18 months Together

Our 18 month anniversary was this past Sunday. I thought I would do a post with all the quilts that I have done in those 18 months. This first one is just the quilt top of course, and the blue sampler I had put together (but not finished) before we were married. The rest of them were put together, and quilted after we said our vows. Senora, maybe I should open a quilt shop :o) ( I haven't started quilting the scrappy quilt yet. I found some neat blue and white materials so I am cutting out the pieces for that one now)

Regina,
I'm not sure you know me, but Janella & I are friends and I use to go to school with Jason so I feel like I "know" you :)
I love seeing your quilts and think your black & white one pictured above is just beautiful! You should definitely consider selling your work.
Thanks for sharing.
Leah (Herring) Randall

My favorites are: the music one (of course!!), the blue and yellow one and the americana one, but they're ALL beautiful and represent hours of hard work and artistry. Congrats!

~d said...

hey! i just thought of a great way to thank the lady who taught you how to quilt..... ;)

just kidding! they are beautiful, though, and i am so very jealous

Regi said...

Thanks for all the comments.

Yes, Leah, I remember you (a little).

Senora, remember during that quilting class when Lyndie got the hiccups?? Didn't she hang over a chair to try to get rid of them? Something goofy like that happened.

They are beautiful -- I like them all but I think I would have place for the "mocha" one -- the one in browns.
You should start a shop or at least take orders!! I would love to put one on my bed!

Beautiful!
yes, and while la senora was peacefully instructing you girls on delightful things like scrapbooking and quilting, I was in the kitchen with a bunch of guys who didn't want to be there, or didn't want ME to be there. Either way, I so-o-o-o wanted to be in ~d's class!

~d said...

anna - aw, that's sweet!

regi - i don't specifically remember that incident, but it sure sounds like something our lyndie would do :):)

Regi said...

Lol I am almost positive it was Lyndie. I remember working away on that first quilt. My favorite part was hand quilting it (and still is) Course back then 3 stitches in an inch was good for me :o)

Dani said...

I remember the hiccuping incident..it seems to me she tried hanging over backwards on the chair and it fell backwards and she did a little back flip :)

lyndie said...

that's the only way i could ever have acheived a back flip! i remember being able to do backBENDS... *LOL* i do remember the incident- i'm sure i must've handled it quite gracefully- as we all know how coordinated i am. ;P

you HANDquilted all those?! now i'm just baffled- that would've taken me "forever"!

Regi said...

Lyn, I am sure it was graceful, like a swan....riiggghhht! Those were the days. Yes, they are handquilted. I haven't even learned how to machine quilt and I am not sure that I want to. I love handquilting.

Jason said...

I can verify that she HAND quilts these quilts! Check out her finger and all of the wholes!!!! She is amazing!
