Hugs and Kisses

Posted on March 28, 2013 by Jenn Thurston | 0 comments

A couple weeks ago we had a customer come in searching for blue, orange and green fabrics.  She was going to make a quilt for a wedding gift.  We were so pleased when she brought in the finished quilt top for us to quilt!  I love seeing final projects our customers have made.


The pattern is called Hugs and Kisses by Jay Bird Quilts.  It uses my favorite ruler ever, The Lazy Angle Ruler.  Easy to use, quick projects, endless deigns.  If you haven't heard of it before, look it up, you won't be disappointed!  You may remember this Summersville Spring quilt I made with it.

We went with an abstract vine quilting design. One of our favorites, not too stitch intensive to take away from the design of the quilt.

I love all how all the blues, greens and oranges she selected play so nice together!  It's amazing to me how almost none of these fabrics are from the same line, but sticking to three colors gives it such a nice cohesiveness.

Summersville Spring

Posted on March 02, 2013 by Jenn Thurston | 0 comments

Have you seen the new line out by Lucie Summers called Summersville Spring?   It looks exactly how it sounds; warm spring days, birds chirping, butterflies fluttering by... it's the perfect fabric for the last gloomy days of winter.  In fact, the rare occurrence of when we got snow I decided to sew this bright, cheery quilt while it was blowing flakes like crazy outside.

I have to admit, I really did enjoy the beautiful evening of snow we had.  So pretty, and it was the perfect snow for snow balls!  I also have to admit I was happy to see it leave the next day.

This quilt was so easy to put together!  It just takes 2.5" strips so it's prefect to use that jelly roll that you've had your eye on!  Best part is, a small size like this one only takes half a jelly roll... soooo, you could make a large one or two small ones!

The pattern is called Unwind, it uses that fantastic Lazy Angle ruler that I'm in love with!  In fact, this is my third pattern using the Lazy Angle ruler.  I suggest you check it out, you won't regret it! 

I used a quilting pattern called meandering feathers.  It's fantastic, just the right amount of space left between the feathers.  This won't be the last time you see me use it!

I had so much fun making this! I will be keeping this pattern in mind for my next baby quilt I need to make.
