Welcome to my journey

I design art quilts, table runners, table toppers, mug rugs, place mats, wall hangings, and quilts and sell them on Etsy. I sew from chosen patterns and well as create unique patterns for custom and commission work.

Thank-you for honoring my Memorial Day Quilt in the above Etsy Treasuries and Blogspot.

american fabrics

for those who liked my Memorial Day quilt on blogger, facebook and etsy, I saw some of the fabrics for sale on equilter.com. I'm sure you can buy them many other places (and I am not an advertisment for equilter), but thought I'd pass along one source. If you type in flag or americana or fourth of july in fabric websites you will probably find them there, too.

See my Momorial Day quilt.

lily pad in a pond

My mom made a quilt with this pattern many years ago. I put it up on etsy and it sold almost immediately. I made three more with entirely different fabrics than the ones my mom used. An example is below. If you like it you can go to http://www.etsy.com/shop/GrammiesInspirations to see a other photographs of this and a similar wall hanging that has two flowers in it.

My dad was in World War II, my brother in Viet Nam. Where I grew up in Vermont, there was a Memoiral Day parade ever year. I was either in the band or my Girl Scout troop. There was a service on the town common and I remember taps and Flanders Field where the poppies grow. I have always had a love for my country and the freedoms it provides me. I made this quilt with those values in mind and pray that we do not give them up to lesser values that slowly eat away at those freedoms.
