Magical Victorian Garden blooms on my frame ❤️ 🥀 This quilt talked to me in so many ways! It wanted all at once: classic crosshatching, modern lines, vines and frames, fillers and complex backgrounds. I looked at it and doubted, came back and looked again. It has been challenging me for a few weeks. Then it sat on a frame, and I struggled. There were days I felt I caught the idea by the tail, but it slithered away again. I decided to go with this or that and then changed my mind. Finally, I felt that this quilt was all about them, the treasures of this gorgeous Victorian Garden - the flowers, and quilting should enhance their beauty without stealing it or taking advantage with complex structures and distracting shapes. This Garden is getting new shadowed heroes: herbs, flowers and leaves, veins, berries and ferns. And no frames at all. No straight lines, no fence, no limits. Just more botanical shapes and amazing texture that pops under your fingers. This is love. @eobquiltdesigns, thank you for this miracle 🥀 #quilt#quilting#freemotionquilting#juliaquiltoff#garden#applique#appliquequilt#reverseapplique#roses#quiltsofinstagram#quilted#quiltersofinstagram

Good morning and happy Monday friends!!!! . . This beauty showed up in my memories over the weekend, so I thought it would be fun to share the story behind this quilt. This is my first.... several firsts actually. This is the quilt that introduced me to pattern designing and writing. My quilting bestie @porchswingquilts was watching me make some Christmas tree blocks from a pattern, and she got inspired! She pulled out her trusty laptop and launched EQ7 (only because EQ8 wasn't available yet😉).... That is when I saw the magic of quilting from inspiration to idea to brainstorming to math to fabric selection to finished quilt top. We were very happy that @beelori1 had already designed the perfect house block. All we had to do was create the perfect red truck for the pattern. That took a few days, only because she kept changing her mind😉🤣. Anyway, this was the finished product! Its big and super easy to make. Its jelly roll friendly and you can find the pattern, without the house, in her shop. I think she has published the truck pattern separately🤔🤔🤔🤔 . . What's the first quilt that made your want to step up your skills and step out of your comfort zone? Post pictures and share your story! #ldsintrovert#christmasquilts#doyoueq#eq7#loriholtbeeinmybonnet#porchswingquilts#patterndesign#quilts#quiltersofinstagram#quiltsofinstagram#showmethemoda#thenerdyquilter#thenerdyquiltersshop
How many of you are fans of glue basting? Jayne used that technique on this circle quilt, and wow—the end result really sings! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Curated Quilts is a modern quilt publication featuring our readers. Click the link in our profile to learn more. #curatedquilts . #repost from @twiggyandopal . I love curves, love circles and love these colors! I machine quilted 1” vertical straight lines using @aurifilthread 50wt Yellow Orange thread (2145). It was the perfect color for all the colors in the quilt. Four circles received special treatment, which was as much as I could handle! Another fun fact: I glue basted the half circles together ensuring perfectly matched seams! Oh...I love glue too! #twiggyandopal#makersgonnamake#makemodern#circlequilt#quiltersofinstagram#modernquilting#modernquilt#showusyourmqg#graphicquilt @aurifilthread #aurifilthread

This was my first time using a minky backing. It has since proven to be one my favorite backing choices. It is so warm and soft and there are far more choices than I had thought. The quilt pattern is #northstarquilt by @emily_dennis_ and the quilting is by @knotandthread . This is my favorite slow time of year. We have been doing lots of reading aloud together, baking Christmas cookies, and watching Christmas movies. We have been making our way through our beautiful Advent devotions like our Jesse Tree and Pennance Service. The kids have been rehearsing for the children's choir for Christmas Eve Mass and we are readying the house for all the family coming in for a few weeks during Christmas and New Year's. Tomorrow we are hosting a Gingerbread House decorating party and the kids can't wait! Yes, this is definitely my favorite time of the year.
Before I came away on holiday I gave a donation of handmade items to lovely Sheena @auburnstitches new #quiltsmakehomes appeal. I wanted to highlight this wonderful venture here (you can read abut it below and on Sheena’s feed - maybe you can also help?!) but also to share the quilt I donated as it was actually made by a Bee I was part of on Flickr many years ago and it occurred to me that some of the participants who contributed to this quilt might like to know where their work is finally heading! I think @jenniferjohnston80 was in the group? And I know that @sewingunderrainbow made a beautiful house block for it. Perhaps somebody else out there remembers making blocks? For a long time it hung in the studio and I am very happy to send it on to someone who I am sure will appreciate it. #repost @auburnstitches with @get_repost ・・・ The latest donation to the #quiltsmakehomes appeal from the lovely Jo Avery of @mybearpaw along with lots of other minis and cushions. . How pretty is this. . Some girl is going to love this! . #quiltersarelovely . #quiltsmakehomes#linklivingscotland#modernquilts#quilts#quilting#fmq#patchwork#quiltmaker#quilterofawesome#quiltersofinstagram
On these dark winter days, I’m so thankful for the abundance of white in our home. As a photographer, white walls make my heart go pitter patter. They reflect light perfectly throughout your home and help with correct skin tones and white balance. They may get dirty, but all walls do (except you might not being seeing your dirt which could be good or bad 🙃🙃🙃). Also, sadly, this quilt is sold. #stitchedandfound#stitchedandfoundquilt#shoplocal#buylocal#handmade#quilter#sew#propvendor#propstore#propshop#quiltersofinstagram#quiltylove#quiltforsale#vintagequilt#quilt#antiquequilt#decorating#photographerprop#photographyprop#prop#newbornprop#familyphotographer#weddingphotographer#newbornphotographer#newbornphotography#familyphotography#weddingphotography#nashvilletn#quiltprop#photoprop
I still love my #candylanequilt pattern (link in bio) and I have to say, it fits my 3yr old well. This quilt will forever remind me of my recent forray into pattern writing and how excited he was upon receiving a quilt I designed, pieced and quilted. He watched and followed my process the whole way through. It once again showed how much I love Quilting for my 4 children. It never gets old.
