I’ve thought about all of my older quilts from time to time, and realized that not only are they not all labeled (yes, I know…bad quilter award here), I don’t even have photos of all of them. I have a whole house full of quilts; they’re in closets, on racks, on the walls, draped over chairs and couches, and stacked up on desks and cabinets. There are many more quilts in the house than I’ve documented on this site or anywhere else.

I’ve made it through all of the smaller quilts that I could throw up on the design wall, though I need to hope for a sunny weekend day so that ITMan can help me with photographing the larger ones outside I think. I’ve also spent a bit of time digging around in my (apparently) rather faulty memory trying to figure out exactly when some of them were made since I didn’t label them!
