A Quilt for Charlotte

Bonnie put this little quilt together for her 3 year old granddaughter, Charlotte. I'm sure she will love to spread it out on the floor to play on or cuddle up with it as her parents read her the story of The Hungry Caterpillar! Such a sweet quilt for a sweet little girl!

Bonnie chose the Dragonflies quilt pattern and Sunlight colored thread.

The beautiful butterfly!

The primary colored blocks look so nice on the side.

The cute caterpillar!

The backing of the quilt!

I'm getting there.....

Well, nine done and one to go! These are fleece throws that I have quilted for the men in the wedding this fall. I hope we have the appropriate team for each person. One more to quilt and then I get to bind them all! Almost there......

Angie's Flag Quilt

Alyce has made yet another flag quilt using the tumbler cutout patterns. This one is for her daughter, Angie. Just in time for the 4th of July! I think there is still enough time for me to make a 4th of July quilt, or NOT! Anyway Alyce's family is all set to celebrate! Nice quilt!

The thread color was dyed natural and the quilting pattern was called Stars and Stripes.

The nice cool blue backing of her quilt.

Totes For the Wedding Party!

I have the totes all done! My daughter had me make totes for all the females in the wedding party and all 16 of them are done. Check that item off the list! She will pack them with goodies and they will serve as a tote for their items for the wedding this coming fall. Hope I spelled all the names correctly!

Donna's Three Times the Sparkle Quilt

Donna, a new customer, brought this disappearing 9 patch yesterday. She picked the Star Sparkle design because she likes things that Sparkle, I had the sparkle pattern open to show her, one of my cat's names is Sparkle, she had a toy poodle named Sparkle, and her email has the word Sparkle in it, so that was definitely a "SIGN"! LOL. She chose Rosewood thread for me to use for the quilting. It's very patriotic, nicely pieced with a lot of interesting fabrics. Great job! :)

The pieced backing of the quilt. The stars really show up on this!

Lucille's Incredible Quilt

I am always amazed at the quilts that my customers bring to me to quilt, but the quilts that Lucille made were truly beyond amazing! Her col0r choices, the patterns she chose to make, and the fabric combinations were really something! Her sense of what went together and her flawless piecing were such a treat to see.
I never met Lucille, but I know her quilts and she was a gifted quilter. But this was a sad quilt to quilt, her last quilt that she had made, her very last quilt as it will be placed on her casket next week. Lucille passed on Wednesday and she will be missed dearly, but her family will find comfort in her wonderful quilts and the great memories that she shared while making them.

Hundreds of strips of fabric!

Can you imagine piecing these blocks?

I used Tex Blue colored thread on the quilt.

The blue border next to the pieced inner border, just incredible!

The blue backing showed the Meandering Loops.

Marie's Aussie Quilt (I call it Flower Boxes)

Marie has constructed this bright and cheery quilt for the railing on her stairway. It will certainly be a bright spot in her home! Great quilt!

Her borders show the Ivy Trellis quilting pattern in Greenette thread.

I love these blue flowers!

She likes bright colors and gorgeous flowers!

She has some interesting butterflies and leaves in these boxes.

The brilliant quilt backing, WOW!

Marcia's Gridlock Quilt

Marcia LOVES Kaffe Fassett's patterns and books and so it really did not surprise me at all when she brought this beautiful quilt to me to quilt and it was none other than a Kaffe pattern called Gridlock. Marcia's choices of color and pattern makes this a very appealing quilt! And so nicely pieced of course!

Marcia chose black thread to enhance the quilt.

Marcia chose a simple meandering for her quilting pattern.

Betty's Elegant Feathers Quilt

Betty was given this hand pieced scrappy quilt from a relative who did not want it. She added the borders and I quilted a new pattern called Elegant Feathers in dyed natural thread. It really is a wonderful collection of fabrics from I believe the 40's and 50's with some 30's thrown in the mix! Nice quilt!

The wide borders that she intends to applique with leaves and vines.

The white on white quilt backing.

Quilts for Carisbrook, Take a Look!

It's been a few months since the quilt blocks were sent to Australia and the show was being put up for last week's show. Take a look at Wilma's blog and see what's happening! She sent a message to the Statler Sisters yahoo group that with all of our floods, tornadoes, etc., she wishes she could do something in return for what we did for the little town of Carisbrook!

Take Another Look at this quilt!

Dallas just picked up her quilt and was talking about the yellow heart on her quilt! Boy, did I miss it! I was so busy looking at all the little different prints in the quilt that I totally missed the special heart in yellow. Can you see it? Maybe everyone else did, but I didn't! How NEAT!

Brenda's Baby Quilt

Brenda is a grandmother! So she bought this panel and had me put the name labels on it and quilt it with her signature hearts! I think little baby Anderson will like these little dogs on his quilt!

Was there any doubt?

The grandbaby's name is Anderson, so of course he needed his name on his quilt!

The quilting pattern was called I Love It.

One of the cute puppies on the quilt!

The thread color was Chambray.
