A tale of two Coxcombs!

Hello Friends,

A few weeks ago, I shared with you Jean’s class sample from my online Learn to Machine quilt class.  Click here to see more pictures of Jean’s quilt.

Jean is a very busy and productive quilter.  She recently sent me pictures of her spring purple/green version of my Coxcomb and Berries quilt.  Thanks for being willing to share your work, Jean.


Jean left a comment on the post about her “Learn to Machine Quilt” class sample, and said, “And, yes, you can teach an old dog new tricks, since I am over 70!”  I love love love that attitude and aspire to be that adventurous in learning new things when I am 70!!!


Keep quilting, Jean – I have an inclination your home will be filled with many more beautiful quilts!


Jean’s version of Coxcomb & Berries, compared to mine, is another example of fabrics making all the different in how a quilt looks!  The following is my original.  Click here to view more pictures.  Click here for a previous post on fabrics, fabrics, fabrics making all the difference!


Thanks for stopping by.  I am so glad you did.  I wish you a lovely weekend!  See you next week.

  1. Hi Wendy: You can add my name to the “over 70” list. I agree that you can teach an old dog new tricks. I have been quilting for more than 30 years and started fmq’ing about 20 years ago (by hand). I loved the look and was determined to learn how to do it. That being said, I am enrolled in I think 7 Craftsy classes, including yours, and never fail to learn something new from each and every one of them. Goes to show us “old broads” have still got it. lol
    Thanks, Jackie

  2. Jean, your work is amazing!!! And Wendy you are such an inspiration. After seeing both of your quilts I am going to pick through my stash this weekend to make one of these quilts myself!!!

  3. Once again….an awesome post! Thank you Jean! Love your ‘take’ on the quilt….That’s what makes this art form so great—-it’s always an “original”! High five to you both!!!!! Hugs….Doreen
