Originally from Wisconsin, Joyce has been “living on the job” in California where her hubby is, living in a 5th wheel, and setting up her sewing in a car trailer.
“It has electricity, lights, and air-conditioning”, she says. “What more do I need?”
Though lamenting the fact that her entire stash is home in Wisconsin, along with her long arm machine, this has also forced her to be inventive with small amounts of fabric she has accumulated while in California, making tops for charity.
I do not have the name or a source for her patterns, many of which can be made from simple strips, rectangles and squares. I hope it will inspire you in the making of quilts for your own charity efforts, particularly that of the call for Cover Colorado quilts from the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in Golden Colorado where they are hoping to cover and cheer those who have lost so much.
Simple rectangles. Very pretty!
A great masculine quilt for a teenage boy!
Loved this one! I think she called it Fire Escape!
I just love that while she is away from home, living on site that she has found a way to not only keep herself busy, but to enjoy it! To get to know other quilters in the area, ((And find where the SHOPS are! LOL!)) and fill her soul while making quilts that cover others in need.
Perhaps her quilts will inspire you to put something together for Colorado? I hope so!
Joyce, it was so nice meeting you! Quilt on!
I am off this morning for a much needed oil change and check up for Shamu.
I am READY to do Quilt-Cam tonight! Are you game? Bring a project --- I'm eager to be sewing! 9pm Eastern, See You There!
