Elephant and Donkey Quilts

Pixel quilting is all the rage, but it’s really not a new technique. In 1931, the Kansas City Star published a mosaic elephant pattern as a tribute to a beloved elephant at the local zoo.

The next year, a companion quilt was released. This one featured a pixelated donkey named Giddap. Both are cute as can be, and so easy to put together!

Fun fact: The cupcake was originally named for its super-simple recipe: 1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 3 cups flour, and 4 eggs. No pinch. No dash. No hand-crafted vanilla or truffles foraged under a full moon. Just 6 cups & a handful of eggs! Easy peasy!

What makes a sunset so special? I mean, every single night – just like clockwork – that same ‘ole sun sinks below the same ‘ole horizon. So why do we write poems and sing love songs and treasure every last drop of fading sunlight? It’s all in the details!

My very favorite quilts are the kind of quilts that are used and enjoyed. The ones that snuggle a baby or keep Mom warm during chilly little league games. The ones that follow you to the beach and the mountains and dozens of family picnics. They may end up with a smudge or a stain, but these quilts are always the best loved – and so full of memories!

Royal Wedding Quilt

Royal Wedding Quilt

On Saturday, May 19, the eyes of the world were fixed on the royal wedding of Britain’s Prince Harry and his lovely American bride, Meghan Markle. But my eyes? They were fixed on that veil!

Royal Wedding Quilt

It was 16.5 feet of flowing silk tulle with hand-embroidered flowers all along the edge: California poppy to represent Meghan’s home, wintersweet to represent the home of her prince, and flowers for each of the 53 countries in the Commonwealth. As you can imagine, it took hundreds of hours to stitch that garden of silk and organza blooms. And since they were working with such delicate, white silk tulle, the veil’s creators paused every 30 minutes to wash their hands. It was truly a masterpiece, but I’m exhausted just thinking about it!
