Its all finished! YAY!!!! It washed up wonderful! This quilt is not only beautiful, but it is going to be a very warm snuggly quilt, to whoever ends up with this one. It was super fun to make, and I will be listing it on a made to order basis. This one washed up to 80 by 82, and i have it shown on my Queen Log bed. Super sweet!
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~
Prepared the fabrics and Im ready to babysit this project the next 36 hours.
I really hope it turns out, I doing a graduated coloring from dark to light. means im going to have to lower the fabric I have rolled onto PVC slowly and let it process at different timings 🙂 Im shooting for a shades of Lilac, and want to do some custom freestyle quilting after I finish. Im only doing the front tonight the back will be another project. 🙂

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.
Here’s My Collection Of Custom Quilted Pillow Shams.
I wanted a way to show the different types of quilting styles, in a smaller project, and to show the different ways I can quilt a Quilt. I do all my Free Motion Quilting free hand. Meaning it’s not computerized quilting. So no 2 are exactly the same. All beautiful in their own way depending on your taste. These Decor Pillows are the perfect way to showcase some really awesome Quilting.
These Shams will out last the pillow, as I have made them very durable, by double batting them, and all the quilting that’s on them they surely aren’t going to fall apart. LOL
I use High Quality Thread, and a lot of them I have changed thread many times to include a multi colored Quilting. That doesn’t always show in the pictures. But They are super nice, and have been washed and dried flat to keep the quilting as it is. You can dry these it just changes the quilting a bit. But Since I have pre washed and dried them BEFORE and after I made them, they will stay this nice for Many years to come.
I will be doing some in more colors soon, for now Im focused on white so you can really see the quilting, which is what really makes these fabulous.
I dont include the actual pillow, it would cost more to ship the pillow than to buy the pillow. Most all the ones I make that are ready to ship are King Size Shams, I do have some standard Queen Sized, and some Square Pillows. You can custom order any of those sizes you prefer. Message me if you have any questions.
The thickness of these are different from a quilt. They are super soft and puffy when the pillow in inside, but they are thicker and more durable than a quilt. Awesome Decor Pillows.They make a real statement to a room, I have a colored one on my couch right now, and everyone always draws right to it. :)’
Any Hoo, Im back to sewing~ Sew ya later. Sign up for my Blog to see weekly post like this one 🙂
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”
I made the Lap Size Quilt one as my test run, its super cute, with Custom Quilting. Perfect for a Baby or young child. The quilting is sharp might look great in a sun room, or somewhere you want a pop of color.
Quilts are a great way to decorate a room, or as a focal point.
With this Quilt its going to be King Size Quilt, so I have a lot of work to do yet before I can even get to the quilting part. My favorite part… :)))
his Is a really sharp pattern with the basic primary colors I am a ways from a finished but this is a big day in my world.
I have done this one in several variations, Its a fun scrappy Quilt Pattern.
Anyhooooooo , Im back to work Everyone have a great day!
So Im back today and I have 1 whole piece for the center. Now I have some great pictures of how this pattern looks larger. Its a fun bright color way!
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’m in the process of transferring my Quilt business to here on my own site. I’m pretty excited about it.
My full Store on Etsy is there too if you would like to see my reviews and other listings.
My Etsy Store here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/QuiltsByTaylor
I’m just starting up this site, I’m having to learn a bunch of stuff that’s not sewing…. I’m struggling.. haha 🙂
But Its moving along pretty well for a newbie to web design. It can only get better right? 🙂
If you have ordered quilts from me before you may find your quilt in here somewhere on display.
As I make this site, I realize how MANY quilts I have made over the years. And thought how great would it be to have all my quilts on display at once together?? wow, that would be amazing. But… my quilts are all over the world. Last year alone I made 32 quilts.
I hope you enjoy looking around at my site so far, and seeing the art of my craft. and see the love put into my pieces.
