My Freddie Quilt

Ever since I started quilting and watching Simply Quilts, I have loved bright quilts. I especially love Freddie Moran quilts. I even remember seeing a television show of some type that toured her house.

When this book she authored with Gwen Marston came out I was thrilled, and I have spent many hours pouring over the contents. It is a great book full of lots and lots of quilts and well worth the money in my opinion. Sometimes you buy a book and there about 2 pages you like and you think there went $20.00 I could have used for fabric! Not so with this one.

I finally made my own quilt using some of the steps and ideas in this book. It was great fun, and I hope to make more like this. I plan on hanging this on a wall in my upstairs hallway. I just need to buy some of those quilt hanger thingamabobs. I think my daughter's arms are getting tired.

Love that quilt. I haven't come across this book, but shall keep my eyes open. It's always good to get a recommendation isn't it?

That is a beautiful quilt. I usually dislike 'sampler' quilts as they are made in safe and boring colours. This is vibrant and full of life. Go quickly and buy those hangers. It deserves to be hung. Well done.

Thanks too for the info on the book.

Freddy Moran is a real trip! I met her once and she is just as bright and sunny and quirky as her designs. Your quilt is beautiful.

Hi Donna! Thanks for stopping my blog.

Your quilt is fantastic! It will look great in your studio.
