Meadowland Quilt

Good morning friends! We survived our show this weekend and we are going to be working on a quilt top today, resting some, and watching some football!

I pieced this Meadowland myself. I love all the gold tones and fall colors. It’s my favorite time of the year as I really love the color orange right now! I got the bundle of fabric from Southern Charm Quilts and it was just the perfect match of fabrics. She has lots of fabric and some really cool patterns. January I want to make her Anthology quilt!

We are also super excited to be working on Suzy’s quilt top from Suzy Quilts. It’s from her Shine sew along and I can’t wait to get it on the LongArm!!

We also have 3 tshirt quilts and 5 full quilt finishes to get done by Christmas so with that being said our cut off for Christmas delivery is November 15. After that I can’t promise I will get the quilts back but I sure as heck will try!

All well workshop has a beautiful pattern for quilted coats and we will be working on these for our next fall show. We will have a long and short version. I’m super excited about that! I want one for myself so bad that I can’t wait to get started on them! Do you prefer shirt or long?

Well I am off of here now. Must pickup and cleanup the house from being gone all weekend. We hope you have a great Sunday!

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!

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!

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?

Coral and Co

We had the opportunity to work with Shelly from Coral & Co on her new pattern. She contacted us wanting us to longarm quilt her quilt top and we were super excited. The pattern is called Tinsel Time and it is the sweetest holiday quilt pattern. It is simplistic and very modern. I love that about it. But at the same time you could use some pattern fabric and make it so fun!

We used the edge to edge design “Let it Snow” by Urban Elementz.

Let me know if you make one! And let us know if you would like us to Longarm Quilt it for you! It would be our honor to help you!

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!

Happenings!

Happy Sunday friends!

I hope all is ok where you are! We are running into this week fast as it’s a short week! Thanksgiving this week with friends and family! We been doing a lot of organizing and cleaning. Today when desperately need to work on the outside of our house. The rain came and the chickens decided the front porch was the place to be. And the leaves are everywhere. This is the first year we have not raked up our leaves. I wanted them left alone to give our log cabin that fallish vibe. Well now they are getting on my nerves! Crazy! So some of them have to go!

I worked on this beautiful quilt this week! Lots of low volume fabric and some pastel colored squares! The pattern is from the book Modern Rainbow. The quilts in it are beautiful! Rebecca has an eye for color. This quilt will be listed in our Etsy shop just as soon as we can get good pictures of it. I used white binding on it. Cotton batting! I used an edge to edge from Karlee Porter Designs. I believe Retro Tile #11.

We do have a busy week here. I simply cannot believe that it is almost Christmas again. Our son from the Air Force will be home December 30th so I am looking forward to that! We of course miss him bunches! We don’t have too many things planned. Mostly just getting as much time as we can with him. He is getting deployed in April so I doubt he will be home any time soon after this visit!

Well I do hope you are surrounded by love and good food! Family and friends!

On a side note we still have a few openings for Christmas quilts if you are needing them LongArmed! Just fill out the form and we will get right back to you!

Thank you so much

Love

Monday Blues………..

Hello Monday……..why are you picking on me?

Do you ever have those kinds of days. Where everything you touch just falls apart. It is one of those days for me. My phone kept going off which distracted me enough to mess up a quilt I was working on. So now it’s going to be seam ripper for me and all that fun stuff. The big dog has been whiny all morning watching for his dad which will not be home till much later. The little dog has had a seizure already today. So…… My anxiety is at an all time high. Maybe it is the weather. I don’t really know. But I do know when days start off like this they are not going to get better until I take some time to take care of me. Hot bath with some epsom salts and lavender oil it is.

American Flag Quilt

So I thought I would talk about my Etsy account. I on occasion have time to make quilts. I love quilting but with the quilting machine taking up much of my time I don’t get to quilt as much as I would like to. But when I do I am always trying out a new edge to edge design on the LongArm. Which is good for you! Because I certainly don’t need all of these quilts! So I have some of them slowly getting listed on my Etsy account for sale!! You can find a link to the shop here or on the home page of website here.

Sprinkle of flowers Quilt
Tye Dye Quilt

Keep watching as we will slowly be adding more quilts at some great prices for those Christmas Gifts. To yourself, or to a loved one!

Lots of love
