Blanket Parade

Howdy Girls!! 
In-laws still here. ;o}

Yes...I need to paint all the ballister rails Swiss Coffee White still.

But, could you just see past that and look at my lovely blanket parade?
There is not even 1 red rose on that multi-colored afghan but there was 1 made with only red roses on it that I let go of...I know, I know.  But, how many dozens can you keep in a little cottage?

The lil' guy is a baby quilt Mother-in-law made for my oldest that will be 13 soon.

The gorgeous "Texas style" red, white and blue pin-wheel Mother-in-law made for hubby and I years ago.  I think she appreciates that I have them on display.

Texas Love to all of ya!!

Let's head over to see REDs at Sue Loves Cherries for


  1. What an amazing way to display your blankets! You could have an ever-changing collection up there. I especially love that red, white and blue one!
    Happy REDnesday!

  2. Denise..I love the quilts!! My mother-in-law is a huge quilter also.
    I see you have my blog button on the side..why is Miss Sweet Bee Cottage under it?

  3. I love that you display these treasures where everyone can see them. You're lucky to have them!

  4. Wonderful blankets, I wasn't even thinking about your ballisters until you mentioned it.

    Have a great day :-)

  5. I think I've been to Clear Lake City. Is that anywhere near League City, TX? We lived in Webster, TX for about 5 months when I was a little girl and my dad's church was in one of those two towns...can't remember which. We went to NASA's MSC every Sunday after church. It was only about a mile from Webster. I was 8.
    Love your quilts and afghan :) Happy Reds~

  6. I love how you have all your quilts/afgans displayed. That red, white and blue quilt is just gorgeous!! I wish my mother-in-law would make me one!!!!
