Design Wall Monday–March 10, 2014

I haven’t really done much sewing this past week but I have been spending a lot of time in my sewing room.  I’ve been cleaning, tossing, donating and rearranging.   In the process, I found this.


What is it you ask?  It’s a small signature quilt from the first year that my sister and I attended a Mary Ellen Hopkins seminar in Las Vegas.  Little did we know back in July 1999 that not only would we continue to go back year after year but many of these wonderful women would become our life long friends.  We started out as the newbies, or virgins as Mary Ellen called us back then but eventually we came two of the teachers that would help fill in the gap when Mary Ellen was no longer able to continue with us. 

Here’s my center block, my sister Melinda’s block and Mary Ellen’s signature.



This brings back great memories but it’s also a little sad.

To see what others have up on their wall’s, head on over to Judy’s Patchworks Times blog

Now back to cleaning, sorting and organizing. 




  1. That's a great way of doing signature blocks. It's hard to lose some of the great quilt teachers. Great memories though.

  2. This is such an interesting post and testament to the fact that quilts are keepers of memories. Beautiful! xCathy


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