Put the Kettle On


This bold an beautiful quilt belongs to Reneta who loves yellow. Reneta received the blocks as part of a Queen Bee block swap that we both participated in last year. 

Reneta selected the free "Put the Kettle On" block from the Snapshot quilt a long that the Fat Quarter Shop hosted.  She sent each of the participants a piece of bold yellow Ruby Star spark fabric and in return everyone made her two blocks.

It was really fun to see all the different fabrics that everyone chose to make all the unique teapots.

Reneta selected the London Fog pantograph which is just so fitting!

Megan made this great quilt as a store sample for Keystone Modern Creative.  The pattern is called Gummies and is from Villa Rosa Designs.

Megan chose the new Tim Holtz -Abandoned 2 farbic line and a lovely neutral tan Fireside backing fabric.  The Cool Beans pantograph complemented the modern graphic feel perfectly.

Leslie made this beautiful blue batik quilt as sample for her store - Keystone Modern Creative. The pattern is one of the 3 yard quilt patterns from the Fabric Cafe and it is called Illusions.

We used the Oasis pantograph which shows up so well on the navy Fireside backing that Leslie provided.

Blue and Yellow Stars

Karen made this sweet quilt, as a donation to a new Ukrainian family that is expecting a new baby in the near future.  The pattern is a free download from Pat Sloan's blog called "Quilters Stand for Ukraine."

Karen's fabric choices for the front and the cozy minkee backing are just lovely.  I added the plush pantograph for a light finish to keep it nice and cuddly.

2 For Madeline

Madeline sent two lovely baby quilts for some longarm quilting.  First up is the Ebb and Flow quilt pattern by Penelope Handmade.

Madeline chose the Cool Beans pantograph for a nice modern vibe and used one of the wide backs that I keep in stock.


The second quilt is this super sweet Love Letters quilt.  The pattern is from Bre T quilt designs.

The backing fabric is just perfect with the tiny pink hearts. Hearts on hearts was the order of the day as Madeline selected the Pieces of My Heart pantograph.

Karen's String Quilt

Karen was busy working through her scraps and made this wonderful string quilt.

Not only did Karen add a lovely pieced border, but she also added some piecing to her backing for some added interest.

Karen selected the Clam Flower pantograph which I don't get to use very often.  We used green/oatmeal/gold thread color both top and bottom which added a little something extra to the back.

Puffin Star


This darling quilt was made by pattern tester Reneta. The Puffin Star quilt is part of the new spring release patterns from Art East Quilting Company.

The Bora Bora pantograph seemed like the perfect fit for some puffins on the windy shore.
