Fall Evenings

The evenings are getting longer and darker, which makes it much easier to spend time inside sewing. Just ocmpleted two quilted, king size, custom pillow shams. They turned out very beautifully. Next, I will turn my attention to another t-shirt quilt for a Senior in high school. That should be a fun quilt to assemble. If you are considering having a quilt or another project completed, contact me for a price and let's get started!

Fireman T-shirt Quilt

The fireman t-shirt quilt is all done and looks fantastic! Save your t-shirts or old clothes to make a keepsake item such as this. This is between a queen and king size, blocks are approx 20"x20" before the strapping and border were added. If you are thinking about having a quilt made, plan ahead as it could take up to 3-4 months from beginning to end to complete the project. I look forward to sewing for you!

Work in Progress

Well they say that good things come in time...that would be true for sewing projects as well. Waiting to finish up a fireman's t-shirt quilt, currently working on another t-shirt quilt (Dave Matthews Band) and getting ready to do a quilt repair. So, keeping a few projects going and hoping to find a few more coming into the fall and winter. It's never to late to start thinking about graduation gifts...dig out all those old, not to be worn again t-shirts and prepare to dazzle your graduate with a keep sake quilt they can take with them when they move out of the house. It does take several months to complete a quilting project, so give me a call if you have something in mind. You could be the next "work in progress".

Cheetah is in the Room

After completing projects for clients I was able to get going on a new bedroom set for my daughter.  With her room recently painted, she selected some browns, tans and a Cheetah print for her new duvet, bed skirt and pillow case.  This is a great new way to freshen up her room and to coordinate all the colors.

Spring has finally sprung

The last couple of months have been very productive and it is nice to finally be in Spring.  The PJ quilt project for a client has just been finished and delivered.  It turned out so nice, better than expected!  It will surely make three little kids happy to see their PJ sewn so nicely into a quilt.

I also had the chance to create a new duvet for my daughter to compliment her new room colors.  The bedskirt will be next along with some pillows and pillow cases to round out the new decorating theme.

And finally, I spent time finishing a custom pillow project for another client to refresh the rooms in her house.  That was a fun project since it incorporated about 6 different types of materials, which were fun to sew.

I'm always looking for new projects and am willng to price them out for you.  Call me directly to discuss your poject details.  612-432-6474

Snowy Days

Wnter is a wonderous time!  It'a a great excuse to begin a new project and spend hours in my sewing room.  Just finished up a pillow project and am now in the process of creating another custom quilt.

If you are thinking of having something warm and cozy made, give me a call or email to get this started for you.

Mother's day, graduation, Father's day are all approaching and great ways to celebrate those special ocassions with a special gift of a personalized quilt.

Looking forward to more snow days!!

Remembrance of a loved one

These memory quilts were recently finished and will be a wonderful way to honor and remember the loved one lost this past year.  They turned out very nice with all quilt squares made out of articles of clothing and tan fabric used as the binding and backing.

To start the new year off, I'm going to be tackling yet again another type of quilt.  It's a keepsake quilt and will hopefully be fun to make and preserve the childhood of a little girl.

Open for more projects in 2013!!  Never too soon to start planning for a graduation quilt.
