Cherished Memories.

Hello Fellow Followers,

I want to share a unique and memorable quilt with all of you.

This memory quilt was made from my client’s, uncles favorite shirts.

Some shirts where Hawaiian, some where Western shirts, along with some of his favorite sweaters and neck ties.

The design was simple, with nine patch blocks and the focal blocks in the center. An example would be the Hawaiian shirt in the center it was designed, to have the collar lift off the quilt, it’s quite unique and special.

I feel like each block in this quilt has its own story to tell. Making this quilt a very special keepsake, for my clients Aunt.

I kept the top quilting, to a minimum as I wanted the blocks to be the main focus.

I used ribbon candy along with some simple meandering between the ties and knit blocks.

I hope you enjoy, the pictures and the story that each block holds.

Thank you, Stefanie it was a pleasure working with you.

Until next time, I hope you have a “Sew Happy Day”

Country Rails

Hello Fellow Followers,

I hope the month of June, has been full of fun and adventure for you all.

I want to share with you all, an adorable quilt made by a wonderful new quilter.

Alison, used a fun traditional pattern called “Rail Fence”. I love the beautiful reds and creams she used along with a black printed fabric. The fabrics that she used have cute sewing themed phrases, on them that are spot on for quilters.

The design for top quilting, that I used was straight lines and swirly flowers. With a string of ribbon candy on the outer border.

It turned out beautifully!

Thank you, Alison it was a pleasure working with you!

Until next time “Have a Sew Happy Day”

Summer Suede.

Hello Fellow Followers,

I hope it’s a beautiful sunny day, in your neighborhood. If not, then this post about a unique, one of a kind Suede quilt will surely do the trick.

This was actually, the first Suede quilt that I have Longarmed. It was so soft and supple. It reminded me of the velveteen quilts, that my grandmother had when I was a child.

This quilt was perfectly pieced, and it had such warm inviting colors. After consulting with the quilt maker and drawing up a rough design.

It was decided upon, that the quilt would look beautiful with loops and orange peels along with, free floating feathers and pebbling in the leaf blocks. Then in the first boarder, ribbon candy and then finished off with a ribbon of leaves and loopy swirls.

This quilt is such a show stopper! I hope you enjoy the pictures, it was early morning when I had taken them, so the beautiful details where hard to see.

Thank you, Thereasa it was a pleasure working with you.

Until next time “Have a Sew Happy Day”

Free Spirited

Hello Fellow Followers,

It’s been a whirl wind, of activity’s at my house. School is on it’s final week, which the boys are so happy about. It makes me more aware, that I will soon have a middle schooler and a senior…

To the heart of this post, I want to share with you all, a gorgeous horse quilt that Carolyn, made for her niece. It’s beautifully pieced and is so unique.

The panel in the center, is of two high spirited horse’s. Running free with there heads held high, in such a majestic way.

So to accent the quilt I decided a free floating feather would look nice, on the outer border followed by horseshoes and stars. Then a border of ribbon candy, along with leaves and an outline of the horses along with swirls.

It turned out beautifully I really had a lot of fun with this quilt.

Thank you, Carolyn ❤️

Until next time, I hope you enjoy the pictures and “Have a Sew Happy Day”

Hello Fellow Followers,

I hope your spring has started off beautifully and it’s been full of blessings.

I want to share, with you all two fun modern quilt’s, made for two special granddaughter’s graduation presents.

The quilt’s where made from the pattern called “Take Ten” this is such a versatile pattern it can be made with scraps or with pretty focal fabrics.

The first quilt was made with beautiful grey’s accented with blues and creams it turned out wonderfully.

I kept the design simple with loops and a large diamond design in the center along with feathers trailing up the sides.

The second quilt, was made with vibrant reds and creams, paired with a fun heart print in grey.

I wanted the two quilts to be unique so I quilted hearts with feathers trailing up the sides along with soft loops it turned out beautifully.

Thank you, Linda for the privilege to quilt for you and to be a part, of something so special. I hope both your granddaughters loved their quilts.

Friendship and Love.

Hello Fellow Followers,

I hope you all are well, I want to share with you all two very special quilts. that Carolyn sent to be Long-Arm quilted.

