"Top" of the morning to you...

Are you a topper?? I love to make quilt tops and then make more quilt tops and so on and so on. My favorite parts of the quilting process are picking out the fabric, finding the perfect pattern and then piecing the top. The making of the quilt sandwich and the quilting part...hmmm, not so much. Don't get me wrong, I have done my fair share of quilting, especially for gifts. To help ease this topping addiction, I started selling just quilt tops on ebay about 3 years ago. I haven't done it for a long time now, but what a fun process. I sewed my heart out and made a little extra money to buy more fabric!!! Thought I would show you some pictures of tops I've made in the past. Sorry for the quality of the photos...if I only knew I would be blogging in the future!!
This is a Moda Kitty quilt top:

Hope you enjoyed the show and have a great weekend...


  1. woah. How did you do that tiny little last quilt? Really sweet pictures. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Good luck with your start to blogging. I have enjoyed seeing your quilts from the past and look forward to more in the future.
    Best wishes from another Karen ( in Australia).

  3. It's fun to see your quilts instead of just talking about them in the office. I love the pattern that you did twice- the pinwheely one. What is the pattern called?
    Thanks for the push I needed to start my blog.

  4. ooo...some great tops! I love them, especially that itty bitty thing. ANd I am completely with you - I am a topper - would much rather pick the fabric, and make the top than quilt it...


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment...I just love hearing from you!
