M & M Quilters
My grandmother taught me how to sew as a small child. Having been born in Austria, you were taught to sew, knit, and embroider at a young age. It has always been an enjoyable part of my life. So, it only seemed natural to go on to quilting as the next step. I honestly don't have the patience for a lot of hand quilting, so most of my work is machine pieced and machine quilted. I am never alone in my quilting. My helper, Socks the cat, is always by my side, or on my chair, or on my shoulders, always ready to help. When she feels I haven't done enough quilting for the day, she will carry a small amount of fabric in her mouth upstairs to let me know it's time to get back to the sewing machine. If only I could teach her to cut. The quilts that I have on this site are ones that I never tire of making. They are fun quilting projects and each one differs with the colors. I am always on the lookout for new patterns that I would enjoy making and having in my home. As I come across these, I will add them to my web site.

Autumn Leaves - Do you enjoy the autumn weather with its crisp, clear days and beautiful display of colored leaves on the trees? Does it make you want to bite into a juicy, red apple? Well, now you can have autumn leaves on your table and wall that won't disappear with the first snow of winter. This is one of my best sellers and just like leaves, each piece is unique. I always look for new, rich-colored fabrics for the leaves, and stay with an ivory background. A couple of years ago, I started to outline the leaves with a gold thread which adds to the richness of these quilts. The large quilt runs 49" x 49" with a price of $89.95. The small quilt runs 28 1/2" x 28 1/2" with a price of $59.95. Either one can be used as a wall hanging or table cover, or treat yourself to one of each. Specify table cover or wall hanging, as the quilted wall hanging come with tabs for hanging.

Quilted Lightship Basket Pillow

Lightship Basket Pillow - Centuries ago while sailors along the shores of Nantucket were protected by lightships, the keepers passed the months at sea by weaving baskets, hence, the Nantucket basket.
