Hidden Spools quilt top

I love this quilt!! My friend, Sydney, made this quilt top for me in exchange for quilting services!! I gave her the fabrics and here is what she made for me! I LOVE IT!! I want to make my sister one!
The other two pictures are quilts that are going on the machine this weekend. The Dresden Plate quilt is from a neighbor whose grandmother began piecing a while back. I've finished piecing the top, now I have to piece the back and quilt it. I will quilt it with traditional feather vines and feather wreaths. The red and cream color quilt is for a relative's b'day. I must get that done soon! Well, Sewing with Nancy is on....must go!


  1. Your quilts are so beautiful!! All of them have such a glorious vintage feel to them. . . hidden spools looks a little more "modern" but wow! at your dresden plate. My most cherished vintage quilt is a dresden plate made of old polyestery clothing. . it's so beautifully worn and perfect. I still have yet to make one. . you are very lucky to be a part of such a treasure.

  2. Wow - I am especially looking at your SPOOLS quilt - I've seen a lot of "Ordinary" quilts, but this one is spectacular - I may need to do one soon!

    I'm adding you to my Bloglines! I don't want to miss your beautiful projects!

  3. Thanks to both of you! I can't express just how much I love playing with fabrics!!! LOVE it LOVE IT! Matter of fact, I'm heading down to my sewing room now...I should at least get out of my pj's, don't ya' think? LOL....

  4. 4/2012) Me again - gosh I Googled Spools Quilt and yours came up and I thought I've never seen one so beautiful - well, I saw it back in April of 2010! LOL and I still LOVE it as much as back then!
