Backyard Blooms heart quilt

My friend, Allison, of Cluck Cluck Sew, designed another beautiful line of fabrics last summer.

It's called, "Backyard Blooms".

You can read about it here on her blog.

I was lucky enough to grab a fat quarter bundle and I knew immediately which pattern I was going to use for them.

This cute Buggy Barn method heart pattern is so fun and easy to create.



I quilted randomly spaced horizontal straight lines.  


See this cute chicken print she designed - perfect for her brand!


I put a white cuddle minky on the back - for that snuggly feel.


It's such a sweet line of fabrics - Allison, you're so creative.  
Thank you!

Jan's beauties.....

My friend, Jan, from Florida, always creates such 
beautiful quilts.

It's so much fun to quilt them for her.

Here they are.....in no particular order...

I love the indigo blues in this one - I quilted a wood grain design in the background and cross-hatched the "plus" area.


Up next is this sweet 25-patch....I quilted row after row of single loops.


This 3rd quilt is so striking.
I love how the white stars stand out between the 
squares on-point.
I quilted vertical straight lines.


Pretty backing - love these large florals.


Number 4 is a fun "plus" quilt - these prints are adorable; eggs and chickens!
I quilted an -edge-to-edge wave.  
Gives it movement.


Her backings are always so fun, too.


And number five is a favorite of mine.....the "Snowflake" quilt.
Jan used some really fun Cotton & Steel prints along with some from her stash for the background.
I decided to cross-hatch the entire quilt.


This is her backing - another fabulous Cotton & Steel "Frost". 
(I copied her and I'm using the same backing for one of my Snowflake quilts - perfect!)


Thank you, Jan, for always sending me such fun quilts 
to work on.
I love them all!

Get out and vote!

 Last year I quilted this patriotic quilt for Bev, from Virginia.

Now that the elections are fast approaching I thought I would post about it.

I quilted wavy lines through the flag, outlined the words and did a swirly design in the background.

Bev's backing is great and appropriate.


I love America! 
I hope everyone has voted.

Christmas Quilt Deadline fast approaching.....

 The deadline for getting your Christmas quilts to 

me this year is:

October 1st, 2020

It seems as though summer had a slow arrival and now all of a sudden it's almost fall!


That means Christmas is just around the corner.


And so are snowflakes!


I'm still about 4 months out but I'm starting to get a little smidge caught up so I am able to set aside some time for those holiday quilts.


Happy Holidays - a little early!

simple addition...

My friend, Carol - from Montana, made this adorable 
baby quilt for a little guy.
She used Allison's pattern, "Simple Addition".   



You can find that cute pattern here on her 
website, "Cluck Cluck Sew".
I think it's so cute how Carol randomly set 
in some red blocks.  
I quilted it row-by-row with single loops.



The backing is a darling panel - "Bear Hug".  



It's an Art Gallery print 
(of course it is.....because it's so dang cute).
You can find one here in this Etsy shop.



Such a cute quilt, Carol.  
Thank you for sharing with us.

Sherri's really cool quilts....

It's been forever since I've posted any new quilts on here!

Sherri, from Alaska, has been keeping herself 
focused sewing beautiful quilts.
Here are just three of the many quilts she has 
completed this year:
This has got to be one of my favorite "Drunkard's Path" quilts I've ever seen.
Sherri used mostly Kaffe Fassett prints and the perfect low volume background pieces.


 I straight line quilted it about 1" spaced horizontal lines.


She chose a red backing that reads stripes.  Perfect!


I never get tired of seeing these slice-shift-sew trees.
I stipple quilted this cutie.


The backing is a nice Cotton & Steel Christmas print.


60 degree triangles are always so striking to me.  
I have tons of them cut out - just need to get sewing.
That pink Kaffe backing is the perfect piece 
(and one of my favorites).


All bound and ready to be snuggled under.


Sherri always creates such beautiful quilts......nice job, sweet lady!

Jan's lovelies....

My friend, Jan, from Florida, creates the most beautiful, soothing quilts. 
I've been quilting for Jan since I first purchased my own Gammill quilting machine 8 years ago.
I believe she was one of my first customers and we've become "virtual" friends ever since.
Here are two of her most recent quilts.
This one is based on a wilderness theme and is going to some family members who also love the outdoors.  
It's perfect!


It has a "bear" theme - LOVE this cute bear print.
I quilted an all-over wood grain design.



Then Jan adds this adorable panel on the back!



Jan's next quilt is this beauty.
I wish I had space large enough to photograph the entire quilt.


It has the most wonderful prints surrounded by a darling ity bity mushroom background print.



I quilted horizontal straight lines about 1" apart.  
Such a fun quilting design and adds just enough texture without distracting from the piecing.



The back is gorgeous birds.  
I'm crazy in love with birds! 


Thank you Jan, for sending pretty quilts my way and sharing their beauty with me.
