QJ - Z's Quilts

Z'S QUILTS
formerly known as MORE "NOTHING" QUILTS -

Wholecloth pre-quilted panel
Baby quilts

Made for Z

The pre-quilted panels only required binding in the color of my choice -

  • 2 pkgs of quilt binding for each quilt - or -
  • 3 pkgs to bind 2 panels in the same color

Warning!! - Panels may be printed crooked -
Straightening was required on some -

Sorry for the crappy photos -
These are scans of the photos in my scrapbook -
I don’t have the original quilts so I couldn't take new photos - ;))






I always referred to these little quilts as "Nothing" quilts -

Since there was "Nothing" to them - ;))

But the last time I posted some “Nothing” quilts - here -

Both KatieM and Julie Fukuda set me straight - ;))

First KatieM -

Katie M. has left a new comment on your post "QJ - "Nothing" Quilts":

No such thing as a "nothing" quilt. You chose the panel, you created the quilt, you gave your time and your love to making something special for someone special - that's really SOMETHING!

I replied -
Thanks, Katie! - ;))
P.S.
What I meant by "Nothing" is that there was not much of anything "quilt" related necessary to finish them up. They were like an "instant" quilt. They were already quilted - so I just added a little binding - a little time - and a whole bunch of love - ;))


She wasn’t buying it -
She came back with -
Doesn't matter - you still thought of the person they were intended for and proceeded to make them special - I'm sticking to my "no such thing as a "nothing" quilt :-)

I replied -
OK - YOU WIN!! - ;)) ALL quilts are something special - even if they are super-easy to put together. But - just so you know - I made another batch of "Nothing" quilts for another baby a couple of years later - so when I post the Quilt Journal entry for those - just repeat what you just said - haha - ;))

That "other" baby - of course - is Z and these are his quilts - ;))

And then Julie added her comment -

Julie Fukuda has left a new comment on your post "QJ - "Nothing" Quilts":

Something like that to be dragged around and loved and still hold up is a whole lot more than "nothing"!

I replied -

THANK YOU, LADIES - for taking the time to set me straight -

YOU ARE RIGHT - THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A “NOTHING” QUILT - ;))

  1. They are right. Some quilts are more elaborate and labor intensive. This happened to be for a baby and you know what babies can do to "ruin" a quilt. Make 'em another one that is fancier when they outgrow it!

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
