Quilts Remembered

Quilts Remembered is my new pattern company. I have been working very hard on getting this idea off the ground. The concept of a pattern company came to me while working on the quilts for Jo's Little Women Club. As I made the quilts for the club I was also designing and making an 'Extra' quilt for the club members. They seemed to enjoy the 'EXTRA' quilts. So I thought maybe more people would enjoy them and want to make them. The 'EXTRA' quilts then became the quilts for Quilts Remembered. You can see the first 7 quilts and the patterns at Glad Creations, Quilt Block. They are on display in a trunk show until mid-December.

Along with the Quilts Remembered patterns I needed a website. So, why not design that at the same time? It seem to do my best under pressure. I had no idea what I was getting myself into and I can see I have a lot to learn. Please check out my website at,

I have little gremlins that live in my house. They love to play tricks and do thoughtless things. They thought it would be funny to add one more layer of complexity to my life so the wonderful little dears crashed my computer. I had been babying my computer for a long time and it did need to be replaced. However, not while I was writing patterns and building a website. So off to the computer store I went.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to get help on Black Friday at a computer store??? I looked at several models and of course confusion set in. My head hurt! After a couple of stores, reams of paper listing specifications of the different models, talking to salesmen that didn't know what a quilt was, I made my decision. I am happy with my far. Unfortunately, I didn't get the pretty one.

Hope you had a tasty Thanksgiving...did you know that quilting thread is a good substitute for kitchen string to tie up a turkey? Worked for me!

Happy Quilting,
