“Blue” – Best Of Show Winn

I did this quilt for Kathy Lyon in December of 2012.  While it was cold and snowy outside this was a beautiful, tropical quilt to work on in the warmth of my studio.  It was Kathy’s first appliqué and a joy to work on.  The center was all free hand and borders were patterns that were placed using the Statler Stitcher.  Kathy just received the call that the quilt won Best of Show at the Elkhart County Fair.  We are thrilled!

Even More Backing Choices – We Hit 100!!

We’ve been working on expanding our backing selection around here. Today we hit 100 bots of wide backing fabrics! We’re really excited about that cause it is nice for all of us. You have plenty to choose from and neither of us have to piece backings! 🙂

Here are the newest additions, but keep looking for more as we continually expand.

The latest fabric collection by 3 Sisters for Moda has arrived!  Announcing… Wintergreen by 3 Sistesrs!  We love the black that was added to this warm and wintery collection.  It makes for a classy collection that still has the traditional feeling 3 Sisters is known for.  Hope you like it too!

Feathers!

We just love feathers around here and this quilt has them!  The kite shape was somewhat unique, so I designed a custom feather for it…And called it… Feathered Kite.  It fell right into place and complimented Emily’s Feathers Border & Corner  just as I wanted it to.  As another quilter told me once, “Feathers have personality!  They HAVE to match.”  Well said!
