I have been so lucky to get the opportunity to quilt for the most dedicated quilter on the planet! These are just a handful of the beauty she creates and I have quilted.
Holly has really grown up to be a hilarious dog! She makes me laugh and fills my heart!
You can see why I had to make this quilt, this is Kathleen’s Vintage Lace Quilt. I love how she did her’s in solids it really gives it a modern feel. The quilting design she chose is called Modern Maze.
The only problem quilting for customer’s is the inspiration I get from their beautiful quilts! My customer Kathy showed me this beautiful Vintage Lace pattern by Lo and Behold and the next thing I knew I was ordering all the fabrics! I’ve never been great at piecing but I love how this turned out. Quilting design is Luminosity, I love the texture and colors.
I just realized that my last blog post was in July and here it is December 2018! To say that I have been busy quilting is an understatement. Here is just a small sample of some of the amazing quilts I have quilted. I honestly believe I have the most amazingly talented customers ever! I am so grateful to do what I love!
OK so the real reason we finally decided to take the plunge and buy a new house was really so we could get a puppy! On June 20th we brought our new baby Holly home. I had no idea how much work and how much fun it would be! We made some mistakes like allowing her to sleep in our bed at first, having to wash the bedding two days in a row put a stop to that. She is so sweet and funny, it’s really brought our family together as we all share the responsibilities. Thank God for the crate, she is already sleeping in it all night without a sound. I’ve managed to keep up with all my quilts as usual and I welcome even more business! I have attached just a small sample of some of the beautiful quilts my customer’s have made. Gotta go snuggle with my pup now.
I have to admit that since the Pine Needle closed in March business has been slower than usual, steady but slower. I learned how to quilt at the Pine Needle and miss all the Pine Cones and all the referrals. Since I had a free weekend a few weeks ago I pulled out this scrappy quilt top I made ages ago out of Cotton and Steel Bluebird fabrics. To be honest I didn’t really care for it but I don’t like having unfinished projects. I used one of my favorite designs called Waves and Pearls. Not only did I get to use up a bunch of fabric making the backing but now I have a really beautiful quilt that I love!
