My finished quilt!!!!

If you have been keeping up with my blog you know that I have worked for months on a quilt top
with all of my leftover crafting fabric. It is called the "Disappearing Nine Patch" pattern.
 I don't have a long arm quilting machine or a frame to hand quilt and I wanted my quilt to look nice,
so I had a lady quilt it for me. She did an awesome job, I am so proud of the finished quilt.
I told her to use a light tan backing with some print in case I wanted to reverse the quilt and a chocolate border. I also told her to use whatever design that she would like for the quilting pattern,
she chose a flowered design and it is beautiful.
Now for pictures of my finished scrappy quilt.

Reminds me of Joseph's Coat of many colors
Love the color or the backing

Each square was a memory of something I had crafted, bonnets to a table runner, to doll dresses.


My favorite quilt squares made from civil war reproduction fabric, from my table runner class


Love the flowered quilting design


So very proud of my very first quilt!

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