The first quilt, is a very special quilt made with love, for a new adopted member of Carolyn’s family. You can feel the love, that radiates from this adorable quilt.

I wanted this quilt to be extra special, so I quilted larger lettering per Carolyn’s request I think it turned out fabulous.

The second quilt is a beautiful, Dresden Plate quilt. Carolyn made this amazing quilt for a dear friend, as they have been dear friend’s for 60 years! That’s so inspiring and what a wonderful blessing.

I wanted to keep the Dresden’s soft so I just outlined them and added free floating clamshells. Around the outside to make the center’s pop.

I added circles with loops to represent the circle of friendship and love along with Carolyn’s friends family’s names in each corner block I love how it turned out.

Thank you, Carolyn for the honor to be apart of your special quilts.

Until next time, I hope you have a Sew Happy Day!

Batik Bliss Quilt.

Hello Fellow Followers,

I can’t believe that it’s almost May, I hope the beginning of everyone’s year has went well and spring is arriving in your neighborhood.

Today I want to share, with everyone five beautiful quilts, made by Lee.

I think the first quilt, is called “Crystal Blooms” but I may be incorrect. This wonderfully pieced beauty is just spectacular I can see, the love that went in to this quilt.

I wanted the top quilting to accent the quilt top so I outlined the batik fabrics. Then stitched in the ditch, along the white batik fabrics then added large pebbling and flowing feathers, in the larger accent spikes it turned out beautifully.

The Second quilt was a fun one it’s called “The Labyrinth Quilt” it’s like a quilt maze that teases your brain. I wanted this quilt to have the same dimension and complexity of the maze.

So I quilted angled straight lines, on the lighter grey and then a heavily saturated pebbling. In the dark grey leaving the white open and in the boarders, I went with a straight line and pebbling design.

The third quilt was a fun whimsical yellow and green dots quilt. I went with simple loops and triangle accents along with ribbon candy and an infinity loop on the outer boarder.

The fourth quilt, was a cute scrappy brown square and rectangle quilt. I went with simple swirls and accented the large squares with diamond peels.

The fifth quilt, was a very pretty quilt it had a Southwestern feel to it. I outlined the free floating blocks and quilted swirls and outline the squares along with a fun zig zag design in the navy blue off set square’s

I had a lot of fun, quilting these unique quilts.

Thank You, Lee I appreciate the honor to quilt for you.

Until next time, I hope you all have a

“Sew Happy Day”

The Wedding Star.

Hello Fellow Followers,

I wanted to share a fabulous quilt, with you all that my friend Gayleen made for a special Bride.

This Carpenter Star, is so lovely with it’s royal blues and crisp grey’s paired with white focal blocks, that give the quilt movement and complexity.

When Gayleen sent me a picture of her quilt, I knew exactly how I would top quilt it.

I started off with accenting the star design. With a feather design outlined with pebbling, then in the larger white squares I did a diamond that was cross hatched with scrolling feathers on the outside accenting it. Along with clam shells in the larger open squares.

I also wanted this fabulous quilt to have a secondary design in the large star.

I think it turned out beautifully I hope you enjoy the pictures of this amazing quilt.

Thank you, Gayleen.

Until next time, I hope you have a

“Sew Happy Day”

Spring Flowers.

Hello Fellow Followers, I hope spring has started to appear, at your home. If not then these beautiful quilts, will tide you over until your spring flowers begin to bloom.

Carolyn, sent two beautiful quilts, to be quilted. The first quilt is called “Natures Garden” this beauty, has so many beautiful flowers and leaves. It was quilted the same as the suggested quilting diagram, that Carolyn, had sent along with it.

I sometimes add some of my own personal touches, such as a swirl here and a feather their. As I really dislike, following someone else’s work. I like creating my own canvas, for a quilt which often leads me, in to over quilting a design but it’s really worth it.

The next quilt I’m calling the “Flourishing Flowers” as it has such pretty embroidered flowers, in the center’s of each on point block, with a soft blue sashing.

I think both of Carolyn’s, quilts turned out beautifully.

Thank you, Carolyn for trusting me with your treasure’s

Until next time have a “Sew Happy Day”

Jenn. 💐
