A Gorgeous Heritage Quilt

 Hello Everyone,

I love to receive emails and pictures from quilters around the country who've made my patterns.  When I opened this email from Dena in Wisconsin, my jaw dropped, and I uttered an audible gasp.  This is her gorgeous creation of my Heritage pattern.  


Here's Dena's email:
I just wanted to say thank you for this beautiful quilt pattern!  It was very easy to follow.  It is the first quilt I have finished and kept for myself!  I tend to make quilts and give them as gifts.  Some I have gotten very attached to, but I would never have been able to give this one away!  The colors were picked by my husband and I together.  I made it approximately 100" x 100", and hand quilted the entire top in between other projects.  It was on my frame for nearly 3 years!  I have received so many compliments!


Well, I couldn't give this quilt away....ever.  Take a close look at her incredible hand quilting.  This level of detailed quilting would be hard to do on a long arm.


I'm not a bit surprised that she has received many compliments on this show stopping heirloom quilt.


I love to see my patterns made in different colors.  The selection of batiks is just perfect for this design.

Thank you so much Dena for sending me the pictures.

On another note, I've been receiving emails asking if everything is okay since I've been so quiet over the past few weeks. I do appreciate your concern.  I've been doing a lot of secret sewing, pattern writing, and shop guide writing for the block of the month for Marcus Fabrics.  Just as soon as I can show you what I'm working on, I will.

I'm also trying to establish some balance in my life, and spend more quality time with Mr. Joe and Mazey.  We still go on our daily walks and stay out a bit longer than usual.  Sometimes the walls of my sewing room start to close in on me, and I need to step away from the machine.

While I've been doing so much sewing, I've been listening to Podcasts.  My favorite podcasts are American History Tellers and History That Doesn't Suck. I was always a good student, but I'm surprised at how much information I didn't retain.  The two podcasts refresh my failing memory...I do have a lot of tree rings at this age! The narrators make history interesting through their storytelling format. 

So I'm off to my sewing room for the day after I fill my Etsy orders.  The orders have top priority every single morning. 

Soon,
Lynn

    1. Is was starting to warm up.....but snow is in the forecast beginning on Sunday. They say Winter isn't over until there's snow on the Dogwoods. The Dogwoods are slow to come out this year, so who knows?

  7. Fabulous pattern = fabulous quilt! Plain & simple. Great job to both of you. Laughed at how you say you didn't retain your bygone history lessons. My brother tells me that the history we learned in school is different than the history taught in the schools today. Maybe it's not your "tree rings" but the forest has changed? Hahaha!

    1. Thank you for the compliment! This was not a fabric line. I just visited my local Quilt shops until I found all the fabrics I needed. I think I may have gotten at least one of the fabrics online.

  19. So glad I have this pattern, Lynn - I just saw the Quiltmania photos of the Indepence Hall Quilters raffle quilt. I think definitely THAT set of fabrics and colors is my favorite. You taught classes so I'm wondering if you remember the fabrics used in that version? I'm hoping so but I know it was 2 years ago. Thanks!
