Custom Quilting

This is a recent custom quilting job I did for a customer's first grand daughter due next month. Loved quilting this one. So cute.

Just Can't Cut It

Just Can't Cut It is a quilt pattern perfect for using when you have a gorgeous fabric you don't want to cut. It takes 5 coordinating fabrics with easy blocks and a couple of borders. The pattern gives fabric amounts and measurements for 3 sizes of quilts. I made these 2 twin size quilts for my granddaughters when they come to my home.

Batik fabrics.

I still need to hang the butterfly and want to get night stands with matching lamps.

The pillow cases are made from A Flutter fabric panel.

I quilted with a large swirl and feathers surrounding the swirls.

Bargello In William Morris fabrics

A recent finish is this lap size bargello quilt made in all William Morris fabrics. The pattern is No-Measure Bargello. I chose to quilt in edge-to-edge feathers following the movement of the bargello design.
This quilt is hanging at Quilts at the Marshall House. The shop has an excellent selection of Wm. Morris fabrics including the newest line.

A little close up of the feathers. They are fun to quilt.

Kids Quilts

It is so hard to resist new children's fabric when it comes in at the shop. Just had to make these. One is using Sidelights II pattern and the other is a Yellow Brick Road. The last one with the farm animals is just a panel with a border.

Doodle Days panel in Sidelight II modified pattern.

Yellow Brick Road. Just loved the little critters on the fabric and soft yellows.

Just added a border to farm panel. This one had cut out animals that are flannel-backed so play a matching game with quilt.

Doodle Day

Just had to get this panel for a child's quilt and some coordinating fabrics. I will use the Sidelights pattern adjusting the measurements to fit this panel and using some of the little critters as the "sidelights".
Critters are adorable. Fabric available at Quilts at the Marshall House.

Forest Friends Bowls

These cute little "bowls" are easy and fun to make using Bosal double-sided fusible stabilizer. It is easily heated and molded into the shape you want. Wouldn't one of these be nice to add to a baby quilt gift featuring one of these forest friends?

Pattern used to make bowls. Good directions to follow.
