Quilted Placemats, Quilts

Quilt Love

One of my absolute favorite things is to see quilts or quilted items I have made being used and loved. There really is no better way to send thanks than to send a photo of a quilt being used. I don’t care if it is best used as a cape, toy blanket, draped over a lap, or draped over a chair. I love knowing that the items I make are being seen, touched, used, worn, and loved!

Back in May, I worked with a friend to make the Solar System baby quilt for his baby girl. She was born a few months later, and I just love this photo of her with the quilt. When asking Emma’s mom for permission to post this photo, she agreed to let me and also said, “We love it. It’s a good quality quilt and prefer to use it over others we have.”

The newly completed Fall Placemats are also a big hit in their new home! They are loving them and each family member has already chosen “their” placemat – which is exactly why I made sure each top was a unique combination of the fabrics. Don’t they look like the perfect place settings?

I also recently got this super fun photo of the Spaceship Tic-Tac Quilt. “Package arrived today. Nephew loves it! Thanks again :)”

These photos make my heart so happy and are definitely the reason I love making quilts.

  15. Too right! We make stuff so it will be used and enjoyed.

  16. You couldn’t be more right! The best thing anyone can do is show how much it is being used/love/seen or anything in between! I dislike the moments when I am wondering about quilts I have made and have never heard from when it goes so long without seeing or hearing about them. Lovely quilts as always!

  17. I absolutely agree! I hate it when someone says, “that’s too pretty to use.” Umm, no. It was made to be used! So wonderful to see your creations being properly appreciated.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
