story quilt day 5

Three days sewing at quilt camp has given me lots of sewing time dedicated to my story quilt. The crazy pieced borders are attached to center, the hoochy mama blocks are ready to sew on. I used all my green scraps to crazy piece shrubs along the fence. The brick porch banisters are almost working, all this is pinned on. I have a long way to go but so far this has been fun! I decided to have a hot air balloon fiesta to honor daughter #3 who lives in Albuquerque. The large balloon and banner will say "I love you, a bushel, a peck and a hug around the neck", the flowers in pots are my grandchildren, each in their favorite colors.
More to come, after a little time to rest!
Happy Quilting,


  1. You are making great progress on this quilt, Colleen! It will end up as a family heirloom!

  2. Would you please send me photos of your journey with your story quilt to show people in 2013? Your colors, story and work are incredible and I love everything you have done!
    May you find many new and happy surprises this year!


I love your comments!
