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

Suzy Quilts Sew Along

Hey Friends! How are you doing?

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!!!

Have a great weekend! XO’s

Snowman Client Quilt

Hello Friends!

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!

Snowflake Quilt 2

Hello Sunday night!

Sunday night football and Sunday night our hot water tank passed over. It’s been giving us fits so it will be nice to have a new one. Unfortunately we will have to move out stacked washer and dryer to fix it. Life. It’s a never ending story of good and bad. I try to always just look at the good and not worry about the rest. It is what it is!

But look at this beautiful Snowflake quilt I got to work on! The fabrics were gorgeous. All those pretty purples I just loved! It has a pretty snowflake flannel backing and lime green binding. I love how it turned out. It was a lot of fun!

We have a very busy week ahead. I’m trying to stick to my calendar of quilts as much as I can. Hopefully tomorrow won’t be a big long ordeal at Lowe’s and I can get home at a descent time. But really it’s Lowe’s. So. Much. Stuff. I love! I’m thinking Christmas lights. A couple new plants! Oh yes! Do you like to go to the home shops? I love it. Every time I get at least one to two plants! Of course I need them. I only have like 20 in our small house lol. 🤷‍♀️

I started a new book this weekend. It is called Illusions by Richard Bach. It really hit me toward the end how we see the world and how we have so much control over that with our minds. I love books like that. I believe our minds are so powerful. I’m going to start sharing my books here. Outside of sewing my books are my next favorite!!!

We are suppose to be getting snow tomorrow and my fingers are crossed that it does snow!! The first snow of the season is always so exciting! I would prefer to be in Florida living but since we are still here than I say bring on the snow! Please!

I’m working on a Gather quilt. It’s Suzy’s newest pattern. I had really hoped to work on the top this weekend but things got away from me. So hopefully this week while I’m on the Longarm I can get it pieced!

Well I hope you have a great Sunday night. Signing off here cold in Indiana.

Legendary Quilt

Hello! It’s me again! Yes two in one day! I just couldn’t wait to post this quilt. Is it not the coolest? It’s called Legendary and was pieced by my friend Amanda at Quilt Cakes. I just love love the greens in the trees. They are so vibrant. She made this as a Christmas gift for her dad. I’m sure he is going to love it! ❤️

She picked out the pattern Diagonal Plaid for the edge to edge and she wanted it low density. I think it was a perfect choice for this quilt!

As I’m writing this I’m practically sitting on my heating pad as my femur is screaming mad for some reason. I woke up this morning anxious and had numerous errands to run. I was so thankful to get back home. Home is my safety net. With worrying about the state of the world and this dang pandemic it’s almost tipping a lot of people over. If you or someone you know suffers from anxiety I would ask you to check on them. Please. I feel myself doing a shut down which means no phone, no social media, taking a break. It seems to calm me more when I do that. Anxiety is no fun and no joke. It’s scary when your body is racing inside and you feel like your going to implode. That’s the best way I can describe it.

So tonight I’ve shut myself in our bedroom where’s it’s nice and quiet. I have lavender in the diffuser and chai tea to drink. A good book and hopefully some good sleep tonight and I’ll wake up feeling better! Tomorrow is a busy day and that is so good for me too. I’m very grateful for my work!

Tell me how you take care of yourself during all this uneasy in the energy. I hope your doing good. Hang in there for dear life. It has to get better soon!!

Shine Quilt 1

Hello Friends!

I hope today was a good day for you! It was good here. I had the opportunity to work on one of Suzy’s Quilts from Suzy Quilts. It is from her third installment of patterns this year called The Shine quilt. I have to admit I was very nervous to work on it. But I am with all of them. I want to do my very best. Suzy couldn’t decide between Constrained Swirls and Crystalline. She left it up to me to decide! Nerves!

After talking to a good quilty friend we decided on the swirls. I think it turned out beautiful but really the quilt was perfect and anything would have looked beautiful on it.

It was also so nice to talk to Suzy on the phone. She gives great advice for quilting, living, and taking care of yourself as a woman. I have to admit I’ve been working so hard and having so much pain with the weather change I probably had let myself go.

So tonight I colored my hair and hopefully this week will get in for a hair trim! What are you doing to take care of your self? My anxiety is still giving me problems. The elections are over and now we have a new set of leaders starting. Scary. And the pandemic always breathing down our neck. Tight schedules and cooler weather. Just so much!

Take time for yourself! Paint your toe nails. Color your hair. Take that hot bath! Do whatever it is that brings you peace and love!

Meadowland Quilt

Good morning friends! We survived our show this weekend and we are going to be working on a quilt top today, resting some, and watching some football!

I pieced this Meadowland myself. I love all the gold tones and fall colors. It’s my favorite time of the year as I really love the color orange right now! I got the bundle of fabric from Southern Charm Quilts and it was just the perfect match of fabrics. She has lots of fabric and some really cool patterns. January I want to make her Anthology quilt!

We are also super excited to be working on Suzy’s quilt top from Suzy Quilts. It’s from her Shine sew along and I can’t wait to get it on the LongArm!!

We also have 3 tshirt quilts and 5 full quilt finishes to get done by Christmas so with that being said our cut off for Christmas delivery is November 15. After that I can’t promise I will get the quilts back but I sure as heck will try!

All well workshop has a beautiful pattern for quilted coats and we will be working on these for our next fall show. We will have a long and short version. I’m super excited about that! I want one for myself so bad that I can’t wait to get started on them! Do you prefer shirt or long?

Well I am off of here now. Must pickup and cleanup the house from being gone all weekend. We hope you have a great Sunday!

Client Quilt #339

Hello friends! I worked on this Carpenter’s Star quilt that my client dropped off yesterday! I just couldn’t wait to work on it. She had picked a beautiful variegated thread in colors of deep yellow, cream, and brown. A very bold move that I was anxious to see how it would look. She chose the edge to edge Deb’s Oakleaf from Urban Elementz.

She loves dense quilting. I do too. The texture turned out awesome! The last picture is of the back. I think the thread color really blended well with the fabrics she used. What do you think? I love it and can’t wait for her to see it!

Do you love colored thread? I’m usually one that sticks to cream colored thread but on this next quilt we used a rose colored thread.

This quilt was made by a bunch of quilters. Each block a quilter made and sent in to Amanda who pieced them all together. She sent it to me to be Longarmed. We gifted it to a friend who was going in for a double mastectomy.

I loved seeing all the colorful stars. Each made with love. We used the panto Midnight Sparkle. I huge favorite of mine and so many quilters!

The really neat God thing that happened totally on it’s own is each Star got a sparkle star right in the middle of it. Is that like magic? I could not have ever lined that up by myself. Truly a miracle!

Life is such a handful of miracles. If only we’re open to seeing them! Have a great weekend friends!
