Catch a Rainbow ~ Emily & Makana ~ Santa Maria, CA

Emily spent Christmas visiting her family in Santa Maria, CA.  Her granddaughter, Makana, came back to town with Emily for five days.  Makana wanted to make a quilt with her grandmother, so they sat down and chose a pattern.  After a quick tutorial with the color wheel, Makana chose some dark and light batiks and they went to work.  The quilt turned out fabulous!  The pattern is “Catch a Rainbow” from Simple Quilts & Sewing #123 July 2012.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful quilt ladies!

Featured Quilt-of-the-Week

A woman and her quilt from the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum

I saw this picture, and I know it is not our usual type of featured quilt, but it really captured my interest.  What a great and beautiful quilt from the past.  I love all of the detail and quilting on it.  I can’t even start to imagine how much time she  put into this quilt.  Not to mention how she got all of the fabric, which seems to coordinate so well.  I am not sure of the details of this quilt, but I wish I could hear the story behind it!

This really got me thinking about how in the great depression women would carefully pick out their seed sacks so they could plan out and coordinate their quilts.  They were so resourceful in a time where extra money for fabric was not realistic.  They were masters of up-cycling!

I really take for granted my local quilt shop (and my moms fabric stash!).  I think I will try to be resourceful and make a quilt with re-purposed fabrics, at least once.

Have you ever made a quilt with up-cycled fabrics?  How did it turn out?
