Twist & Shout

My first attempt at a braid quilt top was a success! I really like how this one turned out and best of all it used up all my scraps of Ginger Blossom.  It turned out to be 39.5 x 47 inches - which I think will make a great play quilt size!  As soon as it's quilted and back, I'll be listing it in the shop!

COMPLETE - Matisse

The Matisse is COMPLETELY FINISHED! It came back from the quilters and I think the gals at Melears did a great job as usual! I still can't believe I hand-pieced all of those 64 blocks! I think all the work was worth it - it looks awesome and I think the new owners will be very pleased with their new bedroom quilt (and matching shams!)

Twist & Shout

I'm learning a new skill of making a braid quilt with my newest project that I'm calling Twist & Shout! I'm using scrap pieces that were left over of the Ginger Blossom line (Michael Miller Fabrics) that I used in some other quilts and extra white cornerstone pieces to make this fun little pattern. I can't wait to see how this turns out!

Just a few blocks of a commissioned wall hanging using French General's lovely new fabric - Maison de Garance.  I love the rich browns, reds, and creams! I'm using the same random patterning as my Tango quilt for this one.  I really like the new twist on this using the dark fabric as the background. 

Matisse Updates

The Matisse quilt top is completed and at the quilters!  I can't wait to get it back to see how it looks all finished!

Here are the matching King shams I made with the Coral Dove Matisse fabric.
