Wedding Dress Made into Two Quilts for April from Mary Manson Quilts


April sent me a beautiful satin wedding dress with a full skirt and train and beautiful lace bodice and sleeves.  She asked me to make two wedding dress quilts for her son and daughter.  Each quilt was to be different, and she wanted me to incorporate Celtic designs and silver and gold thread.


Her daughter's quilt had a lace heart made from the sleeves in the center.  The lace on the bottom edge of the dress was used in the diamond shape in the center.  A Celtic design was quilted in silver thread in the inner border, accented with ...

Back to the Bible from From the Strawberry Patch...

If you have read my blog for a while, you might remember that a few years back Quiltkeemosabe and I embarked upon an adventure: we challenged each other by committing to Rosemary Youngs' book: The Quilt Block Bible by making, and writing instructions for, each of the 202 six inch blocks pictured in the book! We kept up pretty well for a time-- meeting monthly for an exchange of information

Boo, J.D. (for Juvenile Delinquent) from Art and Quilting in Camden

Boo, J.D. by Sarah Ann Smith, 2019

Boo’s portrait is the third part of this trio of quilts. I had considered doing a self portrait, Sarah and her muses, with the selfie for my local Coastal Quilters challenge due next May. But then hubby, who has never ever asked me to make an art quilt, said when he saw the ones of Yoda and Widgeon, “you should make one of Boo, too.” Boo, you see, is his Very Special Cat. So I did that instead. Much nicer than a selfie! And it turns out the portrait challenge doesn ...

I Love, Therefore I Am (Widgeon’s quilt) from Art and Quilting in Camden

“I Love, Therefore I Am” is the perfect title for this quilt of our beloved pug, Pigwidgeon.

Earlier this summer I made three quilts for Janome America to share at the upcoming dealer conference in Florida this week. Janome has generously sponsored me with a machine and included me in their Artisan program for over 15 years!!!! THANK YOU (yes I’m shouting)! I was delighted to make these in appreciation. Here is the blurb I wrote to go with Widgeon’s quilt.

I Love, Therefore I Am
 
Yoda, the love of my life, tells me that Mom has done ...

Pineapple Log Cabin Quilt {Finished Quilt} from Little Bunny Quilts

In my push to finish, finish, finish, I got my Pineapple Log Cabin quilt finished before it languished on a shelf for 6, 12, or 18 months -- unlike a lot of other finishes this year! Here's the quilt top when it was completed in June:



When I started this quilt, I got all of the supplies for it at one time -- I thought ahead and included the batting and a spool of Aurifil thread the same time I ordered the fabric. Sometimes, I forget about batting and thread -- especially batting! -- and that ends up being an impediment to finishing ...

Still quilting............. from Exuberant Color

I'm about 2/3 done with the quilting on the X and + quilt.  I should finish in a couple days.







When I was filling the bird feeders I saw a stem half broken off of one of my Brown Eyed Susan plants so I broke it off the rest of the way and brought it in the house.  I never think about picking a bouquet of these and there are certainly enough that I could and it wouldn't look like anything is missing on the plants.

New England World Quilt Show Exhibit! from Art and Quilting in Camden

In a rather astonishing development last May, an earlier inquiry about teaching and exhibiting turned into an invitation to have a solo exhibit, The Art of Sarah Ann Smith … so far, at the Mancuso Brothers World Quilt New England Show tin Springfield, Massachusetts (this is the one that used to be in Manchester, NH). I hope you’ll enjoy this preview peek, if you’re in the vicinity can visit, and on Saturday I hope to post a Facebook Live or other video of the exhibit. I should arrive about noon (it’s a long drive from Maine). Click on ...
