Four Generations and Shirley Albertson Owens is in the second tier of the the Sandwich Generation

Mothers’ Day is almost here and it seems like a good time to reflect on mothers everywhere – what would we do without them? Mothers can get their title because of a biological link – or they can get their title because of a psychological and emotional link. Many mothers have human children and many mothers have pet children and SOME of us have both varieties. I wanted to feature SOME of my family mothers in my immediate branch of the family tree in honor of this special day of celebration.

I will start with my grandmothers who were so important to me. Grandma Albertson, my daddy’s mother, taught me to use a needle and a thimble.

Grandma Mary Alma Bankus Albertson with Grandpa J. B. Albertson Sr.

She taught me to hand piece my first quilt.  She cut out all of the pieces and set it together but I sewed the nine-patches together.

Grandma Eleanor Reiter, my mother’s stepmother, was my role model for successful aging.  She was young at heart, a square dancer, and a hiker.  I have great memories of having cookouts in the mountains in Colorado while we were visiting on family vacations.  Grandma Reiter was also a quilter and she designed and cut out some colorful hippos for me so that I could make a quilt!  Hippos were my favorite animal!  The photo is of me, Grandma Reiter, my mother, Marjorie Ruth Albertson, and my daughter, Christi Johnson Epps.

Karen DuMont took my grandma’s pattern of hippos and produced a pattern for sale – Grandma Reiter would have been so proud!

Grandma Mamie Elizabeth Hassler was my mother’s mother and I loved her dearly.  She taught me to embroider and play dominoes!  I thought that she invented chili macaroni and buttered crackers!  Here she is holding me as a baby.  I wish that I had more photos of her!

Here I am with my mother, Marjorie Ruth Albertson.  Oh my goodness, she was a great seamstress and a super cook – I think these skills must have escaped me, but the memories of her great dishes are engrained in my memory!  She was extremely generous and you had to be careful when you admired something that she had because she would probably just turn right around and give it to you!

 

Mother and me

Then there is me and my daughter, my daughter-in-love, and my daughters that I received as a gift from my husband.  All in all they have gifted me with 17 grandangels – how lucky am I!

First is Christi – my only biological daughter who gifted me with Leanna, Sarah, and Cooper Epps – my Virginian grandangels.

Next is my son’s wife and daughter-in-love, Lil who gifted me with FIVE Texan grandangels, Harry, William, Vincent, James, and Shirley Anne.

19 UFO’S from 2015 that SHOULD Get Finished in 2016

Posted By on January 1, 2016

Since it is January 1, 2016, the time is just right for resolutions. I am thinking that I would like to finish some of my UFO’s (UNFINISHED OBJECTS – AKA UNFINISHED QUILTS IN PROGRESS). So to make things easier, I made a list. (OK I did cheat a little bit because I do have a few more that are not on the list because I changed their category from UFO to “ABANDONED FOR NOW.”)  After looking over this list, it is once again apparent to me that I am a true Bonnie Hunter fan.  Almost everything on this list is a Bonnie Hunter design!

So for now, here are the UFO’s that made the list!

1     ALBERTSON PING PONG BALLS – this is actually Bonnie K. Hunter’s Bow Tie Challenge (see Quiltville.com if you would like to add this UFO to YOUR LIST!)  I made this with clothing that belonged to my parents – so it is a “MEMORY QUILT” and called ping pong balls because I come from a family of AVID ping pong players – and we often used ping pong balls the same color as the cheddar fabric!  When this is finished, it will belong to my son, Rob Johnson.  I feel pretty sure that this will get finished because it only needs the binding sewn on.

2     SCRAPPY GRANDMOTHER’S FLOWER GARDEN is my hexie project – but even though I like it, it has been on my UFO list for a couple of years.  I am going to make an effort to make progress on it this year!  I already have a stack of these flowers made so I just need to put it all together.

Scrappy Grandmother's Flower Garden

3     CATHERINE’S BASKETS has been a UFO for awhile now and I really should finish it – all of the blocks are made and it is a mostly red  quilt – which I really love.  It is named Catherine’s Baskets because my friend,  Catherine,  cut out the baskets with her special die!  I think the hang up for me on this one is that I don’t know how to put it together.

