A little preview of another "springy" quilt currently on my longarm machine. Yes, I do quilt late at night, that's why the pics are a little on the dark side:) More pics to come once the quilt is finished!

I'm so happy that I finished this hexagon quilt for a lovely customer of mine! I actually finished it back in January but didn't have the time and location picked out in order to take some photos. I'm not really good at taking decent pics so I let my hubby take over that job. I'm too busy sewing and quilting anyway:)
I used the beautiful fabrics from Anna Maria Horner's Innocent Crush line. I love love her fabrics and luckily my customer did as well. As the contrasting fabric I chose Kona cotton in Ash and it really made the colors pop. Also made matching quilted flanged pillow shams to go with this quilt:)
I might have to sew and quilt this one for myself one day! I still do not have my own handmade quilt as of yet, I guess I'm too busy making things for family, friends, charity, and customers of course:) Yep, one day I have my own little quilt!
Btw, this quilt measures a whooping 114" by 114", the biggest quilt I've made so far!

Spring is here, at least in my sewing and quilting room:) Here are some quilts I finished just in time for the warmer season. The first quilt was made with Moda Nature's Chorus fabric line by April Cornell. The colors are just beautiful together; pretty greens, corals, and aqua blues. Love the aqua colored backing:) The quilting on this quilt is totally freehand, no pantograph was used.
For the second quilt I used Heather Bailey's "Nicey Jane" fabric line. I adore the colors and designs, they complement each other so well which truly shows in this quilt. Used an allover baptist fan quilting pattern for this one. Both quilts are currently in my etsy shop:)

Gheez...another month went by without a quilt post! I really need to get better about this:)
In the meantime, I finished a 112" by 112" hexagon king size quilt for a lovely customer of mine! This has been the biggest quilt I've ever made so far:) I promise I'll post pictures soon, I have to find the best photo prop for such a large quilt! It just has to look good, I don't think my cell phone will do for this one.
On another note, here's a cute baby quilt I've created with Les Amis fabrics by Michael Miller. These fabrics are just so adorable, pretty colors and the most whimsical forest creatures are displayed on the front of the quilt. For the backing I chose a matching print with sweet little turtles which makes this quilt totally reversible. This little ditty is currently for sale in my etsy shop:)

We are already 13 days into the new year and I'm still busy quilting and sewing up a storm. Lots of stuff happened since my last blog post, however,
I will forgo the bad news and focus on the positive :)
I am going to be a first time grandma this year!! So stoked and exited, can't wait until this little bundle arrives in very early August!! Such great news! I guess I'll be busy quilting even more than before:)
Here are some pics of quilts that I finished last year that I didn't post as of yet and some I've finished already this year.
This is the finished quilt that I've posted a little teaser awhile back on this blog. I love these colors so much! Aqua and red are my faves:)
This was made for a customer locally. It's a rag quilt made with the cutest little snowmen and snowflakes fabric. It's so soft and oh so cozy, perfect for those cold winter months!
More raggy quilty goodness! Again, red and aqua fabrics are displayed here. Perfect to keep a little baby warm and snuggly:)
Last not least, another Kumari Garden quilt finished. This one went to a very special little family! It's always so much fun to make quilts for the little ones and their parents.
In addition to those quilts above, I made seven jeans quilts for a very sweet family and also quilted two very large quilts for an awesome customer in Las Vegas.
It was a very productive 2014 :)

Wow, another month went by without a blog post! How does time have such a talent by going by so fast:) Well, I've been real busy quilting up a storm as of late. Here are some photos of a queen size cowgirl quilt I've made with four matching quilted pillow shams. This is my second quilt like this and it was so much fun to sew and quilt for a lovely customer in Oregon.
I will post more pics of my other projects either today or tomorrow.
Have a splendid quilty day:)
P.S.: I'm better at quilting and sewing than taken photos. Well, at least you can still see the quilt so it's not too bad:)

After a long pause in quilting and blogging due to an unfortunate eye injury, I am happily sewing and quilting again. Feeling much better now and I can finally see what I'm doing :))
I have so much catching up to do, so here are two quilts that I got done in the past two weeks.
The first one is a baby quilt made with some cool and colorful Riley Blake fabrics. It turned out so cute and the customer is super happy with it. That always makes my day:) I quilted an allover swirl design on it which seems to be a customer favorite.
The second quilt is more of a couch/sofa quilt to cuddle under while watching TV. I've used Joel Dewberry's Deer Valley fabric collection which has been out of print for quite a while. The colors are just so beautiful, very rustic yet modern. I looove the backing fabric, beautiful color and design.
The quilting design looks like tree bark which adds to the "outdoorsy" rustic feel of this quilt. I am currently selling this quilt in my etsy shop:)
I'm attaching some pics:) Enjoy!
'Til next time!!
