Thank you Twyla and Lindsey for hosting this gala party for the lover's of The Wizard of Oz!!!

Pictures of my Wizard of Oz Collection of quilts are scattered throughout my blog. Colleen's Quilting Journal to Oz is toward the bottom because it was my very first post.

I recently created my blog, just in time to participate is this blog party.
Please note the post about Quilting Treasures website featuring my collection from the first four series of Wizard of Oz fabrics.

I hope you will enjoy browsing through my blog and viewing the quilts. I have had a great time creating each and every one. Thank you for visiting!!!


  1. I love your blog! Hope you'll visit me today, too!

  2. Colleen, thank you so much for sharing your tremendous quilting skills with us. The W of O fabric was so wonderful and when I saw your quilts, they just blew me away. Thank you for participating in our celebration! Twyla

  3. Wow! What an amazing quilter you are! Happy Oz Day! ♥

  4. What a treat reading your blog today and what a wonderful way to celebrate the Wizard of Oz.

    Saw your quilts featured on the Quilting Website and small wonder-they are fantastic.

    They mentioned you even designed these - that is very creative.

    Read your quilting journal also, love it how you quilted and sang the songs from the movie.

    There is just something so cozy, comforting and soothing about quilts and how great that your loved ones receive these.

    And that is a great little trio of dogs!

  5. I love the quilts you did from the Wizard of Oz fabric. Your children and grandchildren must treasure these precious gifts. As a fan I love them too!! I love your dogs too. Are they sisters? Katharine

  6. Hi,
    Wow , what beautiful Quilts. I love the WOZ themed ones. Come join my party. 8-)

  7. I was so happy you came to visit me at Once Upon a Fairyland. I too, was new to blogging not long ago. I've so overwhelmed by the love and praise and good positive affirmations given, I just want to take Tinkers hand and sing...I can fly, I can fly, I can fly...Be blessed, beautiful work, just amazing quilting.

  8. Collen, it's been fun getting to know you and I appreciate you sharing your quilting talent with us! They are all awesome!

  9. OH, Colleen! I'm so glad you invited me by! Your patchworks are Ozzy perfection! If you like the idea of doing a quilt "channeling" the Oz countryside/Emerald City outskirts (like I suggested under one of my images in my Gala blog entry) feel free, I'd be honored. It's more than obvious, as shown in your quilting results pictured here, that you could do the idea justice! Remarkable needlework indeed! P.S. I simply love the Friendship quilt featured below, as well. As the old adage truthfully goes, "The acorn doesn't fall far from the tree!"

  10. Colleen, your quilts are amazing! What a truly talented artist you are. What little girl wouldn't love that Wizard Of Oz quilt covering her bed? I've enjoyed perusing your blog.

    Best Wishes,


I love your comments!
