The Egg Money Quilt

Whew...
after three years, I finished my first "quilt of the month" quilt.

I took this 8 month class down at the local Cotton Shop
here in Provo, Ut.

I had only made a Christmas wall sized
quilt before taking on this project.
(this was before I started working full time)


Quilting is not for the impatient person.
Quite frankly, I never thought I would have
patience to do this art form.

First, you have to love fabric
Second, you have to love sewing
Third, you have to be a good mathematician
Fourth, you have to have good design
~
I have learned and matured into all four.

Below is an "EGG MONEY" Quilt-
A 1930's Vintage Sampler

origin of egg money quilts click here.
Here are a few of my favorite blocks.




The quilting was done on a machine by my cousin
Joanna, she quilts for a living.
Here is her blog.

I was very interested in quilting in my twenties but,
I had to wait until my daughters were
raised before I could start this hobby.

On to the next one and the next one...

NICE WORK. EMPHASIS... nice. The quilt looks sweet on our bed. Too bad the cat will think it's his very own domain. And he matches the quilt.
