Trunk Show Thursday–April 28, 2011


This is my “Bricks and Mortar” quilt designed by Mary Ellen Hopkins.  This was one of the first quilts that I made at at my very first Mary Ellen Hopkins seminar (retreat) back in July 1999.  I had not idea what I was doing.  Typical Mary Ellen, we were told to bring a variety of reds and a neutral that kind of disappeared.  My sister and I each brought a bunch of reds and shared.   I needed a birthday gift for my Mother that year so this was her gift.   Bless her heart, she used it just about everyday to take a short afternoon nap with.  After she passed away I brought it home and it is now part of my trunk show showing Mary Ellen’s take on all reds go together, even those orange/reds. 




  1. Well ok, that made me tear up! Love that your mom used it everyday :)

  2. Mine is hanging on the quilt rack outside my bedroom. We had a lot of fun that first time, didn't we.

  3. This makes my heart go pitter patter. I love it!

  4. What a lovely the reds!



Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
