Closing Out 2015!!

As 2015 draws to a close, I wanted to share a couple of quilts that I have finished up over the past couple of weeks.

This quilt is Ellen’s and I am loving her label that she wrote!!

I also just finished a quilt for my customer Beth, from Texas, but as she hasn’t seen her quilt yet, I will just post a little sneak peak of this one.

And I took a few days to work on a quilt that I designed myself…..

I was blessed to quilt some awesome quilts.  I wish I could include all of the quilts, but this post would be way too long!!

French General Quilt for 2015 Fall Market

 

Not only did my business grow, but so did our family.  We gained a granddaughter this year, which brings us to two grandchildren.  I am so very blessed by the love and support of my family!

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of my customers for entrusting me with their quilts and of course, for my students that have welcomed me as a teacher.

I wish everyone a very Happy New Year and as I already have some new things in the works for 2016, I hope that you will continue to follow me.

Happy Quilting!!

A Few Quilts for your Viewing Pleasure!!

I don’t always have time to write a post for the blog, but I figured I would share some pictures with you of some quilts that I have had the pleasure of working on this Fall.

I finished a mini Splash quilt.  Pattern from Jaybird Quilts.  I did the larger version of this quilt over the summer, and thought since I had a charm pack of Jaybird Quilt fabric, that I would give this a go.  Each charm square had to be cut into 6 pieces…..yikes!

Ola made this beautiful hand embroidered quilt.

I also experimented with making some Christmas ornaments, and was quite happy with how they turned out.

Kay Butler’s Magic Carpet Quilt turned out beautiful!!  Excuse all the pictures please, but most of the blocks were done differently, so I didn’t want you to miss anything!!
