Renter Round-Up: See 3 Inspiring Quilted Creations From Our Talented Customers

Renter Round-Up

If you’re a quilter, then you know that there’s nothing quite like seeing a beautifully crafted quilt up close. As someone who rents out machines to quilters, I am fortunate enough to see countless stunning quilts daily, and I have to say our renters have truly outdone themselves! In fact, I’m so excited about some of the quilts that have recently come through our studio, that I just had to share a few of my favorites with you. Take a look!

Kristen's quilt with a unique backing

We absolutely love the beautiful colors and perfect symmetry in Kristen’s quilt. She created it as a gift for her father and his wife, who picked out all the colors themselves.

what I really like about this quilt is the pieced back. Kristen tackled the challenge of a pieced backing fabric using a clever design approach. She created a single row of blocks between larger solid strips of fabric, which extended off the quilt on either side. This not only prevented any tucks or puckers but also made it simpler to ensure that the quilt was straight on the stripe.

The quilting pattern she chose, called Fern, is a beautiful, leafy design with lovely symmetry. The flowing design really complements her quilt flawlessly. It’s clear that Kristen’s beautiful quilt will be cherished by her family for many years to come!

Stacee's Heartwarming Scrap Quilt

Next up, we have a quilt from Stacee that’s just bursting with color and charm! She created this beauty for her niece using a pattern called A Scrappy Kind of Love by J. Michelle Watts, which is perfect for using up scraps and jellyrolls.

Stacee did not hold back on the scraps! She incorporated leftover fabrics from many different quilts, as well as a jellyroll, to create a fun and eclectic look.

Stacee used a pantograph called Cadence for the quilting. This fleur de lys pantograph is the perfect match for our city of Louisville, and it also adds an extra touch of elegance to this already stunning quilt. It’s clear that Stacee put so much love and care into this gift, and her niece is one lucky gal to receive such a delightful treasure!

Carol's Yellow Rose of Texas Quilt

Carol’s gorgeous quilt is truly unique. While the block design is simple and classic, what makes this quilt one-of-a-kind is the fact that every block features a beautiful yellow rose designed by Carol herself!

Inspired by her granddaughter’s birthplace in Texas and her love for the song “The Yellow Rose of Texas,” which she often sung to her, Carol set out to create a very special quilt for her granddaughter. However, after struggling to find the perfect yellow rose fabric, Carol, a talented art teacher, decided to paint her own watercolor design. She then uploaded it to Spoonflower.com, where they printed it on fabric for her to create a perfectly unique Yellow Rose of Texas quilt.

The result is an awe-inspiring heirloom quilt that showcases the endless possibilities that come with a little creativity and ingenuity. Hats off to you, Carol!
