New Designs

I just placed an order for seven more pantographs!  Check out a complete list of designs on the All Available Designs tab.

There are so many designs to choose from!!  It is hard to decide what I want to add to my inventory.

Cute Quilts from Patti

These were my latest customer quilts.  They were so cute and cuddly with a minky backing on each.

Bauhaus design.

I tried a new design on this quilt...Retro Graphics 2.

My Daughter's Latest Quilt

I had so much fun helping my daughter design and make this quilt.  It fits so well with her bedroom which she designed after this fabric line.  It is very fresh and modern and looks great in her bedroom.

I used Contempo for the design.

Karen's Batik Braid Quilt

I quilted this bright batik braid quilt last month.  It really is impressive with the colors.
Diamonds Are Forever is the design name.

Memory Quilt

I had the privilege of creating a memory quilt for a customer from his deceased wives clothing to give to his daughters.  These projects can be quite emotional but I believe this turned out very well.

I found the pattern in a quilt magazine and thought it would lend itself to clothing.  My goal was to make a quilt that felt modern while still holding the memories of the clothing sewn into the quilt.

I had a friend, Naomi, piece the center of the quilts.  My schedule does not have enough room in it sometimes to do the things I love.  There are two quilts almost exactly alike.  My hope is that these quilts will comfort the recipients and help them remember the good memories of their mom.

Shadow Box

I also completed a UFO this month that will be used in one of our guest bedrooms.  The fabric for this quilt was purchased at Glacier Quilt Shop in Kalispell, MT during a visit to my parents place in Bigfork, MT.  My mom helped me pick out the fabrics for this and when I look at the quilt, it brings me back to that quilt shop and the great time we had there.  (Miss you, Mom.)

Update (11/12/15):  My niece, Anna, fell in love with this quilt so I gave it to her for her Christmas gift in 2014.  She appreciates the link back to her grandma.

The pattern is called Shadow Box.
Here is my version:

I used Twofold Feathers as the design.

I didn't calculate the quilt size vs batting size very well...or maybe VERY well.

My Iowa Quilt

I love it when I can complete a quilt within a year of buying the fabric!  I bought the fabric for this Iowa quilt at Cut Up & Quilt quilt shop during the 2013 Iowa Shop Hop last June and completed it June 2014.  I like the pattern but it did have its challenges.  I am happy with the results and my husband loves it.  He is Iowa through and through (I just married into it.)

Used Square Spiral for the quilt design.

The backing included some leftover scraps as well as 2014 Iowa fabric.

Scrap binding pulling in the solids from the top.

Iowa Quilts

I quilted two of Rachel's Iowa quilts last month.  One the first one, she chose the Square Fold quilt design to look like farm fields. Perfect for an Iowa quilt!

Pieced, flannel backing...perfect for snuggling!
The second is the kit purchased at the 2013 Iowa Quilt Shop Hop.  She chose the Square Spiral design for this one.

Love the color for the border!
