Client Quilt 135

Hello Friends! Check out this beautiful Meadowland quilt I got to work on that was pieced by Jane. The fabrics are so pretty. Jane chose the edge to edge Triple Clamshell by Karlee Porter Designs.

Isn’t that backing just adorable too. I really never use the color yellow but this is making me change my mind!

I hope all is well in your neck of the woods. I have been busy and while I’ve been busy I have been taking a class from Jenna Kutcher and listening to her podcast. She gives really good solid advice for small business owners. Check her out! What are some of your favorite podcasts? Let me know so I can check them out!

Till next time

Inspiration Quilt & Client Quilt

I found this week that I had lost my inspiration for making a quilt. I cannot remember the last time I made one and I have a couple of test patterns coming up so I needed to jump back into it. So I pulled all my flower scraps out and did 9 inch blocks and pulled this quilt top together. I used the Compass edge to edge on it and I am loving how it turned out. I just need to get the binding done on it and it is headed to its new home. The lady has cancer and I hope the flowers brighten her day!

This is a client quilt I worked on. I have done a few for her. She likes her quits quilted very dense. Just look at all that texture on the back. I love it. I think the quilt itself was just beautiful and the quilting just adds the final touch!

It is raining here in Indiana like monsoon rain. We have had to empty our pool three times already as it was too full. It needs it again. I know the corn needed the rain but now I am ready for it to go on. I need to see some blue skies!! I hope you day is filled with sunshine and good deeds!

Love

Hello Friends!

I hope your having a great day! Things are good here. I just busted another toe, but that is like perfectly normal for me. So life goes on. It helps having a high pain tolerance! But enough about me. How are you doing? How is your world? How is your mental health? The corona virus seems to be taking front and center again and now all the schools are trying hard to figure out how to get the kids back to school. I don’t agree with that. If your a parent how do you feel about sending your kids back to school?

I was lucky enough to get to work on this beautiful quilt by Amanda @Quiltcakes! It was so gorgeous and we picked out Crystalline for the edge to edge design. Amanda makes beautiful quilts that are very square. The edge to edge lined up perfectly and never went off the quilt once! She inspires me! It turned out perfect. But the quilt was already perfect so it’s to be expected.

My birthday is this month so I am going to be having a big give away on my Instagram. So make sure you are following me over there! User name is Lavenderfieldsco.

This week we are quilting away on client quilts. I am cutting out a quilt. Something I have not done in a long time. I am ready to get a quilt top done and on the machine. I have some edge to edge designs that I am wanting to try. What is your favorite E2E design? Do you send your quilt tops out to a longarm quilter? I did a few times before I recieved my long arm machine. I just love how they crinkle up after their wash! A good longarm quilter is like putting sprinkles on a beautiful quilt top!

Well I hate to spew and run but………… my afternoon coffee is waiting on me!

Client Quilt 102

Hello Friends!

We hope this finds you all doing well!

We are starting to get really busy with holidays coming up so we have been doing some thinking! Which is good for you guys! We’ve decided to drop our rates to .17 per square inch through the holidays and you will still get free shipping with an order over $100.00. Also the shipping fee is now $15.00. That will get you a tracking number so you can track your quilt and be on the look out for it the day is scheduled to be delivered! That is a sweet option!

Above is a client quilt I did. It was just beautiful! The colors, the fabric, the design. The quilt was one of my favorites. We quilted it with Cracked Ice by Three Sisters Fabrics. We were very excited to work on this quilt and very grateful!

We hope that you all have a great day! If you have any questions please feel free to email us or contact us here on the contact page!

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 wanted to share this beautiful Vintage Lace quilt that my client sent me to longarm quilt. The colors of fall mixed with the blacks made it so classic. She choose edge to edge design City of Light by Karlee Porter Designs. And to pick it up a notch she choose a gold thread. Stellar! The quilt pattern Vintage Lace can be found at Lo and Behold Stitchery. Brittany has quite a few fantastic modern quilt patterns! Enjoy the pictures!

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

Lisa

Red, White, and Blue

Patriotic Quilt I Longarmed for our Local quilt shop. I used Midnight Sparkle for the edge to edge design.

Another Quilt I did for the local Quilt shop. I used the Baptist Fans edge to edge on it. I love how both of these quilts turned out. Fantastic don’t you think?

Hope you are having a good day! This Corona Virus stuff that is hitting has gotten a lot of people on edge! I think it is going to get worse before it gets better. Stay safe and Stay Home! Make those quilts!

Love

Lisa

Quilts of Valor

Hello Wednesday friends! I hope this finds you doing well. Times have been busy here. We are currently working on quilts, baby quilts with crib bedding and such for our shows this fall! We will be at the Chandelier Barn Market this fall and Christmas! We are so excited!

We’ve had the opportunity this week along with our regular Longarm Quilting to work on this Quilt of Valor! These quilts that come from the Quilts of Valor are donated to a veteran. The quilt maker volunteers her time and the Longarm quilter donates her quilting and batting. We all work together to make a large quilt to be given to the Veteran at a little celebration! It is another way to give back and we are all about that!

We also obtained some old vintage quilted tops. In fact they are handstitched and they are amazing! We are going to be repairing these and quilting them and making quilted coat tops! This is another one of our missions that we are working on. For every 10 quilted coats we sell we will be personally handing out a coat to a homeless person in Indiana. We hope that you will help us with this mission by donating quilt tops for this project! As a quilter and person with a heart for serving and caring for others I believe this will be a good way to give back. IF you would like to personally get involved please send me an email at lavenderfieldsblankets@gmail.com or through our website here on the contact page!

Hand Stitched Quilt tops from Stitch and Found.

We would also love to be able to supply a hat and gloves with these coats. So if you would like to donate those that would be great. We will start handing out the coats this fall for the winter season 2020-2021. We would love to now but it just takes time and resources and those are being used in other areas too. But we should definitely be up and running with the coats this fall!

Well I guess that is about it for now! We are working on two quilt alongs and will have that information for you tomorrow! Have a great day!
