Here's another quilt version using the oh so cute owl fabric! This time, I used an aqua dotted Minky for the backing and quilted all three layers with an allover swirl pattern. This quilt/ blanket turned out great, so soft and cuddly:) Just perfect to wrap up your adorable baby/toddler while the weather is getting colder.

Doing the happy dance, I finally finished this lovely quilt for a sweet customer of mine!! It will go in the mail tomorrow, can't wait until she's going to see it! I used ninety 10" squares which I cut out from my extensive Kumari Garden fabric stash. Quilted with the awesome Glide thread in an allover meander pattern. Turned out so soft and cuddly!!! The batting was from Winline, white and 100% cotton. I truly like this batting a lot, quilting on it is like a dream:)
Hope you'll enjoy the pics:)

Heather Baliley's "Nicey Jane fabric in full display on a twin size quilt. Pieced two pieces of the rose fabric in a way that you can't see where the two fabrics met which was not that easy as it sounds:) It does look like one continuous piece. So happy that this quilt got done before my friend's birthday!

Happy dance, got another customer quilt finished. This one was made with a variety of fabrics that my lovely customer has sent me to include in her quilt. I just love the elephants, they are so adorable. In addition, I've made two matching standard pillow shams that I also quilted on my longarm machine. They turned out great if I have to say so myself:) Everything was shipped off today and I really hope my customer likes her quilt and shams as much as I do:)

Just having fun sewing and quilting a composition book cover. I think the inspiration came when I saw a tutorial on the Riley Blake blog. I just happened to have the same fabric at home that was used in their version. They make great little gifts and they are fun to make:)
Oversized queen Cowgirl/ Cowboy Western quilt. Fabrics featured in this quit consist of chevrons, bandana prints, cowboy boots, and otherwise Western style prints. Quilted with an overall swirl pattern which looks like lassos all over the quilt. Pretty cowboy/cowgirl I'd say:) This was a commissioned quilt for a very special couple's wedding in Oregon:) I also purchased additional fabric in order to make shams and pillow cases to match the quilt which was my little wedding gift for the newly weds:)
I also found a stamp set on ebay that was super perfect for making a quilt label. I'll attach some pics of that as well:) I really like this quilt a lot, so much so, that I'm thinking to buy another set of fabrics to make another one just like it. Hope I can still find these fabrics online since I had such a hard time locating them to begin with. They sold out so quickly in every online store!

Just finished this oh so soft and cuddly flannel rag quilt. I used Riley Blake's Sidewalk flannels, the colors in this line are just beautiful! The front has the exposed raggy edges, the back is completely smooth. I layered 100% cotton batting from Warm & Natural between the two flannel fabrics for more more warmth and softness. For the binding, I used 100% cotton fabric from the same fabric line. This quilt will get softer with each wash. I might have to keep it, can't believe how buttery soft this quilt actually is. Swoon:)
You'll find this lovely quilt in my little etsy shop hopefully soon:)

This quilt was made with a jelly roll consisting of Tina Givens fabrics called "Opal Owl". Backed with a soft minky and quilted with a swirl pattern on my longarm machine. It turned out so pretty and cuddly! I donated this quilt to a very special Montessori school to be auctioned off. I also made a matching pillow:)
