Happy New Decade! from Mama Love Quilts

Hello dear reader,

How is the new decade treating you?!? Well, I hope.

I am so thankful to have made it through 2019. As you may have noticed, I haven’t blogged in quite a while. Well, I have a very good reason for that: Life!

It all began near the end of 2018 when I resigned from my job. I spent the latter part of 2018 sending out job applications. That carried me in to early 2019, which I spent traveling for job interviews. To make a long story very short, I got a job offer in Michigan that ...

Working With Grief with a Memory Quilt

I don’t think grief is a straight road. It’s a twisty, windy path through the woods. Some days are great. Some days are very sad. Making this memory quilt for my Father-in-law, Chet, is helping me walk this path and process my sadness.

Susie’s Quilt is Finished from Needle and Foot

Months ago I started to make a memory quilt for my friend Susie. Her husband passed away in September of 2018 and some months later she gave me a stack of his shirts to make a quilt with. I first posted here about this project if you want to see earlier pictures.

That weird little curved line at the too right is a branch from a tree. Creative photography?!

Yesterday I had lunch with Susie and (finally) gave her the quilt. She is really happy to have it and I am hoping she enjoys snuggling up with her quilt and ...

Two tutorials - Quilts from Shirts from Studio Dragonfly Quilts


The original post for these quilts was just over two years ago. This set of mini-quilts was made for a family of five siblings to remember their father. I've received several questions about reproducing the design for the first and third quilts so thought I'd share that information here so that you can make one, too.

One frequent question is about how to size the finished quilt to be bigger or smaller. Both of these designs are based on an eight block by eight block grid. In other words, there are eight rows of eight blocks. To determine ...

A Memory Quilt for Chris from CaliQuilter

Last Fall, my good friend Jan lost her husband Chris. She came to visit from Southern California, bringing along a bag containing some of Chris’s clothing. She asked if I would sew them into a small quilt that she could put on the family room sofa and use on evenings when it was chilly.

It took some time to figure out what could be used, and how it should be sewn together. Here is the finished product:

There was an interesting variety of fabric types and weights, which made this challenging: a heavy sweatshirt –
