  4. Thank you Anna!!! Loved the trunk show, your quilts are lovely. Whomever does your longarming, did a superb job on those Stacy West and Halloween quilts...just beautiful! Having a quilt for each holiday is on my bucket list. So nice that each quilt has a story. Makes me want to make some for me; as I always end up giving mine away. You and G do a great job with your filming and narrating.

    1. Sandy Lachowski in Bend is the most amazing longarmer :) Most of my quilts live somewhere else but these are ones just for me :)

  6. Your comment, "Quilting is all about the quilter." really struck a chord with me. As you talked about each quilt I really understood how much your interaction - and love - for others is part of each quilt. Uh...yep...I searched for the Sew Spooky pattern, found it, and ordered it...along with some other patterns I found, too. Oops. :-) How lovely to see Enzo romping about and playing! Remembering him with smiles and laughter and love. Thank you for sharing this with us, Anna.

  7. I really enjoyed the "sofa" turning. I remember seeing Eleanor Burns "bed" turning episode and didn't know what a bed turning was until that. I have so many quilt tops and need to quilt them but my machine quilting is not that great and I can't afford or know a good long arm quilter. I really enjoyed seeing all the lovely quilts and I know there was more, the Grandbaby quilts and the one you made your sister for over her headboard. Have a great weekend

  17. Thank you for the Quilt show. Really enjoyed it and such lovely work on each one. So I believe you must be making a trip to Minnesota come Sept or Oct. So glad you are able to come east to the Midwest. That is the time of year when trees are starting to turn and the beauty of nature is prime.

  23. Hello Anna from a sunny England (for a change lol). I loved seeing your quilts, I'm so looking forward to having a go at wools but don't know where to buy them here, I'll get there in the end. I need a collection like yours so I guess I'm just going to go stitch xx
