Updates for December!

Hello friends!!! I’ve missed you guys! It’s just so crazy in my life right now. I’ve been working to catch up after my brother’s passing and all my heart tests. So I thought I would update everyone on where we are at.

Heart surgery will be December 2nd. I will be down for at least two weeks so outside of the quilts already here. I will not be working at all in December. This is the first Christmas that neither of my boys will be coming home. That means it’s going to be pretty quiet around here. So rest and healing it will be!

So where does that put us with the two quilt alongs that we are sponsoring? Well if you get it here fast this month we’re pushing everything through as fast as we can, all being around heart tests and heart, let’s just say malfunctions. Which can happen at any time until surgery. We’re doing really good.

All other quilts from the quilt alongs with Suzy quilts and with Pear Tree Designs will be finished in January except the winners of the free Longarm. Those will be done in December!! I so can’t wait to see these quilts!

So hopefully that explains a lot but please! If you have any questions feel totally free to email me! We will be locking down the request form the end of November. All contact can be made through our contact page!

Once again Thank You for being so patient with me as 2021 was a crazy year. I’m looking forward to 2022!

Thank you!

Beautiful Day

Hello!

Worked on this beautiful quilt. We debated on the blue thread but once it started quilting out it was just beautiful.

The fabrics all are Art Gallery Fabrics. All the colors came together so perfect. One quilt I do not want to give back! The edge to edge design is called Grace.

Another beautiful quilt that came out with such pretty texture. The white thread really popped on this one. The edge to edge design is called Tropical.

I worked on one of my quilts this morning. I still need to get the binding on it but I am so in love with it. The background color is a very soft pink from Kona Cotton.

Now I’m off to get cleaned up for the day. I started at 4am, so I am hoping to get a nap in today!! Fingers crossed!

Thank you for checking out my quilts!

Client quilt

Hello!

I worked on this client quilt this week. It came all the way from Canada. Our first out of country quilt!

It’s very beautiful in colors of cream and beige on the front and a sweet pattern fabric on the back. The pattern is the Deco quilt pattern from Lo and Behold Stitchery. Definitely a beautiful pattern that I would love to make.

The client picked out Clam Glam Deco edge to edge design by Karlee Porter Designs. This was such an easy edge to edge to work with. They clicked right up in place and I never had any issue when I forwarded the quilt. I am definitely going to be using it on my quilt top that is waiting to be quilted.

We’ve had the best time here with our Airman being home. The time has flown as it always does. I heard a saying the other day in one of my books. The days are long but the years are short. Isn’t that the truth!

I’m going to be starting a quilt this week for a daughter who lost her dad. We are using his Hawaiian style shirts and she’s picked out the Joy Pattern.

This is a free pattern on the AGF website. I had a client use the pattern and I can’t wait to see how it is going to turn out. I love being able to make quilts. I don’t usually have time to work on too many myself so this will be a nice day on Thursday to cut this out and get it pieced!

What are you working on? Any plans for an end of summer trip? I’m hoping that me and Mark can get away to Lake Erie or somewhere where there is water! It would be nice if the borders would open so we could go into Canada.

It’s early morning here where I am so I am off to get another cup of coffee and get to work! Have a great day!

Summertime

We’ve been working hard and enjoying the summer here at Lavender Fields. I spent a couple days in Florida and had the best time. It was a much needed refresh. Since then we’ve been working away.

I worked on this beautiful Voyage client quilt. The fabrics were gorgeous and I love the pattern. The pattern designer is Suzy http://www.suzyquilts.com We used the edge to edge Marmalade on it. It is definitely one of my favorite designs. It’s not too dense but gives great texture!

This beautiful quilt was sent in for us to work some magic on. Can we say Tula Pink fabric is just gorgeous and so is this pattern. It is a free pattern on her website. We used the edge to edge design Abacus Squared. This design gives you great texture and is such an easy design to stitch out.

This Vintage Lace using Baptist Fans turned out great. We gave the fans a higher top and I love how it turned out. This is a very versatile edge to edge design. The next quilt shows how you can spread them wider to get a totally different look. The edge to edge is from Three Sisters fabric. It’s the best design out there. It clicks right together and stitches out so perfectly.

This quilt top was sent in by Shelly at Coral & Co. https://www.coralandco.com/blog/category/quilts/quilt-patterns She will be releasing this pattern and another one this month that is similar but yet different! You’ll definitely want to check them out!

That’s it for today! We are receiving requests for LongArm quilting! If you say you read it here on your request you get free batting! Our way of saying Thank You!

New work!

Hello Friends!

