Latest customer quilts.

Here are a few customer quilts I've done lately.

This one needed a panto and I had nothing that would work so I took the flower from this bottom picture
and made a panto out of it. I think it came out great.

This is the panto I came up with. I call it Plumaria.

I didn't want to give this one back. I love Civil War prints.
As you can see , this one started out as a real headache.

But I think I did a pretty good job of beating it into submission.
I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Need ideas on this one.

This is a quilt from my favorite customer. It's a block of the month Santa quilt.
So far I did the SID and went around each applique but I'm at a loss on what to do
with the backgrounds. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate any imput.

Desperate need of ideas

I have this large queen (95 x 114) to do and have no ideas what to do in the blocks. She wants custom.
I would appreciate any ideas you might have. The blocks measure 6" x 7 3/4".

QOVs etc

I know it's been a very long time since I blogged. My bad!

As some of you may know, my daughter is an Army Captain stationed at the hospital at Ft. Stewart, Georgia.
I told her I was quilting a QOV (quilts of valor, quilts given to wounded soldiers) she wanted to know why they don't get any. So I started out to make quilts for them. In the last month I have 4 done. The first one was made with blocks that a friend made. I put them together with some solid white and quilted a star that I found on clip art. I went over each line several times with gold thread to make them stand out.
The second one was a quilt that was left over from ones we made for Katrina victims and the last 2 were made up with 2 1/2" strips and squares.
We will deliver them when we go out on the 23rd.

I got the borders put on the last one and will get it quilted and bound tomorrow.
I am asking/begging for red, white and blue fabric. If you have any to spare would you please consider donating it? I love what I'm doing but there is no way I can do it alone.
If you have some to donate, please message me for my address and thank you very much in advance.

Site for professionals

This is a site I just joined for professionals to show off their blogs and their wares. I came across it from another quilter and thought it was very interesting. When you have time, grab a cup of coffee and sit a while looking it over.

For a while, I am going to start posting pictures of the quilt patterns I have for sale (or anything else new that I come up with). Here are a couple for today.




 Almost all the patterns are designed for beginner or advanced quilters and most come with multiple size options.  All patterns have been tested for accuracy.

I hope everyone has a great week.

New rulers

After the first pass

After the second pass

After the third pass
After the 4th, last pass

I saw a wavy border treatment that I really liked but had a really hard time doing it freehand so I came up with a ruler to do it a lot more uniform. It will come in 2 sizes (patent pending). I used the smaller one yesterday on a little charity quilt I put together. The muslin strips were finished at 5". The squares I already had were cut at 3 1/2".

This ruler is really easy to use but does have to be flipped every other time.
They will be available through Leslie Allen at in West Virginia.

These are the two sizes we came up with.
