I love the quilt.

Connie said...

This reminds me of the tiny squares my mother use to quilt. It was so much work in the old days when the stitching was all done by hand.

Polly said...

Great light! (The quilt is lovely too.) ;)

Tracy said...

If I were Daisy I wouldn't leave the room....that quilt is absolutely stunning, beautiful, breathtaking.

I love it.

As beautiful as a spring afternoon.

My word, woman - you are a marvel!

Kathryn said...

I would frame the picture, the quilt, the poof, the sweet feet! Precious!

Molly said...

You have thoroughly, completely motivated me to make a quilt like this! I've never been a quilt-ish person, but yours are just lovely!

I have a quilt top that's been sitting around for ages because I don't know how to put it together, mostly bind it. I hope you'll consider doing a binding tutorial one of these days!

Wow! You are really on a row with these beautiful quilts! Thank you for sharing!

Melissa said...

Stunning! And the whole effect in the photo is just beautiful.

Seeing this makes me want to make a quilt! Lovely.

Linda said...

You've found the perfect spot for that sweet quilt. Of course the finishing touch is the darling little girl in her poofy dress. These are the moments the nest seems awfully empty around here.

Kimmie said...

So soft and girlie. I love it and am trying to not be jealous...you are so talented.

I love your quilt...praying she has many sweet dreams under its weight.

Your quilts have been such an inspiration to me!! I have had scraps of fabric in a pile waiting for me to put together...but they just sit there.
Seeing these is encouraging to me.
Thanks. :)

It's perfect! I love all the muted pastels together. It's fun and feminine without being fussy.

Well, I started cutting some of my mother's old blouses today, but a couple were more worn than I'd supposed - this is going to take a while. It's a tedious business that you manage to give an aura of romance to! :)

Anna said...

Lisa, I agree that the cutting is the most tedious--I do it all with scissors, though my sweet neighbor has offered the loan of her rotary cutter. Just haven't gotten organized and gotten it. For my last top I cut 1080 squares, mostly in one day! The children all helped me piece it and we did it in about an hour. The fabric was flying, believe me!

Lisateresa said...

Anna, thank you for the extra info - I was looking at my little squares, thinking "how am I going to know how many to cut?" - now I have some notion of it! LOL! I'll keep pluggin' away.

Sarah Boyd said...

Your quilts are amazing! I can't believe how fast you finish them and how well they are designed! Very inspiring! What kind of quilt batting do you use?

Sarah Boyd said...

A few more questions. What size are your quilt squares and how big is your finished quilt? twin size? I'm very inspired and am planning on making one! :)

Amy said...

Poufy dresses - a girl's delight! The quilt is gorgeous as well.
