Quilts (covered in cat fur)

These are the quilts I’ve done, or am doing now. I don’t pretend to be the best quilter in the world, but I do enjoy playing with color. Since my day job involves me working with databases and code, it’s often a pleasure and a relief to step away from that world and exercise another portion of my brain.

There’s a Quiltifesto of sorts - why I’m doing this, and why I do it in the manner I do. It’s a rant. You might even laugh at it. Be sure to read through the comments, too.

If I’m helping you decide what you want your quilt to look like, this page of ideas may help you.

 

RSS feed and photos

Want RSS feeds only of the quilts? domesticat.net/quilts/rss has it. Quilt RSS My quilt collection on Flickr has a photoset for every quilt listed here.

Want one?

I like making these, but they need homes. Please don’t assume I know what size bed you have, or what styles you like, or that you want a quilt. Fill out the quilt survey and let me know.

The Flickr group

I love action shots. I love knowing these quilts go on to have interesting lives after I’m done with them. I’ve set up an itty bitty flickr group at flickr.com/groups/amysquilts to lodge photos of the quilts after they’ve gone on to their forever homes.
