost finished with the back. Tomorrow, maybe, it will be ready to embroider! Gotta sleep now....



  1. Best Mother-in-law EVER!!! This quilt has brought a tear to my eye... Jamie want to be surprised when you come out... I am so glad I got a sneak peak. Thanks for posting for it. I can't believe that you have done so much- good thing George is a bike riding fool. This is AMAZING!!!! The back tells the story and I love what you wrote about it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  2. Jeff, now you are making me cry! It is turning out so wonderfully. I think you will all three be pleased. Will Jamie be too upset that
    I made the baby quilt first???? Talk to you soon. Love, M-i-L Ginnie
