Grow Your Blog

Vicki is hosting
Grow Your Blog
 
A great way to find new friends.
I would love to have new followers and
find blogs that I never knew about before.
Thanks Vicki.
 
Welcome to my blog, 
I dew quilting,
my name is Diane
and I love quilting.

I made my first quilt top in 1994
(wow that seems like forever ago)
I have learned, I have grown and love everything about
quilting (except maybe binding).
I make traditional and modern quilts.

  I have now found a new love...
I have fallen in love with longarm quilting.
I bought my first machine in 2011 or 2012.
I didn't use it a lot.  I couldn't quilt the way I wanted to
so I just didn't use it very much.
Then I discovered the Internet and books and rulers and teachers.
Bloggers that shared their beautiful quilting and even showed and explained how they did what they did.
I sold my first machine
 and I bought a APQS Millie last year.
Millie and I get along great. 
 
I make Memory quilts for family and friends
 (even a few for strangers)
 
This one was for a friend at work, whose parents passed on within
6 months of each other.  It was made out of their clothing.
Mother and father stars surrounded by nine stars, one for each of their children.  I quilted each of their names, dates and symbols of
their life together.
 
Then I made one for his son 
 and his daughter.
 The children's had 23 quilted pinwheels, one for each of the grandchildren.
 
 
More pictures here Jimmy's Memory quilt http://dewquilting.blogspot.com/2013/12/jimmys-memory-quilt.html
and
here Details, details http://dewquilting.blogspot.com/2013/12/i-dont-have-anything-new-to-show.html
(because I love pictures)
My favorite quilt this past year
has to be the one I made for my son's shop.
http://dewquilting.blogspot.com/2013/10/iq-quilt.html
 

 
He loved it.
 
It was so much fun to make,
inspired by a quilt made by
Lisa Snipes
I love the way it finished.
Even won a 1st place ribbon in a local quilt show.

Another one of my favorites is one I made for myself.


A wall hanging
for myself.
I drafted everything and free hand quilted it with Millie's help.

I make t-shirt quilts.

Wedding quilts.



Well that's a little of what I do, in addition to quilting
I work a full time job, married, have an incredible 11 year old son with Down syndrome and an older son mentioned above.


I don't post everyday, gosh I might not post every week but I do share my quilting and hope you see something that will bring you back again.

Now let's have some fun. 
 Let's have a giveaway!!
 
I have a Scrap Basket Surprises Quilt Club Kit.
You can make anything you like
or use the quilt on page 44 of
the Scrap Basket Surprises book.
This kit includes:
two Fresh Cotton Jelly Rolls by Fig Tree Quilts
1 3/8 yards background
5/8 yard binding
and
3 3/4 yards of Fresh Cotton for the backing.


I bought this kit from the Fat Quarter Shop,
it is beautiful fabric, but I know I will not use it for a long time (too many things on my list) and it is too beautiful to stay on my shelf.
Just leave a comment for a chance to win.
Drawing will be Feb 15th.
 
Thank you for visiting and
I hope you come back and visit again.
Would love to have you as a follower.
 
 
Diane

    ReplyDelete
  112. Diane,

    All of your quilts are exquisite! I have sewed for most of my life and dabble, once in a while into basic quilting. Certainly, nothing to compare with your wonderful creations. Have you ever thought that what if our fore-mothers(is there such a word?) could come back down for a while to see the innovative things of today, like computers and long-arm quilting machines? I am dating myself, but I have thought about things like this many times.My mother used to join in what they called quilting bees, where every stitch had to be done by hand. It was a pretty old-fashioned idea, even in the 50's. Being a country gal, born in and brought up in south Georgia, I remember a lot of things like that.

    I very much enjoyed reading your blog today and I took a few minutes to check out some of your previous quilts. The one you created for Ian is gorgeous and a treasure for sure!

    Will follow your blog now and I hope you might find a moment to check out my humble blog where I post about lots of different things! God bless and have a beautiful day!

  113. Hi Diane
    Your quilts are so beautiful. The memory quilt with the stars is such a lovely idea and will be loved and treasured. It's been nice getting to know you.

  115. Great quilts and quilting! I 'visited' the ER twice in January so am with you in the recovery process. Best of luck to you. Hope the studio warms up for you soon. Mine is in VT so I have to wear sweatshirts this time of year.

    ReplyDelete
  116. What gorgeous quilts! And I love the idea of a 'memory quilt'. I have some older grandparents and that is a great idea to keep a tangible representation of them around a bit longer.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Hi! Just found my way to your blog today and am so glad I did. Your quilts are beautiful and your longarm quilting is gorgeous! How do you find time for that full time job? I will be back often for inspiration. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  118. Oh good grief, your quilting is....gorgeous!!! Will be back but doing a blog race as it is nearly Saturday! Would love to be entered in the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  119. You have created some extremely gorgeous quilts! I myself prefer cross stitch, but I would love a chance to win your giveaway for my mum. She adores fabrics and does various fabric related crafts including applique, although she is yet to attempt a full quilt (a few books from the library on the topic).

    Enjoy the party!

  120. Wow I love my visit. Didn't realize that there is so much going on in cyber world. Forgive me for coming to the party at the last minute, But 600 blog reading was a little tasking. I wanted to read and get to know the girls so I did read everyone's bio. Your my 542 blog and 24 hours left to go. If you like come visit My site http://overboardcreations.blogspot.com/and contact info is http://ovr_brd@yahoo.com I believe inspiration comes from all facets of life even knowing the great people out there with wisdom and knowledge the do's and don'ts and even the wonders of life from a personal point of view. I liked you following you on goggle connect and Bloglovin you. hope to see you in the cyber neighborhood I am new to blogging so I don't have a lot posted because I got side tract with GYB party. Kind of felt it was important to have some one read my silly chatter. I can't remember a time I didn't dabble in something creative. I tried a little of everything. But, my new love these days is Card making I just love it.
    Oh thanks for letting me enter your give away.
