Check out some of the amazing quilts our renters have brought in the shop lately!
I imagine Colleen J. must have quite the reputation among her family and friends. She’s here at least once every month or two, and she’s always working on a quilt for someone else! This baby quilt is for her son-in-law’s brother, who is expecting his first son. I just love the polka dot backing fabric!
Next up, Colleen J. worked on this Valentine’s Day table runner. She said she’s making a whole set of table runners as a bridal shower gift for her nephew and his fiance. The Heart Fancy Paper Pantograph fits the theme perfectly!
Here’s Brenda proudly displaying her first quilt finished on a longarm! She made this adorable puppy themed throw for her own doggy. Brenda is an admitted quilting addict, like so many of us! She inherited her love for quilting from her mother and grandmother, and she can feel their love in every stitch of their quilts long after their passing.
Coleen A. was back in the studio working on this quilt for her daughter’s bedroom. She found the pattern in a fabric ad in Love of Quilting. The fabric wasn’t her daughter’s taste and the pattern was for a much smaller quilt. So she changed the colors and added a few more rows. I’d like to send an extra thank you to Coleen A., she was in a few days after my presentation and trunk show at Quilter’s Day Out in Lexington and she helped make sure quilts I was hanging back up were level. I couldn’t have done it without you!
Finally we have Suzanne and Gary who came in to take their rental certification class together. Over the years, I’ve met plenty of husband and wife teams where the wife does the piecing, and the husband does the quilting. I have a feeling Suzanne and Gary might become one of those teams! Suzanne has been quilting for years now, as a result she has a closet full of tops just waiting to be finished. Suzanne worked on this too cute sock monkey quilt that will be perfect for any toddler. She chose the Turbulance Paper Pantograph because it’s reminiscent of all the motion the little monkeys (or little kiddos 🙂 ) can make. Gary chose the more masculine Square Spiral Paper Pantograph to go with his courthouse steps variation lap quilt. I love all the rich colors in this one!
