Irene's Quilt

This is a quilt that will be hanging on customer Irene's wall.  She has very high ceiling and wanted something for hanging above  her 24" x 64" mirror.  I cannot wait to see it hanging!  This was custom order to a specific size 50" x 64" and the colors needed to be as closely matched to her decor as possible.  Enjoy your wall hanging Irene for many, many years!

Congratulations Anna Sophia on your Confirmation.  Your granddaddy Bill wanted to surprise you with a special gift that would take you through the years.  I was so pleased I was the one that he asked to work on this project. I was told you are a lover of art and literature so I decided to go with the art and create this colorful quilt for you.  I am hoping that you feel the warmth of love that your Granddad Bill has for you. Enjoy and stay warm!

A Quilt for Megan's Wedding Shower ...There is nothing more rewarding than creating that something special for your daughter.  This quilt pattern by Jane Miller was one of my most challenging projects.  This quilt was made for my daughter Megan's Bridal Shower. Having a Fall wedding I was looking for colors that were reflective of the season. Congratulations Megan & Todd!

Pat's Kitchen Quilt

Quilting for customers can be a wonderful challenge.  Finding just the right design to add to the beauty of their creation can be such fun.  In this beautiful quilt Pat was replicating a work that was done so very long ago.  I chose to quilt with a leaves and apples. ( A Patricia Ritter Design Panto)   After the quilting was complete, I returned it to Pat and with red thread she hand sewed in cherries and apples into the white squares.  Wow such a wonderful touch.  Great job Pat!  .

What do I do with free time?  Well, I don't have much extra time but when I do I find a project that has simplicity and color.  This is a fun fat quarter pattern that went together with little effort and has a dramatic effect as a whole quilt.  I will keep this one just for me!

Fundraiser for Maria

 This quilt was made as a fundraiser for a young woman in need of a double lung transplant.  Pieced by friend Marianne, it was then given to me which I quilted on Valentine's Day.  I could not think of a better way to share the gift of love with someone so in need.  This was quilted with Ribbons of Love and with the hope that Maria gets that transplant and finds a total recovery.  Please keep Maria Lippre in your prayers and if you would like to contribute to the cause please visit the website at:
