Nebo Modern Quilt Guild Mini Swap!

Our guild had a mini swap :)


My partner was Katie Gardner, one of my long time quilty BFFs!


Her favorite color is sapphire blue.


and she loves butterflies!


I saw this pattern all over Instagram and I knew she would love it!


That pattern is called Take Wing by Lilly Ella.  It can be found HERE.


It was a little time consuming to make, but not hard.


For the quilting, I wanted to create some movement.


I am madly in love with it!



I sure hope she likes it!


The binding is from Emily Herricks Technicolor fabric collection.

Circa 1958 Embroidery

A few months ago, my mother in law showed me 12 hand embroidered squares she made back in the 50's when she was expecting her first child.







I convinced her to let me make her a very special quilt with them :)

Starry Night


This beautiful quilt was made by a good friend of mine.


I am SO in love with it, I had a REALLY hard time giving it back to her!


She requested straight lines on the stars and let me loose on the white :)


LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Custom T-Shirt Quilt


An awesome customer commissioned this t-shirt quilt for her granddaughter's high school graduation.


They had saved all of her special t-shirts from high school.


It turned out super cute!


Of course, there had to be some awesome animal print for the back :)


It was really fun to quilt this on my longarm.


I chose to do an allover paisley and swirl pattern.


Such great memories!





As always, hand binding, my favorite!!
