Wild Waves New Version

I saw the border print at the quilt shop, and decided I needed to make another Wild Waves quilt with a black background and bold stripes. I've added another fabric (green) to make the points stand out and changed the inner border from black to red, so that it didn't dissapear. The quilt was almost finished, but due to technical difficulties that I did my best to work around, I finally had to decide to start over and am in progress of cutting another one out. Hopefully, it won't take long - it's foundation pieced, so that helps!

Harvest Gathering - batik version

I realized that I had never posted a picture of the batik version of this quilt, even though it really was the first one I finished.

Heavenly Hearts IV - in pink!

This pink version was started during a demo that I did at Gathering Fabric earlier this month. Now it is finished, and I'm having a difficult time deciding whether I like the pink or purple best. What do you think?

Enjoy browsing my blog,

Heavenly Hearts - in purple!

My original Heavenly Hearts quilt was made mostly from a variety of pastel pink batiks, so when I decided to make a purple version, I first thought it would be more of a lavender color. However, once I started combing through my batik stash the deeper purples called to me. It isn't calm and quiet like the pink version, it is definitely more vibrant!

Beading Kits Available

Some of the shops that carry my patterns also have my bead fringe kits that I developed to go with the Awesome Amulets pattern. They have beads for the main fringe, and larger, or drop beads for the ends of the strands, as well as beading thread and a needle.
