Here is my work space, Im lucky I can leave it all out so when I have short times I can sit down and start working right away. But this is 1 of 3 work spaces I have set up. I have at one time been working on 6 quilts at once. I look back at that and think I dont know how I did it! Im always working on more than one.  I love multi tasking 🙂

so this week Im going to start making the 4 blocks. mixing and matching in sets of 4. Its a lot to lay out this many loose blocks for pics, so once I get those assembled I can really see what we have 🙂 Be back soon~

Working With Scraps! What to Do with all the left over Parts?

Scrappy Quilts from Quilt “left overs”

So what do you do with all the extra cuts, and pieces? Well  I’ve  had to get creative sometimes 🙂

If you ever wonder when you see a quilt… wth? ~~ think about that..

it could be parts from other quilts,  that you eventually

have to do something with 🙂

Ive made some real uglo’s over the years, LOL ~ BUT…

Mini Quilt

This one might be super cute. This one starts from Blocks and parts from the Original quilt. It  was a  border Idea, that I decided not to go with On my Primary Star Quilt.  

King/Queen Quilts

I went with a better border , for that quilt.

So, now I have this 4 patch cluster of blocks to work with

I made quite a few before I decided… ha~~ cause thats what i do 😉

Anyhoo, thinking about tricking out a cool border for it.

Will focus on it being a “mini” for now, but its already pretty big. We will See~

What will become of this mini? 🙂

Primary Star Quilt, Getting Border Treatment

King/Queen Quilts

Star Quilt, Queen Quilt

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.

 

Primary Colors, Handmade Quilt
Made To Order Quilts

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.

Doodles on Fabric are so fun!!

The texture this type of quilting  is so funky and fun!

I will be doing a Whole Cloth Quilt, with this type of Quilting in the up coming weeks, I have someone special that I have been planning out what to do, and I decided a whole 1 piece quilt, with this style of quilting would be amazing!

So that’s next on the List to get started.

For now I have the Shams that can be ordered, and after I finish the larger quilt I will be having it up for ordering. Im pretty excited about whole Cloth Quilts, as it really lets the “quilting pop”.

Join my mailing list if you want to see these projects in the making coming up  .. soon 🙂

https://quilts-by-taylor-designs.mystagingwebsite.com/Quilts,%20Home%20and%20Living,%20Bedding/about-me/

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

Young girls quilt, Christmas gift it was for her. I still remember <3

Finished Quilt

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”

Im Under Construction , But Im Learning WordPress slowly

Ok , So I’m off and running! so much to learn! But I have some basics up. Whew~~ I need a nap!

9/30/17

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. 🙂

handmade Quilts Blog

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 🙂
