Love Strings Quilt Pattern


56" x 72"

I called this pattern Love Strings because of the little blue squares make up the hearts and the green is the connecting strings. I originally designed it in red and black which you can see below which would be perfect for a February quilt. Since it's summer time, I went ahead and make it in turquoise and lime green which is one of my favorite color combos.


 I have been wanting to make a quilt with a checkered background for quite some time. It just took a while to find the right pattern to put it with. Check out the red and black version and the red and teal version.


How about a monochromatic version? This one has beautiful green blue shades.


a three color version


This baby version is oh so soft looking in pinks and grays. 


You can find my new Love Strings pattern in my etsy shop. It comes in 5 sizes from baby to king. Which version do you like the best?

Another Lakeview Terrace Quilt


60 x 70

Finally finished is this Lakeview Terrace Quilt I started several months ago. This is the second quilt I have made in this pattern. You can see the first one here. This one got some bright and happy fabrics! I made it all from scraps. 


For the quilting, I choose a wavy line with alternating loops. It was very easy to quilt. I just put one line per strip. Something different for a change.


I had nothing in my stash big enough for a back so I decided to make one from matching pieces. I wanted to use some of each color and this is what I came up with. I really am trying not to buy backing fabric unless I have to. 


One for picture just because I love it! Those soft colors are so pretty.

Postcard Quilt - throw size


While I was making a postcard quilt for a customer, I found some triangles in some similar colors but not the ones that I like to use. So I thought I would make an extra postcard quilt using those pieces up. You can hardly tell that I did because there are so many different colors in this pattern already. 

I love this gray print from Joann's. The wavy white lines look great with the wavy quilting. It's like they were made for each other!


My favorite shot of the quilt on the couch. Such beautiful colors. I love making this one.

Triple Dot Quilt

This is my new pattern called Triple Dot. It's so fun and modern! It is designed with 3 colors in mind, but you can even use scraps. I chose to use 3 fabrics for each color. The pattern had cutting instructions for 3 fabrics, 9 fabrics, or scraps so you get to choose. 

I finally made a pieced quilt back. I haven't done one like this in a while. All one color just seemed to solid for the light colored front. Plus it looks playful just like the front!

This pattern would be perfect for a summer quilt in red, white, and blue. The printed white background gets shown off in this version. 


Aqua blue is one of my favorite colors, so I set it off with a black background. Very stricking!


But this navy blue version with the greens is probably my favorite. I would have made this one had I designed it before I sewed up the test quilt. I would sew it up with a textured blue background from Moda's Nantucket Summer fabric line. You can find Triple Dot in my Etsy shop.

Scrappy Queen Quilt



100" x 100"

My scraps have been busting at the seams waiting for me to do something with them. I have been using up the bright fabrics this year in several scrappy quilts (one more is almost finished). But I don't tend to use the brown ones and the duller fabrics so I set out to intentionally use those fabrics. I picked this pattern because it used a ton of pieces. I started to make a throw size quilt, but found that I had enough to make a queen so who not make a big one? 


The solid is Kona Windsor. I even found it in a wide back so I wouldn't have to piece it together.  I had thought about using black or gray, but neither one seemed to go with the color in the fabrics. 


The sun doesn't ever seem to hit my house at the right angle to get a nice bright photo indoors, but I tried anyway. I think it would look good with some navy shams and a different headboard. Back to work, got lots to do!
