I am also having a class on one weekend in Sept. – same time and same location, (Caldwell United Methodist Church Main Street fellowship hall) in case you need to switch – just let me know asap. Feel free to contact me if you or if you have a group that would like to take this class on a different date.  I will try to accommodate your schedule

Quilt Circles Abstract Art Black White Wall Hanging

This is one of the latest modern abstract quilted wall hangings that I made recently.  It measures 38″ x 48″; circles are machined appliqued with a blanket stitch in black thread. Quilted in an overall circular pattern with black thread to create a wonderful textured appearance. Bound with black fabric; backing is a black and silver gray print. Comes with a hanging sleeve on the back for easy display.

T-Shirt Quilts Make Nice Gifts!

Just a few weeks ago, a customer called us and asked us if we could make a special T-Shirt Quilt for her as a gift for her loved one before Christmas. Although I was pretty well booked, my husband John said he would have time to help me complete the quilt, and have it done before Christmas. T-Shirt quilts make wonderful gifts, as was this one, now completed. Much like a memory quilt (with pictures on the quilt top) T-shirt quilts bring back those warm memories of that loved one and times spent together, while adding warmth while the the quilt is in use. This is just one of many possible quilt top patterns, and in this case, just what our customer wanted. John and I both enjoy sharing the joys of Christmas with our very special customers!

Merry Christmas!

John and I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Although life is full of challenges of all sorts, it brings peace to our hearts to know that we have Jesus Christ in our home and in our lives. We pray that this Christmas season will bring you closer to our savior, that you may know Him better and better.

May God bless you and keep you safe.

Custom Quilt & Throw Pillows & Bed Skirt

Recently I completed a custom quilted bedroom package including a custom quilt, throw pillows, and bed skirt that you see in my customer’s picture here. The package also included custom pillow shams not shown in this picture. If you have interest in a bedroom custom made quilting package, I also piece and custom quilt curtains or drapes to match your interior design. In this package, I pieced all the various options mentioned and custom quilted them, including all finish edge binding, complete and ready to use. I have also discussed a custom wall hanging to match this bedroom set or for decoration in another room with my customer Judy. A special thanks to Judy for supplying this photograph of her completed quilt set!

Please feel free to contact my about your custom quilting interests.
