Quilt Design, Quilting, UFO's

Quilting and Craft Shows

At a recent craft show in upstate New York, I came across an interesting display of well executed quilts.  Carol Hesselink of cmhCreations displays a number of  quilts designed by her after being inspired by a specific fabric.  001She then adds coordinating and complimentary fabrics.    In many of her quilts, the pattern or technique becomes the inspiration.

Check out some of her quilts on line at:  Pictue Trail; member name cmhCreations.  Carol’s creativity fosters itself in many different ways such as when she designs an item made of  ‘fabric leftovers’  as she makes a unique bag or tote.  I’m sure her stack of UFO’s is quite a bit smaller than mine.  Quite a crafty lady!

Each of Carol’s quilts comes with a digital photo card of the quilt.  Not only does the recipient get a beautiful handmade quilt, but also receives a matching note card.  She also packages and sells note cards separately.


A brief demonstrations on paper piecing at her booth shows how easy paper piecing is to do .005009

I enjoyed meeting her and her husband, Chuck at the show.  He praises  her accomplishments as he shows off some of her quilts,  “See what can be made from scraps!”

I also learned that they live in Amsterdam NY – just a few miles from my daughter’s home.  Small world!

There is always time to quilt!
