Vintage Carolina Lily Quilt

This vintage Carolina Lily quilt was fun to quilt! The outside edges are difficult to see in this picture but the cone shaped border will be finished with scalloped edges. I’m hoping for a finished picture after Nancy attaches the binding. If it was me, I would cut that straight! And that’s why she is finishing it and not me!!

The large on point setting blocks were perfect for some feathered wreaths!

Before quilting

Sometimes vintage quilts are not perfectly flat or have some fullness issues. Every time I started a block, I was nervous it would not “quilt out”!

After quilting

I’m happy to say every block turned out great!

Just for fun, here’s a modern Carolina Lily quilt.

Thanks for looking! All the quilting is freehand with an 2017 APQS Freddie, affectionately known as Winifred. I love to hear from you, please comment on my Facebook page or follow me on Instagram.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Linda

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Happy 2019!

Here’s my 2018 by the numbers! I ended the year with a career grand total of 998 quilts! I keep a diary of every quilt that was loaded on my longarm since starting my business and soon I’ll hit that 1000 mark! Last year I quilted 44 customer quilts, 9 charity quilt and 6 personal quilts. Here’s a sampling of 2018 customer quilts. Click any picture for a larger view.

As usual, I made wedding and baby quilts. Here’s a sampling of those!

I should keep diary of crafty sewing projects. I have no idea how many of these I’ve made.

Everyone’s favorite phone or tablet holder.

My sisters and I have had a few sewing weekends, too! We completed 15 Hot Pad Table Runners and have several more ready to finish! Click the hyper-link to purchase your own copy of the pattern.

Here’s a few of the Hot Pad Table Runners, finished and ready to finish. A great way to use up those random fat quarters!

Grocery bag holders, yoga mat straps, eye glass case, tablet case, dolly diapers, child tea towel aprons, dolly aprons, dolly quilts! And the list goes on to whatever idea we can come up with!

Last year was a year of travel and quilt shows and so far, 2019 looks like it will be too! I can’t really say how much blogging will be going on, many “famous” bloggers have called it quits recently. I plan to keep posting on Instagram and Facebook occasionally, feel free to comment or contact me there.

Have a happy and safe 2019!

Janann's Glacier StarJanann’s Glacier Star palette is totally different from Mary’s and I love the desert look.The batting is a layer of Quilters Dream Blend and Dream Poly, which fills out the quilting designs nicely.

Now that I’ve figured out how to post from my phone,  yay!, expect more mini posts from me! 

Thanks!  Linda
