Welcome to the Quilt Qwazy Queens blog Hop! My friends and I, with the great organization skills of Marian Seams To Be Sew are celebrating International Quilt Day by participating in this blog hop! You can win great prizes by simply visiting the blogs and leaving a comment! Then do the Rafflecopter!Marian told me I could write about anything. I am Lisa and I quilt and do a bunch of other crafty things in a rural area in West Virginia. I learned to sew after an accident left me disabled and unemployed. Having worked since I was 14 years old doing nothing was not an option. I could not work or drive but I needed something in my life to do. I have physical and mental issue to deal with during this time. A woman, the owner, with a lot of patience at a local quilt store took the time and a lot of effort to teach me the basics of how to use a sewing machine and quilt.

Nuts About ? Blog Hop and Giveaway

I have always loved a good blog hop and this is a great one so far! Nuts About ? was thought up by Marian of Seams To Be Sew! She is such a sweet hostess. Thank you Marian for all your hard work. I spent a great deal of time thinking about what I am nuts about! My family (yes, but not for a hop), I truly love pincushions, but I really do have a thing for pillows!I am Nuts for - PillowsDon't you just love Charlie Harper! I do! Sometimes a print is just to perfect to cut up. Do a little straight line quilting and make pretty pillows for your couch. The lighting in my house was bad today, so out on the lawn for photos.
Here are a few I have made over the last 8 months! Great way to practice invisible zippers!
Making couch cushions kind of brightens up a room! Holidays is just one reason to make a pillow or two!
Even the neck pillow got recovered! Love the blue roses by Cotton + Steel! It is removeable.
These were all made using Lori Holt patterns from her book, Farm Girl Vintage (I am nu…

I decided I would make a quilt for my cousin and his wife as my project. The two lines of hearts show how their love will endure the test of time. Every year my cousin and his family come for the week of Thanksgiving including last year when my husband had a heart attack the Saturday after. This quilt is giving thanks for all the love and help Jessie (my cousin) gave us in the days and weeks that followed. As you can see below my husband is very lucky…
