Florida and work.

Red, White, and Blue with Midnight Sparkle

Hello Everybody!

Its been so nice hearing from a lot of you that you are finding us thru the Longarm League and loving our little website. My daughter and I work hard to keep this site current as much as we can!

This past week I went to Florida to visit my son who is in the Air Force. There’s a possibility, which it is kept secret till last minute, that he could be getting deployed to the Middle East and I just had to see him before that could possible happen!

He is stationed in Florida right now and let me tell you it’s very hot down there. I have never been south in the summer time. A whole new meaning to the word hot! We had a good time hitting the beaches early and leaving by 1pm. You just about could not hardly walk and breath at the same time after that. Or maybe it was just me lol. Needless to say I came home sporting a lot more sun on my skin!

It was nice to get home albeit a long trip back. It amazes me that you can get there by plane in about 4 hours. But travel to our airport is two hours then two hour flight, lay over, two hour flight. Turned into a 12 hour day getting home. Crazy! But faster than driving the whole way so I am thankful for that!

I got to work on this Quilt of Valor this week. I used the midnight sparkle on it as it shows so pretty on the backing. It was a very pretty pieced quilt and i am thankful every time I get to do one of those!

Well that is all I really know! Headed up stairs to work on a Meadowland Quilt sent in! I hope you all have a great day!

Bohemian Style Trippy Quilt Pattern

Hello Friends!

I was able to work up another Trippy Quilt that I am going to call Bohemian Rhapsody! What do you think about that? This quilt top is so colorful and has beautiful rich patterns thru out. It’s the perfect colors of summer! I should have it quilted up this week and in the shop..

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.

I hope you have a great day and that quarantine is going good for you. We are hanging in there. Some days better than others! I think if summer would come to Indiana we would be doing a lot better!

Take care!

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

Red, White, and Blue

Patriotic Quilt I Longarmed for our Local quilt shop. I used Midnight Sparkle for the edge to edge design.

Another Quilt I did for the local Quilt shop. I used the Baptist Fans edge to edge on it. I love how both of these quilts turned out. Fantastic don’t you think?

Hope you are having a good day! This Corona Virus stuff that is hitting has gotten a lot of people on edge! I think it is going to get worse before it gets better. Stay safe and Stay Home! Make those quilts!

Vintage Lace Quilt

Hello Friends

Its been a while I know! How are you all doing? I finished up my Vintage Lace Qal and got mine on the Longarm this past week. I decided to go with the Baptist Fans and gosh i absolutely love how it turned out! Pure perfection I think! What do you think?

The texture. That is what I am looking for when I pick a Longarm design. After this is washed it will be so soft and crinkled!

If you have any questions about this design or any others that you can check out on our Portfolio let us know! We would love to help you get your quilt top made into a delicious quilt!

I hope you all have a great day!

Love

Quilts of Valor

Hello Wednesday friends! I hope this finds you doing well. Times have been busy here. We are currently working on quilts, baby quilts with crib bedding and such for our shows this fall! We will be at the Chandelier Barn Market this fall and Christmas! We are so excited!

We’ve had the opportunity this week along with our regular Longarm Quilting to work on this Quilt of Valor! These quilts that come from the Quilts of Valor are donated to a veteran. The quilt maker volunteers her time and the Longarm quilter donates her quilting and batting. We all work together to make a large quilt to be given to the Veteran at a little celebration! It is another way to give back and we are all about that!

We also obtained some old vintage quilted tops. In fact they are handstitched and they are amazing! We are going to be repairing these and quilting them and making quilted coat tops! This is another one of our missions that we are working on. For every 10 quilted coats we sell we will be personally handing out a coat to a homeless person in Indiana. We hope that you will help us with this mission by donating quilt tops for this project! As a quilter and person with a heart for serving and caring for others I believe this will be a good way to give back. IF you would like to personally get involved please send me an email at lavenderfieldsblankets@gmail.com or through our website here on the contact page!

Hand Stitched Quilt tops from Stitch and Found.

We would also love to be able to supply a hat and gloves with these coats. So if you would like to donate those that would be great. We will start handing out the coats this fall for the winter season 2020-2021. We would love to now but it just takes time and resources and those are being used in other areas too. But we should definitely be up and running with the coats this fall!

Well I guess that is about it for now! We are working on two quilt alongs and will have that information for you tomorrow! Have a great day!

Colors of Neutral

Yes! It is strange. But I do occasionally make a quilt in neutral colors. And you know what? I love it! It actually exceeded my expectation by a million. The Meadowland Quilt pattern is by Megan at Then Came June. Her patterns are always full of color and so pretty!

I used neutral pattern in black, white, and beige. I used a solid kona cotton color in tan.

Just coming off the Longarm. I longarm quilted it with a pattern from Three Sisters Fabric called Baptist Fan.

The backing is a soft gray pattern and you can really see the edge to edge design on it.

This quilt will add a beautiful touch to any modern home. The colors will actually do well in any decor style with it’s neutral palette. The quilts measures 64 X 80 and is listed on Etsy right here! If you like this quilt I am getting ready to do another one and you can pick out your color scheme, just shoot us an email @ lavenderfieldsblankets@gmail.com or send us a message on the contact page here on the website!

I hope you all are having a good Wednesday and that life is treating you kindly. Around here we are just so grateful for everyday that is good and for everyday that brings challenges. God is good all the time!

Love

Steep Rock Quilt

Hello Friends! Happy Monday! AS I write this Sunday night! We are anxiouslly waiting to head to Louisville in the morning to pick up our Airman and get him home for a few days! Praying that the weather holds out and it’s just rain!

I had the opportunity to work on The Steep Rock Quilt this past week. I had done one a few weeks ago for a baby gift. I was so excited to get my Longarm jobs done and had some extra time to make one in the twin size! And of course in my favorite rainbow colors!

This quilt pattern comes together really fast!! I do have one block going the wrong way! But if you read my post on Instagram about how in the older days they intentionally left a mistake in every quilt to remind them that only God was perfect. So I decided to leave!

I used this owl backing in a very pretty blue. I did not have enough of it to do the whole backing so I pieced a rainbow through it. But……..I still ended the longarming with only one inch of fabric to work with. I say that was cutting it close! Geez!

This quilt pattern is by Erin at The Blanket Statement. She found out right before Christmas that she had cervical cancer and actually had surgery on December 24th, Christmas Eve. I’ve been trying to get everyone to check out the patterns on her website and pick up a pdf pattern to help support her and her family. So, if you could please do! And I will be so happy for her and a big thank you from me! We after all should stick together. Life is better together!
