Which Day is Laundry Day?

Sunbonnet Sue, I am not.
I love my laundry. {Basket of quilts that is}

This pile keeps growing.
and that's good. Right?

On Thanksgiving this year, or was it last? Hmmm, I made a challenge to myself that I would only make quilts for donation. I probably have finished about 12 of them. This basket is full of about 24 tops. Many are string quilts for my String Thing Challenge and many others are from this wonderful book

Quilts from the Heart
by Karen Renaud

Here is a review from Amazon:

"I fell in love with the cover quilt, but have found so many others inside that I like as well. I have dozens of quilting books, but this is one I reach for often for inspiration.

The patterns are especially well suited for scrap quilts although most of the examples in this book are made with "bright" fabrics.

This is a great book for beginners / children learning to quilt. It is also good for quilters with experience to use as charity / gift quilts. They are interesting patterns, but quick to do.

Simple illustrations and instructions with easy, satisfying projects."

I couldn't agree more with this wonderful review.
I did sneak in a quilt or two last week for myself from Cluck Cluck Sew's
Double Hourglass Tutorial

Sorry Sunbonnet Sue, you'll just have to do your own laundry :)


  1. Great post. I love the part about telling Sunbonnet Sue to do her own laundry. I'll have to remember that one.


  2. I will have to take a peek at that book - it looks great! Love the wicker basket full of quilt tops - that's the kind of laundry I like, too! :o)

  3. Great Posts! I admire your creativity.


  4. Thanks for recommending the book. I love the cover quilt. I can't wait to see what's inside.


Your comments make me happy.
