In my old age I’m trying my hand at quilting…hand quilting. It’s slow, but so am I we make a great team.

Our youngest daughter, Vicky, sent me a crazy quilt book and challenged me to make a quilt for her. I was in over my head from the get go. But here it is.

This was my second challenge, another quilt for one of our twin daughters, Sonya. I just set it to her Fed Ex. It will be out for delivery tomorrow.

I made this for Barb, my bride of 51 years. It’s small, 12″ by 15″. She keeps her Bible on it.


This is for our other twin Daughter, Tina. She wanted wild horses, so I did my best. It’s not finished.

The four horses that went on Tina’s.

A work in progress. The American Flag came from a scarf Barb wore while we pedaled our tandem bike on Missouri’s Katy Trail.

  1. Nice work, Scott! I love the piece of scarf you included in your CQ piece. And the wild horses in your daughter’s quilt — fun stuff! πŸ™‚

      It is fun stuff. I have to wait for payday for the rest of the stuff going with the wind horses. The scarf added a special touch that Vicky appreciated. Someplace I have a photo of Barb wearing the scarf at the Katy rail station in Boonville, Missouri. We are absolutely beat up. But that’s another story. πŸ™‚

    As a beginning quilter AND failed crazy quilter I can tell you that you are doing great!


  3. Scott, Your work looks wonderful. Your first try at crazy quilting is something to be proud of. I bet your daughter will cherish it. It’s my favorite creative expression form, because it is so free-spirited…I enjoyed visiting your blog.

      Thank you very much. Crazy Quilting allows one to put a bit of one’s self in it. Yes, Vicky likes it along with the mistakes.
