Beautiful Vintage Lace

Hello Friends!

Today I got to work on this beautiful quilt sent in by Mary from New Orleans! Mary always picks the most beautiful fabrics. She has inspired me to make another Vintage Lace myself!!

We are praying for our friends in Texas and states that have been impacted with the weather we’re all experiencing. Life is so stressful right now. I feel like I’m constantly waiting for the sky to fall. 😭

Take care friends!

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!

Colorful Client Quilts

Hello friends! I wanted to share these two beauties that Martha sent in to have LongArm quilted.

First this beautiful red florals of Kaffee Fassett fabrics are so striking. We decided it would be fun to use a hot pink thread color! This was a Christmas inspired quilt that Martha made for herself. I just love getting quilts with such vivid colors.

Martha also sent in this beautiful turquoise, blue, and green colored batiks quilt. It was a lot of fun too.

Batiks are a thicker fabric that some have trouble sewing with. I always use a new needle size 18 and I’ve never had any problems with them.

Both quilts stitched out perfectly and I added binding to both and they are heading back home on Monday!

We are getting busier with summer just around the corner. We are participating in several quilt alongs that you can find the information on them on our Instagram.

We have a big project being released in July and working on several commissions. We do take special quilt order requests for weddings and such. If your wanting to schedule a consultation for a commission piece please reach out via our contact form. We would love working with you!

If you are wanting to get your quilt top quilted please send in a request to be put on the calendar. We have a full schedule ongoing but turn around time is right at 3-4 weeks. We try very hard to stay on schedule and we can’t wait to work with you!

Hello Friends!

This week is already proving to be a good one! I have a secret but I can’t let it out till July! So it will be a big birthday surprise. Some work that I am working on!

I worked on another secret sewing project for a client Friday and finished Monday. Today I worked on this super sweet baby quilt! The pattern is called Square Peg. Leslie pieced it and I used Fort to quilt it. It is so adorable. Don’t you just love these fabrics? Gorgeous!

Today I start physical therapy on my arm. I’m so ready for it. But honestly, it’s so cold here I hate the thought of leaving the house! Tomorrow I have two big quilts to do and I’m looking very forward to them!

I hope you are all somewhere where it’s warm. Or at least inside! If you have any questions about getting a quilt quilted or a custom quilt made reply here or send us a message through the contact page! We can’t wait to hear from you!

Fun client quilts!

Hello Friends! It’s Friday!!! I’m sending these two quilt back out to their owners today!!!

We used Modern Curves on both of them and I just love all the texture. The fabrics and the colors! So pretty.

Friday here is a no work zone. But a maintenance zone. I’ll be cleaning up the studio. Cleaning the machines and oiling them. I have a few stacks of fat quarters I want to get organized. I have some really small scraps that I want to start cutting down to 2.5 inch squares to do a patch work quilt. I still can’t hardly cut yet so that will have to wait!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Sweet Client Quilt

Hello Friends!

I hope you have a great day! It’s early here in Indiana. We’re suppose to be getting snow this afternoon! We shall see.

I got the opportunity last week to work on a few client quilts. My broken arm helped right along and I was so thankful for that! The first quilt was a darling baby quilt. The colors were gorgeous and we used the edge to edge Dainty on it. I just love how it turned out!

The second client quilt was a Christmas quilt that my client and his sister worked on. Those colors!!! We used the edge to edge called Cake Walk and used red thread. Don’t you just love the contrast? A very beautiful quilt!

If you follow me on Instagram we’re going to be going live with an update from the doctor yesterday later on today!

Much love friends! Give it and receive it!

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!

Life Happens…

I’m writing to you my friends and those in my life. To be able to look back and see how far I’ve come.

On Sunday night around midnight I got up to go to the bathroom, I fell down before I got there and hit my arm on the door frame. I broke my humerus bone and impacted it. If the bones don’t come out of it in a week I’ll need surgery to fix it. I absolutely do not want another surgery like that as I’ve been through a lot of those in the past already.

I am one who never sits down. Today the pain is more tolerable so now I’m restless, tired, mad, and sad. I’m sitting here watching Mark do the dishes and run the vacuum. Last night he helped me get a bath. The first one I had had since the accident.

I have quilts to do so this afternoon my daughter is going to help me and see if we can get them knocked out. In case I do have to have surgery I won’t be worried about them. I’ve always been good at getting them done and back to my clients.

So that’s my life. The best highlight is my son is home from the Air Force. Not the visit we had planned. We’re going to make cookies tonight. I’m looking forward to that!!

Have fun and be careful

! Happy New Years Eve!!
