*The following is the story of a quilt that has taken me FOREVER to complete. Sorry it's a little long, but the quilt took me a lot of time to make, and I wanted to document it for posterity's sake :) *
I am happy to finally report that this MASSIVE quilt project is finally completed. Yes, it took me over a year (just barely) to finish it, but it was a lot of work and I am really, really pleased with the end result.

This sweet little flannel and minkee baby quilt is a sample for Gracie Lou's, the local quilt shop (LQS).
I have a client who rescues a lot of quilt tops and blocks and pieces of quilts. She is amazing. She bought these cute little Sunbonnet Sue blocks at a yard sale, then sashed and bordered them into a quilt top.
This next quilt of hers is one that her daughter rescued for her. She found it in the remaining trash and garbage at a swap meet in another state. I think it is the cutest thing ever! She kept the edge trim of the blanket on and sewed it to some fabric she picked as a border.
I cross-hatched across the rescued blanket, using Permacore Dyed Natural thread.

I just realized that I am still posting pictures from April. Yes, that's right. April.
So, rather than getting further and further behind in my posting, we'll just pretend like the last 5 months didn't exist and I'm going to just pick up from where I am now. It's a little overwhelming looking at all of the pictures that I have to upload, and uploading is really slow right now with my internet connection that I have at home.
BUT! I promise to keep up with posting better the rest of the year :)
Please stay tuned for special promotions/discounts. Also, I'm on Facebook!! Follow us on Facebook for special Facebook-only promotions (coming soon!). :)

I have been receiving a lot of spamming comments. This is not cool. I even have word verification on, which I know that regular people hate, to help reduce it. It's not helping. I will be turning on comment verification to reduce the spam that we all have to read. Nothing sucks worse than reading a post that has a bazillion spam comments beneath it. Sorry, to all of you normal, non-spammers. Please don't hate me, hate the spammers. It's all their fault. :(

I quilted a feathered wreath in the outer border.
In the background triangles I quilted feathers.
I quilted a flower in the center square with feathers in the background around the square. In the rest of the pieced block I quilted a wavy cross hatch design. I used So Fine! Snow thread.
This fun strippy quilt features a monogram and a floral applique.
I quilted an all-over loop and clover design in a green colored thread.
This fun, navy-themed strippy quilt was so fun. I quilted 2 of them for my client. Don't you just love the Navy print?
I quilted stars, loops, waves, swirls, spirals, etc. in each of the strips. One strip had the recipient's name quilted across it.
This client quilt was made for a wedding back in May, and was one of my favorite quilts to quilt.
My husband's cousins made this for their sister (his other cousin). Isn't it so cute?!
