Here is the custom quilt currently in process, ready to go on the frames. I'm just shaking my head. I can't even believe it myself. I am so excited to see the quilting motif that I have planned to really finish this off.

Ice Crystalz-Custom Order Quilt

Here is my variation of Ice Crystalz. The snowflake print fabric is actually shimmery, although that doesn't show up in the photo, and really looks pretty up close and personal.
Front of  Ice Crystalz quilt. It looks so wintery. After counting the stitches I realize now what took so long. I absolutely love it!

Even the back is looking pretty sweet.

Dragonflies

This summer there seems to be  a bumper crop of dragonflies flitting around. I just knew I had to figure this pattern out to make a quilt to showcase their beauty.

Finished!

Aqua-Terra Rail Fence


Wow! I am thrilled with the finished product!




Next in the line-up, warm coppery/rust terra with a splash of aqua set off with unbleached muslin for this rail fence pattern. I'm crossing my fingers to be able to really make this quilt special by hand-quilting some sort of double wedding ring motif. In my quest to quilt freehand without stencil,  this should be a challenge.

Christmas in July

  Funny thing happened yesterday. I had checked the mail around noon and nothing was there. I don't know why but around midnight for some odd reason I checked the mailbox and lo and behold I got the biggest shock. I brought this package in, totally confused, not expecting any outstanding deliveries, ripped it open and read the nicest card.
Luxurious homemade soap from Etsy is the best!
From my wonderful quilt customer♥

Snickers is in love with the little bird from this arrangement. I think the little bug is absolutely adorable.
My neighbours brought this sweet arrangement over the other night. Such a wonderful surprise.

Sneak Peek Custom Bargello

Had a few scraps of fabric leftover: Here we go, quilt near completion. I just need to add the sleeve to the back and it will be ready to go. Almost knocked the postal driver down getting this special delivery. The fabrics sent to make this custom wall hanging in the Bargello style quilt are bold,beautiful and vibrant. I couldn't help daydreaming with the sunny yellow, ocean blues and Florida orange while I pieced this together. Top done, time to get it on the frames for quilting.

Holy Scrap!!

Scrappy Pinwheel Quilt top
Fond childhood memories came flooding back as I pieced this quilt top together. I remember being the proud wearer of a scrappy poncho and scrappy vest my mom made and I loved so much. For years I have wanted to make a scrap quilt but only just now had the courage to. What have I been waiting for all these years? It was so much fun! I love it♥ Finished

Ready for the frames

Here is the next quilt top in the lineup. When I saw this paisley fabric I was in shock, then I absolutely fell in love with it. It's bold and beautiful, vibrant and amazing in this quilt pattern called Ozark Puzzle(the variation of Drunkards Path) teamed up with purple and a splash of gold.

Just like the doodles


All done, "...and it fits too", Snickers!

Halfway there!

♥ Stylized Hearts ♥

So much for a blank canvas. Are you loving it? As soon as I picked up this fabric I knew it had a purpose. Are you seeing my vision? There is an appliqued pink ribbon in the centre that I will reveal as soon as I can quilt up that far.
