Phase Quilt 2

Hello Friends!

As mentioned in an earlier post I pattern tested this Phase Quilt pattern for Modern Handcraft. I did this one recently in twin size. The colors are a pretty dark blue with shades of gray. I think it came out beautifully. I love it so much that I’m thinking it is going on the bed in the spare bedroom of my house!

I used Urban Elementz Midnight Sparkle edge to edge pattern. It gives the effect of the stars and the sky over the moon phases. For someone who is obsessed with the moon I really love this quilt. What do you think of it?

And more importantly how are you doing? This Virus and what I call House arrest is starting to get to a lot of people. I have my waves that come too of pure anxiety. Listening to the news I get the overwhelming feeling that I am going to get this. So, I try and not listen to the news too much. I try and keep myself busy sewing or reading. I am making sure I get outside too for some fresh air. I think that is really important, especially if you deal with anxiety.

I do hope you are all doing good and we here at Lavender Fields send you all loving vibes!!

Love

Phase Quilt Test Pattern

Hello Friends!

I was able to test a new pattern being released by Modern Handcraft. The Pattern is called Phase. Oh my loved every minute of it. I love doing curves and I love love the moon. The pattern is super easy to understand and Nicole has lots of tutorials on doing curves. I am currently working on another one that is large. This one is throw size. I used the edge to edge design called City of Light from Karlee Porter Designs. It turned out beautiful and is now hanging on my quilt rack above my stairs. You can get the pattern here.

We hope that you are all doing well with the Corona Virus quarantine. I know it is very unsettling right now so our suggestion is find something that you love to do and concentrate on that. We are also working on our spring cleaning! Not as much fun as quilting but hey at least it will be done once we get released to be back out in the wild!

Lots of love and peace,

Lisa

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!

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!

Client Quilt

Hello Friends! We hope you had a very good Christmas!! It was pretty quiet here but we are all celebrating as a family on the 30th. So it will not be quiet that day! I had the pleasure of working really hard to get three last minute quilts done that were dropped off before Christmas. Phew! That tested my anxiety, just a tad. 🙂

This was one of the quilts. The quilt top was amazing. Done in beautiful batiks! I just really loved it! We decided to use a bubble theme as the quilt had so many straight angles the bubbles would soften it up a bit! It turned out perfect and the client really loved it!

The quilt was a Christmas gift for the client’s grandson! Can you believe it! What a wonderful gift of love. Lots of hours went into this quilt and I am so glad I was blessed to be a part of it! And I am so glad I was able to push harder that I thought I could to get these three quilts out and to the owner and to the gifted!

We are sincerely honored every time we get a quilt top! It’s like being a part of something that goes out into the world and spreads warmth and love!

We are so grateful to our clients who trust us with their quilt tops! We thank you so much! We hope going into 2020 that we have more than enough quilt tops to keep us busy and that you, whatever season in life you are in, have a blessed 2020!

Love
