Im so Excited this quilt got the finishing touches this week and is on its way to its home!
The Quilting on this one really softened the pattern to the eye. When I first started it basic blocks seemed very striking, and with the nice sharp contrast between the Primary Colors that were chosen by the customer, up against the bright white was really sharp. With the quilting it softened it. In the end it turned out beautiful!
I kept thinking as I made it, I have to wash these colors, and the worry about color running. BUT thats the beauty of custom made. I pre washed all these fabrics before I made it. So it washed up after wards amazing. Bright whites and sharp colors. Whew!!! 🙂
Using quality fabrics has a lot to do with it also. Nice fabrics dont let color go as much as a lesser quality fabric would have. I have no fear to put dark and light colors together, if done right, it can be done. 🙂 I was proud to ship out this beauty 🙂
This quilt could be done in a LOT of other colors
and be soft and homey feeling, Or modern feel with
Black and white prints, or fun scrappy mix of multi colors.
I have this smaller one I did that was the test one, it was super
cute and great for a throw Size Quilt.
Sooooo now Im back onto one of my many other projects,
But its a big day for me whenever I ship out a big quilt.
This Quilt was made for a family member, she challenged me to do it, 🙂 Well, actually she sent me the Book, the Ruler, and the fabrics too. So I took the hint. and I did it. I never thought about listing it on a made to order till now, It was several years ago and it is a challenging pattern, but It turned out amazing. The fabrics were what made this one so cool. They were very high end Cottons, with that shimmer to them. Beautiful~
I’m willing to make this pattern again, They wouldnt have to be in these shades of colors, could be scrappy multi colored ( always my favorite) Or in modern Black and white, lots of ways to go with this color way.

Soooooooo I have this website pretty much running, It may not be pretty and some links aren’t connected right, but its working. I want to catch up mu Blog with groupings of Quilts, so I’m on a mission to get things all set up and a warm fuzzy feeling. LOL (im actually ready to toss this computer out the window) BUT… I think its over all looking pretty good. So Back to some of my favorite blast from the past, Custom Ordered Quilts that I have made for customers.
This Beautiful Quilt Pattern, is a Display of a Classic Patchwork Quilt.
Trip Around the World
I’ve made this one several times as shown here in Pictures. Sometimes its hard to visualize a quilt pattern in your colors. I’m good at that part, I see the finish line first, then I make a plan. Sometimes people have to see a picture and say have it be just like that one. I get it. But also know there are so many things you can customize to make it look completely different. This quilt is a classic pattern and is easy to visualize it in your colors

Well i decided to do something more to my black and white 4 patch blocks, now they are a little bigger and a whole lot bolder looking. Now what…they need something… lol be back when i figure this one out a little more. It’s always FUN to figure out what to do with all the spare parts i collect. ♡♡♡ Sew ya Later! 🙂
So far I have tried 2 Color ways in this quilt. Fall colors, in Queen, which is a finished quilt.
This min is getting some bubbles on it 🙂
Im doing the free motion quilting on it today. it’s looking so cute. Doing what I call moon walk, cause the roundness of the circles remind me of the moon’s surface.
The fall colored Quilt is quilted with a denser meander and straight lines through the stars. It’s a nice textile feel and will be around a long time. for now im back to quilting the pink and blue cutie 🙂 will post back finished pics 🙂
This pink and Blue one has fewer blocks because I did a pieced sashing in between them, so they can show the difference in how they can be ordered 🙂 Blog on ” How Placing an Order Works here”
So Im still having trouble with a few things in the site. Cant seem to display the separate categories I have labeled all my products, so I could have direct link to the “finished quilt ” section. I had it yesterday, today its not there… hahaha maybe something I did~I dunno. menus and categories arent playing well together~~:)
So Im moving on~~ and starting to build up something in this blog to enjoy. and sharing one of my favorite Hand Dying experiences for a quilt. Orange Crush. I made so many different shades and they all worked together so well. I never knew I could like orange so well. 🙂 anyhoo~ Back to sewing!
I started listing My King size Quilts, But Im also trying to figure out how to put the size options in, havent found that trick yet, I would like to find that before I start listing all individually. Ohhhh what Im learning! 🙂
I am going to be adding pictures of my quilts, so if you have any questions, or want to place an order, I can, just might take me a bit to get all my ducks in a row 🙂
thanks for stopping by !
My full Etsy store is set up for orders until then.
Ok , So I’m off and running! so much to learn! But I have some basics up. Whew~~ I need a nap!
I have this site up and working, it just might not make sense. The clicks don’t exactly go where they should, but they are all there.If you have any questions about an Order For a Handmade Quilt, I’m here, Im starting to make blog post of all my quilts, so you can “eventually” see the making of each design, I have all the photos, I just have to get them all on here. I guess I thought after 3 weeks, I would have more understanding of web settings, but I so appreciate the sites that are user friendly… Im trying to get my site closer to that, but it all takes time. 🙂
I do Have my full Etsy store, I have been on their site about 5 years and its all set up there too.
Its my plan to use this site as a way to show the different things that can be done, and custom choices that can be made, but aren’t easy to do on Etsy.
Custom Quilting is hard to ” list” each quilt is so different and some just simply a lot more work than others. I will be posting 2 to 3 times a week in here, with most progress photos of whatever Im working on. So if you like to see the “making” of these quits drop your email in my blog list and it will send you updates directly to your email.
Thank you so much for looking, and Bare with me as I build up a lifetime of beautiful quilts on here so everyone can see them 🙂
