Romantic Raggy Quilt and Matching Pillow

I just love using what I call romantic fabrics. These are so pretty. The dark rose with wild roses is a Moda faric and the cream with vintage letters and envelopes is a Michael Miller and the dark green one is from my stash that I have had a while. I think that they make a really beautiful quilt. This is perfect for a bed throw or a chair throw with the matching pillow. you will find this item for sale in my etsy shop.

New T-shirt Quilt for Elementary School Office Wall

This is such a pretty t-shirt quilt. The picture does not do it justice. Of course this is just the top as I have to quilt it next but couldn't wait to post it. I really had fun making this one. I plan on quilting it in a star pattern. I make quilts to order and you can place an order from my etsy shop.

Kitchen Quilt Ansemble

I just listed a kitchen quilt and matching hot pad holders and tea towel. These are made from some vintage fabric with country blue checks and black and white chickens. I also used a fabric that looks like chicken wire for the odd blocks. This is a really cute ansemble. I place dark country blue prairie points all around the edge. This would be perfect for a country kitchen and is so colorful. Now just guess what new tool that I used to make this darling set?? You guessed it my new Free Accuquilt Go Cutter. Yipee I won it from the Accuquilt company on their Fun Friday Contest!!

When my sisters and I were very young all three of us loved to make things. I think that was the way kids entertained themselves in those days. Our mother sat us down with old clothes and needles and thread and we made our dolls clothes.
My creativity grew from there and I found myself in high school making all of my own clothes. I did get a lot of attention with my matching outfits including hats. Since I was shy maybe that was my way of creating my own world and at the same time getting attention.
I finally did get tired of making clothes and went into quilting. The first year I quilted I made every family member quilts, quilts and more quilts.
You can only make so many quilts and so many bags before you have no space left. What is a very nutty creative person going to do about this?? Well you are going to open an ETSY shop and sell some of this stuff, right?? http://fabricartist21.etsy.com/
My neighbor asked me to make her a T-Shirt Quilt and I have been doing that for over a year now. I take special orders through my Etsy shop. I have become very busy with this business and will continue to create t-shirt quilts as long as their are customers that want them.