Catherine's Baskets

4     TALKING TURKEY is a Bonnie K. Hunter design – all read and white – and I love it.  The problem is that I do not like to bind and that is the only thing that I have left to do on it!  SO I AM MAKING THE COMMITMENT – I WILL GET THIS ONE DONE in 2016!  I put a photo of THE BONNIE and me here too –  as inspiration.  (This was taken at her Talking Turkey Workshop in April 2014 in Williamsburg, VA.)

5     STRATA STAR – this was started at Quilt Camp more than two years ago – and I just have to figure out how to quilt it.

6     STRIPPY HIDDEN STARS – another one that only needs binding……….  I made up this pattern.

7     WILD AND GOOSEY – another fun Bonnie Hunter pattern.  It is addictive to work on – I just got involved in too many other projects so it sits alone in a project box for now!

8     DON’T BE GOOSEY – is another WILD AND GOOSEY Bonnie Hunter pattern made using my parents’ clothing.  It is a memory quilt in progress.  My daddy used to say “Don’t be goosey” all of the time – so it seemed like a perfect name for a memory quilt.

Don't Be Goosey

9     ALBERTSON TUMBLERS – is another one of Bonnie’s Challenge Quilts (Tumblers to be made as leaders and enders) and I decided to do this challenge and used fabrics from my parents’ clothing. The top is close to being finished.

10     ALBERTSON LOZENGES – is another of Bonnie’s Challenge Quilts that I am making using my parents’ clothing….another memory quilt.  UNFORTUNATELY I HAVEN’T TAKEN A PHOTO OF THIS ONE YET!

11     ALBERTSON LOVE – yes – you guessed it – is another Bonnie Hunter design – basket weave that I made using my parents’ clothing.  It is a memory quilt in progress.

ALBERTSON LOVE

12 and 13     BIG SISTER – LITTLE SISTER FAIR AND SQUARE – are gifts for my new little niece, Elliott (who will be born in March) and her big sister, Camryn.  The back is minkee.  I can’t wait to give this to them!

I doubt if they would be reading my blog – but this is a surprise for both their mother and father – so I won’t post a photo here now.

14 and 15     ALLIETARE and CHRISTMAS ALLIETARE is Bonnie’s Quiltville Mystery 2015 and here are the first four blocks of each of these quilts.

16  CHRISTMAS BOXY STARS  is a Bonnie Hunter Boxy Stars Design made with my parents’ clothing.  It is a memory quilt for my nephew Andrew Albertson.  The top is finished but I need to make a back and get it quilted!

17 and 18 ALBERTSON STRING STARS 1 and ALBERTSON STRING STAR 2 – as far as I know, I made up this block – and I am not sure how I will set it together.  These will be two more memory quilts made from my parents’ clothing.

19    CHRISTMAS GRAND ILLUSION is my second Bonnie Huntery Quiltville Mystery 2014 – everything is made, it just needs to be sewn together.

SAO Quilts and other Projects Finished in 2009

Posted By on December 31, 2015

In 2007 I finished 17 quilts.  In 2008 I finished 19 quilts.  In 2009 I must have been completely crazy – it appears I made 34 quilts in 2009.  I find that almost unbelievable – but I was there and I have the photos, so it must be true!!!

Here we go, ta da, the Quilts of 2009

#1       The “LOST ON THE ROAD AGAIN” quilt was another one that was inspired by Bonnie K. Hunter.  It was the first of many future quilts that featured strings…yes strings of fabric!  This one was a gift to my grandangel, William Robert Blaine Johnson and this quilt lived in Lake Forest, California.  That was the last time that I saw the quilt – maybe it got lost on the road between California and Texas.  Pictured below is William with his quilt.

#2     The “THIMBLEBERRIES LAKESIDE QUILT 2008″ was one that made while a member of the Thimbleberries Club at Quilter’s Corner in Midlothian, Virginia.  Even though I started it in 2008, it was finished in 2009.  As a member of the club, we completed one portion of the quilt each month.   I gave this to my cousin, Janie Lynn gray to commemorate her 40th wedding anniversary.  She is pictured below with me holding the quilt.  This quilt is 102″ x 102″ and it was difficult to get a good photo of it!

#3     The”EGG MONEY” quilt was designed by Eleanor Burns.  (I included a photo of her with her book!)  I like this quilt and it is still in my possession, just waiting for a forever home!  This was my first quilt made with 1930’s fabrics.

