Montana Quilts

While in Montana, I snapped some photos of quilts I had previously made that now live in Big Sky.

This is the first quilt I made for my husband.  It seems very Montana-ish to me, so last October it was relocated up North.  There is no label, so I can't remember exactly when it was made.  We'll just say circa 2006.  It is posing on my favorite birthday gift....an antique old ski lift chair.

Here is another picture of it hanging off the deck.  It would have been nice if the weather had cooperated so you could see the Spanish Peaks better in the background.  The pattern is Granny Squares and has some lovely flannels....especially the backing....which I didn't take a picture of.

This cowgirl quilt was made for my daughter.  Another quilt without a label or name.  It was made this past summer.  The  pattern and fabrics are Laura Heine's of Fiber Works.  I had bought one of her cowboy boot patterns several years ago.  I discovered she has a quilt store in Billings, and I now try to visit it in the summer.  Amazing store!!!!  Good thing for my checkbook it is several hours away from Big Sky.....and a long way from Orlando!

Our very soft puppy dog Penelope loves this quilt.  Can you see the fabrics better in this picture?  I love the barb wire and brands!

Another AAQI quilt purchased as a Christmas gift.  This one is for my oldest to take to his new place.  Love the blue guitar!

This AAQI quilt I get to keep since it didn't arrive in time to give as a Christmas present.  I love it!

I have registered to participate in donating priority challenge quilts to AAQI.  I invite you to do the same.  For more  information, you can click on my sidebar link or sign up for the Liberated Challenge  with the Liberated Quilters.

Now, I just need to come up with some creative ideas of my own and get started.

Have an amazing day!!!


  1. All of those are great. I've been thinking I need to put labels on my quilts. I think I'll start soon. With my memory I'd never be able to remember!

  2. What fun pictures and lovely, lovely quilts! The colors call to me of movies and pictures I've seen of the West! Love them all, Rene'!

    I'm super amazed, proud and awed by your willingness to contribute to such a worthy and wonderful cause! Kudos to you my friend!

    Hope you and family have a fantastic day!

  3. That cowgirl quilt is so cute, I would have missed its cuteness if you hadn't pointed out the designs on the fabric. Your husband's quilt definitely belongs in Montanan!

    Great job on both quilts!
