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!

Marmalade Quilting Design

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!

Amazing Grace Quilt

Hello Friday Peeps!

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 lavenderfieldsblankets@gmail.com. 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!

Much 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!

Rainbow Quilt and binding!

Hello friends! I hope you are having a great weekend! I was able to get this quilt all finished up this week and I am pretty happy about that and really like how it turned out. It’s one of my own quilt patterns. I love drawing up quilt patterns on graph paper and seeing how they turn out!

I use the edge to edge design from Urban Elementz called “Path to my Heart” I love how it turned out. I believe that rainbows are a sign of love and peace, so the hearts in this design just matched up perfectly! What do you think?

When I am short on time I will machine sew my binding down on both sides. The problem with doing that is I hate that line of stitches going around the front of the quilt. It interferes with the Longarm design. So I first sew the binding on the back of the quilt with my machine. So then it flips over to the front..

Next I press down that binding to the front side and clip it with my binding clips. I then go all round that on the front and glue that binding down. Just do little stripes at a time and as you put the glue on go ahead and iron that down. The heat will dry the glue. I then just add a few quilt clips every 3-4 inches just to help keep it all down nice and neat. Here is the link to the glue baste it that I use. It works really well and washes out of the quilt in the first wash. It comes with a tiny wand so it’s not coming out real fast!

I then change my foot on my sewing machine so that I can have one side down on the quilt top and the other side down on the binding. This allows you to get very close to the edge of the binding.

Here you can see what a great close stitch you can get. And no ugly sewing line going down the front of your quilt. It will blend in with the fabric on the back and not be so noticeable. I hope you give this a try if you machine sew your binding down. If you have any questions please feel free to comment and I will answer you and help you as much as I can!

Hope you have a great Sunday! We will be watching football and doing Taco Sunday…………. cause tacos just go good with football! Right? Go Bears!

Love,

Lisa