#4      My “OLD VIRGINIA ROAD II QUILT” represents my third year of making Bonnie K. Hunter’s Quiltville Winter Mystery Quilts.  Bonnie named her quilt OLD TOBACCO ROAD and I named mine OLD VIRGINIA ROAD.  This is the SECOND one that I made from this mystery pattern.   This one was started in 2008 and was gifted to my nephew, Eric Albertson. for his high school graduation gift.  The quilt resides in Kansas City, Missouri.

#5     The “NEW YEAR’S EVE 2008 MYSTERY QUILT” was designed by Ann Smith.  It was gifted to Karen Murray, a fellow quilter, after she had brain surgery.  Catherine Etter provided the heart embellishments – so it was a team effort.  This quilt lives in Powhatan, Virginia.

#6     The “RAG QUILT” was a lot of fun to make and I quilted it as I made the squares.  So it is the first quilt that I made all on my own.  It is made with all flannel fabric and is quite comfy and warm.  My Grandangel Cooper fell in love with it – and threw himself upon it and declared it was his!  I believe his exact 5-year-old words were, “I LOVE IT, I am going to marry it.” It lives in Midlothian, Virginia!  His sister, Grandangel Sarah, has now claimed it as HERS!

Rag Quilt IMG_9104 IMG_9105

#7     The “MEMORIES IN MY CABIN” log cabin quilt was made with blocks that were a part of an online swap.  I donated it for cancer patients to use through my Colonial Piecemaker’s Quilt Guild in Williamsburg, Virginia.  I included a photo of my “scrappy back.”

June 29 2008 012 IMG_9040

#8       The “MODA PIECE AND PLENTY QUILT” was a mystery quilt started in 2008.  I was a member of a Moda Club at Quilter’s Corner.  Each month we made a different part of the quilt.   I learned a lot of techniques while working on this quilt.   I still have this quilt and it is waiting for its forever home.

#9     The “MAVERICK ANT STARS QUILT” was fun to make.    It is a Bonnie K. Hunter design. I still have this quilt waiting for its forever home.  I included a photo of the back of the quilt as well.

#10     The “SPLIT CHICKLET 9-PATCH” quilt is one of my favorites!  I gave it to my nephew, Andrew Albertson and he lives in Kansas.

#11     “QUILTERS CORNERS” is a block of the month (BOM) quilt designed by Susan Emory when she owned Quilter’s Corner Quilt Shop.  It was a graduation present for my grandangel Chasen Stark (pictured below with me.)  This quilt made its home in California.

#12     The “OLD VIRGINIA ROAD” quilt is my Quiltville 2008 Winter Mystery designed by Bonnie K. Hunter (hers was called OLD TOBACCO ROAD and I made two.)  This one has a bazillion flying geese around the border and I still have this one (waiting for its forever home.)  I love this quilt!  I do not THINK that I will ever make another quilt with flying geese borders, but WHO KNOWS.  I really like it!

OLD VIRGINIA ROAD IMG_4015 OTR BLOG BUTTON

#13     The “MOSAIC TILES” is a Christmas Mystery Quilt designed by Dorothy Young.  My Grandangel, Sarah Epps, claimed this one as hers.  She is a big fan of my quilts.  It is too bad that Sarah’s face was cut off when I downloaded this photo!

#14     The “FABRICOHOLICS ANONYMOUS”  Mystery Quilt is exactly the same as Bonnie K. Hunter’s STAR STRUCK.  This is a small 45 x 45 quilt that I donated to babies in the ICU.  I named it STAR STRUCK.

#15      The”STRIP TWIST” quilt was a Bonnie Hunter Super Bowl 2009 challenge (and the strip twist is one of Bonnie Hunter’s designs.)  I love this little quilt.  My grandangel, Cooper, had it on his bed for awhile, but now I have it as an extra throw on my bed.  It has been washed millions of times (since my cats seem like LOVE to shed on this!)

#16     The “BASKETS FULL OF GRANDANGELS” quilt was a Country Piecemaker’s Quilt Guild “If I were a Flower” challenge!  Each of the baskets hold flowers representing each of my grandangels.  I have this hanging on my wall!  The grandangels are from top left to top right…..Harry, Shirley Anne, William, Vincent, and James Johnson … Cooper, Leanna, and Sarah Epps.  Then bottom left to bottom right……Blake, Brittany, and Brent Owens….Brennan, Lacy, Chase,  Caden,  Jannae, and Collin.
