We’ve been a little busy here working on some custom quilts in the background and these from the LongArm.
Also trying to enjoy the summer as much as we can! How have you been? We hope your doing great! I went to Florida for a few days this month and it was great. I got to visit with family I haven’t seen in a long time. I came home burnt, exhausted, and full of love!
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!
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!
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!
Hello Friends! I couldn’t wait to show you pictures of this beautiful quilt I was working on this past weeks. It is a really fun pattern called Framed Flowers by Hoffman fabrics. The panel is called Dream Big. I worked with my client to pick out this beautiful edge to edge design called Marmalade. I think it turned out beautiful! The texture and the design just did so much to compliment this quilt. Can you believe that this is the first quilt this client has made? No I could not either. It is just fantastic!
We are starting to enter our really busy phase right now with the holidays getting closer. Which is very hard for me to say much less realize. I am just not wanting summer to go. But as much as I do not want it to go I have come to the conclusion that it is coming anyways. So that means you need to get those quilt tops in now to get in line. We are still pushing out at one week but that is getting harder to meet. So get them in and get in line now!
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!
I don’t know about you guys but this week flew by! I mean like where did it go? I know I spent 10 hours on one quilt top on Tuesday and i think that is where I lost my track of time. Wednesday was resting my mind. So I guess that is where I lost my time! Yikes!
I wanted to talk about this panel i got from Missouri Quilt Co. It is called Amazing Grace. The panel is 54 X 65. So a very nice size. I added a border to it and some very pretty butterflies on the backing. I am sending this quilt to my mom for Mother’s Day. This panel makes a great gift for those you really care about. I’ve already gifted one. I plan on making one for our house soon also! I used Urban Elementz Midnight Sparkle to quilt it. It seems to be my favorite right now!
If you would like a custom quilt with this panel just send us a direct message here on our contact page or an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. It makes a wonderful gift for your family or friends who love God. I hope this quilt brings my mom some comfort during her days!
I hope you are doing well today! I was having some major anxiety earlier but I got dressed and got outside and I am feeling a lot better now! I wanted to let you know that I finally got this water color Vintage Lace Quilt all done up and ready for Etsy right here!
I hope you all have a great day and I pray that this Virus goes away soon! I’m ready to get back to normal life!
