Deep Freeze has thawed…

Wow its been a long time since I have posted to my blog!  When I looked back, I was amazed….Blogs are all about communicating and I’ve done a terrible job of it!

Sorry its taken me so long but this year has flown by, birthdays, quilts shows, weddings, family visits – I know you are as crazy busy has I am….

Well I’m here now and Ive got a few quilts to show you (thats my excuse – I’ve been making quilts).  I was working on 4-6 quilts simultaneously and it has been fun….now they are all ready for borders then quilting.  Patterns ready by next week, so please keep checking.

First up is a really fun quilt called “Summer Rain”  (it started out as April Showers, but took too long).  This quilt also started out as a large lap quilt and as I laid it out I got another idea and decided to make two quilts instead of one – have you ever done that?

Summer Rain is made with these fun pieced blocks, lots of color and a simple applique in the center (of course, optional for my non-applique friends).

The second quilt is half the size and too has a little applique in the center.

The next quilt is more of a mini quilt – it only measures 31″ square, but it was sure fun to make.  I used one charm pack filled with lots of color and made these little stars with a colorful sashing between the blocks.  It is called “Random Little Stars”

When I got to the border, I decided I need more color, so there you go….

I also managed to dive into the latest Fig Tree fabric – so soft, so pretty!  This quilt is called “Butter churn”  it is just the dreamiest colors (you may have noticed these are the colors for my website, blog, etc I just love them – warm, soft and pretty)  I used a jelly roll, background and extra fabric for the borders, pretty inexpensive project.

Next is a really charming quilt called “Modern Candy”  Totally ready for the borders (2) and just gorgeous shades of purple grey, teal and magenta – love it!

Thanks for indulging my ‘need to share’ I’ll try not to take so long next time!

I hope you are all well and ready for summer – I will be running a promotion in a week or so when these patterns are ready to go, please send me a note or add a comment if you want to be notified as soon as they are ready.  Blessings, Bev

A day in the life of a weekend quilt show…

On Friday, with buckets of rain pouring on us, my friend Darly and I started unloading for my first vendor booth at a quilt show.   It was raining so hard, the rain drops were so big and my umbrella was too small.  Yes, I was trying to unload my stuff  and hold an umbrella […]
