Wonky Crosses and a shop!

I’m so excited that I have finally opened an online shop.  Won’t you please take a look?  It’s right here.  Don’t see what you’re looking for?  Let me know! I’m happy to do custom work.  I’ll also be adding new things so check back often.

One thing in there is this wonky cross quilt I made a little while ago!

It would make the sweetest little baby gift.

Made from blues, greens, and neutrals from my stash, it’s backed in a vintage sheet, longarm quilted in a swirling pattern with a pale gray thread, and bound in binding scraps.

It’s available now for $300, so you should probably just go ahead and get it :)

Tetris!

TetrisI finally finished my Tetris quilt and I’m in love.  It’s so bright and cheerful and awesome.

I used an assortment of FreeSpirit designer solids for the bricks.  I realize that the design isn’t actually correct (in the game, if you fill a whole row, it disappears) but I was more worried about it being aesthetically pleasing.  Which I think it is.  Very much so.

I quilted it in orange thread with a jagged meander that gave it a lot of texture. It’s machine bound with Heath in black and labeled.

It  measures 51″ x 68″ and it’s for sale at a local record/video game/book store called Reanimator for $400. If you’re interested in purchasing it, give them a call! Now I’m ready to tackle Space Invaders.

A field study of triangles.

I put this simple quilt together with some Anna Maria Horner Field Study (a current favorite, if you can’t tell!) and solids from the Little General and I love it! Especially under the red bud trees just before sunset.FS Triangles FS Triangles I quilted it at Eileen Quilts in a bubble design and backed it in the butterflies, one of my favorite large scale prints.

I bound this one by machine.  I don’t like it as much as a hand stitched one but the binding has begun to come off on a couple older quilts of mine, what with the heavy wear of having two dogs that like to pull quilts from their places.  Hopefully machine sewn binding will stand the test of time and I’ll keep getting better at it.

I’m excited to say that this quilt is available for sale at the Little General! Hopefully the first of many, Gina is graciously showing and selling some of my quilts made of fabric from her beautiful shop.  If you’re in or around Winston Salem, be sure to stop by!

It’s Blowy Out There.

Blowy I finished piecing and basting this a few months back and finally got it quilted.  I rarely name quilts but a friend had said it reminded her of the wind and that sounded better than “half square triangles arranged randomly” :)

After the mini I made for Tara, I wanted to do more straight line quilting. I did a spiral echo design in the white areas and while I’m still not totally confident in my straight line skills, this was good practice. The back is pretty puffy in the un-quilted parts, but I’m really happy with how it came out!

It’s backed in more scraps, bound in Flea Market Fancy seed print in grey, and labelled.

I was so happy to take photos in the park on my block, pinned to a dogwood tree.  Happy spring!
