Good Day,

In the sweltering of the August heat our quilt Christmas Packages II is on its way to its new home in Florida. We have to make sure that we’re kept warm in the Florida winter chills.

To see previously posted quilts, there is a visual grid presentation at the bottom of the Quilts SB page. Move your cursor over any mini-picture found there and click to see an enlargement. Move your cursor to the "Q#" link to see the quilt's details. If the quilt’s title is highlighted in yellow, it has found a home in a collection and is no longer available.

Please let me know if anything on the Blog site does not properly work, or do what it says it is supposed to do. I’m always striving to make sure an ease of use.

If you are interested, and would like some more information of the available quilts, regarding costs, shipping, and insurance, please get in touch with us Quilts SB.

Q142 - Owl - New Quilt Flies Home

Good Day,

Owl, our 142nd quilt, has been completed and is flying its way to its new home in South Carolina.

OWL - JS AB - August 2016


Owl is a creation inspired by the fabric, of a fantasy owl, and the colors of choice for a brand new room.

It is created from the pixelation from a cutout of a thought I found surfing for playful owls on the Internet.  Previously I had been creating our own designs and patterns but as we like to experiment I used a program offered by YouPatch to create the pattern and step-by-step booklet.

The dimensions of our Owl are: Length - 58" (147.3 cms) and Width - 48 ¼" (122.6 cms).

The prime fabric used to create Owl was obtained at Happy Apple Quilts.



And some more images -








Here are links to the progress and working of Owl -

Q141 - We're Sailing - Quilt and Wall Hanging

Good Day,

Well Dylan made his entrance just over a week ago and a little boy’s room with a boating theme definitely needed a quilt.

We're Sailing - JS AB - 2016
Our 141st quilt – We’re Sailing.


Once Andy and I discovered that the family's theme would be boats and the sea, we just had to create "We're Sailing".  And we had to try something different regarding the label.

Yes there are many, many examples of quilts in the ethereal Internet space of sailboats and the sea.  We thank everyone that has put their creation out there in InternetLand to help spark our inspiration and thought processes.

The dimensions of We're Sailing: Width - 33 ½" (85.1 cms); Length - 63" (160.0 cms).  All fabric is 100% cotton.

My Quip - Owl Quilt Takes Shape

Good Day,

All 64 blocks for our new Owl quilt have been completed. Now we hold our breath and hope that our design comes together, as anticipated.




All horizontal rows have been sewn. 6 of 10 have been matched together and sewn. Yes this is a "cute" quilt; it should be.

OWL - JS AB - 2016


We're both amazed at both the simplicity and the complexity of the design and pattern, right down to the 3/4" squares.
