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!!
Sunday night football and Sunday night our hot water tank passed over. It’s been giving us fits so it will be nice to have a new one. Unfortunately we will have to move out stacked washer and dryer to fix it. Life. It’s a never ending story of good and bad. I try to always just look at the good and not worry about the rest. It is what it is!
But look at this beautiful Snowflake quilt I got to work on! The fabrics were gorgeous. All those pretty purples I just loved! It has a pretty snowflake flannel backing and lime green binding. I love how it turned out. It was a lot of fun!
We have a very busy week ahead. I’m trying to stick to my calendar of quilts as much as I can. Hopefully tomorrow won’t be a big long ordeal at Lowe’s and I can get home at a descent time. But really it’s Lowe’s. So. Much. Stuff. I love! I’m thinking Christmas lights. A couple new plants! Oh yes! Do you like to go to the home shops? I love it. Every time I get at least one to two plants! Of course I need them. I only have like 20 in our small house lol. 🤷♀️
I started a new book this weekend. It is called Illusions by Richard Bach. It really hit me toward the end how we see the world and how we have so much control over that with our minds. I love books like that. I believe our minds are so powerful. I’m going to start sharing my books here. Outside of sewing my books are my next favorite!!!
We are suppose to be getting snow tomorrow and my fingers are crossed that it does snow!! The first snow of the season is always so exciting! I would prefer to be in Florida living but since we are still here than I say bring on the snow! Please!
I’m working on a Gather quilt. It’s Suzy’s newest pattern. I had really hoped to work on the top this weekend but things got away from me. So hopefully this week while I’m on the Longarm I can get it pieced!
Well I hope you have a great Sunday night. Signing off here cold in Indiana.
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!!
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!
Hello Friends! Welcome to my second Snowflake quilt using the pattern by Nicole at Modern Handcraft! I have to admit. The second one was just as much fun as the first one! I’m really thinking about doing one in all neutrals. I’m thinking a white snowflake and a cream background! What do you think? I have really been dreaming in neutrals….. lately.
This custom ordered quilt has now gone on to her new home. I hope she is loved there as much as she was here! Did you know we do custom orders? If you see a quilt you would like we can get the pattern and work with you on colors and make it a reality. Just leave us a comment on our comment form page and we can talk if this is something you would be interested in!
What are you working on now? Have you worked a Snowflake quilt? There are so many beautiful ones if you want to check them out with the hashtag #snowflakesewalong !!
Well it’s very cold here and we are planning on staying in and staying warm today! Happy Saturday Friends!
Hello Everyone! I was honored to be asked to test this pattern by Nicole at Modern Handcraft. I choose the 4 color version with Catherine picking out the 4 shades of red. It turned out perfect! We really love it and we really love the pattern.
The quilt pattern comes in several versions. A one color version with the snowflake in white (or if you were creative you could make your snowflake in any color you choose). The next option is a scrappy version and finally the one I did, a 4 color version! It’s very easy to put together. My advice is mark your pieces: I use sticky notes and straight pins to keep all of my pattern pieces in order.
Nicole is releasing the pattern on October 1st and doing a sew along starting October the 7th. I’m will also be doing that, but sticking with a more neutral pallet. I can’t decide if I want to do the white snowflake with the neutral scrappy or do the neutral colored snowflake with an all white background. What do you think? You can purchase the kit which includes the pattern and the fabric you need here.
We hope you love this pattern as much as we do and join the sew along.
