Beautiful Day

Hello!

Worked on this beautiful quilt. We debated on the blue thread but once it started quilting out it was just beautiful.

The fabrics all are Art Gallery Fabrics. All the colors came together so perfect. One quilt I do not want to give back! The edge to edge design is called Grace.

Another beautiful quilt that came out with such pretty texture. The white thread really popped on this one. The edge to edge design is called Tropical.

I worked on one of my quilts this morning. I still need to get the binding on it but I am so in love with it. The background color is a very soft pink from Kona Cotton.

Now I’m off to get cleaned up for the day. I started at 4am, so I am hoping to get a nap in today!! Fingers crossed!

Thank you for checking out my quilts!

Publication

We are so excited to announce that one of our quilts we Longarmed is on the cover of Love Patchwork and Quilting this month! We worked with Wendy from New York at The Weekend quilter. She designed the quilt and the bag that goes with the quilt. When she wanted us to LongArm both quilt and bag we were so happy to help!

You need to pick up a copy this month. You can get it at Barnes and Noble and Joanns or you can Subscribe at their website. The pattern to make the bag and quilt will be in the magazine!

We used Mod 60’s Butterflies as the edge to edge and staggered them. I think it turned out beautiful but then the quilt itself is beautiful so it all came together perfectly!

The publication will be, if not already, released in the UK and the USA. Get your copy and let me know what you think about it!

Have a good Hump Day! I’m off for that second cup of coffee and then heading to the studio. I have two quilts to get done today.

I hope wherever you are you have a great day!

Client quilt

Hello!

I worked on this client quilt this week. It came all the way from Canada. Our first out of country quilt!

It’s very beautiful in colors of cream and beige on the front and a sweet pattern fabric on the back. The pattern is the Deco quilt pattern from Lo and Behold Stitchery. Definitely a beautiful pattern that I would love to make.

The client picked out Clam Glam Deco edge to edge design by Karlee Porter Designs. This was such an easy edge to edge to work with. They clicked right up in place and I never had any issue when I forwarded the quilt. I am definitely going to be using it on my quilt top that is waiting to be quilted.

We’ve had the best time here with our Airman being home. The time has flown as it always does. I heard a saying the other day in one of my books. The days are long but the years are short. Isn’t that the truth!

I’m going to be starting a quilt this week for a daughter who lost her dad. We are using his Hawaiian style shirts and she’s picked out the Joy Pattern.

This is a free pattern on the AGF website. I had a client use the pattern and I can’t wait to see how it is going to turn out. I love being able to make quilts. I don’t usually have time to work on too many myself so this will be a nice day on Thursday to cut this out and get it pieced!

What are you working on? Any plans for an end of summer trip? I’m hoping that me and Mark can get away to Lake Erie or somewhere where there is water! It would be nice if the borders would open so we could go into Canada.

It’s early morning here where I am so I am off to get another cup of coffee and get to work! Have a great day!

New work!

Hello Friends!

Hope you are doing great. We’ve been preparing for summer. Yes! And working on a lot of beautiful quilts! This purple is the backing of a t-shirt quilt that was sent in. She chose Cake Walk as the edge to edge design. It’s perfect for holding those t-shirts in place!

My friend Janice pieced this quilt. I love the color so much. I think it has a vintage feel to it! We used Keryn’s Chevron on it! This edge to edge is so unique and pretty.

This is a quilt that I pieced for a test pattern! I’m loving the colors and texture on this one so much! I used 60’s Mod Butterflies as the edge to edge and it just really pops! Such a great pattern also.

Client quilt that came in. We used Swirly Gig 1 on it and geez I love it so much! So much texture! If you know me you know green is my favorite color so this one was fun! I added the binding to this one per client request.

This client seen the green quilt with the Swirly Gig 1 and decided she wanted to switch to it too!! It just makes the quilt pop I think!

This quilt sent in is the Voyage Pattern by Suzy Quilts. The soft colors were so good! The client chose Loopy Leaf as the edge to edge. I think it turned out perfect!!

