Stella Star 2

Hello friends!

I hope everyone is doing good on this Sunday night. We are currently watching the Space X take off. My brother is so lucky he lives right by the place they lift off from! I can’t even imagine seeing that! I just think it’s amazing that we can put people in space and get them home safely. Pray that all goes well with their trip!

I got to work on this quilt sent to me by a client out in Utah. The quilt pattern is the Stella Star by Jenna Luedecke Designs. We used the edge to edge Autumn Wind. I just think it is beautiful! The fabrics in themselves were gorgeous and I’m going to look into the pattern one she used. I understand it comes in a burnt orange, with orange being my favorite color right now!

And what about this quilting? I think the design just pops off the quilt and just adds to the beauty of the whole thing. She used a beautiful punch of a bright yellow backing. I can’t wait to see what binding she chooses.

She sent me two quilts and I just had so much fun working on them. I will blog about the other one at a later date. Their just too pretty to put them both together! They deserved their own space!

We’re getting excited about the holidays here. I’m trying out some new recipes this week to see if they will work for Thanksgiving dinner. One is sweet potato’s where you add brown sugar but also Sunny Delight. I’m so anxious to try it! It looked Devine! Do you have special things that you always have for your dinner? Also, have you put your tree up yet? I have not. I’m wanting to go with all pink lights so I need to get them ordered yet.

Well I’m off here to watch the launch and to make supper. I hear my belly starting to growl! I hope you have a great week!

Client quilt #389

Hello friends!

Happy Monday, or is it Monday Blues? It seems to change as the day goes on here. I went into today feeling powerful and ready to take it on. Now I’m dragging. Honestly I think it is because I skip breakfast and then eat lunch too late. I’m trying to get better at that. My body only eats when it’s hungry so planning 3 meals a day does not work for me. Or maybe it’s the cooler weather. 🤷‍♀️ How are you feeling? How are you adjusting to the cooler temperatures?

Well my friend Sammy could tell us all about that. She sent this beautiful quilt all the way from Alaska! I think that’s the furthest one to come in. The pattern is the Stella Star and her fabrics are just adorable. If you look closely the backing is all skies! We used Let is Snow on this one. I really like how it came out. She’s now back in Alaska with Sammy!

We are getting ready for our 2nd show this weekend. It’s called The Chandelier Barn Market. We always have a great time and meet lots of new friends and see lots of old friends. We get a bunch of fresh air and some really good food truck food! I can’t wait for that part! If your in Southern Indiana it’s worth getting bundled up and coming out to. It’s in Montgomery Indiana.

Back to the LongArm!

Have a great day!

Stella Star plus more!

Hello! Good Morning! Guess what? I made a quilt! It has been a while. But it was so much fun. This quilt pattern is the Stella Star. The star parts are paper pieced. First time I have done paper piecing and it was so much fun! I am ready to do it again! If you have not tried it I would start out on this pattern. Jenna explains so well in her pattern how to do it. I also found a really good YouTube video that helped me a lot. I will link it here! If you have been quilting a while you will love this. It is something new to learn and it kind of feels like you have leveled up! You know what I mean?

I chose all neutrals for this quilt. I love how all the soft colors turned out. I think the only thing I would change is the color of the star outline. But other than that I am pretty happy with the choices. I used Marmalade as the edge to edge design and added my binding on the back and brought it around the front like I do and machine stitched it down. I love doing it that way. Gives the front of the quilt such a perfect look! What do you think?

I worked on this Meadowland Quilt this weekend. What beautiful fabrics! It is the second one I have done for Mary and she always picks the best fabrics. They always have animals in them. The first one you can find on here she used a Birch Fabric and they were all birds. It was adorable. Kind of makes it hard to send the quilts back. She chose the edge to edge design Flicker Flame. I think it turned out perfect!

I worked on this Christmas Joy quilt that was sent in also. Is it not so pretty? And that backing fabric was flannel and so nostalgic. She chose the edge to edge pattern Loop D Loop and I just love it. It is similar to Midnight Sparkle. Just a lot more sparkle! I will defiantly be using this one again!

I hope you have a great day where ever you are. It is starting to cool off here and yesterday the wind was blowing in a cold front. The leaves were blowing everywhere and the sun shining on the trees was just breath taking with all the beautiful fall colors! It is a blessing being in an area where the seasons are a big change. But my heart is still in Tampa Florida. I fell in love with Clear Water Beach and that area when i went down there this summer. I dream of a condo on the beach. Where I can see the ocean and hear it. I can sew and people watch and maybe makes some friends through the window. We can dream right?!

Ok still dreaming of Florida but getting off of here now so I can get to work. I have a Knitted Star quilt I am going to be working on, it is a Christmas Gift so I will not be posting pictures until after Christmas. Have a great day!

Christmas Cardinals E2E

I also did the binding on the quilt. Don’t you just love that backing! Gah!

Hello Monday! Hello Christmas Cardinals.

I got to work on this quilt top today. Is it not beautiful. I am not sure of the name of the pattern. I will get that information tomorrow. But it is really beautiful and unique! The colors and the pattern is just so cool. I would definitely love to have time to make one. We used the edge to edge Christmas Cardinals in a pretty big print. They are hard to see on that white but it turned out real cute. You can definitely see the cardinals on the white really well.

I am finally getting caught up (hopefully) tomorrow on the Stellar Star quilt! I have been excited to start on it. I am going to read the pattern over tonight and I always highlight the size and directions that I need. I am testing another one of Amanda’s patterns this week also! So lots of fun stuff to work on while I longarm quilt client quilts.

We are also a sponsor for one week for the Shine quilt pattern sew along that Suzy @SuzyQuilts is putting on starting September 23 I do believe! The pattern is another really cool one and I will doing one of those too. I need quilts for my Christmas show so these three will be perfect addition.

Ok………….. I really don’t know anymore. I am really just kind of tired and blah today. The cooler weather is making me want to stay in bed and read all day. Anyone else?

Jenna Luedecke Designs

Jenn from Mountain View Quilter made this gorgeous test version of the Stella Star.

Hello Sweet Friends! I would like to introduce you to my friend Jenna of Jenna Luedecke Designs. She is a pattern maker and just released her new pattern Stella Star! It is a beginner friendly pattern for Foundation Paper Piecing. If you have never done it before now is a great time to learn! In fact she is getting ready to start her Stella Star Quilt A Long. I joined it. I’ve been wanting to learn how to paper piece for a long time. I’ve looked over the pattern and it completely looks doable for us newbies! Jenna also makes stunning quilts that I have had the opportunity to work on!

This is one of her quilts I worked on. The fabrics are from the Rifle Paper Co. Their fabric is so drool worthy and if money was no option I would have it all. Just check out that backing. We used the edge to edge Baptist Fans by Three Sisters Fabric. I think it turned out beautiful!

This is another one of Jenna’s that I worked on. The pattern is called Heart2Heart and it is by LaFortuna Designs, it is a new pattern coming out and you can watch her Etsy for the release. We used the edge to edge by Karlee Porter Designs called Mexican Tile 2. I love how this turned out! Perfect. I was a little skeptical at first but once I started I knew this was the best edge to edge for this pattern. Her colors are gorgeous. This quilt is beautiful wouldn’t you agree?

Well it is Thursday friends. We have almost made it to another weekend. It is crazy how fast the weeks are flying by. I wish they would slow down. I have so much I want to do, need to do, want to read, and want to paint. There is just now enough of me to get around and this week my neck and back have no been cooperating with me. Phew!

I hope you all have a great day!
