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.
** some of the pictures are from before finishing, and during construction **
So Today Im busy doing the Border Blocks, For My Primary Star Colored Quilt. This one is a commissioned Piece, so they choose the colors, and the pattern~ Then I took it form there. Its a Sharp and striking combo. Bold and contrasting with the white.
Although It wouldnt be the colors I like in my home, I can vision this in many color ways. If you changed the white to Gray and added teal cool tones, or rustic home colors with off white all would be amazing . I have a smaller one, I started with, its with mixed colors with Gray, <– link to it
I struggle with the so many ideas, and not enough time to implement them all.. LOL BUT this Pattern could look soft and warm feeling too if you were to change to a softer array of colors.
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

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”
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 🙂
