I've been without a project for a while but am excited to have two new ones to work on.  First is a remembrance quilt.  I haven't made one in over a year so I am thankful for the opportunity to help bring someone comfort in their loss. This one is made from the shirts...

There is a story behind this quilt.  With not so much of a good ending.  This was supposed to be a wedding gift for my nephew.  I asked them what colors they liked and his fiancé supplied a picture of some soft greens and blues.  I managed to find a fat quarter pack in...

After a very busy and productive day, this one is done. The pattern is Idyllic by Corey Yoder. I used a new pantograph for it and was very happy with how it turned out.  I purchased a very colorful three yard cut (108" x 108") from Keepsake quilting and it was great no...

I made this quilt a few weeks ago as it seemed the perfect gift for our sweet contractors who are building our dream home.  I was able to incorporate their logo in the label.  I found several free 'house' quilt patterns online, picked one, and adapted it a bit....

Not exactly what I named it, but it is a cute name!  I received my magazines today in the mail and it never gets old.  So thankful I get to do this.  I haven't made as much lately, but I really enjoy trying to come up with something the magazines will like.  I know it'...

I've gotten so many requests for this pattern that I am going to show it again.  If you'd like,  feel free to copy and paste it into a word type document, then you can print it off at your convenience. Super easy and makes a great lap size or toddler size quilt....
