Breezy Point

Breezy Point is a signature quilt made to commemorate a week-long, family reunion, held in Minnesota in 2006.

Marilyn and I ironed blocks of muslin on freezer paper to stabilize the fabric for signatures. Each person signed enough blocks to allow each family unit to make a quilt, if they desired.

Each person's block is arranged by age on my quilt. Others arranged theirs by family.

The pattern is Goose Creek. I used muslin and vintage flour sacks that my mother had collected for the blocks. The border utilizes 30s reproduction fabrics. The backing is also scrappy with 30s reproduction fabrics. It measures 60 X 72 inches.

Quilt, Quilt, Quilt, Etc. in Sandy, UT machine-quilted the top.

This quilt was completed in 2007


  1. What a wonderful idea. So how many quilts besides yours way made? Do others in your family also quilt or did you put them together for everyone,and did you include names of those ancestors no longer living?

  2. Very cool idea, I really like this. Did you include names of those ancestors no longer living in your quilt? Did you make them for each branch or are there others in the family who also make quilts?
