We are so excited to announce that one of our quilts we Longarmed is on the cover of Love Patchwork and Quilting this month! We worked with Wendy from New York at The Weekend quilter. She designed the quilt and the bag that goes with the quilt. When she wanted us to LongArm both quilt and bag we were so happy to help!
You need to pick up a copy this month. You can get it at Barnes and Noble and Joanns or you can Subscribe at their website. The pattern to make the bag and quilt will be in the magazine!
We used Mod 60’s Butterflies as the edge to edge and staggered them. I think it turned out beautiful but then the quilt itself is beautiful so it all came together perfectly!
The publication will be, if not already, released in the UK and the USA. Get your copy and let me know what you think about it!
Have a good Hump Day! I’m off for that second cup of coffee and then heading to the studio. I have two quilts to get done today.
I worked on this client quilt this week. It came all the way from Canada. Our first out of country quilt!
It’s very beautiful in colors of cream and beige on the front and a sweet pattern fabric on the back. The pattern is the Deco quilt pattern from Lo and Behold Stitchery. Definitely a beautiful pattern that I would love to make.
The client picked out Clam Glam Deco edge to edge design by Karlee Porter Designs. This was such an easy edge to edge to work with. They clicked right up in place and I never had any issue when I forwarded the quilt. I am definitely going to be using it on my quilt top that is waiting to be quilted.
We’ve had the best time here with our Airman being home. The time has flown as it always does. I heard a saying the other day in one of my books. The days are long but the years are short. Isn’t that the truth!
I’m going to be starting a quilt this week for a daughter who lost her dad. We are using his Hawaiian style shirts and she’s picked out the Joy Pattern.
This is a free pattern on the AGF website. I had a client use the pattern and I can’t wait to see how it is going to turn out. I love being able to make quilts. I don’t usually have time to work on too many myself so this will be a nice day on Thursday to cut this out and get it pieced!
What are you working on? Any plans for an end of summer trip? I’m hoping that me and Mark can get away to Lake Erie or somewhere where there is water! It would be nice if the borders would open so we could go into Canada.
It’s early morning here where I am so I am off to get another cup of coffee and get to work! Have a great day!
We’ve been working hard and enjoying the summer here at Lavender Fields. I spent a couple days in Florida and had the best time. It was a much needed refresh. Since then we’ve been working away.
I worked on this beautiful Voyage client quilt. The fabrics were gorgeous and I love the pattern. The pattern designer is Suzy http://www.suzyquilts.com We used the edge to edge Marmalade on it. It is definitely one of my favorite designs. It’s not too dense but gives great texture!
This beautiful quilt was sent in for us to work some magic on. Can we say Tula Pink fabric is just gorgeous and so is this pattern. It is a free pattern on her website. We used the edge to edge design Abacus Squared. This design gives you great texture and is such an easy design to stitch out.
This Vintage Lace using Baptist Fans turned out great. We gave the fans a higher top and I love how it turned out. This is a very versatile edge to edge design. The next quilt shows how you can spread them wider to get a totally different look. The edge to edge is from Three Sisters fabric. It’s the best design out there. It clicks right together and stitches out so perfectly.
Hope you are doing great. We’ve been preparing for summer. Yes! And working on a lot of beautiful quilts! This purple is the backing of a t-shirt quilt that was sent in. She chose Cake Walk as the edge to edge design. It’s perfect for holding those t-shirts in place!
My friend Janice pieced this quilt. I love the color so much. I think it has a vintage feel to it! We used Keryn’s Chevron on it! This edge to edge is so unique and pretty.
This is a quilt that I pieced for a test pattern! I’m loving the colors and texture on this one so much! I used 60’s Mod Butterflies as the edge to edge and it just really pops! Such a great pattern also.
Client quilt that came in. We used Swirly Gig 1 on it and geez I love it so much! So much texture! If you know me you know green is my favorite color so this one was fun! I added the binding to this one per client request.
This client seen the green quilt with the Swirly Gig 1 and decided she wanted to switch to it too!! It just makes the quilt pop I think!
This quilt sent in is the Voyage Pattern by Suzy Quilts. The soft colors were so good! The client chose Loopy Leaf as the edge to edge. I think it turned out perfect!!
Well we hope you have a great day filled with lots of fun and love!
Saturday is my most favorite day. We rest. We love. We eat. Today on the forecast is rain. So today we really rest.
I worked on this client quilt this week. The pattern is called Picnic In The Park. It is so beautiful and I can just imagine actually taking a picnic with this quilt. I definitely want to make one myself!
We used Baptist Fans on it with white thread. I added binding to it sent in with the quilt. Pretty black with white polka dots! Perfect for this colorful quilt!
I hope you have a great Saturday doing some pampering and resting! Filled with love and peace!
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!
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!
I’m doing ok! Still broken arm but getting a lot more use out of it. Hoping that’s not a bad thing. I go back to the doctor on Tuesday and hopefully will see a lot of healing! 🙏
I wanted to tell you about Suzy Quilts sew along with her new pattern Gather!
I was so thankful that I went a head and did mine early. There is no way I can cut out a quilt right now, but I can LongArm still!
So here’s mine all ready for the LongArm. I used all Kona Cotton solids with some Rifle Paper Co prints on the front and for the back! Can’t wait to get it done!! You should follow the link up above on the first picture and sign up! She’s offering great prizes and we are sponsoring one week with a free LongArm quilting! Yah!
So honestly things are still moving slow here with my arm but I did get a few Longarms done, including binding this week. Albeit with lots more breaks in between!
Any how I can’t wait to see all the pretty gather quilts, if your going to do the sew along let me know!!!
We’re back up and running. Arm is still broken but I am getting less pain with it and a tiny bit mobility. Catherine is loading quilts for me and I finish them up. We worked on this colorful snowman quilt yesterday. The client picked the famous Midnight Sparkle for the edge to edge. So dang cute!
It felt really great being back working but I did have some anxiety. I mean what would life be like with no anxiety!
I don’t like to talk politics, religion, or anything like that. But I do have to say this change of power has me worried. I’m so thankful to be living in a small rural town!
Take it easy my dear friends! What are you working on this week? Whatever you do do it in love!
