My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Teresa Coleman!!!

Teresa Coleman (kangaroo kate, #1506) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning an Expert Level Quilting Merit Badge!

“I have made a few quilts over past 4 years. I gave 4 of them to friends. I am about to start another soon. My main style is appliqué with pieced blocks. Most have some embroidery on them and some have fabric painting. I did a history quilt that was entered in our state fair and got a ribbon. It had two sides—one was the Statue of Liberty and the other had blocks showing history events in America.

They all turned out good; sometimes, you don’t know how a quilt will look when finished. I put it on a quilt frame and roll it as I go. I work from an idea in my head and go from there. My friends that I surprised and gave a quilt to were speechless.

This one had a poem called “The Rainbow Bridge.” It was for a friend whose special wallaby died. She had raised him from a pinky joey (one with no fur). There were a variety of methods used on this one. You will find that I do a lot of kangaroo-theme quilts.”

    Congratulations Teresa! Your Wallaby quilt is very creative and beautiful and what a touching and lovely gift to give your special friend. It is truly a treasure!

  2. ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE. Is it legal to have a pet wallaby in the USA, I had no idea that they could be kept as pets. but a very creative and touching gift for your friend.

    My favorite place to nap is in the swing on the back deck.

    I’m a quilt lover. Having grown up in the midwest, quilts were always available to be snuggled under or at the foot of the bed to keep your toes warm during those cold winter nights.

    I love to snuggle up under the “love quilt” (my great grandmother made it) with my grandson Owen for a quick snooze in the “kids room” at our place. This room is specifically geared for the grandchildren and a quick nap under the quilt while watching a movie is the perfect retreat! Grandsons and quilts – a perfect blend for this grandma!

    During the month of May, my favorite place to nap is in my lounge chair with a ‘just hatched’ chick under my chin, an electric cover set on low over my chest and a ‘peep, peep, peep’ as the chick, only hours old, snuggles near my face. We both nap, off and on. Being born is a tiring job!
