Paul and I went on a day trip to Sandy Creek Covered Bridge just south of St. Louis. I took a few of my quilts to get some pictures near the bridge. We both took pictures, but I like his better. 😀 So, thank you, babe! It was a very pretty October day, sunshine and cool breezes. The trees really weren’t showing their color much, but it was still a pretty day to go. You can find all of these quilts in my Etsy shop. Click on the links to see more about them.

Well, it’s been a busy few days since I wrote the last time. I’m hoping to get a few more quilts and totes in my shop before the Christmas season starts up. Just finished a Christmas lap quilt and should have pictures and a listing in a day or two. And there’s a queen size quilt in the dryer right now. 🙂 I can’t wait to see how it turns out! The fabrics I used have a shabby floral look in pinks, ecrus, and taupe. So pretty! Now, I’m excited to start a custom order in a couple of days. It’s for two window seat rag quilts. I think the fabrics that the customer picked out are going to be very nice for her husband’s office.

I hope you all love this tote as much as I do! It has a vintage look to it with the ecru and maroon prints. Hope someone buys it soon or I might be tempted to keep it for myself. 😉 You can read more about it here.
Just finished listing this quilt in my etsy shop. A sewing friend asked me what fabrics I used. They are from the Moda 3 Sisters Double Chocolat collection. I checked and they are out of print now. 😥 I probably have enough to make one or two more quilts. I sure wish designers would bring back some of these beautiful fabrics. I’d be first in line to buy them. I have my eye on this collection and a blue and white collection that I used a few years ago. I should have bought much more, but I didn’t realize how popular they would be. You can find this pretty quilt here. Let me know if you are interested in a different size and I can check to see if I have enough.
I’ve been working on this quilt for a few days and should have pictures and a listing in a day or two. I used beautiful Moda fabrics for this one. The colors are so rich and lovely. I especially like the blue squares. The blue is a dusky blue and it gives this quilt an antiquey feel.
Here’s the finished patchwork tote and it’s just been listed in my shop. I have sooo many extra 5″ fabric squares that have just been sitting in a rubbermaid box. I pulled 9 different prints and used them in this patchwork rag quilt tote. I tried to keep the prints in the same color families. I think it turned out pretty. Just 1000+ squares to go! 😯

Here are my three newest listings, two baby rag quilts and a tote…..please click on the picture to go to the etsy listing.
I started this rag quilt tote yesterday. When I cut out fabric for a tote, I end up with lots of extra 5″ squares. Paul suggested I start taking those squares and putting them together in a patchwork quilt look. So, I grabbed a few different prints and started this one. I think it’s going to be really pretty. It will make a great tote for next spring and summer.
I’ve added a page here on my website for custom orders – fabrics for custom orders. You’ll be able to pick out fabrics that you’d like me to use in a rag quilt or a tote. Just let me know the number of the picture when you message me. We can talk about all the specifics (size, price, finish date) and I can set up a listing on Etsy and get started making a special quilt or tote just for you. Here are some pictures of just a few of the custom orders I’ve made.
