Customer Quilts

I've had the opportunity to quilt some really fun and beautiful quilts lately. Here are a few I snapped a picture of. These are all made by Melanie, who does beautiful work.

Wonky Log Cabin

Another Wonky Log Cabin. 
I love them. 
They are just so much fun to make.
I actually sewed this top months and months ago. Sometimes it takes me awhile to actually get a back and get them quilted. 
This is mostly from scraps.

Are you guys sick of seeing this same collection of fabrics yet? I hope not, 'cause I'm not tired of playing with them yet.  :)
I love all the white with this one. I think it looks fun and fresh. 

I quilted this one with the smaller clam shells, and I love the quilting. 

And yes, it too is headed to the Shop

Fabric Giveaway here.

Craft Show

I just found out--yesterday--that I'll have a booth at a Holiday Boutique in Spanish Fork (400 N. Main). 
If you're local, come see me! :)

The threads are flying!  

First Snow Quilt (the second)

I made a quilt very similar to this one last year. 

It was very popular, and I just couldn't part with it! I used mine as a wall hanging last year. So I decided it was time to make one again. I love stars. I love how clean and fresh this looks. 
 This one is listed in my Shop.

Red + Aqua = Love

It's finished!
This quilt was so fun to make! I love making a wonky log cabin, they are really addicting. 
I quilted this one pretty heavily with my favorite, slightly variegated green King Tut thread. 
The backing is a solid Aqua, and the quilting really shows lovely on the back. 
 Do you just love this polka-dot binding?
 I think this quilt looks modern and fun.
 I've listed it in my Zibbet Shop.
