Quilts Home For a Visit

Hello Everyone,
A few of my "traveling quilts" arrived home before Christmas so I was able to display them in my own home.  Summers Blush has been gone for a whole year while she traveled around to quilts shows on the East Coast.

This  version of Country Charmer has also been gone for almost a year.   I was so happy to have this one home for the Holidays since it is so cheerful.

The other version is on display in the window at In Between Stitches.

Now that most of my quilts are home, they will be moved around to other quilt shops and become shop samples.  They have to earn their keep!  I have a flow chart prepared so I can keep track of what quilts are where and for how's like herding cats!

Christmas has officially been packed away for another year.  My house looks naked!  I love to have all the decorations put away by New Year's so I can start the year organized with everything nice and tidy.  My mother always said, "The condition of your home on New Year's day, is the way it's going to look all year long."   I don't know if this is an old wives tale, but I'm not taking any chances.



  1. So beautiful quilts.
    Liebe Grüße Grit

  2. Happy New Year Lynn... Looking forward to see more beautiful patterns coming our way...


  3. your quilts are beautiful! I have been working on putting decorations away today. Yes, the house does look different. Happy New Year!

  4. I just love both of these quilts ! They are on the top of my bucket list this year !

    I have been doing the same thing the last 2 days. ALL of my Christmas things are put away and it feels so good to have it done.


  5. I would love to be able to take the trees, etc down now, but my husband won't let me as he tells me it's bad luck to put everything away until 12th Night, so I've still got a few days to go!

  6. Love seeing your quilts...they look adorable in your house and in that picture window! Santa et al stays here for another week or so, then We will slowly put things away. Guess I will have to fall in love with snowmen instead of Santas!
