A Trunk Full of Quilts

Soma over at Whims and Fancy’s is hosting a linky party trunk show so I thought I’d take a trip down memory lane and show you some of my favorite quilts.  This is going to be a photo-heavy post so I’ll keep the words to a minimum…

And, as my last photo, in honor of Veteran’s Day tomorrow…the quilt I made for my husband who is a Vietnam Veteran.  Thanks for joining me for my trip down memory lane.  These are just a fraction of the quilts of the last few years but I’ve really enjoyed sharing them with you!

Happy quilting!

  3. Great trunk show. I like them all, but my favorites are Keep Calm and Quilt On and the Band Raffle quilt.

  4. I smiled the whole way through this post…so many wonderful and beautiful quilts and runners! My husband was in Vietnam, too, and would love that veteran’s quilt! I’m with Kris, you must tell the yellow fish story.

  5. Beautiful work! I love all of the words that you have on your quilts. Your husband’s quilt is fabulous as is the band quilt. Yellow fish story??? Sounds interesting.

  6. You make so many quilts in a wide variety of colors and styles – I’m so impressed! What I love most is that your quilts are fun! Yellow fish rule? LOL

  7. Your Veteran’s quilt is a true labor of love – I love it. I also like all those words in your quilts. Why haven’t I done that?! Thanks for sharing!

  8. They are all lovely, but I am partial to the quilt you made to honor your husband’s service. Bravo!

  20. These quilts are just amazing! I love sawtooth star quilts too, and they are fun to make up. Love the cowboy quilt with the flying geese as well … great combinations. The never ending quilt is fantastic and looks like so much work! Thanks for sharing these beauties 🙂

  21. I love all your word quilt! And I especially love your Batik quilt. It’s true I’m pretty sure my Batik scraps clone themselves when I’m not looking! lol. Try as I might that basket never deminishes in size! cheers!

  22. I’ve never tried text blocks; it looks like you have them down pat. Thanks for the fun trunk show!
