Some amazing quilts

Vintage Lace Quilt

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.

Lots of quilts and a new puppy!

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.

Bluebird

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!

Double sided beauty

Renee’s mother started this quilt and never finished it, she said it was just too much grey.  Renee took it on and turned it into a double sided beauty.  I love her grey batiks mixed with the Essex linen and the splash of peach.  The quilting design is Peacock Feathers.
