Meadowland Quilt

Hello Friends!

I just wanted to share this beautiful Meadowland Quilt that I had the opportunity to quilt. The fabrics are beautiful Birch Organics and Charley Harper Fabrics. They are so sweet on this perfect quilt. I used Clamshell Triple by Karlee Porter Designs and it added just the right amount of texture! This was a hard quilt to send back. I think I just have always loved the Meadowland pattern by Then Came June and the fabrics used in this one had me all mellow and filled with little bird peace!

I hope you have a great 4th of July weekend and a safe one! We are going to be cooking out at home. Sitting in the pool. And spending time with good friends!

Florida and work.

Red, White, and Blue with Midnight Sparkle

Hello Everybody!

Its been so nice hearing from a lot of you that you are finding us thru the Longarm League and loving our little website. My daughter and I work hard to keep this site current as much as we can!

This past week I went to Florida to visit my son who is in the Air Force. There’s a possibility, which it is kept secret till last minute, that he could be getting deployed to the Middle East and I just had to see him before that could possible happen!

He is stationed in Florida right now and let me tell you it’s very hot down there. I have never been south in the summer time. A whole new meaning to the word hot! We had a good time hitting the beaches early and leaving by 1pm. You just about could not hardly walk and breath at the same time after that. Or maybe it was just me lol. Needless to say I came home sporting a lot more sun on my skin!

It was nice to get home albeit a long trip back. It amazes me that you can get there by plane in about 4 hours. But travel to our airport is two hours then two hour flight, lay over, two hour flight. Turned into a 12 hour day getting home. Crazy! But faster than driving the whole way so I am thankful for that!

I got to work on this Quilt of Valor this week. I used the midnight sparkle on it as it shows so pretty on the backing. It was a very pretty pieced quilt and i am thankful every time I get to do one of those!

Well that is all I really know! Headed up stairs to work on a Meadowland Quilt sent in! I hope you all have a great day!

I was able to work up another Trippy Quilt that I am going to call Bohemian Rhapsody! What do you think about that? This quilt top is so colorful and has beautiful rich patterns thru out. It’s the perfect colors of summer! I should have it quilted up this week and in the shop..

If you are interested in making this quilt a part of your family you can send us a direct message here on the contact page! The quilt is 70 X 70 with about 40 different fabrics used to give it color and interest. There are 1,225 two inch squares in this! It will be backed with a beautiful Candy Green Kona Cotton solid.

Amazing Grace Quilt

Hello Friday Peeps!

I don’t know about you guys but this week flew by! I mean like where did it go? I know I spent 10 hours on one quilt top on Tuesday and i think that is where I lost my track of time. Wednesday was resting my mind. So I guess that is where I lost my time! Yikes!

I wanted to talk about this panel i got from Missouri Quilt Co. It is called Amazing Grace. The panel is 54 X 65. So a very nice size. I added a border to it and some very pretty butterflies on the backing. I am sending this quilt to my mom for Mother’s Day. This panel makes a great gift for those you really care about. I’ve already gifted one. I plan on making one for our house soon also! I used Urban Elementz Midnight Sparkle to quilt it. It seems to be my favorite right now!

If you would like a custom quilt with this panel just send us a direct message here on our contact page or an email to lavenderfieldsblankets@gmail.com. It makes a wonderful gift for your family or friends who love God. I hope this quilt brings my mom some comfort during her days!

Much love

Trippy Quilt

Trippy Quilt

Hello Friends!

We were able to get some good pictures of this Trippy Quilt I did. The pattern is by Southern Charm Quilts. The pattern is one of three that come in this package. I wanted to get away from the traditional Trippy Quilts that are out there. They are beautiful! But I wanted to give mine a little bit of bohemain or gypsy feel. The fabrics used in this quilt were all scraps that I have. It was fun going through my scraps and putting all these fun fabrics together!

We are getting very busy with Longarm Quilt jobs and that is super exciting! We are so thankful for our clients. They have been super at referring us and getting us up and off the ground. We also have two shows fast approaching this fall. So most of our quilts on our Etsy have been marked down to make room here in our storage for show quilts! Including this one! You can find it right here!

We are taking our quilts into more of a color scheme for shows. Which I think will make a more cohesive booth space. I am also really feeling very nostalgic for more traditional quilt patterns. What?!? I know crazy!

I cannot wait to start showing you the new quilts coming out! I am super excited! We are also busy busting out some face masks for some businesses!

We hope you are having a great time right now enjoying your family during this time. Pretty soon we will all be back to real life and going in so many different directions. Let’s all make sure we really absorb and relish this time!

Love

Burn Bright Quilt Pattern

Hello Monday!

Unfortunately the this week is the week that is suppose to be the worst for the Corona Virus. I’m praying so hard that after this week we can start getting back to a normal schedule, normal life, and a normal summer. We’ve been very lucky here no one in the family or extended family has gotten sick. I pray it stays that way.

I’ve been using my sewing to keep my mind off of stuff as much as I can. Otherwise it gets too overwhelming. Last week I worked on Modernly Morgan’s new pattern Burn Bright Quilt. It uses big blocks and I really enjoyed working on it. I made the throw size. I think………… it is 61X61. But don’t quote me on that one!

I used pretty colors of teal and blues and a touch of black, all Kona Cotton. The background is a pale blue. I longarmed it with Baptist Fans by Three Sisters Fabric. I love love their edge to edge designs!

Let me know what you think! How are you doing during this crisis? I hope your being safe!

Love

Lisa

Phase Quilt 2

Hello Friends!

As mentioned in an earlier post I pattern tested this Phase Quilt pattern for Modern Handcraft. I did this one recently in twin size. The colors are a pretty dark blue with shades of gray. I think it came out beautifully. I love it so much that I’m thinking it is going on the bed in the spare bedroom of my house!

I used Urban Elementz Midnight Sparkle edge to edge pattern. It gives the effect of the stars and the sky over the moon phases. For someone who is obsessed with the moon I really love this quilt. What do you think of it?

And more importantly how are you doing? This Virus and what I call House arrest is starting to get to a lot of people. I have my waves that come too of pure anxiety. Listening to the news I get the overwhelming feeling that I am going to get this. So, I try and not listen to the news too much. I try and keep myself busy sewing or reading. I am making sure I get outside too for some fresh air. I think that is really important, especially if you deal with anxiety.

I do hope you are all doing good and we here at Lavender Fields send you all loving vibes!!

Love

Lisa

Hello Peeps!

I hope you are doing well today! I was having some major anxiety earlier but I got dressed and got outside and I am feeling a lot better now! I wanted to let you know that I finally got this water color Vintage Lace Quilt all done up and ready for Etsy right here!

I hope you all have a great day and I pray that this Virus goes away soon! I’m ready to get back to normal life!

Love

Phase Quilt Test Pattern

Hello Friends!

I was able to test a new pattern being released by Modern Handcraft. The Pattern is called Phase. Oh my loved every minute of it. I love doing curves and I love love the moon. The pattern is super easy to understand and Nicole has lots of tutorials on doing curves. I am currently working on another one that is large. This one is throw size. I used the edge to edge design called City of Light from Karlee Porter Designs. It turned out beautiful and is now hanging on my quilt rack above my stairs. You can get the pattern here.

We hope that you are all doing well with the Corona Virus quarantine. I know it is very unsettling right now so our suggestion is find something that you love to do and concentrate on that. We are also working on our spring cleaning! Not as much fun as quilting but hey at least it will be done once we get released to be back out in the wild!

Lots of love and peace,

Lisa
