My Quilt Story

Are you familiar with the Quilt Story blog? Every few days they feature a quilt and it’s story (gee, is it that obvious?). There have been some beautiful quilts and fantastic stories, and it started me thinking… I think the story behind my Neapolitan quilt is worth sharing, and I’m pretty darn proud of the quilt, too. I submitted a link to my recent Neapolitan blog post, and in just a day or two I had a response. They were interested in my quilt and liked the story, but they needed more photos. (Just what I love in a quilt blog – lots and lots of photos!) I promised more photos the next morning, and (practically) first thing I hauled it outside and proceeded to drape it over everything in sight. We have a beautiful garden (maintained entirely by my mom – hi Mom!), and I love taking photos of quilts out there. Once I sent the link to the pictures, I waited impatiently until they confirmed that they were going to feature my quilt. Woohoo! Today I received an email with the feature date – Monday, July 5th! For two days, it will be the featured quilt. If you’d like to check out my quilt, just click the link above to go to the site on July 5th and it will be the first entry. I’ll add a link to the individual post later.

Be sure to check out the many other wonderful quilts featured! And you can see all of the Neapolitan garden photos in my Neapolitan Flickr set.



  1. So very cool!! Congratulations!
    P.S. I’m going to be making your Criss Cross Quilt and printed out the instructions. Nowhere does it give credit to you. Thank your for providing them and I added your name and blog address to mine!

    • Mary, thanks for the heads up on the Criss Cross Quilt. I replaced the PDF with one that has my name and blog on it. I hope you enjoy making it!

  2. I am so totaly in love with your Neopolitan quilt. I saw it featured on the Quilt Story blog and couldn’t wait to come over and read your blog. You are an amazingly talented woman and should be proud of the quilt you designed and made from start to finish. I am so proud of you!!!

  3. Wow, I was too fast closing that comment. You said your local quilt shop liked it enough to offer you the fabric if you would write up a pattern! She gave you the fabric to make the sample quilt, and then she kept the sample until all of the kits that she made for it were sold. Right? So…the burning question is…are you going to share the quilt pattern with us? I’m waiting with baited breath. That quilt is absolutely stunningly gorgeous.


    • Thank you so much, Deborah! I have the pattern available for purchase on Etsy. You can find it here.
