Quilts for Pam and Rachel

A couple years ago, my cousins asked me if I would help them out by finishing some quilt tops that my Great-Aunt Jo had started before she passed away. I was honored to do it. Isn’t this a lovely stack of finished quilts? First up was a set of embroidered blocks that Aunt Jo had […]

A Trunk Show by Julee Prose

Last night at our guild meeting we were treated to a trunk show by Julee Prose. If you’re familiar with Julee’s work, you know she does some really spectacular hand appliqué, which is right up my alley! Her trunk show did not disappoint! I asked her permission to post a few pictures of some of […]

Baby Baby!

Baby Baby!

I have another new pattern out! This one is called “Baby Baby!”, and it’s a very quick and easy baby quilt that you can personalize with a bit of easy appliqué. There are two versions, and I’m calling them the Girl version and the Boy version, altho they’re completely interchangeable. And you can also choose […]

Reworking Vintage

Reworking Vintage

I have quite a collection of vintage quilt tops and vintage orphan blocks. One of my favorite quilting pastimes is reworking them into new finished quilts. I don’t get to spend as much time at it as I’d like, but every now and then, I put in some effort on it. I’m teaching at Arrow […]

2018 Mystery Quilt Reveal

Our guild’s mystery quilt from last year went over so well, they wanted to do another one this year. So my sister and I once again hosted a mystery quilt for the Pecan Valley Quilt Guild members over the last few months. I finished my binding 2 hours before the meeting, in my usual style. […]

This Week

We’re past Hump Day already, and I don’t feel like I’ve done one single productive thing yet this week. Fortunately, I was at my guild’s spring retreat last weekend at Sew Sweet Quilt Shop’s fabulous retreat center, where I did move a few projects forward with some uninterrupted sewing time. We got to watch the […]

Starting and Finishing

Starting and Finishing

It appears that for every quilt I finish (even if it’s for a customer), I start another one — or two! I’m sure none of you ever do that, do you? Last fall when I went on a road trip to a quilt show with my pal, Linda, we went to a JoAnn’s store, which […]

QuiltCon 2018

The Modern Quilt Guild’s annual quilt show, QuiltCon, is going on right now in Pasadena, CA. Since I was just in California over Thanksgiving, I opted not to go back again this soon, and as it turns out, that’s a good thing, since I have these two to bottle feed and entertain every few hours. […]

Imogene’s Vintage Quilt

Posted on February 12, 2018 by prairiemoonquilts in Longarm Quilting, Quilts
Imogene’s Vintage Quilt

Last summer, I worked on restoring a vintage quilt top for my friend, Imogene. This quilt was made by Imogene’s great-aunt, Emma Salyer (Mrs. James Salyer), when she was young, and Aunt Emma gave it to Imogene as an unquilted top. Imogene says she’s reasonably sure the quilt is at least 100 years old! Over […]
