Heritage Happenings...

During the summer months our attendance at Heritage Quilt Guild always goes down!  Everyone is busy...on holidays, at the beach or out in their gardens!  BUT there are ALWAYS some die-hard members cranking out some wonderful projects!

Check out this wonderful baby quilt...ALL hand done...

Check out the hand stitches...black blanket stitches outline each appliqued piece and just look at that hand quilting!  Done by a PRO!  And all of this for a neighbour's baby!  If that isn't neighbourly love, I don't know what is!!

The colours are wonderfully vibrant and young...perfect for a baby's room!

This quilt is a labour of love...it was a project made by a young grand-daughter and her grandma... together!

I'm thinking future quilter in the making!
 Grandma is gifting the quilt to her grand-daughter!  Just imagine all the happy memories this quilt will evoke for that young girl!  Nothing like time spent with her grandma!  I can guarantee that this beautiful quilt will travel with this girl throughout her entire life!  You done good, Grandma!!
 Check out this charity quilt...love me a wonderful string quilt!
This quilt pattern is such a great way to use up those leftover scraps!

And speaking of scrap-happy...it doesn't get any happier than this quilt!
You have to check out the scraps to get the full impact!  Yup...it's scrappy!

 And check out the hand quilting...wee teeny tiny stitches...PERFECT!

Let me finish off with this quilt...you have seen it before... in the making!  This magnificent quilt is off the frame and bound...FINISHED...and absolutely STUNNING!! 

So we may have been few in numbers, but man, we had some strong finishes!  Ok...OK... THEY had some strong finishes, I'm still plugging along...:o) but I'm a great cheerleader!  

Until next time...
Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Stitching!~P


  1. We all need great cheerleaders! : )
    Thanks for the show. That first quilt--I didn't even do that for my own babies or grandchildren!

  2. Gotta love those loyal Heritage quilters. That hand quilting is beautiful. I've got to learn to hand quilt properly, I'd love to finish some of my little quilts this way.

  3. Amazing group of quilters! The baby quilt is stunning.....all the hand stitching/quilting -WOW! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I do love the baby quilt and the birds in the window is stunning. Always enjoy seeing what the ladies are making, such a talented group.


  5. Once again some beauties here especially drawn to the bird one a real treasure and how lovely wish my granddaughter had shown interest would have been lovely to do something with her but so far no interest and now she is off to uni

  6. This time, my favorite quilt is the bird quilt. The one where it looks like you are looking outside through the windows. Well done.