Hope you are doing great. We’ve been preparing for summer. Yes! And working on a lot of beautiful quilts! This purple is the backing of a t-shirt quilt that was sent in. She chose Cake Walk as the edge to edge design. It’s perfect for holding those t-shirts in place!

My friend Janice pieced this quilt. I love the color so much. I think it has a vintage feel to it! We used Keryn’s Chevron on it! This edge to edge is so unique and pretty.

This is a quilt that I pieced for a test pattern! I’m loving the colors and texture on this one so much! I used 60’s Mod Butterflies as the edge to edge and it just really pops! Such a great pattern also.

Client quilt that came in. We used Swirly Gig 1 on it and geez I love it so much! So much texture! If you know me you know green is my favorite color so this one was fun! I added the binding to this one per client request.

This client seen the green quilt with the Swirly Gig 1 and decided she wanted to switch to it too!! It just makes the quilt pop I think!

This quilt sent in is the Voyage Pattern by Suzy Quilts. The soft colors were so good! The client chose Loopy Leaf as the edge to edge. I think it turned out perfect!!

Well we hope you have a great day filled with lots of fun and love!

Beautiful client quilts

Hello friends!

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve updated here. We received our last Covid shot on Friday and it really hit us over the next few days! I was mail just so dizzy and weak. Feeling better today! I did get some work done and thought I would share!

As you can see I’ve been having fun working on some very beautiful quilts! I love the process. From opening the box, ironing if needed, seeing a flimsy quilt top turn into a nice quilt! It’s the most exciting time!

We trim most of our quilts before they leave here. It’s the clients choice. So you can get it back and it’s ready for binding. Some clients want their quilts binded too so they get back a completely done quilt! How fun right!!!

That being all said I’m having my first cup of coffee here. It’s pretty early in Southern Indiana and our temps have been below normal. I’m waiting for that heat and sunshine so bad! I know it’s only May but usually by now we’re having some pretty warm days. How’s your weather where you are at?

I’m hoping you are doing good. I’m off here to get started pretty soon. I have two quilts to finish up today. I can’t wait to show you!

Picnic in the Park Quilt

Saturday is my most favorite day. We rest. We love. We eat. Today on the forecast is rain. So today we really rest.

I worked on this client quilt this week. The pattern is called Picnic In The Park. It is so beautiful and I can just imagine actually taking a picnic with this quilt. I definitely want to make one myself!

We used Baptist Fans on it with white thread. I added binding to it sent in with the quilt. Pretty black with white polka dots! Perfect for this colorful quilt!

I hope you have a great Saturday doing some pampering and resting! Filled with love and peace!

Matrikin Quilt

Hello friends!

I hope you are all doing well! I got released from physical therapy on my arm this week so I’m very happy about that! Have my last doctor appt. and X-ray next week! Phew glad that’s all over with!

I worked on this beautiful client quilt this week. The colors and pattern were gorgeous! We used the Bauhaus panto and it turned out so pretty! What do you think?

If you’ve been hesitating to send your quilt top in now is a really good time. Summer will be getting filled up and right now we’re at just two weeks out! I would love to help you get your quilt top done and made into a quilt. We will even bind it for you if you want!

The weather is great here and I cannot believe how green everything is getting! Hopefully I can get out there some today. It’s cloudy but that’s ok! How is your weather?

Have a great day!

Texture!!

I love it when my client wants some really good texture. We choose the edge to edge Compass and we got that texture. We used a pretty beige colored thread. It just pops on this navy blue backing.

I have a lot of people ask me about the different density for quilting. This quilt is definitely dense quilting. With dense quilting your going to get a heavier stiff blanket. But once it’s washed your going to get some great crinkling.

It’s a raining day and cooler here. They are talking snow this week. We are not looking forward to that since we’ve had some very warm spring days already. But it is what it is!

Have a great day!

Gather Quilt Sew Along

Hello friends!

I was able to work on this client quilt this week. The quilt pattern is the Gather quilt by at Suzy Quilts https://suzyquilts.com/shop/gather-quilt-pattern-download/ I absolutely love this pattern and can’t wait to have time to do another one.

Carolyn sent in this one and her fabrics were beautiful and she picked Baptist Fans for her Longarm edge to edge design. It turned out so much fun!

In fact if your reading this you can get 20% off any quilt using the Baptist Fans edge to edge pattern. Just put on your request form Baptistfans20!! This edge to edge stitches out so beautiful and easy.

Hope your Tuesday night is the best! I’m so tired I’m ready for bed. Our dog has been waking us up in the middle of the night freaking out scared. We can’t figure out what her problem is but it’s really messing with our sleep! Tonight early bedtime!
