Separation Woes

Yeah, I love all the quilts I finish...there I said it again! Let me apologize in advance because I'm sure I'll be saying it time and time again. There's no easy way about it; I quilt them, I love them and then I have separation anxiety! If only I could keep them...*sigh*

Here is a peek at another quilt belonging to Marcie.

If your catching up on blog reading please scroll down to see a few other post to understand my separation anxiety issues.

You do such beautiful quilting. You are what I aspire to be someday!

Catherine said...

Your quilting is fantastic!! Wonderful designs you chose for that quilt!!

Dawn Heese said...

I would have a hard time sending them back home.

Julie in the Barn said...

So pretty. Your quilting is perfect for it.

The Quilt Buddy said...

You did another awesome job on this quilt!

Hope you are enjoying your coffee this am. Enjoy the long weekend.

BTW- We are sick over here, so there goes all of my big plans for the weekend!

I love it, so beautiful. I know about the separation anxiety. I have that with almost every quilt that comes to me. Especially the super custom quilts, I hope to one day do a custom quilt job for myself. One day I will have time, I hope!

Suzanne said...

How could you NOT have separation anxiety when it comes to your quilts. They are absolutely stunning. Love the colors in this one and the pattern. So pretty.

I just couldn't stand it....having to give them back. Do you keep a record (other than your blog) of quilts you have quilted? PS. I have that border fabric. Sometimes I just look at quilts to see what fabrics I have. It gives me some sort of weird connection with that person.

W. Latane Barton said...

I'm in the same boat. Can't part with them!! Sorry, they just pile up waiting for someone to use them.

countrycosy said...

I wish I could quilt like that: your quilting is fantastic. No wonder the separation is difficult.

Sue said...

They are beautiful. I can unerstand the separation anxiety!

Behind My Picket Fence said...

Well for heaven's sake girl - I'd have serious separation anxiety too!!! You do beautiful work.

Needled Mom said...

I can imagine how difficult it is to seperate yourself from such gorgeous pieces. I would want to keep all of them.

Heidi said...

I can imagine your would hate to see this quilts go on their way. I feel like I am giving a baby away when I give someone a quilt. The quilting is really lovely.

I just finished a second charm quilt for this year's quilt theme in my group. I am going to machine quilt it but it will be plain lines unlike your work. I just do it on my regular machine. I am trying to practice doing machine quilting as I always only hand quilted. I hope I can work on it a little next week.

Hugs ~

Loris said...

Well, I can certainly understand. Lovely quilt and beautiful quilting! I guess you just have to move on the next one :-)

Karen said...

Oh, now this is simply scrumptious!!! I love this quilt from Marcie! You did a super job on the quilting!! It made it perfect!

Stina said...

Lovely quilts... no wonder you have problems!!!! :o)

Pat said...

I'm sure I would have the same problem...IF I could quilt as nicely as you do!!! Your work is impeccable......and I'm sure the owners of those quilts are ecstatic when they get their tops back from you.

Mrs Quilty said...

What a gorgeous quilt and your quilting is wonderful! I'd hate to let loose of that too! I did always feel that when I gave quilts away, but lately, I've been keeping my work.....I'm sure I'll make some in the future for others, but for now, it's my turn.

Jeanette said...

I love how you quilted that! I want to make that quilt and love the way Marcie did the borders. You are an amazing quilter!

Fiesta said...

But just think, there is a bit of you in all those homes now.Your talent is a contribution to society.

MARCIE said...

Oh yes, Fiesta said it! There will be a piece of you coming to my house with each quilt! I am so excited about them. You are sending them back to me, right?

Rebecca P said...

That is such a pretty quilt, I understand how you will miss it. I love the pattern, & the quilting si perfect on it. All I can say is WOW.

Julia said...

You could just say to Marcie, "What Quilt?" :) It must be a strange feeling to send them back. The quilting is half of the quilt, and the part that brings so much life to a flat quilt top. As usual, you've done such a wonderful job!

Salem Stitcher said...

I love the quilting on this one very much. Hmmm...I've got a couple of tops that may need to visit you.

Wendy said...

I can see why it would be hard to send them back.

Quilt Nut said...

your quilting is beautiful and the quilt is stunning. i would have a hard time giving it back too

Judy said...

Very nice, it's always nice to see those yummy colors!

Candace said...

Yikes - what incredible quilting, Mary! Oh how I wouldn't want to separate from that one, either!
Cheers!

Robyn said...

The quilts are stunning and so is your beautiful quilting!
Thanks for stopping by and visiting me and for your lvoely comment :D

WoolenSails said...

That is a beautiful quilt, and I would definitely have a hard time parting with it.

QuiltSue said...

How about just pretending you've never seen it? She must have given it to someone else to quilt? Only trouble with that might be that you can't do it more than once or twice to the same person.

Mary,

Your quilting here is AMAZING!

Laura said...

I think you do beautiful quilting. I'd never thought about how hard it must be for a quilter to return the quilt to its original maker! Interesting!
