Guy Quilt, Canadian Theme

This is a gift quilt for a man from Canada that now lives in the states.  There are a lot of sports novelty prints used and some team prints.  This is quilted with a design called Maple Syrup, which has a nice Maple leaf and a swirl. The thread is white, and back is a solid red fabric with some large maple leaf pieced blocks near the 4 corners.

Scheduling Appointments for August

I’m back from vacation. If you’d like to set an appointment to drop off a quilt call now. I will be in and out so please leave a message if I don’t pick right up and I’ll give you a call back as soon as I get it.

I appreciate my clients that were so good about allowing me to take some time off and delayed dropping off a quilt.

The good news is I will have a short turn around to start off in August.

Thank you!!

Time Off & Prepare ahead for Christmas

I’m taking some time off for the month of July. I’ll be back to work Aug 1 and will have a clean slate so I can gear up for holiday quilting.

If you have gift quilts for Christmas that you want quilted, this August would be a good time to get them to me.  Beat the rush and plan ahead. Please don’t wait to the last minute and expect a fast turn around. Of course I will do the best to complete quilts timely but I often cut off before Thanksgiving and hate having to turn people away because they didn’t plan ahead.  I love quilting for others and want you to get your quilts in time to bind.

Ok, I’m off the soap box now ;).

Thank you to my clients that allow me to work from home and understand that I need a break sometimes too.

See you in August!!

Northwoods & Stars

Michelle made this man’s quilt for a gift. She chose Pinecone allover design, rust brown thread and Warm & Natural batting. I think someone is going to be really happy to get this.

     

Blooming 9 Patch

Liz made this beautiful blooming 9 patch quilt. I took extra photos of the rich dark prints. The backing shows the quilting design well. The quilting design is Falling Leaves, bronze thread & Quilters Dream batting. She did a lovely job piecing this quilt.

           

Jelly Roll JIve

Jelly Roll Jive is a pattern from a quilting cruise workshop Martha took with instructor Peggy Martin. It’s made with Jelly Roll Strips with 4 strips sewn together lengthwise. Then the strip sets are cut into triangles and sewn into squares. If you look close at the blocks they are mirror images. The quilt is a beauty with all the jewel tone batik fabrics. The quilting design is Luna by Ann Bright, the batting is Hobbs 80/20 and Martha chose a deep purple color thread.

Good Night Irene Quilt

This is a Missouri Star Quilt pattern called Good Night Irene https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop/detail/37260/msqc/msqc/goodnight-irene-quilt-pattern-by-msqc. Pam pieced this cute quilt using the video instructions from Missouri Star Quilting.  The pattern uses 4 charm packs of prints and 4 charm packs of solids. She designed the border using some coordinating fabrics. The quilting design is Circles, the batting is Hobbs 80/20 & she chose a red thread that goes well with both the front & back of her quilt. The backing fabric is from Fabric.com.  The backing fabric is the softest fabric I’ve felt in a long time. I hope to make this quilt soon too. I love it!

      

Another easy but cool free pattern

Looking for something to do during this rainy weather?  Going through my email today & found this cool looking easy quilt pattern.

I get the QuiltHome.com email and this quilt was featured today. They’re offering 25% off on the same fabrics if you want to make this exact quilt & free shipping.

I’m sharing this with you not only because it’s a great deal but because it’s a great pattern for using up your stash. The pieces are large so choose your fabrics wisely and make sure that they look great together. I like how they pair up the larger bold prints with the smaller, muted ones.
