Ohio Star Quilt is finished! Handmade Quilts for sale

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!quilts for sale

Quilts For Sale
This quilt has classic Stippling Meander style quilting, A multi colored binded finished edge.

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.

cute and great for a throw Size Quilt.King Quilt Handmade Quilt

Sooooo now Im back onto one of my many other projects,

Custom Quilted Pillow Shams, blog

Quilted Pillow Shams

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 Quilted Pillow Shams

 

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 reaQuilted Pillow Shams Custom Quilted Pillow Shamslly 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.

 

Custom Quilted, Pillow Shams   Custom Quilted Pillow Shams

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

Today was a great day, Up early and got a lot done.

not wasting too much time trying to make adjustments on this site… I just wanna have fun LOL

anyhoo~~~I’m finishing up the Pink And Blue Mini this week, in the Uneven Star Quilt Pattern

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 🙂

Quilt for Sale
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”

Getting Moved in~ Back to Quilting ~ :)

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!

Building my Web site

Thank you for Considering Handmade!

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.

Sign up for my blog to see newest projects Im working. 🙂