Well we hope you have a great day filled with lots of fun and love!

Picnic in the Park Quilt

Saturday is my most favorite day. We rest. We love. We eat. Today on the forecast is rain. So today we really rest.

I worked on this client quilt this week. The pattern is called Picnic In The Park. It is so beautiful and I can just imagine actually taking a picnic with this quilt. I definitely want to make one myself!

We used Baptist Fans on it with white thread. I added binding to it sent in with the quilt. Pretty black with white polka dots! Perfect for this colorful quilt!

I hope you have a great Saturday doing some pampering and resting! Filled with love and peace!

Matrikin Quilt

Hello friends!

I hope you are all doing well! I got released from physical therapy on my arm this week so I’m very happy about that! Have my last doctor appt. and X-ray next week! Phew glad that’s all over with!

I worked on this beautiful client quilt this week. The colors and pattern were gorgeous! We used the Bauhaus panto and it turned out so pretty! What do you think?

If you’ve been hesitating to send your quilt top in now is a really good time. Summer will be getting filled up and right now we’re at just two weeks out! I would love to help you get your quilt top done and made into a quilt. We will even bind it for you if you want!

The weather is great here and I cannot believe how green everything is getting! Hopefully I can get out there some today. It’s cloudy but that’s ok! How is your weather?

Have a great day!

Texture!!

I love it when my client wants some really good texture. We choose the edge to edge Compass and we got that texture. We used a pretty beige colored thread. It just pops on this navy blue backing.

I have a lot of people ask me about the different density for quilting. This quilt is definitely dense quilting. With dense quilting your going to get a heavier stiff blanket. But once it’s washed your going to get some great crinkling.

It’s a raining day and cooler here. They are talking snow this week. We are not looking forward to that since we’ve had some very warm spring days already. But it is what it is!

Have a great day!

Life

Hello friends! It’s been a bit.

We’ve had broken bones, broken machines, broken relationships, and now a broken bed.

Life has been crazy. So we’ve been a little silent. But not too worry we are still working in the background. I’m going to try this week to get better at posting.

My arm is doing so much better. This week most all of the pain is gone and I have pretty good range of motion. Can’t wait to get in the water where I can really work it out.

My machine is working really good too after having a fit and blowing her encoders. Being down two weeks was stressful for me in the beginning but I used the time to make a test pattern and now I can’t wait to have time to get it quilted!!

I hope life has been good to you. I feel like I’m mentally recovering from all of the stuff this year has thrown at us. Mentally it’s still hard for me to leave the house alone but I can tell I’m getting better about it. Do you struggle with mental stuff? I have found that really pampering myself, praying, and meditation helps a lot of the time. I am able to venture outside and sit in the sun now and that feels really good. It’s baby steps and looking toward the future with hope and trust.

Crazy times we live in!

Straight line quilting

Happy Saturday friends! I wanted to share this beautiful client quilt I worked on. She wanted straight line quilting and it turned out perfect. I was a little nervous at first but her quilt was very squared so it worked out really good!

Update on LongArm. Still in shop but planning on having it home Wednesday and back up and running! Thank you to all for being so patient!

Headed outside to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. Have a great Saturday!!

Happenings!

Phase Quilt

Hello friends!

Been kind of quiet on here but we’ve been working on some stuff that we cannot post till after July! Big fun stuff!

This week gets back to normal and playing catch up on quilts we have in here.

We’re having lots of sunshine in Indiana and we are so grateful for that! I worked on this Phase quilt last year. You can get the pattern at Modern Handcraft. It’s a fun one especially if you like curves!

My arm is healing and I’m thankful for that! It looks crazy but it is what it is! Meaning the bone has healed all jammed into the socket. I will loose some rotation on it but I’m working really hard in pt to get as much use out of it that I can!

I’m headed to Florida in June with my sister and I’m so super excited I can’t stand it!! Fun stuff! I can not wait to feel the heat and hear the water!

I used the edge to edge City of Light on this quilt! All fabrics are Kona Cottons. My favorites!!

Well hoping you have a great day!
