My Quilts

I just got a new quilt while I was home for Memorial Day weekend. I took some pictures of it, as requested by the ladies at work. While I was getting ready to post the pictures I realized that I have never taken pictures of our wedding quilt.

Here is the first quilt. At Brian and I’s wedding we had the guests sign red fabric hearts. In the following months my grandma made a quilt using the hearts.

This is the signature from my mom and dad’s heart. If you look close you can see the hand stitching by my grandma.

If you look REALLY closely you can see the hand quilted heart design by my grandma.

This is the quilt that I got over the weekend.

This was started by my paternal great grandma.

Then was worked on by my paternal grandma.

Then lately my maternal grandma has started to finish the quilts that had been started long ago. She is currently working on another that is a double wedding ring for my sister. After that there are two more that need finished.

My sister did the tying.

Now I want to hand quilt it. Of course I have never hand quilted and don’t really know what I’m doing or have the needed equipment. I’ve been reading about quilting. Now I just need to pick a design and buy some equipment. Any tips from seasoned quilters out there? I would also like to add a patch to the back with our names, maybe in a family tree type of design.

Oh, does anyone know the name of this quilt design?

Also, as you can see over at my other blog, I am offering free photography sessions right now.  Let me know if you’re interested!

Family Film Friday

I’ve taken on a huge project this week.  I’m moving all of my pictures from my laptop over to the desk top’s external drive.  The bad part is that some of these pictures are already on the external drive, so I’m having to sort through everything, get them into folders and delete duplicates.  In the long run I’m hoping that this will help my annoyingly slow laptop speed up a little bit.

Looking through all of the old family pictures that I have scanned over the past few years I can’t help but notice all of the pictures of my grandad being abbused by us four granddaughters.

This is a picture of Grandad and I at my first birthday party.  I had just stuck my hand in the cake, that’s him grabbing it out of the cake and keeping me from smearing icing everywhere.  When I was younger and we would look at this picture together I would tell him that he had put my hand in the cake.

This is my cousin Kristen and I sitting on his lap.  This man’s poor legs sure took a beating from all of us, but he never complained once.

This is my sister Angie playing dress up with Granddad.  We have so many pictures of poor Granddad dressed up in women’s dresses and wigs.  This poor man that farmed the same land he was born on and hunted spent his days playing dress up with four crazy girls.

He loved the Lord and his family.  He was a good man.  As far as I’m concerned there’s nothing better than a man that would do anything for his family and kids.  I just wish God hadn’t taken him so soon so we could have all learned from him in our adult lives.
