Snow Flake 2

Hello Friends! I hope your doing good! I had the opportunity last week to work on this Snow Flake quilt. The colors and texture was so good!

Isn’t the colors just gorgeous? So soft and the Panto she chose was like wind blowing through it! The edge to edge is called Modern Curves. Just a small wave back and fourth.

It’s the first time I used this panto and I love it. Very easy to work with. Thank you Linda for choosing us to work on your beautiful quilt! I loved every minute of it!

Have you voted yet? I’m waiting on some batting to be delivered so I think I’m going to run in and vote! This election is very important one! We need everyone voting!

I hope you have a good day. The election is just about over. Our show is next weekend. AND then I can’t wait to be able to just concentrate on work!

Client Quilt #336

I’ve been busy the last couple weeks! So I thought I would post some great quilt tops I’ve been working on.

I worked on this beauty that came from Louisiana last week. Mary wanted medium dense quilting with Baptist Fans. She needed this quilt back fast as it was for a sick relative. So we worked extra to get it done and right back out to her!

We are getting close to the holidays! With Covid and the Elections I can not even stand to watch TV or check the news. We could use some good news. So. Number one is for me Halloween! I am looking forward to going into my daughters and handing out candy! Hopefully the weather will be dry! We always watch a scary movie and order pizza! Yum!

I hope your doing good and taking care of yourself! I’ve been doing a lot more facials. Oil baths. Painted my toe nails. Anything to make me feel better! I think right now more than ever we need to pay ourselves special attention! If it makes you feel good and takes your mind off of things I say do it!

Ferris Wheel

Hello Friends!

I worked on this beautiful quilt pieced by Mary Beth. The pattern is called Ferris Wheel by Stitched by Susan. We used 2-ply edge to edge on it as she made it for a friend and that is what the friend picked out! Look at that backing! Gah! Beautiful!

Happy Tuesday

Kayaking fun

Hello Sweet Friends! I hope this finds you doing well. I have had the best time with my son home from Pennsylvania. Yesterday we went Kayaking out at the Glendale State Wildlife Preserve. The skies are filled with smoke from the fires out west. It gives this curtain feeling. You know the sun is there but you can’t see it from the blanket of smoke. My heart hurts from the fires and all the terrible things going on in our world right now. This week of taking off work and doing things to distract me from the news and reality has been a God send. Today we are taking off and going to the Fire Tower that is close to us and climbing to the top of it. Another thing that we enjoy doing together!

I have had a few quilts on the longarm since he has been here. And we had our big show at the Chandelier Barn Market this past weekend. We took our quilts that I have been working on over the year. It went really well and I am so thankful for that. We are part of their Christmas show this year too so starting next week I will be working like crazy to get ready for that. I decided I am taking all neutral quilts this time as I really love neutrals and I really want to get to where my quilts are distinguishable from the client quilts I work on. Now to decide what to do with all the colored fabric I have. I guess I will slowly start when winter gets here of putting them into bundles and getting them on Etsy!

Well I hope this finds you doing well. A quick reminder that as of right now we are 2 weeks out on our longarm quilting. So if you are wanting to get a quilt done and back fast get your request in!

Until next time!

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!

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

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!
