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

Client Quilt 117

Hello Friends!

Its my birthday! Yes! A big one at that. I turned the big 55 today. It seems unreal to be 55 years old. I think the older you get the faster time flies. But considering all the things going on in the world right now I feel very blessed to reach my birthday! Honestly with the covid virus hit the US I was wondering if I would make it. It sounded, and still does, so scary. The first couple months I had very major anxiety. I think we all did. Especially with the lock downs. It still is very scary if you ask me.

Anyway enough gloom. I was able to work on this beautiful quilt pieced by Shelly from Coral & Co. This beautiful pattern, Tinsel Time Quilt, will be coming out August 3rd, 2020. I just love the simplistic lines to the quilt and pattern. The options are limitless on the colors and patterns you could use for this quilt. I am sure she will be doing a quilt a long with the release of the pattern. So watch her website or follow Shelly on Instagram!

I used the edge to edge design Let It Snow by Urban Elementz. It is one of my favorites for holiday quilts. It stitches out so pretty and flowing. Very easy pattern to work with.

Happy Saturday!

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!

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.

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
