SAO Quilts and other Projects Finished in 2011

Posted By on August 14, 2016

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 slowed down a little and ONLY made 27 in 2010…..and here is the total for 2011 – 27 plus lots of other projects!

 

SAO QUILTS MADE IN 2011

#1     GRANDMOTHER’S FLOWER GARDEN  (64 x 74).  I learned to do English Paper Piecing from Claudette Adams and a revised version later by Sheddy Reese.  This was going to be for my mother, but she died before I got it finished….so I have this quilt – quilted by Sara Parrish.

#23     MARJORIE’S PUMPKIN PATCH was a two-color crayon challenge at the Colonial Piecemaker’s Quilt Guild, in Williamsburg, VA.    I blindly picked orange and white (and was not overly thrilled because orange was my least favorite color – however, it WAS my mother, Marjorie Albertson’s favorite color) so I made the quilt in honor of her.

    Hi Shirley, I see that we are both hanging in there – way to Go for us!,, I am trying to get the Summer Jewels pattern and Augusta does not offer it for sale on her site. Caden’sGreen Bay guilt looks so good that I wanted to make a Bronco quilt for grandson in Denver. Please advise if you know of a resource. Judy C
