Sewing Non-Stop

In my last post I mentioned how I am planning for a super awesome show here in Indianapolis in June called the Indieana Handicraft Exchange. On top of that, I am planning on having a table at First Friday coming up in just a few days! I have been frantically trying to get as much finished as possible including getting my finished quilts photographed outside since the weather has been so great. Some I already had listed in my shop, but others are new. I’ll share everything I get wrapped up over the next week if I have enough time to sit down and write about it.

Here are the older quilts that I just rephotographed.

Check in tomorrow for all the new ones!

Purple and Orange

While at my local fabric store, I spotted this fabric. One of Erin McMorris’s fabrics from the Park Slope line. This one started it all.

I got an orange fabric from the same line and took them home to see what I could work with out of my stash.

After some mixing and matching, here is what I came up with. I was a little short on one of the fabrics, but luckily I knew my fabric shop had it.

And here is the finished quilt top.

Finished! And for sale.

This quilt was my first attempt at free motion quilting. I used orange thread. On the brown and orange fabrics, I used a decorative scallop stitch. On the pink and purple fabrics I did free motion quilting following the pattern of the fabric. It’s easier to see from the back.

I am so thrilled with this quilt! I love the quilting. After washing it, it was perfectly crinkly. I love it for a girl because it isn’t overly girly as well as bright and happy.

Bowtie Quilt

I adore this quilt.

It was made with the same pieces as these quilts.

I love that you can make so many different styles from basically the same pieces.

This was the first quilt I made my own binding for. It’s a light blue polka dot. It makes me so happy! I even made some tags for my quilts. This one is available in my shop too.
