Sorry for my long hiatus. I got busy with custom orders, a craft show, and
then some ufos. This will be a fairly picture heavy post to get us all caught up
and then hopefully I will be back on a more regular basis.
So first some custom orders. This is a queen quilt and shams made by me, and
quilted by Sharyn at Quilting Stitches which is run out of Mad About
Then I also had a request for some custom stockings.
Right in the middle of all this I had committed to a craft show, so things
were a bit crazy!
I also made a pile of coin purses for Mad About Patchwork.
Then my amazing friend Julie paid for me to take a workshop with Canadian
designer Libs Elliott and I loved the quilt so much I finished it that night!
The picture is of Libs and me holding it up at guild the next evening. Mind you,
this is the top only LOL.
And then this week my friend Julie and I had a basting party and we got 5
quilts basted, 3 of which were mine. I ended up quilting and binding them all
This one is called Polarity and is a quilt pattern by my friend Stacey. You
can find the pattern here,
and it will also be a class at Mad About Patchwork in the winter. Stacey made
such an impactful yet simple design, this was really fun to make.
This one is made from Denyse Schmidt’s Florence line and is backed in
flannel. I am wishing this were big enough for a lap quilt and then I would be
This last one is made from a layer cake of the line Salt Air… this line is a
few years old and I decided I had hoarded it long enough.
All three of those will be listed in my store at the end of the month. I have
to take them to guild first to fulfill my UFO list challenge. I am hoping to
have another basting party soon and get some more of my many tops finished!
Oh! And I forgot that I had about 12 custom oven mitts orders at the same
time lol… a busy beaver for sure!
I hope to be around a bit more often!
