Link to this Pink Hunters Star listing here: https://quiltsbytaylor.com/quilts-for-sale/finished-item/hunters-star-quilt-quilt-for-sale-finished-quilt-ready-to-ship-77-x-85/

Also with the scrap 1/5 inch strips I remembered The log cabin block is great for using all sorts of colors.

But I had a lot of purple~ so I added some white, and made this sharp pattern. Which I realized I dont have offered here on the site. Ive done many of them. The wavy ones are nice too. So many quilts, so little time! haha~

Im in the process of making a listing for it. I want to have a finished piece before it goes live. πŸ™‚

some other notable project Whole cloth Quilt, done in all white, its ready for binding and to its new home soon~~

Stunning as a whole. I just love these~ this one has a pastel batik backing. super sweet πŸ™‚

Scrap Management Month~ 2 NEW finished quilts, and upcoming scrappy projects all month

So this is where I started with scrap buster month. After I had to manage my time shoveling 3 FOOT of snow, in 4 storms in 1 month~~ Im glad to have warmed up after 2 months in below freezing! We jumped into winter full force this year!

And so Im back to scrap busting with this quilt, Walk in the Park Quilt~ fun multi colored one here. It ended up measuring 84 X 82, so what I would consider a small queen. I didnt go about it for a particular size, it was based on what I had in my stash, super fun!

Link to that listing here: https://quiltsbytaylor.com/quilts-for-sale/finished-item/quilt-for-sale-10/

Also NEWLY Listed: Jelly Roll Quilt~

I used up SOME of my 2 inch strip stash with this fun pattern, Sewing them all end to end to create 1 long continuous piece. I bet it couls have went around my block twice.. LOL but as you fold and re sew, fold and re sew you come up with a fun mix of scrappy colors. The bonus with this little cutie is its double batted with layers of 100% cotton/ Its a dense and heavy. It ended up being 60 X 89. so again, not a standard bed size. For reference the surface of a queen is 60 X 80.

It has been washed and dried, so no additional shrinkage.

the link to this quilt is located here:https://quiltsbytaylor.com/quilts-for-sale/finished-item/wall-quilts/quilt-for-sale-11/

So that’s 2 fun sized quilts finished, and off to keep busting up the scraps.

here’s a few of what I’m working on coming up soon…

OK.. Im off and running!

Scrap Management Month, Using up The 1.5 inch strips

Every year around this time of year, once I realize I’m stuck indoors a lot due to winter, I look around at the scraps I have, all organized in totes according to different cuts. And wonder why I dont do more with them>?

Well the short answer is Im always busy on something. So for the 3rd year in a row I force myself to go through what I have and see what happens. Its become something I look forward to. I spend the month of January not allowing myself to “cut” anything new. ( with exceptions of orders)~ ” Use what I have cut”~ ” make more with what’s already to go”~

So this year I picked up on this cool little block, that uses 1.5 inch strips, which I really needed to use up somehow. ( 1.5 being the smallest scrap I keep)

Super cute Trip Around the World block

Ive tried them in a few colorways just to see. Red White and Blue which is always fun.

And then I have settled in on a blue and green version which Im still working on.

But It is done in a Bargello style, and it has inspired me to do more with the Bargello.

So look for that coming up soon. Meanwhile Im going to make several more of these cuties, and maybe once I get 9 made I will put them together somehow. :)~~ somehow… Lets see what happens~

In the same manor I made these 2 color blocks. Very bold colors, and very scrappy. I have plans to add something black and white around it from this stage,

So thats the 1.5 inch scrappy round up. I have a month to go… to see what I can stir up πŸ™‚

Happy New Year to All!

Biscuit Quilt, Puff Quilt, Ravioli Quilt

So This quilt is one of my pet projects.

I have several…. Something about these are just super sweet.

They are puffy pockets, and make awesome couch covers, chair covers, pet beds, just anywhere you wand a puff of warm and cozy. I haven’t quilt got it all sewn in these pics, will put pics in my next post of the finished project.

I have made a super big one once… but had trouble with it being to heavy for a bed, and hard to wash if you make them too big.

But They are wonderful. I might think about making these on a made to order basis, but they wouldn’t be bed sizes I would offer. If your interested , you can comment on this post and I will get it directly.

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Have a Happy New Year!

Whole Cloth Quilt in The Making, Off White Solid, Free Motion Quilting

Super excited to get this one started! Its 1 whole piece. No Patchwork, or seams. Just focus on the beautiful free motion quilting.

Moving around some of the frame work and starting to add all the fun elements.

I am a hand guided quilter. Meaning none of this is computer quilting. I don’t care for computer quilting, takes away the fun, unless I was quilting for other quilters. Which isn’t my thing either. I learned real quick I didn’t want to do work for other quilters. LOL nuff said there~~ πŸ™‚

anyway here are the beginnings of what’s to be a beautiful design on a Queen size off white quilt.

You can order one like this here: https://quiltsbytaylor.com/quilts-for-sale/made-to-order-quilts/quilt-for-sale-9/

( colors based on availability) due to supply chain issues, Im happy to look for a color before ordering. The inventory is slow to re stock, but most of the basic colors are available.

Migrating Geese Quilt with Updated quilting, and Pattern Re-Fresh

handmade quilts

Time for a Quilting Pattern Refresh!

I just love this quilt! The first time I did it I quilted it with those beautiful feathers. I loved it. And so have many others…..and they loved the quilting the way it was. I think Ive made it 4 times, and always have done the same quilting.

So I decided that the only way I can try a new thread path, is to make a spare quilt, which is what this is. spare parts quilt~~ pieces I saved , or made a few extra of so I could make a small quilt.

