Show and tell…

Sylvia Phillips sent pictures of her newly finished quilt, Sunny Days. The quilt and her story both make me so happy! the pattern for the quilt is from our book, Curl Up Quilts. This is a quilt that will put a smile on your face!

I made the Sunny Days quilt using the scraps from my “stash”. I had lots of Christmas themed bits. I do love yellow and I was delighted with how this pattern worked up..(pictures enclosed) I will be 86yrs old in a couple of months so my quilt making has slowed down but your designs always spur me to make just one more..  Sylvia Phillips…Lititz, PA 

I appreciate the fabric and color choices because they elevate what is a pretty simple design. Sylvia’s quilt keeps you engaged because there is a lot to see.

Sylvia, thank you for sharing your quilt with us, and for telling us your age because that is wonderful to know! Quilting can be a life-long passion. Speaking for myself, I intend to keep at it even when my work might not be perfect. I will be thrilled if, at 85, my sewing technique is as good as yours is. Thank you, and happy stitching!

  1. Happy quilt and inspirational story! Slowing down is ok, and I have even begun to do that already to enjoy the process since I quilt because I want to and not because I need quilts. Stitch on Sylvia!
