April Customer Quilts

>> Thursday, May 1, 2008

Well, April flew by way too quickly, and here are the pictures of my customer quilts. Between quilts, I tried to sell my old house, settle in to my new house, keep my kids dressed in clean clothes, and in all my spare time I tried to work on my own quilting projects. (My list of unfinished projects I am working on has not changed a bit.)
On the calendar for may is the "Sister's Weekend" (no, not Sisters, Oregon), but all the Kartchner girls will be getting together for a few fun days and nights of quilting, food, movies, and lots of laughs--you know, good girl bonding time. We like to make the same quilt pattern each time, but with our own personal choice of fabric, so it's fun to see how different and cute all the quilts are when we are finished. Of course, I get to quilt them all, so look for them on my May posting of customer quilts. Who knows, they may even get their very own post! This year, we loved the "Double Denim" pattern (available at Red Rooster by Anita Cranney) so much that we decided that would be the qulit to make for "Sister's" this year. It's very easy, and has lots of potential for creativity. Some of us may use denim, some not. We'll just have to see. Here's a picture of the Double Denim I did for a customer this month:

Aggie Star" for Utah State University. The corner blocks are embroidered with Old Main.

And, here's the back of the "Aggie Star"--my favorite part, because I did it on a solid navy Kona Cotton, and the quilting really stands out!

Another Spring Fling table topper from Lehi


About . . .

Quilting is good therapy. It all started about 18 years ago when I had two little kiddos running around the house in diapers and spent my days as a stay-at-home mom. I soon discovered that I needed something more interesting than sorting laundry to keep me going. That's when I discovered the joy of quilting. Now, years down the road, I've added another kiddo to the mix. We've said goodbye to diapers and hello to driver's licenses and college (yikes!), and I have many quilts behind me. I now have a studio in my basement with a long-arm machine where I keep myself busy quilting for others and for myself, too, when I get the time. I hope you enjoy looking at what I've been working on!
