I completed this quilt right before my accident and our friend, Andrea, did the binding on it. Actually she did all our bindings. A huge help!

I used the Heirloom line for this quilt. The “grout” lines are Art Gallery’s Oval Elements in Eggplant. The pattern comes from Heather Peterson’s book Living Large 2. I’m not going to say this was the easiest quilt. Those grout lines took some time and I have a couple of mistakes but I gotta say it’s striking and I love looking at it. Even with my mistakes:)

Next is Swoon.

We didn’t want to make the entire quilt just yet, so Paige took one of the blocks and made up a sample. She used Anthology’s Bonjour line.

These are the other Bonjour fat quarters to complete the quilt… greens and purples. It’s gonna look awesome!

It would also look good and so modern in Kaffe fat quarters too. Two totally different looks.

It’s official. Her name is Rose, and she’s all dressed up because I just had to see what my new clutch looks like with some fancy clothes.

Paige and I worked on this pattern by Heather Bailey.

With this fabric combo

Added a  finishing touch, a jeweled pin instead of a flower and now I have, or should I say, Rose has, a perfect clutch for her outfit!

The month of June in the Flickr Tea Buddies group was a butterfly theme. So I searched Google for some inspiration and found this cute pattern by Black Mountain Quilts called Fluttering Butterflies.

Paige thought that the Anthology Fat Quarter set, Folk Life would be pretty made into this. The line has a French, scrappy, flower garden feel to it, so we’re calling our version, French Flea Market.

With the advice from our talented SewMod group, we added a navy flange around the center square to separate the border.  That was a great addition to the quilt. That’s what is so awesome about meeting with quilty friends.  Everyone has something to share and learn.

We also made a scrappy border from the leftover pieces of the FQ set and I hand embroidered the butterfly antenna instead of machine stitching it. If you haven’t figured it out yet, Paige and I have a hard time leaving well enough alone when it come to quilting, me with the visual and her with the designing. But I’ve always been like that. It’s part of the process of making something your own work of art.

We then pieced all of the remaining scraps and added them to the backing. We used every bit! This quilt was quick and easy just like the pattern says and pretty cost efficient when you think that the majority of it was put together with 12 fat quarters…I love that!

Thank you Gail & Kate for hosting the month of June. July’s theme is the beach. I hope to not be late with this months project:) Wish me luck. I may need it.

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend. I was finishing up the studio. I gotta tell ya…I love it! Just a few  more things before I show you the pics though.

We have lots more exciting things coming to the Etsy store and we want to share them with you! So today we’re giving away one of the delicious fat quarter sets from Anthology.

Mine is  Good & Plenty:)

The giveaway runs from Wednesday, June 1st – Wednesday June 8th and is open to everyone, including our international friends. I’ll post the winner June 9th.

I’m struggling with the set up of my new sewing space and running out of room to store the bolts of fabric and supplies that are coming in. We’re been working on storage solutions. Next week neighbor Nick will be back in to do some painting and rearranging. It’s very frustrating for me when I’m not organized so I’m behind on my Birdie BOM for May and I won’t even bore you with projects I’m working on that you’ve already seen, so I thought I’d share some of the Anthology goodness we added to the shop recently.

These fat quarter sets are so yummy I just wanna eat ’em up!

High Society

Sweet Tooth

and Mod Charm

Batiks in 2-1/2″ strip collections

Bali Berries

Tropical Fruits

Hopefully by the end of this week Birdie will be done. I’m using my new Cosmo variegated for the flowers…sooo cute! And Paige is working on a custom batik quilt that maybe we will get a sneak peak of also.

Have a great day everyone!

With Quilt In Joy having the biggest selection of Batiks in the area, I’m sure at some point someone will want me to help with their fabric selection for a quilt. I’m totally unfamiliar with these fabrics and only until a few weeks ago I had never even owned one of these fabrics.

Remember I’ve been on a turquoise kick lately, so I couldn’t resist these prints.

I’m finding that the only Batiks I seem to be attracted to are the ones that read a certain design. Like the daises above or the one’s that arrived at the store recently.  These are from Anthology and Kaufman.

And look at how this one reads flowers. I was immediately drawn to these dark prints.

These caught my interest because they look like cute polka dots. These are the Emma and Essentials line.

And just look at this awesome woven basket made out of Batiks that the store is giving a class in. It’s called Knotty Baskets.

And since I’m Batik challenged, Paige let me borrow several of her books. I’m going to be picking a quilt design and trying to put together an entire Batik quilt. Wish me luck!
