June 5, 2020 – Sailing/Nautical
This quilt was pieced by a customer who is looking forward to spending a lot of time sailing around the Florida Keys and east coast. She wanted a quilt for the boat while on their trips. She requested a wavy design to give the quilt movement. It was stitched with navy colored thread using the Curly Weave design by Karen Thompson (Intelligent Quilting) in the body; a stitch-in-the ditch for the inner border; and the Going Sailing design by Dave Hudson (Urban Elementz) in the outer border.
May 29, 2020 – American Flannel
This warm and cozy table topper was pieced with Americana flannel. The quilt top has large blocks and the backing was actually pre-printed smaller squares of similar fabric. It was stitched with silver gray thread using a meander/stippling design.
May 8, 2020 – Red, White & Pink Hearts
This beautiful lap size quilt called for more than an all over design. It was custom stitched using peachy pink thread. Feathered hearts were custom designed for each heart and some smaller plain pink triangles. A scrolling heart design was used in the red border, and a heart design was used in each of the hexagons. Empty spaces were filled with stripes or stippling with hearts. The customer also added a flange border between the main body and the red border, which adds to the quilt’s beauty.
April 30, 2020 – Foxes Abound with Forest Friends
So many cute nursery prints to pick from these days, but these prints with foxes and forest animals captured the eye of this customer. These cute foxes were stitched with a pale green thread using the Popcorn design by Jodi Beamish, Willow Leaf Studios, giving the quilt a feel of clouds.
April 29, 2020 – Flowers for Mom
This beautiful flower-in-a-jar quilt has a special story. This quilt was pieced by a beginner quilter. During the down time of COVID-19, this male teacher spent his time learning a new skill. He learned to quilt. He made this quilt for his mother and gave it to her for Mother’s Day. Kudos to the customer for an excellent job of piecing and matching all of those points! The quilt was stitched with snow/white colored thread using the Leaves design by Wasatch Quilting.
