Quilts and Tops for Sale

My brother John is continuing to post quilts I have collected, and tops I will never be able to finish -- the website is I will continue to post some of these and others on eBay under my seller name, "simplepleasuresquilting."

There is one that is absolutely gorgeous -- a true heirloom -- "Folk Art Wedding." My friend Betty Stubler, who sadly passed away a few years ago, did a beautiful job on the applique, and I loved choosing the fabrics for her. She made a quilt for herself and the top for me, from patterns that were a block of the month by Robyn Pandolph. I know someone will fall in love with this to finish for a special person. This is a closeup of one of the blocks.

December Is Here!

That busy month of the year is upon us! I'm still organizing my space (LOL) and posting excess fabric and wool to ebay. I've also had my brother John busy posting quilts and now quilt tops for sale on the website. Here is one that is one there now -- keep checking back to see what's new. Most of these quilt tops were made as shop models by teachers and staff, and are looking for a good home, all they need will be quilting, by you or your favorite quilter!

Here's a red and green rag quilt, perfect for snuggling during the holidays!

Sew and Tell Saturday

On Friday night, before our group get together, I stayed at Candy's and had to take a picture of her Buster on this quilt she made from Jo Morton's "Necessities" fabric line. He and Gretta had a great time together!

Enjoy the pictures of Debbie's trunk show --

The quilt on the left was made from the "Gatherings" fabric line by Linda Brannock and Jan Patek, and the Christmas quilt was a paper piecing class Debbie took years ago at Liberty Quilt Shop.

Two designs from Girl Gang by Jan Patek

Two more wool applique designs -- the table runner was a class Debbie took at Primitives of the Midwest with Lynda Hall, and the floral wall quilt was Sue Spargo's block of the month this year.

Debbie made found this pattern in a magazine for this wool applique on silk quilt. She used Renee Nanneman's silk homespun for the backgrounds and hand dyed wools for the applique.
