About Me

My photo
I made my first quilt in 1973 while pregnant with my second daughter. My mother and grandmother both quilted but had not taught me, so I really began from scratch. I wanted a quilt to cover her bassinet, it was awful but it kept her head from rubbing the woven bassinet. My next attempt was a crib quilt for her but I had no one to tell me how large to make it. I measured the mattress and made it that size. Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Sam with no room to cover the baby. It just lays flat on the mattress. To say I have learned a lot, is an understatement.

Christmas Advent Quilt

I cannot believe that before we know it, Christmas will be here.

Do you remember the wonderful Advent calendars we had as children? Each day you could open the little door and you would receive a treat. It would be either a piece of candy or maybe a small gift or an ornament for your tree.

With that in mind, we have decided that you can still enjoy that fun with our Christmas Advent Quilt. Beginning on December 1st, you can receive one block each day for 24 days of this darling quilt. The blocks are 6" and the finished quilt will be a nice lap or children's quilt.

Our quilt will be all red and white so you can actually finish it and also use it for Valentine's Day in February. A dual duty quilt.

We have kept the price at a very low rate of $3.00 each (including postage). How fun to receive a little gift each day for 24 days prior to Christmas?

The sign up fee will include your book "Sylvia's Bridal Quilt" and it will arrive with your first block that will begin arriving in December.

We have included a picture of the first block. We hope you enjoy this little treat (and who knows what else we might put in your gift?).

  1. How much will this be if the purchaser is abroad (i.e. NOT in the USA.)? I think is is a lovely idea, but how much would it cost me here in the UK?
