Pretty Meadowland

Good morning friends!

I wanted to share this beautiful Meadowland quilt with you! The colors and fabrics are so beautiful! We used Coastline as the edge to edge and I binded it with the backing fabric. The pattern you can get from Then Cane June.

I’m so in love with the backing fabric too! Lilac has been speaking to be. I’m working on a crochet blanket in lilac. What is your favorite color right now? Do you ever love a color so much you look up the meaning of it? No? Just me! Lilac is a very powerful color. A color of coming into your own. I’m feeling it!

Hope you all have a great Sunday! XO’s

Lauren’s quilt.

Good morning friends!!!

I was able to work on this beautiful quilt that Lauren sent me! I had so much fun with it. She wanted it stitched out in a low density. It came out perfect. I just love all the colors in this thing! The work is beautiful!

Now I am off to work on a wedding commissioned quilt! Hoping to get a big dent in the top today! Here’s to wishing me luck!

Hiring a Longarm Quilter

Hiring a longarm quilter can be a daunting task. You’ve spent hours on your quilt top working so hard to get it just perfect. Sending it in the mail to someone you’ve never met can be scary! I know. I was once like you. Trying to find the perfect longarm quilter, one who I hoped would view my quilt top as a piece of art that I worked very hard on making. One who would take their time to make sure that the design and the quilt top match. One who would listen to my concerns and give me that feeling of assurance that my quilt top would be in good hands.

Here at Lavender Fields Blankets we not only understand your concerns. We want to work with you to overcome that fear, and to help you choose a design that works best for your quilt top. When you agree to work with us we immediately begin to work on making a relationship with you to help you feel at ease. When it is time to load your quilt top on the machine we find, based on your likes, 5 pantos from you to choose from. We have found that breaking down to just 5 helps relieve all that confusion of the thousand of designs out there to choose from. We work to communicate with you through text, pictures, and/or video to come up with a design that you love!

WE never start on your quilt top until you are happy and secure with the design. Not only is the design important but also the density. Some clients like their quilts very dense. Some in between dense and what I call light dense. Heavy density takes longer as we slow the machine down just to make sure it takes all those curves and stitches slowly and perfectly. I find that this is a very important step. I would rather take the time to be at the Longarm longer and get a perfect stitch than to rush a job.

We love our clients and we love your quilt tops as much as I love mine. Your quilt will always be sent back to you wrapped in plastic to protect it and a tracking number to track it. You can trust us we will be tracking it too!

We know here at Lavender Fields Blankets that your quilt is your piece of art that you are creating to put out in the world. Rather you sell it or you use it as a family heirloom to be passed down thru generations we want you to know that we understand just how important and loved this quilt is and will be. I am first a quilt maker myself. My quilts each speak something about me at that specific time in my life. We know yours do too!

We want you to know that working with us that communications is very important in the process of your quilting service. That is why you will have access to our cell phones and can communicate with us through call at our normal business hours or through text after hours!

WE look forward to working with you!

Until next time!
