I do quilting the old fashioned way. I also make tie quilts as well. My father-in-law made me a quilting frame years ago when I first got marrried.

I have done the tie quilts and can remember standing in the garage with my mom and doing the ties. she had the frame hanging from the rafters. She would pull it up and down when wanting to work on a quilt. With us girls helping she got a lot done. I still have many of those quilts. A sweet reminder of my mom and the fun we had. Thanks for responding

No I understand. When I was quilting my quilt top one of my little ones laid a permanent marker on top of it without the cap on. My full sized quilt became a twin size.

If I had more time on my hands I would love to do some quilting. I think the old fashioned quilts are so pretty. They also have love involved in them. Before my mother-in-law passed away she quilted quilts for all her grandkids. They were very pretty and she did do them all by hand.

Quilting - A lost art and a labor of love
I agree with you and about the love involved in them. I also think it is a work of art.

What kind of small projects do you do? Since I am currently separated from my sewing machine, I miss quilting.
