Homespun Ragged Quilt. 76″x86″ $840.00

These Handmade Quilts were made by Miriam Tucker, Sarah’s Mom.
Miriam was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in 2018.
She has outlived her doctors prognosis in 2018 of only living 3 month to 3 years.
She was living alone for quite a few years after my Dad passed away.
By 2019 with her health deteriorating fast she wanted to go to the nursing home of her church community.
At this nursing home the residents are encouraged to keep doing their handcrafts as they can.
They gave her space for her sewing machine and serger.
My four sisters and I try to find sewing projects to keep her busy’
In 2021 a neighbor asked me to clean out her mother’s sewing room.
This gave us ample fabric to give mom projects.
My one sister who lives close to the nursing home supervises the projects although we all pitch in to give advise and see there is projects on hand!
All of these quilts are available.
We have resorted to machine quilting as that is what is available in our area. Also Mom admits the machine sewing will hold everything together better.
There is a very limited amount of hand quilters in our area.
Some of these quilts are hand tied or knotted with yarn or crochet cotton.
Sales tax is added.
Shipping will be added. I can hand deliver any quilt to any of the shows listed in the links above.
If you would like any more pictures of any quilt please contact us.
Thank you!

So here is the current list of large quilts. We have plenty of smaller quilts on hand also.

We cut the patches for this Homespun Quilt from color coordinating homespun fabric, as Mom doesn’t enjoy cutting striped fabric.
Mom did all the sewing.
This type of quilting is a machine quilted star in the center of each patch.
This is a weighty quilt due to the double seams and the bit of quilt filler inside each patch.
Mom then snipped the raw edges.
We washed and dried the quilt several times until the edges “ragged”.
So this is reversible double to queen size quilt.

This next Quilt is a Chinese Coin Quilt.
We had a lot of precut strips available from the Log Cabin Quilt pieces.
So we gave Mom the challenge of making a Chinese Coin Quilt.
We think she nailed it!
We then had the quilt machine quilted.

Here is the story behind a Chinese Coin Quilt.
In fact, many quilt historians believe that the Chinese coin pattern originates from traditional Chinese currency having been stacked and tied together with a string after counting.
Others believe this design is a nod to an old Chinese motif usually found on decorative baskets.
The Chinese coins’ round form represents heaven, while the square hole in the center represents earth.
Bundles of three, six, or nine Feng Shui coins are typically strung along with a red or yellow ribbon.
So the quilt looks like coins stacked from the side and tied with a cloth.