So this one is a cutie, not real big, but it allows me to do different things in the quilting. Its also double Batted, so its meant for decor and show πŸ™‚

I will put in my sale section when I’m finished and know the exact measure. its approx. 38 X 45 inches right now. nice throw size. ts also not totally finished. check back to this post and I will edit new pics of it finished.

So Now when someone orders it, they can have a variety of quilting to look at and have options, of a new quilting Motif.

So I will be updating the listing with these new photos for an great upgrade to the original πŸ™‚

I you would like to order a larger version of Migrating Geese Quilt

Newly Finished, Whole Cloth Quilt, no Patchwork~ It’s all about the quilting~

handmade quilts

Im excited to get this one finished. Its what you would call a whole cloth quilt. no seams, no patchwork

just a show of some fun quilting.

There is over 3400 yards of thread on this one, I used a variegated thread that changes colors beautifully over the quilt.

I did a bit of drawing on it, with some cute over lapping squares. I used that as a place to but feathers and straight lines. and the background is a variety of 3 different motifs. All free hand guided quilting. Super Fun!

it is King size at 94 X 106. I love the idea of it being 1 solid piece of fabric with no pattern, for those who like a softer look, its perfect! Planning my next one already. πŸ™‚ Im thinking pink~

I have this quilt ready to ship, located here https://quiltsbytaylor.com/quilts-for-sale/finished-item/big-flower-quilt-finished-quilt-56-x57-ready-to-ship/

2 Newly Listed Quilts, fun sized beauty’s

handmade quilts

So Im doing some fall clearing out of odd shaped quilts ( throw sized) and doing this beautiful Digital print.

I have 2 of these on the purples and blues, and this one in reds and orange. Both are just as beautiful depending on your colors.

I have so much fun making it my pet project for the week. I can quilt a lot simper and quicker….. but that’s not the point with these floral printed designs. The Floral in the center is printed which I quilted over, and then I added the borders, double batting, and of course my favorite part…. the free motion quilting. lots to look at, and great texture with this one. The tri-fecta of quilts…. LOL well and works great for these smaller quilts.

Its up and listed here : https://quiltsbytaylor.com/quilts-for-sale/finished-item/handmade-quilt-for-sale-7/

Also Finished and listed this week, a Throw size ( 57 X 78) in the pattern I offer called ” Summer in the Park”

its a great quilt for using up my scraps, sometimes when Im between things I will sit and make these units, knowing I wont get back to them for a while. Then one day I grab time and put them together. Thats what I did here. So its an odd size, longer than wide, but its super cute and I gave it some love with the free motion.

It can be located here: https://quiltsbytaylor.com/quilts-for-sale/finished-item/quilt-for-sale-8/

Also on deck, Hunters Star quilt, with Blue and White I also have this available on a Made To Order

located here: https://quiltsbytaylor.com/quilts-for-sale/made-to-order-quilts/hunters-star/

Thats all I got this week! I hope this finds everyone well!

Newly finished! Beautiful Digital Print by Kauffman.

I gave it the borders and quilting.

Super cute! would be a great addition to the right room, couch. This one is finished and ready to ship!

would make a Great Christmas gift! https://quiltsbytaylor.com/quilts-for-sale/finished-item/quilt-for-sale-6/

( i Know hate to think of December… but as a quilter this is the time to be getting ready! πŸ™‚

And I am in the process of quilting this little nugget. πŸ™‚

I have done lots of star quilts. I run out of ideas of how to quilt them, and sometimes i pick one motif and do the blocks all the same. This time I decided to do each block slightly different. It sorta messed with my need to be neat and tidy… ( I call it useful OCD) BUT once you throw caution to the wind, I can roll with variety/ mixed motifs. And the stars themselves aren’t the same either so it works out perfect! I haven’t decided yet as to how to do the other half of the border, I will save that for last…. LOL Over all its going to be a sweet little quilt. I have also used a chiffon yellow thread, which doesn’t really show in the pics, but a great small detail when you see it in real time.

Ive edited this listing if you would like to order a quilt like this here: https://quiltsbytaylor.com/quilts-for-sale/made-to-order-quilts/modern-star-made-to-order/

And… Next up for quilting is Doubly Charmed 2.0 In Nany Blue. This one is a beauty, and its a King so Its a big project!

Im excited to start dropping thread on this one πŸ™‚

You can order doubly charmed here: https://quiltsbytaylor.com/quilts-for-sale/made-to-order-quilts/double-charmed-made-to-order/

Newly Finished, Irish Chain Quilt, Red and White

red and white quilt

Newly Finished! Newly Listed!

So this one is another spin off the double charmed quilt too.

I just used 1 color, and instead of stars I opted to leave it mostly all white. And used 1 red fabric. It does have a little variegation to it, like a artistic smudge design. It looks darker in the pics than it is. Bright beautiful red.

Super fun for me to quilt! I did some ( a lot ) of ruler work with the scallops, and circles and cross hatching. But I did some free motion quilting with the 2 styles of feathers. Lots of detail the pics cant show. Great textile to it.

All of my quilting is hand guided, meaning its not just put onto a computer and walk away and let the machine do it.

I actually laid this quilt top all out flat before I loaded it onto the machine, and marked the whole design out with a marker.

That was fun too! scribbling all over πŸ™‚ It turned out amazing πŸ™‚

So Its ready for a forever home, and is truly a keepsake quilt to cherish and love for many years to come πŸ™‚

Here’s the link to the Finished Irish Chain quilt , Red and White 100 X 103 here: https://quiltsbytaylor.com/quilts-for-sale/made-to-order-quilts/red-and-white-finished/
