Cut from an old quilt that had made its way to the flea has been revived in a beautiful and luxurious way. The beautiful Window Pane Quilt is stunning in this 12 x 24 pillow. Backed with Ticking this 50 year old quilt handmade by some wonderful person has a new legacy as comfort pillows. They are perfect for the Holidays and beyond. We are so happy with the results. We hope you love them $85.00 each!! All different.
They will also be available at the show!!!!
Would love to hear what you think of Dandelion and Boo’s collaboration with Daisy and Poppy and Roses of Blue. We have joined together to raise money for Clown Doctors who bring some humour and smiles to children in hospital. I love the idea of of collaborating for a cause. Making children laugh who are experiencing difficulty is probably the best cause there is. Thank you for allowing us a glimpse of your happy moments in helping the cause. Best, Jennifer
Melissa P. is under the weather and never made it to quilt market but she sent these lovelies ahead to represent Lucky Girl and boy is she amazing with color. Melissa P. of 100 Billion Stars has 100 billion ideas and they are all amazing. Melissa, Utilizing 2 patterns from K Whitt’s book ‘Sew Serendipity Bags’ she came up with these amazing looks!! These bags are sooo good looking. So be sure and read Melissa’s blog for more info and the next fabric giveaway we do will include a free pattern for the gorgeous pillow!!! Melissa, thank you so very much. Nice work!! I swear as a bad sewist I appreciate anyone who sews with such conviction. I love her free motion quilting.!!
The bus went by today and it’s always a trigger for longing..It went by so fast and yet I am so grateful to be present for all of it. There is so much that can take us out of the day to day , we see it all the time. I ‘m just so glad to have felt all the good the bad and the ugly. There is something so precious about being present and available to our kids. I love mine to bits and I do miss the wonder that they experience in front of you every day..It’s exquisite. So when I saw this beautiful quilt on the beach that Jane from Maiden Jane made it made me miss their youth even more. She created something so beautiful that will be packed with memories over the years! Have you met Jane be sure to follow her she is delightful. Crazy Love is no longer being produced but lots of places carry them. Here’s one place I found. Quilt Home has a ton!!
