Kira's Quilts

I really love quilting my friends quilts!  These are Kira's.


This is Kira's fireworks quilt.


She requested swirls with hooks.


It was so much fun to quilt



This backing fabric is to DIE for!


BTW- I bought the RedSnappers for loading my quilts onto the frames.  The system is AWESOME!!


Next up was Kira's Arrow Quilt


Opted for these little Peacock swoopy things ;)




I love how it turned out!

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 :)
